Aerosol systems are suitable for use in technical containers and power packs. When activated, the extinguishing systems release fine aerosols, which can then safely fight a fire in the closed area. Aerosol systems are used in areas where gas extinguishing systems with cylinders are too complex.
The extinguishing effect of the aerosol system is based on an interaction of the flames with the aerosol. In a cartridge, a defined amount of solid is stored, which is ignited electrically in the event of an alarm or initiates the extinguishing process by self-activation at approx. 300 degrees. At the same time, the flooding of the extinguishing area is practically pressureless, so that no special measures are required to relieve the pressure.
