Fire Suppression Systems

Fire Suppression Systems

Fire suppression systems comply with the NFPA96, NFPA17A and UL300 standards. FM-200: the best people compatible clean fire protection agent. FM200 (HFC 227ea) is chemically known as heptafluoropropane and is manufactured by Great Lakes Chemical Corporation.
FM200 is a colorless gas that is liquefied under storage pressure. Like Halon 1301, it has a low level of toxicity and is super pressurised with 24.8bar Nitrogen (360psi). It quickly extinguishes fires most commonly found
through a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms.


Environmental Features:

FM200 does not contain bromine or chlorine and therefore has zero Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP). The atmospheric life of FM200 is between 31 and 42 years which together with its zero OD provides a long term solution to fire protection requirements.

Safety:

FM200 was found to be less toxic than Halon 1301, making it safe for use in fully automatic mode in occupied areas. Typically, FM200 requires a 7 percent design concentration, which is well below the 9 percent No Observable Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) for cardiac sensitisation. The NOAEL for Halon 1301 is only 5% (the same as its design concentration).

Applications:

FM200 is immediately available to protect most of the hazards traditionally protected by Halon 1301. It is effective in protecting data processing, telecommunications and electronic equipment, as well as most flammable liquids and gases.

Replacing Halon with FM200:

Existing halon and CO2 control systems complying with the requirements of the relevant national or international standards are ideally suited for use with FM200 and can be modified to operate as part of the FM200 system. Due to the differences in concentration and physical characteristics between the gasses it will be necessary to modify the container valve and the nozzles, and probably the pipework and storage containers, in order to upgrade the existing system. However, due to similarities in the equipment, a change from Halon or CO2 to FM200 can be achieved with minimal disruption and little or no system downtime.

We use state-of-the-art gas extinguishing systems for valuable goods and
equipment, computer systems, and rooms with electrical or cable installations


Suffocating a fire:

The extinguishing effect is achieved by displacing oxygen from the fire seat, which causes it to suffocate. The thermal binding capability of the gasses also plays its part. When used as an extinguishing agent, there are virtually no emission limits for argon. It's heavier than air, making
it the ideal medium to extinguisher.
Carbon dioxide ( CO2) is a well-established extinguishing gas for the protection of equipment and rooms.
Applications:
Telecommunications control centers
Switchgear and control systems
Storage facilities for hazardous materials
Museums and archives


Laboratories and plant rooms Design and operation of a CO2 and argon gas exhaust system
The depressurised pipe network and the open extinguishing nozzles
cover all areas of the building that need protection.
The extinguishing agent is conveyed through this network to the extinguishing cylinders
under high pressure and distributed evenly in the area to be protected.


Before the agent is released, the alarm is
activated so that the area can be evacuated.
At the same time, doors and other openings may
be closed and technical facilities may be operated as necessary.
The activation of additional local alarm systems sends a
message to a permanently manned unit (usually a fire brigade).



Replacing the CO2 cylinders after the fire has been brought under control means that the
system will soon be operational again. High and cost-effective availability of natural gas (carbon dioxide)

Kitchen Fire Suppression SystemsIntroduction

Kitchen Fire Suppression SystemsIntroduction


The risk of fire hazard proves to be very dangerous in modern commercial kitchens. Fire in the kitchen is usually caused by burning oil. However, oil & fats burn at relatively high temperatures and therefore, once they catch fire, it is very difficult to extinguish them.

Open flames, red hot cooking surfaces and a heavily greased environment help the kitchen to spread quickly and have proven to be very difficult to extinguish.
In order to protect modern kitchens from such risks, we have developed SYNERGY KITCHEN FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM.
The system is developed in accordance with the NFPA & UL standards. It can be widely used in the kitchens of hotels, institutes, restaurants , schools, etc.

System Design:

The Kitchen Fire Suppression System is designed to provide fire protection in hoods and kitchen appliances for restaurants. The basic system consists of a wet agent tank enclosed in a cylinder mounting box, temperature sensors, heat sensing cable, control panel, nozzles, pipes, and a water storage tank (optional), etc.

The system provides automatic operation with the option to be manually operated via a remote manual pull station. The system is also capable of shutting down other devices on system operation, if necessary.

Additional equipment such as remote manual pull station, mechanical and electrical gas valves, pressure switches, electrical switches and accessories such as alarms, warning lights, etc. may be integrated into the system. As the fire is detected, the Control Panel activates the wet agent tank and the wet agent is discharged to extinguish the fire.Single and Multi Wet Agent tank systems are available.

System Operation:


The SKFS system suppresses fire by spraying the SYNERGY Low pH Liquid Fire Suppressant onto the plenum area, the filters, the cooking surfaces and the exhaust duct system with a predetermined flow rate. When the liquid agent is discharged into the cooking appliance fire, it cools the grease surface and reacts with the hot grease (saponification) forming a layer of soap-like foam on the surface of the fat.


This layer acts as an insulation between the hot grease and the atmosphere, thus helping to prevent the escape of fuel vapors.
The system is designed as a hybrid system (agent and water). The agent is discharged to the hazard area upon actuation.

Immediately after discharge, the waterline system is activated and allows water to flow to the same hazardous areas, continuously refurbishing the foam blanket and cooling the hot appliance to prevent regeneration.
