LiEFS® with iDetection and Suppression Technology®
LiEFS® with iDetection and Suppression Technology® is an integrated smart safety solution that has been proven to suppress a lithium fire in an early stage, and consists of a combination of unique and ultra-fast intelligent detection of a starting lithium fire. The detection is based on smoke, temperature, and CO and this ensures correct and effective suppression of a lithium fire via the fire reporting system. At the same time, the fire alarm is real time automatically communicated to the fire department and any communication device.
The smart LiEFS® technology gives you protection against fire from the outside in and from the inside out.
The suppressant in LiEFS® consists in solid matter of mainly potassium nitrate. After activation this solid matter is converted into an aerosol. This is a rapidly expanding dry aerosol that is applied into space and binds to the free radicals in the lithium fire. Aerosol ensures that the
free radicals are stabilized into molecules. This interrupts the chain reaction of the fire, and the flames are extinguished within seconds.
By removing the flames, an additional positive effect is that the temperature is suppressed preventing propagation.
In addition to lithium fires, LiEFS® is also suitable for fires of EN class A, B, C and F. The aerosol is not harmful to humans, animals, and the environment. LiEFS® with iDetection and Suppression Technology® has been extensively tested and certified by KIWA Fire Safety & Security. The tests provided evidence that in confined areas, LiEFS® with iDetection and Suppression Technology® can suppress an early-stage thermal
runaway, which is essential to control a lithium fire. KIWA Fire Safety & Security has certified LiEFS® that it can suppress a lithium fire for at least 90 minutes in an initial phase.
Lithium Safety Storage Container
Compartment is key in safe storage and handling of lithium batteries. LiEFS® has chosen to apply its certified LiEFS® with iDetection and Suppression Technology® in specially converted sea containers: Lithium Safety Storage Container. With this specially equipped container
companies that do not have a safe building or facility have an ideal mobile solution for storing, charging, discharging, repairing, assembling, and researching lithium batteries. The containers can be used both indoors and outdoors and are available in various sizes: 10, 20, 40 and
45 ft. The container is certified by KIWA Fire Safety & Security.
LiEFS® with iDetection and Suppression Technology® is also very suitable and applicable for portable application and building compartments up to 2000 m3 used for the storage, charging and/ or discharging, assembly, repair or maintenance or any other use of lithium batteries.
