Marine fires can be catastrophic. They often escalate quickly, causing costly damage to equipment, facilities, and even the environment. Most small vessel fires start in engine or machinery spaces, and electrical controls. Such locations are typically small compartments with many obstructions making firefighting difficult.
That’s why more owners and operators protect marine assets with advanced fire suppression systems. Today, expert naval architects specify fire protection that is effective but also meets requirements for space and weight, quality and cost, and low maintenance. These qualities are all found in Stat-X® fire suppression systems. It’s why Stat-X is the best solution for the demanding marine environment.
The Solution: Stat-X Fire Suppression Advanced Technology
Stat-X aerosol fire suppression is a versatile and cost-effective solution for marine and offshore fire protection. Each sealed, stainless steel generator contains a solid, stable, and specially formulated fire suppression compound unmatched in the industry. When a fire occurs, the Stat-X generator activates, producing and releasing an advanced aerosol fire suppression agent. Agent fills the protected space and chemically interrupts the combustion process. Fire is suppressed, and the micron-sized agent particles remain suspended to help keep the space protected from possible re-flash.
Stat-X generators come in a range of compact, rugged, non-pressurized units. Modular design allows configuration by mixing and matching units to protect a variety of spaces, from small to large. Electrically actuated models work with popular linear, aspirating, or spot detection and control systems. Thermal and manual actuation models require no external power source to operate.
Economical and Safer
Compared to traditional pressurized gas or chemical agent piped systems Stat-X advanced technology is economical to install and own. No special storage space or distribution piping is needed. And since the Stat-X agent is generated only when the system actuates, you don’t have regular agent level inspections or containers to weigh and hydro-test over the years. When discharged, the aerosol agent remains buoyant protecting the space longer. Afterwards, the area can be vented with no harmful by-products generated. Spent Stat-X units are simply replaced and the system can be restored.
