Introduction to Encapsulator Agents

  • Sharonville Fire Department #86 11637 Chester Rd Cincinnati, OH 45246 (map)

The Tri-State SFPE is pleased to present our next presentation for the 2019 calendar year, “Introduction to Encapsulator Agents”. This presentation will be given by Ron Lowrey with Hazard Control Technologies, Inc.

This presentation will cover the topic of encapsulating agent additives to fire suppression water systems. This is a relatively new technology, and can provide advantages over typical water or foam systems when fighting 3-D fuel fires, Class D metals, lithium ion batteries, and rack storage fires. This technology is regulated by NFPA 18A, which will be reviewed during the presentation. Encapsulating agents work on three aspects of the fire tetrahedron; cooling, fuel encapsulating, and the interruption of free radical coalescence.

Ron Lowrey has over 30 years in the fire service. He is the Assistant Chief of the Mt Oliver Fire Department in Allegheny County PA. He is a Pro Board and IFSAC certified Fire Fighter and Fire Instructor. Ron is the North American Eastern Area Manager, and an Encapsulating Agent Technology Specialist for Hazard Control Technologies, Inc. the world leader in Encapsulating Agent’s.
