Advatages of PRT's Halon Blend Units over Gauged Units
These are the advantages of the 1211/1301 Halon blend (Non-Rechargeable) units over the conventional Halon 1211 rechargeable gauge units.
Foam Portable Extinguishers
Because of their special formulation, Protection R.T. extinguishers are especially effective on Kitchen oil and grease fires. They are designed not only for rapid extinguishment, but also to prevent flashback, or re-ignition of fuel. For example, some extinguishers are not effective to prevent flashback on hot grease fires, but PRT foam units with the special ingredients(surfactants & emulsifiers) completely coat and emulsify the oil/grease surface thus preventing re-ignition.
Automatic Liquefied Gas Extinguishers
Protection R.T.’s Underwriters’ Laboratories listed automatic fire extinguishers are designed for fixed installation in a relatively closed area. The units consists of an cylinder, a charge of extinguishant, a pressure gauge, a sprinkler head (with or without high pressure hose extensions) for automatic discharge at a specific temperature, and a wire guard to protect the sprinkler head.
Liquified Gas Commercial Units
Incendex commercial/industrial fire extinguishers all have a pressure gauge and all, except Model 1600, contain a unique blend of liquefied gas 1211/1301 which results in a more effective fire fighting agent.
(Incendex is a registered trade mark of Protection R.T. Inc.)
These 1211/1301 commercial extinguishers can continue to operate adequately even with loss of inert gas propellant, due to the unique blend used.
