STAT-X Aerosol Fire Suppression Systems
Jay L Harman Fire Equipment Company offers Stat-X Aerosol Fire Suppression Systems. Due to their fast response time, compact size, low fire extinguishing concentration, and environmental safety, Stat-X fire suppression systems may be used in critical applications across a wide range of industries — especially in areas where weight and space savings are important.
Stat-X is extremely effective. Tests on class B fires have shown it to be 5 times more effective than halon and 10+ times more effective than other currently available halon alternatives. This dramatically reduces weight and space requirements.
Stat-X Fire Suppression System Applications
Stat-X is an aerosol and shares many of the flow characteristics of a gas. It is suitable for use in un-occupied and normally unoccupied enclosed volumes and has the added advantages of extended hold times and less susceptibility to leakage. In addition, Unlike HFC's, which can break down and produce deleterious compounds such as hydrofluoric acid when exposed to elevated temperatures, Stat-X does not break down when exposed to a fire. Stat-X products are suitable for a host of different applications, including but not limited to:
- Gas turbine enclosures
- Diesel generator rooms
- Switch gear rooms
- Wind turbine nacelles and power rooms
- Battery rooms (lead acid) / lithium ion
- Generator rooms
- Electric machine rooms
- Cable trays and electric cabinets
TRANSPORTATION - BUS

How Stat-X Works
Unlike other agents that work by reducing oxygen levels or by cooling, the aerosol extinguishes by chemical interaction with the free radicals that fuel the growth of the fire — in the same manner as halon did. The aerosol stream contains ultra-fine (1-2 micron) particles of potassium compounds that provide a large surface area interaction with the fire. In the fire zone the free potassium radicals bind with the free radicals of the fire (O, OH, H) to rapidly slow and extinguish the fire. The ultra-fine aerosol flows like a gas, and extinguishes by chemical interference with the flame’s free radicals. Because of its ultra-fine particle size, the aerosol hangs in suspension for up to 60 minutes, and it can be vented by fan or air-handling system after discharge.
The Stat-X generators are self-contained, eliminating the need for expensive pressure vessels, piping, and installation manpower. This significantly reduces both initial installation and ongoing maintenance costs.
Environmental and Health Issues for Stat-X Aerosol Generators
There are no environmental issues associated with the use of Stat-X aerosol generators. Both the Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and Global Warming Potential (GWP) are zero.
