5.0 Liter System


The 5.0 liter system is a racing approved system by SCCA, PRO-SCCA, Trans Am, World Speed Challenge, American Le Mans, NASA, and others. This is a 4 nozzle, 3 zone system utilizing the newest T-style nozzle, bulkhead fitting, 20 ft of aluminum tubing and the other features of the 2.3 liter system. This system is available as an owner rechargeable system and as a SFI 17.1 compliant system. The SFI 17.1 compliant system requires that the systems be shipped full, sealed, and certified for 2 years of service. We offer a re-certification program for both 17.1 and non-17.1 systems. Call our offices for more information or request information by writing to services@essfire.com.

This system was created for the hardcore racer. It is designed to provide three zones of coverage – driver, engine, and fuel cell. The aluminum cylinder and hardware keep down the weight and yet the 5 liters of suppression agent provides better coverage than the competition. The 5 liter system will produce approximately 30 liters of foam when activated, enough to subdue the most stubborn fire. In non SFI 17.1 compliant systems, you clean up with water and can recharge the system at the track with a recharge kit (retail under $70) and fresh water. The SFI 17.1 compliant version of the 5.0 liter system requires that the system be shipped back to us for recertification. We offer a re-certification program for both 17.1 and non-17.1 systems. The stainless steel t-bolt mounting brackets allow easy access for tech inspection and storage during the off season.

Contact your sanctioning body if you would like to use this system.
