The Stat-X First Responder® is environmentally friendly. It has no ozone depletion potential and no global warming potential. Additionally, Stat-X® is approved under SNAP program by the EPA, and also EPA listed as a Halon alternative.
The Stat-X First Responder® does not reduce oxygen levels, as fire suppression is achieved through interference between the ultra-fine aerosol particulate and the flame’s free radicals — terminating the propagation of the fire.
Coverage will be dependent on the specific characteristics of the situation encountered — class of fire, level of involvement, areas of potential leakage, etc. Tests have shown significant suppression effects up to an 8 ft high x 10 ft x 10 ft room — around 20 cubic meters. More units would be required for a larger volume or spaces with excessive leakage. The aerosol flows and spreads rapidly throughout the volume — in a manner similar to a gas. However, since the aerosol is buoyant, more may be required in a high ceiling situation. The Stat-X First Responder® is most effective when thrown directly at or near the fire.

Can Something This Small Actually Extinguish Fires?
The Stat-X® compound is the most effective fire extinguishing agent currently available — many times more effective than conventional agents by mass. The Stat-X First Responder® contains the same compound used in our UL listed fixed fire extinguishing units. However, due to the tremendous variability of conditions in a firefighting situation, the purpose of the First Responder is, first and foremost, for use as an extremely effective tool to suppress and limit the growth of fires until other traditional methods are available to put out the fire — any extinguishment is a bonus.
The small size of the First Responder® makes it easily portable. In the event of a fire, First Responder units are activated by removing the safety clip and pulling the ring pin. The unit can then be thrown near the fire, where it will actuate following a 4 second time delay.
Upon activation, the First Responder produces an exceptionally effective, ultra-fine, potassium based aerosol that provides extremely fast knock-down and rapid suppression of fires.
On an agent weight basis, Stat-X® aerosol is significantly more effective than other agent alternatives. It does not reduce the oxygen levels, and fire suppression is achieved through interference between the ultra-fine aerosol particulate and the flame’s free radicals — terminating propagation of the fire.
The agent will hang in suspension after delivery providing ongoing suppression capabilities.
