Experience With Multiple Fire Systems
Planning for fires can be complicated in an industrial environment. Depending on the materials within your environment, what you’re producing, and other considerations, there could be multiple scenarios that each require their own plan for detection and suppression.
At Rotaflow, we have extensive experience with Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Industrial, Agriculture and Pulp & Paper sites, which has given us the expertise to plan for any environment.
Water-based are the most common and least expensive suppression systems. Water is typically released via a deluge and sprinkler system to suppress fires. The challenge with water suppression systems is that they don’t always work in all scenarios and they can result in significant water damage to the space and any valuable electronics.
A combination of two or more inert gasses (nitrogen, argon and CO2) are used to extinguish fires by removing the oxygen content to below 15%, where most materials cannot burn. This eliminates the need for water, and is better for environments where equipment or electronics are present.
These systems are very effective in suppressing fires in large areas where there is a lot of flammable or combustible liquids, like an airport hangar or a warehouse. The “foam” suppresses the fire and vapours, as well as cools and separates the ignition source from the surface to prevent reignition.
