As a consequence of the banning of halon gases (such as Halon 1301) for being greenhouse gases as well as participating in the depletion of the ozone layer, a new generation of agents, eco-friendlier, have been developed maintaining the excellent fire suppression properties of Halon without the environmental problems.
- High weight efficiency, minimal number of agent cylinders.
- Environmentally acceptable and in line with the Montreal and Kyoto Protocol requirements by having 0 ODP and low greenhouse effect potential.
- Safe for humans, since they are non-toxic.
- No residues upon discharge.
Fire suppression mechanism
With only 10s of discharge, the agents are removing sufficient heat from the fire and interrupting the combustion chain reaction, extinguishing it completely.
Methods of application
Chemical agents must be discharged in adequately sealed rooms to ensure reaching the necessary extinguishing concentrations determined by the International Standards. Therefore, these agents can only be applied in total flooding applications.
Ideally used in situations where water from fire sprinkler would damage expensive equipment or where water-based fire protection is impractical, such as museums, banks, clean rooms, IT rooms and hospitals.
|Maintenance at its safest||all components may be assembled and disassembled whilst under pressure, this includes: pressure gauge, pneumatic release, manual release and solenoid valve.|
|Discharge-free commissioning system||· whilst performing system functional testing during commissioning, the release circuit can be disconnected from the valves avoiding any accidental discharge and allow easy testing.|
|Standing strong and secure||stand alone or wall mounted brackets with several configurations available, adapting the system to the room space.|
|Flexible and resistant||all release and discharge hoses take into account the best balance between flexibility and durability, allowing easy installation and strength to withstand the pass of time.|
|Differential pressure actuation||allows using the same pressure from the cylinder to maintain the valve closed, reducing dramatically leakage problems even with high temperature fluctuations.|
These are the cases where the hazards needed to be protected are enclosed in small volumes/ voids, making the use of normal fixed fire suppression systems complicated and inadequate.
For this reason, we had decided to develop a specific system for these particular applications guaranteeing ease of design, installation and maintenance and, of course, appropriate extinguishing capabilities.
|Pre-engineered||you will receive all the necessary material for installation as a ready to assemble kit.|
|Maintenance and installation||you will receive the starter kit tool box with all necessary tools for the adequate system installation and maintenance.|
|Promotion||· As we support the promotion of these systems, by providing demo kits as well as assisting in the designing of small showrooms to carry out real tests.
|Tube Discharge Systems||The sensor tube acts as detection and fire suppression, self-activating the system.|
|Nozzle discharge systems||· the sensor tube acts as detection and once it has burst, the extinguishing agent is discharged through a separate pipe and nozzles.|
These systems have the advantage to attack the fire by total flooding discharge but acting directly at the fire source. Most common applications are electrical cabinets, telecommunication racks, control panels, CNC machines to name a few.
