IS IT TIME TO SWITCH TO A HALON 1301 ALTERNATIVE SYSTEM?
There are no legal requirements that end users remove Halon 1301 systems from service, and systems can be legally recharged in the event of a discharge.
Since Halon alternatives are generally more costly and require significantly more agent to achieve the same effectiveness as Halon, demand for Halon continues in the home, vehicle, industrial and commercial markets.
A potential drawback of Halon 1301 systems is that the agent, cylinder head rebuild kits and other parts can be difficult to obtain quickly. This is a significant drawback in the event of a discharge, particularly for power generation plants and other facilities where regulations require extra around-the-clock security until the system is back on line. The H3R Clean Agents Fire Suppression System Backup Program
provides the solution to this problem.
