FE-13™ Fire Extinguishing Agent is a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) with the ASHRAE designation of HFC-23 and is manufactured by Chemours. Chemically, it is trifluoromethane, CHF3. 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-13™ is environmentally preferred.
FE-13™ is the preferred Halon 1301 replacement in total flooding and inerting applications where its low toxicity provides for improved safety margins, the protected space is large (approved for nozzle heights up to 25 feet), the cylinder storage area is remote from the protected space, or where the temperature range is extreme -40F (-40C) to 130F (54.4C).
