Detergent Activators are specially formulated to slide into the Proportioning System and deliver a surfactant solution through the StormStick Decon Delivery System. Activators are 100% biodegradable, environmentally safe, phosphate free, bleach free and meets NFPA 1851 standards.
Each Activator will proportion a solution for about 12-14 minutes. One activator should easily rinse a full structure fire assignment (15-20+ members). They come wrapped in a food grade PVA sleeve that immediately dissolves on contact with water. Additionally, they can be left in the proportioner after use. The proportioners do not need to be cleaned or rinsed as the activators are a specially designed, highly concentrated surfactant (detergent). They will self-clean as the water pushes through the system. They have a shelf life of over 5 years so no need to worry about them going bad.
