DSPA AEROSOL IS UNIQUELY SAFE AND EFFECTIVE!
DSPA aerosol was originally developed as an alternative to Halon and other conventional extinguishing agents. DSPA Aerosol is uniquely safe and effective. The active substances of the DSPA aerosol are solid micro particles that fill the compartment completely and attack the combustion process of a fire at a chemical level. As a result, the flames are instantly knocked down and the energy removed from the fire.
The amount of extinguishing agent required is significantly less than that of conventional extinguishing agents like CO2, FM200, Inergen etc. Additionally DSPA aerosol offers significant installation and maintenance savings: It does not require any pressure vessels, manifolds, nozzles or pipe work. Furthermore, unlike other agents, DSPA is environmentally friendly.
DSPA Aerosol is an extinguishing medium of finely divided solid particles, mainly potassium particles, with a typically diameter of approx.. 2 microns. When introduced into the flaming region of a fire, the aerosol reacts with the fire radicals produced during combustion (hydrogen, oxygen, and hydroxyls) resulting in extinguishment of the fire. The small aerosol particles provide a large surface area for capturing these radicals making them effective extinguishing agents.
• The small DSPA’s ( DSPA 11-1, 11-2, 11-3 and 11-4, 12-series) have a built-in electrical starter connection for activation by an external source such as a fire panel.
• The large DSPA’s (DSPA 11-5 and 11-6, 8-series)are delivered with an external , electrical screw-in starter connection for activation by an external source such as a fire panel.
• The starter TC is a screw-in starter which contains a thermocord (10cm) instead of electrical wires for stand alone applications. • The starter TC-combi is the starter TC with 8 meters of thermocord instead of electrical wires for stand alone applications.
