In NFPA-10 they haven't included standards for Halotron fire extinguishers, why? And how can I study the standard comparison of Halotron-CO2 fire extinguishers?
This website compares the various fire extinguishment agents.
Types of Fire Extinguishers – The Fire Equipment Manufacturers’ Association
General fire extinguisher coverage for health care occupancy should be 2A:10BC for each extinguisher
To me a CO2 extinguisher has it limits and should not be used for general coverage in health care occupancies
The Halotron is a clean agent type.Halogenated or Clean Agent extinguishers include the halon agents as well as the newer and less ozone depleting halocarbon agents. The size of the Halotron extinguisher may be problem to get the 2A classification.
I don't know. But you are in the electrical forum. Try posting in Building & Life Safety.
Excerpt from 2018 NFPA 10: The "Halotron" is product name for the halocarbon types in referred in paragraph 6.
Any specific considerations for CO2/Halotron comparison for Healthcare Occupanices?
