 Aerosol Technologies in Fire Suppression 


Presenter:  Anthony Gee, Chief Technology Officer, Fireaway, Inc.

This presentation provides an overview of Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression Systems, designed and listed to the requirements of NFPA 2010 “Standard for Fixed Aerosol Fire-Extinguishing Systems” (first published edition in 2006).  This space age technology was recognized on the US EPA SNAP List as a Halon 1301 replacement system as early as 1995; however, this highly effective environmentally friendly fire suppression technology still remains little known by the fire protection industry today.  In 2008, UL published UL subject 2775 (now a standard), to category FWSA “Fixed Condensed Aerosol Fire Extinguishing System Units”, and several listed systems are now available on the market.  

This presentation describes the technology, the mechanism by which it extinguishes flames, brief list of performance and qualification fire tests conducted by independent laboratories and agencies, and an overview of special hazard applications where this type of system is in actual use.  

Anthony Gee serves as the Chief Technology Officer of Fireaway Inc., responsible for the engineering services and technical and training support for the Stat-X condensed aerosol products. Anthony has a degree in mechanical engineering with 30 years of domestic and international engineering, project management, and business development with fire detection and suppression systems as well as products for various well known fire protection manufacturers. HE has extensive experience in the design and supply of fire protection systems for special hazard applications and in the development of state-of-the-art products for the fire protection market including gaseous, water-mist, and aerosol fire suppression systems. Anthony is a member of the NFPA 2010 technical committee and SFPE.
