LITHIUM BATTERY FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
The rapid development of technology has led to the widespread adoption of lithium batteries in more ways than one.
While these batteries have revolutionised the way we power our modern world and have become increasingly ingrained in our daily routines , finding applications in laptops, smart phones, tablets, electric vehicles, and more, these also pose a fire risk that needs an all new approach to firefighting.
On one hand, where lithium batteries boast numerous advantages, including high energy density, extended durability, and swift recharging capabilities.
These batteries also contain flammable electrolytes, making them susceptible to thermal runaway and potential ignition when subjected to physical damage, overcharging, or manufacturing defects.
Fires in batteries pose such a tremendous challenge that all conventional methods of firefighting fail to address this challenge.
Risks Associated With Lithium Batteries
Fire: Lithium batteries can catch fire if they are damaged, overcharged, or short-circuited.
Thermal runaway: This can result from overcharging, over-discharging, or overheating li-ion batteries during use/recharge.
Toxic fumes: Lithium batteries can release toxic fumes if they are damaged or burned.
Environmental impact: Lithium batteries are not environmentally friendly to produce or dispose of.
The distinctive characteristics of fires involving lithium batteries demand specialised firefighting solutions as these fires have a heightened potential for re-ignition.
Traditional fire fighting methods may prove ineffective in dealing with such incidents which stem from the fact that lithium-ion batteries house inflammable electrolytes, which can react with water or foam, potentially exacerbating the situation.
What's needed is a solution that not only rapidly cools the affected area but also provides a protective blanketing effect over the batteries, preventing re-ignition.
Ceasefire offers the most effective solution for combating such fires.
Specifically engineered for Lithium Battery fires, Ceasefire li-ion battery fire extinguishers provide a versatile and comprehensive fire extinguishing capability.
Our water-based agent not only swiftly and effectively combats lithium battery fires but also stands out as an environmentally conscious choice.
Engineered to rapidly cool and encapsulate the flames, this biodegradable agent with no PFOS / PFAS minimises damage to the surrounding environment.
Ceasefire Lithium Battery Fire Extinguishers that come in 2 ltr , 3 ltr, 6 ltr, 9 ltr & 50 Ltr are also user-friendly, making them well-suited for both residential and commercial use.
