Fire suppression system(FSS) is the equipment used as a firefighting product, during fire blast. The main purpose of this system is to stop the fire from fire damage, there are different varieties of this system i.e. fire sprinkler system. It is important to conduct the inspection of FSS four times in a year. Unfortunately, from last few years’ this system cerate fuel that is dangerous for environment. In this system, components are available to detects the fire by releasing heat, and smoke.
Following are some components use in system manufacturing:
- Control panel system
- Heat and smoke detection devices
- Storage devices
- Stations for discharge
Gases Used In Fire Suppression System
There are different gases used during the manufacturing of this system as follows:
- Novec 1230 is a popular type of gas used as a clean agent.
- FM200 is also use as a clean agent in which hydrofluorocarbons are used to slow down the fire.
- Inergen is also work as agent.
- Co2 gas plays vital role as an agent to stop the burning of fire.
Types Of Suppression System
- Clean agent : This type of suppression system is very effective. Clean agent fire suppression system includes inert gases and different type of chemicals.
- Kitchen hood : The aims of kitchen hood suppression system mainly use in fire blast occur while cooking, kitchen hood suppression system is made to remove chemical agent which helps to throw out the fires caused by cooking.
- Wet chemical : This system is used to extinguish the fire that occurs mainly used in restaurants. It is in the form of liquid use for the suppressing fire, that liquid chemical cool down the fire immediately. It is most effective chemical substance for against fire blast.
- Dry chemical: It is also useful method to suppress the fire that results from the combustible items and electrical items. In dry chemical suppression system, large quantity of dry chemical powder is utilizing that helps to suppress the fire. Most of the large industries use this system.
This system is mainly use in buildings, to protect the expensive equipment from fire damage. it starts work when smoke or heat is detected by the detectors then system is activated to release the fire.
Fire Suppression Clean Agent
