Halotron I is a "clean agent" HydroChloroFluoroCarbon discharged as a rapidly evaporating liquid which leaves no residue. It effectively extinguishes Class A and B fires by cooling and smothering and it will not conduct electricity back to the operator. Halotron is pressurized with Argon gas and is an EPA approved HCFC blend agent approved on Class A, B and C fires. It has a low GWP of 0.04 - 0.24, low ODP of 0.014 (twelve times lower than the EPA maximum allowable ODP of 0.20) and low Atmospheric Lifetime (3 1/2 to 11 years). Halotron is intended for use in areas formerly protected by Halon 1211 hand portable extinguishers such as computer rooms, telecommunications facilities, clean rooms, data storage areas, offices (for protection of sensitive electronic equipment), boats and vehicles.
Firefighting foam agents suppress fire by separating the fuel from the air (oxygen). Depending on the type of foam system, this is done in several ways:
1) Foam blankets the fuel surface smothering the fire.
2) The fuel is cooled by the water content of the foam.
3) The foam blanket suppresses the release of flammable vapors that can mix with the air.
Halotron has a very low Ozone Depletion Potential.
