Automatic Fire Suppression System ideal for protecting motor vehicle engine compartments.
The system uses a unique patented linear detection tubing which is installed throughout the engine compartment.
This tubing can not only quickly and accurately detect a fire but also extinguish it before it can damage adjacent components. The tubing is connected to the cylinder valve. The tubing is then charged with nitrogen or compressed air and this pressure is utilised to hold back the extinguishant in the cylinder. Should a high temperature or fire occur then the pressurised tubing will burst and the extinguishant will be deployed directly from the burst hole onto the fire. This effectively means the fire has formed the discharge nozzle so it is always exactly in the right location.
The system does not need complex electronic detectors or panels and operates simply using pneumatics. This alleviates the need for separate power supplies or battery backups and also makes the entire system fail
safe with minimal moving parts.
Using a Direct Low Pressure Powder the system is easy to install and come complete with all the fixings required and fitting instructions.
CE marked and manufactured under an ISO 9001:2008 quality system.
Unit should be fitted upright but must be fitted at no more than a 45degree angle. The tubing will activate at approximately 120 Degrees Centigrade and care should be taken to avoid attaching the tubing in very close proximity to the turbo or exhaust system where temperatures above this are achieved during normal operation. It is recommended that the tube is a minimum of 150mm away from exceptionally hot surfaces or fitted with additional sleeving to avoid false activation.The unit is designed to last for 5 years. The bottle should be shaken up every 6-12 months to keep the material as a powder and stop it from becoming hard with the vibrations of being in a vehicle.
