Clean Agent Extinguishers

Clean Agent Extinguishers
Clean Agent extinguishers displace oxygen (CO2 or inert gases), remove heat from a combustion zone (Halotron or FE-36) or inhibit chemical chain reactions (Halons). They are considered clean agents because they do not leave any residue, making them ideal for sensitive electronics and documents.

Halotron extinguishers
Halotron extinguishers are suitable for use in computer rooms, telecommunications and high-tech clean rooms. They meet EPA and government requirements for a “clean agent alternative.”

FE-36 extinguishers
FE-36 extinguishers are similar to Halotron extinguishers in operation and use.

Halon (including Halon 1211 and Halon 1301)
Halon (including Halon 1211 and Halon 1301) extinguishers employ a gaseous agent that inhibits the chemical reaction of the fire. They were banned from new production, except for military use, as of January 1, 1994, but reuse is still permitted.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) extinguishers
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) extinguishers contain carbon dioxide, a non-flammable gas, and are highly pressurized. Because they don't leave a harmful residue, they are a good choice for an electrical fire on a computer, stereo or television.
