Fire Rover Video – Mastering the Great Outdoors

Outdoor environments are especially challenging for suppression systems.  Wind can throw a water jet off course, resulting in the suppression agent partially or completely missing the fire.  This creates a fundamental weakness that cannot be rectified by technology alone.

Fire Rover overcomes this issue by being manually controlled.  The operator makes the decision on how to control the cannon to ensure the suppression lands where it needs to.

Thermal Imaging – Early Warning Fire Detection

Thermal Imaging allows you to spot a fire risk, long before its even started to emit smoke or flames.

This is an invaluable feature for high risk industries, such as bulk storage of flammable materials such as coal or biomass, and the waste recycling industry where self-heating and spontaneous combustion is a ever-present danger.

Through proactive monitoring of the temperature of your material stockpiles, thermal imaging will allow you to identify excessive temperature hotspots, or a sudden rate of risk in temperature which could indicate a potential fire risk.  This allows you to take the necessary action to deal with the emerging risk before it develops into a fire.

Clever algorithms and technology built into the software will allow it to identify between hotspots caused by operational activity (such as plant machinery with hot exhaust manifolds) and the hotspots caused by a genuine fire hazard.

That’s not the only application for our thermal imaging camera range either.  Our sophisticated solution can be used for process control monitoring on cement kilns, steel production and other quality control applications.

If your thermal imaging system detects a fire, it can raise multiple levels of pre-alarm, and raise the risk alarm or activate a fire suppression or water cannon system to engage the identified risk immediately.

Aerosol Fire Suppression Video

Aerosol fire suppression is a unique airborne suppression agent, which transforms from a solid compound into an airborne extinguishing agent with extinguishing properties which are almost identical to a gaseous suppression system.

The chemical reaction transforms the aerosol compound into millions of tiny aerosol extinguishing particles of just 1-2 microns in size (a human hair is typically 40-60 microns wide).  These tiny particles remain in suspension in the air, and fuse onto the flammable fire molecules (free radicals) – meaning they cannot burn.  This breaks the feedback loop of fire, by preventing the flames from occurring.

Additionally, the enormous surface area which is created by so many tiny aerosol extinguishing particles helps to absorb the heat of the fire, providing a secondary fire fighting action by helping to prevent flashover.

Aerosol extinguishing agent is emitted from the Aerosol Generator in the form of a white vapour.  This can leave a fine dusty residue after discharge, which should be blown away.  Tests have shown that this is non-corrosive, but nevertheless it is a side effect which should be considered when you are looking for a suppression agent for server areas and clean rooms.

One of the biggest benefits of Aerosol Fire Suppression is that it doesn’t require an air-tight space to operate (unlike gaseous extinguishing agents) and that it doesn’t use any stored pressure to discharge.  It is not harmful to humans, but should not be discharged into an occupied area as it could obscure visibility and hinder finding the escape routes.

Process Machinery Fire Suppression

This video show a water mist fire suppression system installed on a shredder at a waste recycling facility.  In the event of a fire, the system will activate within milliseconds to extinguish the risk and ensure that the fire isn’t carried into the high-value MRF area.

Automatic fire suppression on high risk waste recycling processes and extract systems, can protect your facility from a devastating fire and the downtime and high insurance premiums that inevitably result from a fire incident.
