At the University of Leuven in Belgium are Lithium Ion batteries being put to the test in 6 climate chambers of Hielkema Testequipment. These climate chambers are all secured against thermal runaway using off-gas detection with Siemens FDA241 in combination with ExxFire pressureless Nitrogen gas. This is the only certified safety concept in the world preventing Lithium Ion fires.
Aperam is global leader in the aluminium industry. Business continuity is the key factor. We are pleased to announce our first installation with our electrical cabinet protection solution: Exxfire! We would like to thank our client APERAM S&S Luxembourg for their trust, as well as all our teams for their work. This compact detection and extinguishing solution is especially effective on this type of risk. It allows reliable and rapid protection of production tools without creating additional damage in the event of a fire. ExxFire uses an innovative suction detection system coupled with gas extinction (Nitrogen) at room temperature and without generating overpressure. We invite you to consult our dedicated page or our teams for more details https://www.ginge-kerr.lu/exxfire-protection-armoire-electrique/.
At EXXFIRE we take safety and security very seriously. Given progressing limitations on social interactions, we have taken precautionary measures to protect our people, customers and suppliers. Our office remains open, but with minimal people and working in shifts where possible. We have postponed any physical customer or supplier meeting, adhering to the official guidelines, and have switched to video conferencing to continue operations as much as possible. The commercial organization is working from home and is fully operational for customer advice, quotations and questions. The production department continues production and assembly. As such, we continue shipping all over the world, providing fire safety solutions for business-critical enclosures even in these very difficult times.
On a more positive note, we are happy to announce that EXXFIRE has raised new financing to scale the Cool Gas Generator technology to a larger platform. Securing the supply of this revolutionary pressureless gas storage technology to the fire suppression world at an even faster pace. This new financing will support the continuity of EXXFIRE to further develop its products.
Our participation at the biggest fire show in the world, Interschutz in Hannover, Germany, from 15-20 June 2020 is postponed to June 14-19 June 2021.
We are looking forward to a fast recuperation from this terrible pandemic, to restore a safe world as we know it! Furthermore we all hope you and all your loved ones will stay in good health.
