Dry Chemical Piped
The Dry Chemical Piped Fire Suppression Systems offer full-time fire protection in areas at risk for potentially disastrous fires. The top-of-the-line fast knockdown technology suppresses the most expansive, ignitable liquid and gas fires where water and foam suppressants are not a viable option. They also provide a means of discovery and suppression of complex hazards that are too challenging for manual firefighting.
Typical applications for Dry Chemical Piped Fire Suppression Systems include:
- Petroleum and petrochemical landing racks
- Refinery processing
- Product transportation and storage areas
- Petrochemical loading racks
- Marine tankers
- Machinery spaces
- Loading docks
- Spraypaint booths
- Hazardous and flammable storage facilities
- And more!
Large fixed nozzle piped systems can offer up to 3,000 pounds of dry chemical extinguishing for expansive industrial applications.
Foam (AFFF & AR-AFFF)
Foam Fire Suppression Systems separate the fuel from the oxygen to extinguish a fire. The system cools down the fire and coats the fuel that the fire is consuming, which will prevent contact with oxygen and reduce the risk of combustion.
Foam Fire Suppression Systems work to protect Class B fires, including hydrocarbon fires and polar solvents fires. An array of foams are used in this system, including low-expansion foam. The most common applications it’s used for include refinery processing equipment, offshore platforms, bulk fuel storage tanks, petrochemical loading racks, and more.
If you work in an environment where fires can cause major loss of capital equipment and put employees at risk, flame detectors are necessary solutions. A variety of commercial and industrial applications benefit significantly from flame detection, including:
- Oil and gas pipelines
- Tank farms
- Off-shore platforms
- Petrochemical loading racks
- Aircraft hangers
- Power plants
- Nuclear facilities
- And more
These systems use devices that respond to radiant energy visible to the human eye (approximately 4000 to 7000 angstroms) or radiant energy outside the range of human vision, usually infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV), or both. Flame detectors are sensitive to glowing embers, coals, or actual flames with the energy of sufficient intensity and spectral quality to initiate the sensor.
When a local municipal water system can’t provide adequate water pressure to meet the hydraulic requirements of a fire sprinkler system, fire pumps are a fantastic solution. Fire pumps are helpful for systems requiring high terminal pressure and large volumes of water, like foam deluge systems at petrochemical loading racksterminal truck loading racks or tank farms bulk fuel storage tanks with foam suppression systems in place.
