F 500 Lithium Ion Fire Extinguisher
Our F500 lithium-ion fire extinguisher is specifically designed to tackle lithium-ion fires. As we know, the popularity of lithium-ion batteries continues to rise in various industries and everyday consumer products. It is crucial to have effective measures in place to tackle potential fire hazards. Our lithium fire extinguishers are specially designed to handle such incidents and protect lives and property. Additionally, it is highly effective in combating Class A fires, which involve solid materials like paper, wood, and textiles.
These types of fires can occur in various industries, including battery cell manufacturers, battery cell assemblers, battery cell jacket fabricators, two-wheeler/four-wheeler recharging centers, parking lots, and any industry that utilizes lithium-ion batteries, such as mobile phones, laptops, UPS systems, and other equipment.

FEATURES OF F- 500 - LITHIUM ION FIRE EXTINGUISHER
Cooling Effect: The F-500 agent mixed with water provides superior cooling, extracting heat from the fire more efficiently than pure water.
Encapsulating Agent: F-500 forms a protective layer, encapsulating toxic and combustible gases that may be released from lithium-ion batteries, ensuring safety during cleanup.
Watermist: F-500 is an additive used with water and expelled through watermist nozzles, creating smaller droplets for better fire suppression. Droplet size ranges from 30-60 microns.
Penetration: By reducing the surface tension of water, F-500 enables better penetration into the battery, maximizing extinguishing effectiveness.
Environment friendly: F-500 is an ecological agent that is non-corrosive, non-toxic, and biodegradable, minimizing its impact on the environment.
DANGERS OF LITHIUM - ION BATTERIES
Explosiveness: Lithium-ion batteries can burst into flames due to overheating, overcharging, penetration, or short circuits.
Self-sustaining: The release of oxygen from the positive electrodes allows fires to sustain themselves.
Thermal Runaway: Once a battery reaches a critical temperature, it becomes difficult to stop the chain reaction of chemical reactions, leading to increased heat and spread to other cells.
Toxic Fumes: Lithium-ion batteries emit harmful gases, including carbon monoxide, causing irritation to people and negative environmental effects.
How do you operate a F 500 Lithium Ion Fire Extinguisher
In case of any fire accident, hold the discharge hose in your left hand, pull the safety pin, aim the nozzle towards the base of fire, squeeze the squeeze lever and direct the base of fire and attack in sweeping motion.
(PASS: Pull the safety pin, Aim the nozzle towards the fire base, Squeeze the squeeze lever and attack the fire in Sweeping motion.)
