Protect Assets and Lives
If you only have a total flood suppression system you need to consider a secondary system that can isolate a fire and possibly save you valuable downtime and repair to your assets. By addressing the danger at a micro level before your larger system kicks in you are still protecting your assets, personnel, and mechanical, but more efficiently in relation to your total operation.
We can provide a self-activating suppression system that reliably suppresses fires in seconds. We can design a low maintenance, cost-effective solution to the problem of “micro-environment” fire protection. This system uses polymer tubing that will rupture when exposed to a flame. This specialized detection tubing combines leak resistance, flexibility, durability and precise temperature sensitivity, allowing it to react quickly when the heat from a fire is present.
Direct Release – Low Pressure Systems
The Direct Low Pressure (DLP) System utilizes the Firetrace Detection Tubing as both the fire detection device and the fire suppressant delivery system. The portion of the tube nearest the hottest point of the fire ruptures forming an effective discharge “nozzle”. The pressure drop in the tube releases the entire contents of the cylinder through this nozzle.
Indirect Release – Low Pressure Systems
With the Indirect Low Pressure (ILP) System, the Firetrace Detection Tubing is used only as a detection device. The fire suppression agent is delivered via copper tubing, stainless steel tubing or braided hose. Once the tube “bursts”, the suppressant is discharged through strategically placed nozzles within the protected enclosure.
