Fire protection solution for lithium-ion battery storage
Lithium-ion batteries are at special risk of fire due to thermal runaway
Lithium-ion batteries play an integral role in our daily lives, powering a wide range of electric applications from smartphones and electric cars to large-scale energy storage. There are, however, serious risks associated with lithium-ion technology. Lithium-ion batteries contain high energy density in small spaces and therefore present a significant fire threat. The batteries are at special risk of thermal runaway, which can lead to overheating and release of highly toxic and flammable gasses.
The VID FIREKILL low pressure watermist system is an ideal solution for fire protection of lithium-ion batteries. The watermist system rapidly controls fire and prevents it from spreading to adjacent zones. The system provides cooling of the battery and controls the rise in battery temperature. The fine watermist generated provides good gas absorption and gas temperature reduction.
