Then in the late 1980’s early 1990’s, the Russian Academy of Sciences identified that a new and improved portable fire suppression system, needed to be specifically developed for use on their Soyuz space capsules (and in a more general sense)……in all spacecraft and orbital environments such as space stations. They identified several shortcomings associated with “traditional” fire extinguishers. Some of these shortcomings included; carrying pressurized fire extinguisher tanks into space, the bulk (size) associated with larger volume fire extinguishers, “traditional” fire extinguishers require periodic maintenance to remain functional, A, B, C and E rated fire extinguishers can damage sensitive electronic equipment and cause health risks for the human occupants on board these space craft….. and the simple fact that attempting to operate a large, bulky, pressurized fire extinguisher in zero gravity requires an almost herculean effort to control/ aim! For these reasons, a new “state of the art,” technology was identified as needed to fight fires in the rigorous environment of space.
That is how the Extinguish Stick was born! Engineers located at our “State of the Art,” manufacturing facility in Italy overcame the few challenges need to make this technology portable as well as the need to use an electronic triggering device. What they developed was the most advanced portable fire suppression device in the world today! The Extinguish Stick is so light and portable it can easily be carried and used by anyone…..no matter what their physical limitations. As long as they have full use of both hands and are mobile, they should be able to use the Extinguish Stick. Since the Extinguish Stick is not pressurized, no maintenance is required to keep it in working order. The Extinguish Stick will be ready when you need it most! The Extinguish Stick will not harm the environment nor does it leave a residual coating or “dusting,” once activated to suppress a fire. This means minimal cleanup or inadvertent damage to sensitive electronic equipment.
A portable, light, easy to use, A, B, C & E Rated Fire Suppression Capability, zero maintenance, non-pressurized, environmentally friendly, one-time-use fire suppression device, ……that will always be ready to use when you need it most! We even provide a 5 Year Warranty on the unit! THAT is the Extinguish Stick!
The Extinguish Stick somewhat resembles a slightly larger more robust standard “road flare,” in appearance. It has a handle and a covering cap over the top of the unit. The handle is blue and the cap is red. The handle has a molded grip surface and when the cap covering the top of the device is pulled free, it is then inserted into the bottom of the handle…….creating a longer overall length for the unit. Simply point the device in a safe direction, pull the yellow safety pin out of the top of the Extinguish Stick and the device will automatically activate!
Basically, a very simple chemical reaction takes place once the triggering pin is removed from the Extinguish Stick. Potassium Nitrate when blended with other components forms a compound. This patented chemical formulation can be precisely controlled to create chemical reactions for a specific period of time. A “jet” of gas is emitted out of the end of the Extinguish Stick with some force due to this reaction. It is this “jet” of visible gas that will suppress or extinguish a fire. Depending on which device you are deploying, the unit will last approximately fifty (50) seconds or approximately one hundred (100) seconds. In the near future, Extinguish Stick will offer other units which function for other lengths of time.
Because the chemical reaction created in the Extinguish Stick is so efficient, the user will find that the Extinguish Stick works very quickly to suppress fires it is used on. This is because the Potassium Nitrate compound (formulation) used in the Extinguish Stick creates a visible gas that is a voracious consumer of oxygen. Hence, the fire is “starved” of fuel and effectively is “snuffed” out. Also, since it is a aerosol “gas” containing no solid particulate material………no “dust” or residue contaminates the general area the Extinguish Stick was deployed in. It is partly this same reason that the product is considered eco-friendly.
Once the Extinguish Stick has been deployed and the fire suppressed or extinguished, it is recommended that the user simply continue to “apply” the emitted gas to the source of the fire for several more seconds. This will help to insure no “re-flash” or re-ignition of the fire will occur. This is basically the same recommendations provided when a “traditional” fire extinguisher is used as well. Once it is confirmed that the threat of “re-ignition is no longer a concern, simply take the Extinguish Stick outdoors and allow it to complete its “timed” cycle until it depletes it’s emission capacity. If taking it outdoors is not practical, simply submerge the end of the device in a bucket or vessel of water. Once the end of the Extinguish Stick has “cooled,” simply dispose of it in your normal trash. Again, it does not need to be disposed of in any special manner because it is an eco-friendly device.

B = these are fires whose fuels is flammable or combustible liquid or gas.
C/E = electrical fires
How does the Extinguish Stick fire fighting capacity compare with more traditional or standard fire extinguishers?
Monoammonium Phosphate, which is corrosive and damages computers and electronic
equipment…….and may not be evident for several months, Extinguish Stick does not
use this chemical agent in its formulation.
What are the main advantages of this type of device over more traditional types of fire suppression devices?
to remain ready for deployment. It is much smaller and lighter so it is far more likely to be stored close to where it will be needed. It can be deployed with literally one hand after activation……allowing the other hand to remain free for use. It functions across a wide spectrum of fires classes. It will not harm electronic equipment or damage/contaminate surfaces where deployed with “dust” or residue. It will not harm the environment and can be disposed of like normal trash once used.
