FIRE AND HAZMAT RESPONSE

HazMat • Fire Safety • Regulatory Compliancy

Stored energy is increasingly present in our communities – from small hand held devices to large EV batteries and power walls. While lithium-ion technology is generally safe, it nonetheless poses a dormant, but potentially devastating threat to public safety. CellBlock FCS specializes in providing tools to address a battery fire when it occurs, as well as the necessary means to clean up after an event. Understanding how these products work is essential to success.

CellBlockEX Technology

The core technology of CellBlock’s fire-suppression solutions is CellBlockEX, an environmentally-friendly, mineral-based extinguishing agent used for fire fighting and prevention of problematic fires including metal, lithium-ion battery cells, and combustible liquids.

CellBlockEX may be used for isolated fires as a stand-alone extinguisher, and should be a component of a proactive protocol in homes and businesses. Methods of deployment include:

  • Pour directly over safely approachable fires involving lithium-ion batteries.
  • Place fire suppression pillows containing CellBlockEX over the battery, cell, or device.
  • Place a bag of CellBlockEX over the battery, cell, or device.

Numerous CellBlock FCS products have CellBlockEX deployment built-in.

HazMat Drums

Cleanup after a lithium-ion battery fire presents a unique set of challenges:

  • Lithium-ion batteries have the capacity to reignite hours, or even days, after a battery fire.
  • Lithium-ion batteries are difficult to dispose of – the transport of damaged batteries is highly regulated.

CellSafe drums address both these issues and are an invaluable tool for battery fire cleanups. Damaged batteries may be overpacked with CellBlockEX in these drums to provide a safe means of storing
