Original Press Release:
Mobile Halotron Rigs Replace Halon Units
A mobile fire-fighting unit that replaces problem-plagued Halon systems with environment-friendly Halotron has been introduced by Fire Combat of Minneapolis.
Called Halotron/I, it meets all pertinent EPA and FAA requirements.
Mounted on a pickup bed or trailer, Halotron/I can be easily and quickly moved to quench even stubborn blazes. (Alternately, Halotron/I can be mounted on a skid to give on-site protection for, say, aircraft hangars, offshore platforms, turbine/generator sets, transformer vaults and the like.) Halotron/I has a 300-cf cylinder carrying compressed argon teamed with a 460-pound Halotron-filled tank. In operation, the pressurized argon spews out the Halon at 225 psi, effectively smothering a fire.
Halotron/I comes ready to work with the argon-filled cylinder, Halotron tank, 100 feet of reinforced hose on a manual or electric rewind reel, wide-angle nozzle, and all necessary gages and controls. Attachments are brass or corrosion-resistant finish for extra-long life.
Halotron/I units are available in a wide color choice including standard red, yellow, white, lime green plus Air Force blue, Navy grey or Army and Marine olive drab.
Over-all dimensions are 68 inches long, 48 inches high and 36 inches wide. Empty weight is 1000 pounds; working (filled) weight is 1500 pounds.
