Halotron is a “Clean Agent” HydroChloroFluoroCarbon (HCFC) 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 pressurised with Argon gas and is an EPA and FAA approved agent suitable for use on Class A, B and E 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 a low Atmospheric Lifetime (31/2 to 11 years).
Halotron is intended for use in areas formerly protected by Halon 1211 (BCF) hand portable extinguishers such as computer rooms, telecommunications facilities, clean rooms, data storage areas, offices (for protection of sensitive electronic equipment), boats and vehicles.
