Need MR Conditional Fire Extinguishers for locations near the MRI Suite?
The Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers, Models OVAL-10HABC and OVAL-10JABC, are MR Conditional.
Testing demonstrated that each product can be used in the MRI environment according to the following condition:
- Static magnetic field of 3-Tesla or less
IMPORTANT NOTE: This fire extinguisher product is intended for use inside of the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) environment (e.g., in the MR system room). However, it is not intended for use directly inside of the MR system (e.g., inside of the bore of the scanner), during the operation of the scanner (i.e., during an MRI procedure). As such, the assessment of MRI issues for this product entailed an assessment of translational attraction in relation to exposure to a 3-Tesla MR system, only.
Be sure to specify the “MR Conditional” option when ordering. The front of the fire extinguisher will be labeled accordingly prior to shipment.
