FIREFIGHTING FOR LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES
A revolutionary extinguishing agent!
Lithium-ion batteries are part of our daily lives: smartphones, tablets, laptops, latest generation appliances, e-cigs, bicycles and electric scooters, cars, etc.
For our safety it’s important to know that, in the event of a failure of a lithium-ion battery, the common powder, foam or carbon dioxide extinguishers are not able to counteract, nor to extinguish the flames of a possible fire.
Thanks to the extinguishing technology of the AVD (Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion) innovative principle the fire is suffocated, preventing possible re-ignitions and propagations. For this reason, specific fire extinguishers adopting AVD protection should be used to combat lithium-ion battery fires.
GIEM Ghirardelli has always been at the forefront of the fire protection industry, and has selected for its customers the best manual firefighting device on the market: Lithium Fire, the only one really capable of extinguishing any fire caused by lithium-ion batteries.
Ghirardelli is a supplier, distributor and certified installer for Lithium Fire extinguishers.
The AVD extinguishing agent is a natural mineral-based product, vermiculite, non-toxic to humans, plants and animals.
The water contained in the dispersion absorbs the heat, helping extinguishing the fire, while the vermiculite forms a film around the battery, isolating it from the oxygen present in the air and cooling it further, thus preventing re-ignition.
