Workplaces have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their premises and staff. A rising issue for business owners, health and safety officers, and responsible people, is the threat of Lithium-ion battery fires in a multitude of industries. This is where Lithium-ion battery fire suppression granules and Lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers can give peace of mind and protection.

Understanding the Risks

As you may know, the increasing use of Lithium-ion batteries in various devices has undoubtedly brought numerous advancements. However, with this technology’s growth, the risk of fire incidents has also risen significantly. A single battery malfunction can quickly escalate into a devastating fire, putting lives at risk and causing irreparable damage to your business.

Organisations at risk include emergency fire and rescue services, courier services and logistics providers, recycling centres and consumer recycling points, transport operators and passenger hubs, and aerospace OEMs.

Introducing Firechief PyroFlow Fire Suppression Granules

These Lithium-ion battery fire suppression granules are specifically designed to smother and suppress lithium-ion battery fires rapidly. Their unique composition acts swiftly to eliminate the flames at their source, minimizing damage and reducing downtime in your workplace.

Firechief PyroFlow is a new and environmentally friendly suppression agent made from expanded glass granulate. It can be used for firefighting and preventative fire protection. It contains tiny internal pores which form a partially closed cell structure. Since the granulate is 100% mineral-based, it is non-combustible.

There are two products in the range: Active and Passive.

The PyroFlow Active Fire Suppression Granules can be used to fight and suppress fires in Lithium-ion battery cells and flammable metals. It is used once a fire has broken out, effectively binding liquids and filtering gases.

Alternatively, the PyroFlow Passive Fire Suppression Granules can be used as a thermally stable packaging filler when Lithium-ion batteries are present. The granules will melt in the case of thermal runaway, smothering, suppressing, and encapsulating the Lithium-ion battery or batteries.

The Firechief Pyroflow products are the most affordable, effective way to contain and isolate Lithium-ion battery fires.

They are eco-friendly, non-toxic, easy to use and lightweight.
