How it works: Complete system is delivered to your race shop in either "Charged" or "Uncharged" mode.
"Charged" mode means the actual bottle arrives to the racer ready to use. The chemicals and additional water are installed at the ESS facilities, sealed and an SFI label is attached to satisfy any sanctioning bodies who mandate this spec.
"Uncharged" mode is easily charged by the racer at his shop. Simply fill the extinguisher bottle with the provided chemicals and tap water. Detailed instructions are provided.
In case of emergency...the driver pulls the activation handle, this pierces the external CO2 cartridge which is directed into the extinguisher bottle. The released CO2 pressure forces the chemical/water mixture out of the bottle and through the aluminum lines which are routed throughout the race vehicle. A layer of foam is sprayed from the nozzles which in turn, aids in the suppression of potential or present spark or flame.
A few of the advantages of the ESS (Emergency Suppression System) type suppression system are, if activated, the foam is easily cleaned off any surface and the ESS system can be quickly refilled with the recharge kit.
Approved for NASA, SCCA, ChumpCar and most Off Road, Oval Track and Land Speed sanctioning bodies.
