The common type of fire fighting system used in most of the buildings is automatic wet pipe sprinkler systems. In case of fire, the alarm valves act as check valves and also give an alarm. The alarm is usually through the water-going audible alarm bell or through the signal from a pressure or flow switch.
Pre-action alarm systems have two signals in order to start water flow through a sprinkler system. It is especially of great use in any case of a false alarm or a mechanical failure. This is recommended in areas where sprinklers are necessary only in case of an actual fire, so there is no water damage to any expensive instruments in the building, due to inadvertent opening of sprinklers.
A deluge water spray system is commonly used in protecting places with steam gas and turbo generators operating at high temperature and speed containing a large quantity of lubricating oil that involves a major risk of fire. For protecting any fixed hazards such as transformers, circuit breakers, diesel engines and diesel storage tanks, turbo alternators, lube oil systems, oil filled boilers; high-velocity water nozzle spray is used. Fire detection and medium velocity water spray systems are used in coal conveyor systems.
The danger of Fire is critical in areas of manufacturing like paint booths, flammable liquid and paint storage areas, packing areas comprising of corrugated boxes, woods, boiler/ switchgear/ generator rooms, exhaust ducts, quench tanks, etc. In such places, fire detection and medium velocity water spray systems are used. Foam-water sprinkler systems are also commonly used in flammable liquid storage and handling areas. Custom engineered foam systems are used in special hazard areas.
The fire characteristics in a metro tunnel are uniquely different from those in buildings. The main fire load in a metro tunnel is the train itself and there is a likelihood for the fire to spread along the cabin cars due to the effects of fire in the confined space. Unlike building fires, a train fire may still be in motion within a tunnel and the air in the tunnel may also be flowing due to the operation of the mechanical ventilation system. The consideration of fire safety in rail and in tramps has been increasing over recent years at a rapid rate. There are many steps of the requirement for fire protection that must be followed by metro rail operators. All systems including passenger compartments, electrical systems, and switch cabinets pose lots of considerations for fire protection systems while installations. With rail tunnel development booming worldwide, fire protection and safety measures have come into force once again. With key technologies such as reaction-to-fire properties of rolling stock, fixed Gas suppression systems, improved fire detection systems including video-based automatic incident detection systems, and the automatic deployment of pre-set emergency plans, the industry tries to minimize the danger of tunnel fires.
Keeping into account the potential danger in terms of loss of lives and damage to cargo, fire hazards could be serious and crucial in vessels. We have a range of cast bronze monitors and aluminum bronze nozzles to nickel aluminum bronze deluge valves. They are robust, rugged, and very dependable types of fire-fighting products that are suitable for the marine type of environment.
Deluge water spray system for cooling of storage tanks, bullets, spheres, structures, and flammable liquid storage areas. Fixed foam system for open-top floating and fixed roof flammable liquid storage tanks. Foam bladder tank systems provide accurate, dependable, and cost-effective foam fire protection for a variety of flammable/combustible hazard areas, with no external power other than water pressure. Water is applied to the outside surface of the bladder, displacing foam the concentrate inside the bladder, which then is injected into the water stream. Foam-water sprinkler system for Generator room, Air craft Hangers, and flammable liquid storage and handling areas. Custom engineered foam systems are ideal for foam proportioning applications for a range of foam discharges. The different range of Water/Foam monitors are used in petrochemical storage and refineries.
In addition to the design and manufacture of standard fire-fighting products, we can also provide customized and bespoke engineered systems to meet individual customer needs or applications for special projects. Special units and skids are made on demand according to your specifications. Our technical service and engineering teams can assist you with special project requirements for various fire-protection and related applications from initial conceptual design to commissioning and on-site assistance.
Foam–water sprinkler systems are commonly used in high and medium-risk areas in ports and docks like fertilizers, biomass, wooden boxes, chemicals, flammable liquids areas, etc. There are even other various portable foam discharge devices like mobile foam units, trailer mounted monitors are used in terminals
Hangers – where aircraft are kept, are areas of potential risks keeping in mind the significant quantity of flammable liquid, etc. are present. Foam-water deluge systems, with supplementary protection like low-expansion foam discharge systems using water-powered oscillating monitors, are used in such places. Another option is a combination of automatic sprinkler protection and an automatic low-expansion foam system.
Iron and steel furnaces and heating chambers involve many fire hazards. The fixed water and foam fire protection system is able to quickly extinguish or suppress the fire and protect the surroundings until relevant personnel has full control of the situation.
