Lith-Ex Fire Extinguishers

Lithium-Ion batteries are used in everyday life, and although not a common occurrence, present a difficult challenge if they were to catch fire or explode, that is unless you have a Lith-Ex fire extinguisher.

Capable of causing extensive damage and risk to life, lithium-ion batteries generally only present a risk they’re damaged, take an impact, are overcharged, or exposed to heat extremes. The chemical reaction then produces a flammable gas which can cause the device to burst into flames, and cannot be put out using a traditional fire extinguisher, including powders.

With the popularity of lithium-ion batteries increasing, and notable battery failings including the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in 2017, a suitable, safe and effective fire extinguisher was needed. These batteries are now used in phones, laptops, toys, tools, drones, mobility scooters, vehicles, boats, yachts, the aviation industry, and the storage of solar power.

How Do Lith-Ex Fire Extinguishers Work?

Using a non-toxic and revolutionary extinguishing agent known as AVD – Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion – it is deployed as a mist. When sprayed over the battery, it then creates a film over the surface which instantly dries and creates an oxygen barrier, meaning the fire burns itself out, cools and prevents re-ignition.

As yet, there is no official fire class which is designed for lithium-ion batteries (sometimes the fire industry is a little slow to catch up). This means that these fire extinguishers are unable to display a fire rating, display a British Kitemark, or be approved to BS EN3. However, you can rest assured that these fire extinguishers have undergone extensive testing, are CE Marked, and still made in accordance with the BS EN3 requirements.

Available in a range of sizes, from 400ml to 9 litres, you can have adequate protection for your mobile phone, solar panel batteries and everything in between. In fact, the 400ml Lith-Ex fire extinguisher even won a new product innovation award in 2016.
