Gas fire suppression system is famous for its perfect extinguishing performance, it can discharge evenly to every corner of the protected area, IG541, Carbon Dioxide, FM200 is gas system, aerosol system also belongs to gas suppression because its performance is similar to FM200 system, and can total flooding the protected area evenly in enclosed space.
Furthermore, aerosol have unique advantages than conditional gas system CO2, IG541 and FM200, because it can reach any narrow enclosure space for fire protection, and works without any pressure.
So since from the 1990s aerosol becomes more and more popular, till now it is widely used in many industries across the world.
As we know, the generator room, the power room, the switch-gear room, the substation and the museums all are big enclosed space, in which mainly need to design and install fire suppression system of water, foam, carbon dioxide, FM200, IG541 or water mist; But some narrow enclosed space is surely need our condensed aerosol fire prevention system, such as: the vehicle engine, the electrical cabinet, the control panel, the lithium-ion battery pack, the energy storage container, the underground cable tunnel, the ATM machine, the CNC machines, the wind turbine.
Vehicle engine compartment is a important place where many parts are installed there, including vehicle engine.
Truck engine, bus engine, car and race-car engine, heavy duty machine engine, agricultural machinery engine, on-road and off-road vehicle engine are all belongs to a narrow enclosed or semi-enclosed space, many traditional fire extinguishers not be able to apply in this field, but aerosol can help, we have rich experience to instal it many kinds of vehicles and transportation tools, please see below real installation photo:
electrical cabinet and control panel are important part of power distribution equipment, inside the electrical cabinet or control panel there are many electronic components which control the whole power supply or distribution system, as aerosol device is with small size and aerosol suppression agent can reach every corner in the electrical cabinet control panels, so it is an ideal solution for this enclosed space fire protection.
please refer to below installation image:
After long time operation, the lithium-ion battery always getting more and more hot and easy to thermal runaway, then fire is occur in the lithium battery pack, at present it seems none traditional fire suppression system can help to suppress fire in lithium-ion battery, even the fire detecting tube system system also not be able to help.
Until years ago we research and publish out a Lithium-ion Aerosol Fire Extinguisher, the lithium-ion aerosol is in micro size and be able to install inside the narrow space of lithium battery pack.
What? you do not think it is true? please see below real installation photo:
Recently years, with development of science and technology, much electrical energy can be stored by using energy storage container, power supply companies often store electricity in containerized storage equipment, this equipment we call it ” Energy Storage Container”, normally each energy storage container is with size of 20′ or 40′, in the container there are many electrical cabinets, control panels and other power accessories over there.
As we know a 20′ or 40′ container is narrow enclosed space, not be able to install big guys in it like FM200 system, so it is ideal to install aerosol system, as per our calculation, a 20′ energy storage container will require one set of 3000 gram aerosol install inside, and a 40′ one will require one set of 3000 gram aerosol together with one set of 2500 gram aerosol, as per standard aerosol density based on 100 gram per cubic meters.
please see blow installation photo for your reference:
Cable tunnel and cable trench is always a long but narrow space in the location of underground, traditional foam, dry chemical and gas system not be able to reach this area, aerosol can help because it is small enough to install in the narrow space.
Furthermore, the environment of underground is very wet, our aerosol is made by 304 stainless steel as cylinder and sealed with 3M glue, it is moisture proof, water proof and dust proof, we have got IP67 test report for our products, so our product can stay long in wet place.
ATM machines are always in a small room along the street, every bank have ATM machines over there, sometimes the ATM machine is automatic to operate without workers, after 24 hours a day operate, it is easy to get thermal runaway, so install a aerosol device inside the machine will helps a lot.
Each of ATM machines install a 100 grams of aerosol generator will be enough.
Then the money inside the ATM machine will be well protected and avoid being burned by fire.
There are many many manufacturer workshops over the world, and every workshop will have several or hundreds of CNC machines and grinding tools in their workshop, the CNC machines are narrow space, for narrow space fire protection it is better to use a mini aerosol suppression system, both easy to install and operate, and space saving.
In recent years, the new energy industry is developing good and fast, only in China there are tens of thousands of wind farms over there, correspondingly, the requirements of wind power fire protection are becoming more and more strict, people used to use Super-fine ABC dry chemical fire extinguisher in wind turbine, but after install it they find out that after dry chemical discharging, there are much white colour of dry chemical residue left there, so after aerosol published, wind turbine engineering companies became to search for aerosol fire suppression system as their first solution.
Wind turbine nacelle is also narrow space, aerosol system will be the best solution for it and the first choice for fire engineering installation company.
There are many other narrow or micro space that will require aerosol as suppression tool, such as: meter box, kitchen hood etc, in conclusion, any enclosed or semi-enclosed space can be extinguished by aerosol fire suppression system.
