FE-25™ Fire Extinguishing Agent is a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) with the ASHRAE designation of HFC-125 and is manufactured by Chemours. Chemically, it is pentafluoroethane, CHF2-CF3. It does not contain bromine, like Halon 1301 (CF3Br), which is the component identified as contributing to the depletion of the earth’s ozone layer. With zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), FE-25™ is environmentally preferred.
FE-25™ is an acceptable Halon 1301 alternative. Its chemical and physical properties most closely resemble those of Halon 1301 making FE-25™ the first choice when retrofitting an existing Halon 1301 system.
BFPE International maintains a stock of FE-25™. In the event you have a discharge, we are able to recharge your system so that you are able to resume business with minimal interruption.
Primary Advantages of Clean Agent Systems – Ability To:
Extinguish any fire – including those that are shielded or obstructed.
Fill an enclosure providing uniform distribution of the agent and suppression of the fire.
Extinguish fires early through detection and well before smoke/fire damage.
Leave no residue behind, causing no collateral damage.
It’s business as usual.
Use of FE-25™ in Total Flooding
Class-A (solid) Hazards – FE-25™ can be used where people are normally present or normally occupied spaces, which represent more than 90% of the applications utilizing clean agent fire suppression systems for fire protection.
Class-B (liquid and gas) Hazards – FE-25™ can be used in areas that are not normally occupied or that have limited access.
Class-C (electrically energized) Hazards – FE-25™ is electrically non-conductive and non-corrosive, making it ideal for protection of areas with electrical equipment.
