X-Tinguish FST X-Tinguish FST Advanced Aerosol Firefighting Tool

X-Tinguish FST

The X- Tinguish  ® FST       
X-Tinguish FST on fire ground with first responders
The World’s Most Advanced Aerosol Firefighting Tool!


The X-Tinguish FST improves safety on the fire ground and for first responders!

If you ask your Chief what keeps them up at night?
I bet most would agree, the safety of their firefighters is always on their mind.

In 2016 public fire departments responded to 1,342,000 fires and 475,500 were structure fires. Every 24 seconds, a United States fire department responded to a fire somewhere in the nation putting yet another firefighter in harm’s way.

With the X-Tinguish FST you can fight a fire without putting anyone in danger.
The first-in is not usually an engine crew. Deploying an FST can give you the needed time until an engine crew arrives on scene and is ready to fight the fire.



The X-Tinguish FST buys time for every crew that utilizes it!

What is the FST?
The X-TINGUISH® FST is a small, portable unit that contains potassium based chemical components. It is designed to be a first-use method to combat class A, B, C, and K fires.

When the device is deployed at the scene of a fire, the X-TINGUISH® FST releases a cloud of aerosol containing the potassium components, interrupting the chain reaction in the flame.

When utilized and deployed according to the instructions in the Operation Manual, the FST provides an extremely effective method of fire suppression.

While no device can prevent or totally suppress the harmful effects of a fire, the X-TINGUISH® FST is a unique way to combat fires and represents a giant advance in fire-suppression technology from water or other chemical-based methods.

How does the FST work?
The X-Tinguish FST aerosol acts very similarly to Halon without the negative safety concerns .

After triggering the X-Tinguish® FST generator, an aerosol mist is generated, which expands volumetrically, flooding the space and suppressing the flames within seconds.

When a compartment is filled with a minimum quantity of extinguishing agent, it will act directly on the ignition mechanism of the flame. The solid material of the FST system, (Potassium aerosol particulates) as opposed to gas systems, enables interaction with the surface of the burning material. Consequently, the flames are rapidly extinguished and massive amounts of heat are quickly absorbed.

The X-Tinguish FST aerosol does not affect the ozone layer, lower the oxygen level, or augment the pressure in any enclosure where it is activated. The process relies upon solids with a high activating energy brought together in a normal atmosphere.

How does Xtinguish FST work
FST works simultaneously on three components of the fire tetrahedron; heat, fuel, and the chemical reaction while oxygen levels are unaffected.

During combustion, free radicals and unstable atoms are formed. This elemental formation allows fire to exist.

Xtinguish FST negative catalytic reaction
Once the aerosol begins to discharge, a negative catalytic reaction takes place. (1)

X-Tinguish FST stable molecule

The potassium compounds bind with the free radicals (Hydroxyls) that are released during combustion. This creates a new, stable molecule that can not combust. (2)

By creating stable molecules and eliminating the free radicals, the fire is suppressed.


Who uses the FST?
The X-Tinguish® FST is a Fire Suppression Tool and is used by Firefighters, Police, Armed forces and First Responders as a highly effective suppression tool against early stage and fully developed fires. The X-Tinguish® FST is non-pressurized and is deployed manually by pulling a pin which will set off an electronic ignition system.
