THE FIREDETEC® DIFERENCE
FireDETEC® systems use a proprietary continuous linear sensor tube that reliably detects and actuates release of the extinguishing agent using pneumatic technology. It is more flexible, space efficient and cost effective detection method .
1. Quick & Easy Installation:
The flexible sensor tubing is easily installed directly above and around the engine – closer to where a fire could start. When in service, the tubing is pressurized with Nitrogen to 16 bar. The dynamics of pressurization make the tubing more reactive to heat.
2. Early Fire Detection:
If a fire occurs, the heat of the fire causes the pressurized sensor tube to burst at the hottest spot (approx. 170°C).
3. Instant Suppression:
The sudden tube depressurization actuates the special pressure differential valve and instantly floods the entire engine compartment with FireDETEC® TS55ea extinguishing agent. The fire is quickly suppressed just mom ents after it began minimizing damage and downtime.
