GENERATORS:

Areas within industrial buildings such as machinery spaces and generator enclosures require a high level of protection from the risk of fire.

These areas are high risk due to the high levels of oils and residues that build up from the manufacturing process. A minor malfunction or leak in machinery spaces can quickly turn into a serious incident so it is important to have an effective fire suppression system.

These spaces are becoming larger as the plant and machinery spaces increase to accommodate larger machines.

High pressure water mist is very effective at suppressing fires in these applications and the technology works very well at reducing the heat generated from this type of risk.

High pressure water mist is very effective at suppressing fires in these applications and the technology works very well at reducing the heat generated from this type of risk. Installation is available with both a pump or cylinder system depending on the size and scale of the protection required.

High pressure water mist is the preferred method for fire suppression of these risks as atomising the water into a fine mist the droplets quickly convert to steam and absorb the heat energy, quickly suppressing and controlling the fire. In this way almost 100% of the water is used to effectively fight the fire. Once the fire has been suppressed the droplets being discharged continue the effect by removing heat from the fuel source (i.e. Liquid Fuel, Oil, Plastics, Fabrics, Wood, Cable and Paper etc.) preventing re-ignition.

Additionally this leads to a localised reduction in oxygen from the flame front, which creates a local inert atmosphere as it starves the combusting fuel of Oxygen.

Important note: This only affects the fire at the flame base and does not reduce oxygen levels elsewhere within the risk area.

Once the fire has been extinguished the droplets of water mist being discharged continue the cooling effect by removing heat from the fuel source (i.e. Liquid Fuel, Oil, Plastics, Fabrics, Wood, Cable and Paper etc.) preventing re-ignition.

By utilising these methods the systems use minimal amounts of water, reducing storage or water supply requirements, and are able to control the fire rapidly.
