Automatic Fire Suppression Systems

Automatic Fire Suppression Systems

BlazeCut automatic fire extinguishing and suppression equipment provides an essential means of protecting assets when no-one is available to extinguish a fire with a portable fire extinguisher or where it is not possible to do so, such as in confined or restricted spaces or where there is a risk of explosion. They also provide an immediate 24/7 fire-fighting response that is designed to extinguish a fire before it can take hold.

Ideal for smaller applications, they are a great way to protect your mission-critical server rack, electrical installation, CNC machine, or the engine compartment on your boat. Engine compartments of vehicles and machines, server rooms, electrical cabinets, power generators and similar devices are closed spaces with increased risk of fire and out of sight. In case of fire such combination may have devastating consequences such as damaging property, interrupting business or, in the worst case scenario, loss of life.

The BlazeCut C-Series product line provides effective fire protection of enclosures. The system operates automatically and independently of any power supply, which is a key advantage, as the system is able to effectively operate and suppress fire during power failure and when people are not present.

The system operation is based on a pneumatic detection tubing technology that is sensitive to high temperatures. Selected ILP Systems include an electric solenoid for electric actuation using smoke and heat detectors for detection and connection to fire control panel with GSM module.

Depending on the type of application the systems are supplied in various modifications such as: Typical vehicle and machine applications: BlazeCut C-Series Typical indoor applications:

DLP & ILP

BlazeCut systems are manufactured in two versions: Direct Low Pressure System and Indirect Low Pressure System. Use of each version is determined by the type and size of the enclosure.

Direct Low Pressure (DLP) System
BlazeCut C-Series
This system is referred to as direct, which means that the activation and distribution of the agent is secured by the detection tube.

The fire suppression system operates by detecting fire and ap­plying the agent using a detection tube fastened to a cylinder valve. The detection tube is placed in the protected enclosure and is under constant pressure. In case of fire the detection tube degrades by the effect of fire or high temperature. When the detection tube is disrupted, the agent is released through created hole. The detection system is independent of any electrical supply and operates solely on physical principles.

The direct system is suitable for smaller applications and combines easy installation with simple operation.

Indirect Low Pressure (ILP) System
BlazeCut C-Series
This system is referred to as indirect, which means that it is activated by disruption of the detection tube and the agent is distributed via separate distribution tubes to the nozzles.

The fire suppression system operates by de­tecting heat with a detection tube connected to a valve of a cylinder. The tube is placed in the protected enclosure and is under con­stant pressure, whereby keeping the valve piston of the cylinder closed.

In case of fire the tube degrades by the effect thereof. The detection tube is disrupted, the pressure in it decreases and the valve piston of the cylinder opens. The fire suppression system activates and the entire extinguishing agent is released through the nozzles. The detection system is independent of any elec­trical supply and operates solely on physical principles.

The indirect system is suitable for larger environments or where specific application of the agent is required. This system also enables various modifications by adding optional components such as manual actuation, detectors, control panels for enhanced operation and control of the system.

Indoor Applications

Operation and business continuity of every company and industry is dependent on its key elements. In addition to the staff it is the company equipment: server rack, CNC machine, electrical cabinet, power generator, kitchen and so forth which are key. Electrical sources, cables and wires in electrical enclosures, chemicals in fume cabinets and machines or oils and fats in kitchens are factors that pose a great risk of fire in these enclosures.

BlazeCut provides automatic fire suppression systems for these kinds of enclosures through its BlazeCut C-Series local application systems. Depending on type of application the systems are supplied with Novec 1230 or HFC-227ea, which are the best choice for protection of elecrical enclosures and sensitive devices or with foam extinguishing agent for kitchen applications.

