Product Description

HFC-227ea is a gaseous halocarbon agent containing no particles; it leaves no oily residues on electronic equipment and can be removed from the protected space by ventilation. It is the first environmentally acceptable replacement for Halon 1301.

The present understanding of the functioning of HFC-227ea is that 80% of its fire fighting effectiveness is achieved through heat absorption and 20% through direct chemical means. HFC-227ea is stored as a liquefied compressed gas super pressurized with dry nitrogen to 25 BAR and is discharged into the protected area as a vapor.
