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).

In the event you have a discharge, BFPE International will work with you to recharge your system, so that you are able to resume business with minimal interruption.

Contact BFPE International for a clean agent fire suppression system containing FE-13™. Please see the other Products and Services we offer, as well as our Total Fire Protection Agreement.

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-13™ in Total Flooding and Inerting

Class-A (solid) Hazards – FE-13™ 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-13™ can be used in areas that are normally occupied. It is especially useful where difficult Class-B fire hazards exist, such as hard-to-extinguish fuels like methanol, as well as spaces where the volume will vary with contents, like cargo holds.

Class-C (electrically energized) Hazards – FE-13™ is electrically non-conductive and non-corrosive, making it ideal for protection of areas with electrical equipment.
