Lith-Ex AVD Fire Extinguishers

Fires involving Lithium batteries cannot be extinguished with regular extinguishing agents, because when a battery goes into ‘thermal runaway’, it goes into thermal rampage, so to speak. This is accompanied by very high temperatures and a lot of gas formation. The Lith-Ex AVD fire extinguishers have been specially developed for quickly and safely controlling lithium-ion battery fires. 

Lith-Ex AVD has been specially developed
for extinguishing battery fires

  • ​Specially developed for battery fires
  • Cools and shuts off oxygen supply
  • Proven to be the most effective extinguishing agent for battery fires
  • Completely eco-friendly
  • Also very effective with class A fires
  • Available from 2 liters to 100 liters extinguishing units

How does the AVD extinguisher work?

AVD stands for a water-based dispersion containing chemically exfoliated vermiculite. When sprayed on lithium battery fires, it extinguishes the flames and prevents further fire spread, effectively halting the progression of "thermal runaway."

Vermiculite, a key ingredient, is a naturally occurring non-combustible mineral that poses no toxicity risks to humans, animals, or the environment.

Lithium Battery Suppression Kit

The Lithium Battery Suppression Kit is designed to swiftly and safely handle battery-related incidents in enclosed spaces. This kit enables the rapid extinguishing of fires and safe storage of the device using heat-resistant gloves. Even if the battery reignites, an incombustible bag prevents damage to the surroundings. Tested with batteries at 100% charge and capacities exceeding 400Wh, while airline passengers are allowed to carry unregistered batteries up to 160Wh. The suppression kit provides a solution for the use and storage of electronic devices in confined spaces, originally crafted for aviation but also suitable for applications in the maritime sector, subways, and various other settings.