Typical indoor applications include: BlazeCut systems for indoor applications are supplied in both DLP and ILP version and in various modifications of cylinder sizes, lengths and sizes of detection and distribution tubing. As these systems protect the most critical and sensitive enclosures where even minimum damage can be destructive the BlazeCut systems for indoor applications can be equipped with many optional components such as:

Buses

Engine compartments of buses are more prone to fire than other enclosures due to the following: short circuit, engine wear, hot surfaces, reduced durability of materials, use of plastics, encapsulation of the engine, oil, and debris. It is not surprising that more than 70% of all bus fires occur in the engine compartment. Since buses are used for every day transport of people, the fire protection of buses should be top priority of every bus operator or manufacturer.

BlazeCut provides ILP bus systems that can be adapted and fitted to any type of bus, whether new or old, whether diesel, hybrid or CNG. Depending on the type of the bus or customer requirement the systems are supplied in HFC, powder or foam agent version.

BlazeCut systems for buses are fully automatic, independent of power supply and provide additional electronic activation giving the driver option to activate the system also manually from his seat. The control unit also provides the driver with acoustic and light signalization in case of system activation and monitors the system readiness. Bus systems are specially designed to sustain harsh environments and therefore vibrations, high temperatures and dirt are no longer a worry.

Vehicles and Machines

Mining machines, forestry machines, construction vehicles are exposed to extreme everyday operation conditions. Such conditions multiply the risk of fires in the engine compartments of these vehicles and machines.

BlazeCut C-Series Systems can be installed to protect the engine compartment of any vehicle or machine ranging from standard truck or van to heavy forestry or mining machine. Typical applications include:
BlazeCut ILP systems for the protection of vehicles and machines combine high extinguishing ability with long durability and significant cost-effectiveness in comparison with the competing systems. The systems are supplied in HFC agent, powder agent or foam agent version.

BlazeCut T-Series

BlazeCut T-Series BlazeCut T-Series system is a simple and cost effective fire protection of small enclosures. The system consists of a heat sensitive tube made of special plastic which is closed by a stainless steel fitting on each end. The tube has both storage and detection function which means that the extinguishing agent is stored directly in the tube and no additional storage device like cylinder is needed.

The BlazeCut system uses HFC-227ea or HFC-236fa, which is an extremely effective, clean and people-safe extinguishing medium.

BlazeCut system operates automatically independent of any power supply by detecting higher temperatures. When the temperature in the protected enclosure rises to a critical threshold, the detection tube melts down at the point where the affecting temperature is the highest. Melting the tube creates a hole releasing the entire extinguishing agent stored in the tube onto the source of the fire.

BlazeCut T-Series systems are supplied in various lengths of the tube and volumes of agent. The standard volume of agent ranges from 0,25 kg to 1,0 kg, which is sufficient to protect enclosures with volume between 0,25 m3 and 1,00 m3 respectively.

Electrical Enclosures
BlazeCut T-Series
Small electrical spaces such as electrical cabinets, fuse boxes, audio-video equipment or racks can be found in every household, office or industrial building. Each of these small spaces poses a threat to the surrounding equipment and the building itself due to increased risk of fire.

BlazeCut T-Series systems effectively protect these electrical spaces and stop the fire from spreading outside of the protected enclosure whereby preventing severe damage and losses.

The size of the enclosure is usually the sole limitation of use. Typical application includes but is not limited to: Engine Compartments
BlazeCut T-Series
Vehicle fires are an issue all over the world and the number of such fires increases each year. Majority of vehicle fires have its source in the engine compartment. The most dangerous sources of fires in the engine compartments include electrical arcing, overloaded wiring, hot surfaces, mechanical sparks, electrical sources.

The engine compartments of vehicles are one of the most critical environments due to the increased risk of fire and in terms of extinguishing. Tight space, hot environment, changing temperatures, and air flow have substantial impact on extinguishing and pose a challenge for every fire suppression system.

BlazeCut T-Series systems help protect engine compartments by capturing the staring fire or by suppressing the fire giving the crew time for further action. Easy installation, no maintenance and affordability makes this system a perfect first line fire protection of the engine compartment of small vehicles and pleasure boats.
