New USCG-Approved Aerosol-based fire system

Sea Fire Aerosol Based

Dec 5, 2023

Sea-Fire and Fireaway have entered into an agreement to introduce US Coast Guard-approved fixed aerosol fire suppression systems into the marine market under the Sea-Fire AT-series label. Exceptionally compact, the devices are ideal for compartments and spaces containing lithium-ion batteries, or areas that cannot accommodate a traditional fire suppression system, such as generator or compact engine compartments.

Manufactured in the USA, the Sea-Fire AT-series systems feature a patented detection mechanism that automatically discharges the highly effective aerosol agent when ambient temperatures reach fire conditions. The container incorporates double-walled stainless-steel construction rugged enough for nearly all applications. The housing is non-pressurized and sealed with a non-permeable membrane that ruptures upon activation. Upon release, the space is filled with the aerosol that quickly suppresses the fire. The device can also be activated manually.

The potassium-based aerosol agent does not produce harmful levels of CO, CO2 or NOx. EPA SNAP-listed for occupied and unoccupied spaces, the eco-friendly fire suppression solution has no ozone depletion or global warming potential.

Sea-Fire AT-series systems are easy to install for OEMs and aftermarket service personnel and don’t require labor-intensive piping and wiring. Mounting the included bracket is all that is required. AT-series systems measure from 4.3″L x 2″W to 13″L x 5″W, depending on the model.

The thermally activated devices have an operating range of 32°F to 130°F, while manually activated units operate down to -40°F. Both function in a relative humidity environment up to 98% at 95°F. Virtually maintenance-free, the durable devices have a service life of 15 years.

Sea-Fire AT-series fixed fire suppression systems are available in six model sizes from 19.4 up to 642 cubic feet of volume protection.  Additionally, up to 4 units may be linked together (only in manual activation mode) providing up to 2,568 cubic feet of volume protection.

Sea-Fire is dedicated to protecting people and property at sea. It manufactures a wide range of state-of-the-art marine fire detection and clean agent suppression systems in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 quality standards and all major type approvals. Its products are used on recreational, commercial and military vessels and shore-side structures around the world.
