Beware of Magnesium Components in Today’s Cars

Car Fires – Beware of Magnesium Components in Today’s Cars

Many of the fires firefighters respond to are car fires and today’s car fires must be approached with great caution. To make cars lighter for better fuel mileage, many components are made of Class D magnesium.  Applying water or foam will cause a dangerous explosion that could cause injury to the firefighter or damage to expensive gear.

In this video, you will see firefighters confronted with a fully involved, magnesium steering column burning at over 5,000ºF. For many reasons, we recommend car fires be approached with a 3% solution of F-500 Encapsulator Agent. These firefighters were using only 1% F-500 EA, and yet you will see there were no explosions. It just took a little longer to cool the magnesium.

Using F-500 EA on car fires not only provides that extra margin of safety from explosive magnesium, but also is recommended by third parties for today’s lithium-ion battery, hybrid and electric cars. And if there’s a fuel spill, F-500 EA will not only extinguish both polar Class B ethanol-blended E10 and nonpolar Class B diesel fuel, but it will safely encapsulate the fuel spill, allowing the fuel to quickly evaporate without the fear of ignition.

Watch this important video.

How Cooling with F500 EA Extinguishes Fires

The Importance of Cooling to Extinguish a Fire

You may think water does a great job of cooling a fire, but water does not cool efficiently and creates a lot of dangerous steam. Foams are designed to form a blanket to separate the fuel from the oxygen, but foam traps in the heat, often resulting in reignition.

There is one, unique solution – F-500 Encapsulator Agent.

Just 1-3% F-500 EA changes the cooling mechanism of water from steam conversion to thermal conveyance. This means there is no scalding steam, just a warm vapor. F-500 EA also greatly reduces smoke, increasing visibility and removing up to 98% of the cancer-causing toxins.

With its ability to extinguish fires three ways; removing the heat, encapsulating fuels and interrupting the free radical chain reaction, F-500 Encapsulator Agent is well-suited to Class A, Class B polar and nonpolar, Class D and three-dimensional fires, and is the only agent recommended by multiple organizations for lithium-ion battery fires and transformer fires.

Watch the video to see how F-500 EA extinguishes a fire without touching the flames. By simply removing the heat, F-500 EA rapidly extinguishes the fire.  Remove the heat; remove the fire!

Titanium is No Match for F500 EA and the TKO Nozzle

firefighters

Never apply water to a Class D fire, unless you add 3% F-500 Encapsulator Agent. The F-500 EA prevents the water from separating into explosive hydrogen and oxygen.  The F-500 EA molecules form a protective skin around the water droplets and rapidly absorb the heat.  Foam, powders and sand will take a very long time to extinguish Class D fires, because they don’t remove the heat.

Watch this impressive video using a modest 20 gpm TKO Nozzle, with F-500 Encapsulator Agent and an eductor built in to the nozzle.

Quickly and Safely Extinguishing Car Fires

TeslaFire

This video shows F-500 Encapsulator Agent at only ½% extinguishing this car fire in about 5 seconds. Notice how fast the temperature drops from 2000ºF to 78 ºF in seconds.

According to NFPA, 15% of the calls firefighters make are car fires, and today’s car fires are more challenging than ever. Shouldn’t you have the best tools available?

Magnesium Components – F-500 EA will not explode, like when using water or foam. It rapidly cools and extinguishes Class D steering columns, dashboards and door frames.

Lithium-ion Batteries – Only F-500 EA has been recommended by independent companies for today’s hybrid and electric car fires, minimizing the amount of water needed.

Polar and Nonpolar Fuels – You don’t need AFFF for diesel fuel and AR-AFFF for ethanol-blended fuels. F-500 EA extinguishes both fuels. If there’s a fuel spill, the F-500 EA encapsulates the fuel, rendering it nonflammable. Firefighters can safely work the scene and traffic can continue.

Watch this impressive video.

Watch F500 EA Extinguish Flowing 3D Class B Fire in Seconds

refinery_fire

NFPA 11, Annex A.1.1 –

“Foam is not suitable for three-dimensional flowing liquid fuel fires or for gas fires.”

This excellent video shows a demonstration at a refinery in Italy of a typical three-dimensional flowing liquid fuel fire. Foam could not build a blanket to smother this fire. F-500 Encapsulator Agent rapidly cools the fuel and structure. Remove the heat; extinguish the fire. F-500 EA encapsulates the fuel, rendering it nonflammable and it interrupts the free radical chain reaction, removing the black smoke and almost all of the cancer-causing toxins.

Solar Panel Fires Need F500 Encapsulator Agent

roof top solar panels

You have homes and businesses in your area with solar panels. Whether the building or the solar panels are on fire, you should be concerned.  If the sun is shining, the panels are electrified.  Be safe – use F-500 EA for all solar panel fires.

ConEdison and FDNY found F-500 Encapsulator Agent was the only agent tested that could be applied to energized transformers, tested at 345 kV with negligible electrical feedback to the nozzle. Transformers should be de-energized before fighting transformer fires, but the margin of safety is there for the firefighters, in case nearby equipment is energized.  Remember, foam is highly conductive and should never be used for these fires.

Solar panels often have lithium-ion battery storage.  If these batteries are on fire, again, you want to use F-500 EA.  Multiple companies have tested, recommended and use F-500 EA for lithium-ion battery protection.

Reducing Smoke Virtually Eliminates Cancer Causing Toxins

warehouse fire in Böblingen, Germany

You can easily reduce cancer-causing toxins in smoke by applying 1-3% F-500 Encapsulator Agent in the water stream. This reduces the carcinogens everyone on the fire scene is exposed to. Independent tests show toxins are reduced 98.6% and smoke is reduced 97%. Plus, the scalding steam quickly turns into a warm vapor.

This should be a major concern for every firefighter.

It’s not magic; just a unique solution – F-500 Encapsulator Agent.

F-500 EA extinguishes fires three ways. In addition to removing the heat and encapsulating fuels, F-500 EA interrupts the free radical chain reaction. This reduces the airborne particulates, greatly reducing toxins in the smoke. F-500 Encapsulator Agent is well-suited to Class A, Class B polar and nonpolar, Class D, three-dimensional fires, and is the only agent recommended for lithium-ion battery and transformer fires.

Watch the video to see how F-500 EA quickly changes the black smoke to a warm, white vapor. This means the cancer-causing toxins are reduced.
