Fire Suppression

Fire Suppression Systems or Automatic Fire Suppression Systems control and extinguish fires in buildings without human intervention. Automatic Fire Suppression Systems fall into two categories engineered and pre-engineered systems. Fire Suppression Systems can use a variety of extinguishing agents depending on the assets it is designed to protect.

  Fire Suppression

These use a combination of dry chemicals and/or wet agents to suppress fires. Suppression systems have become a necessity to industries. These include Extinguishers, Sprinklers, Hydrant Systems, Flame detectors, Novec 1230, FM-200, FE-13, Clean Agent, Argonite etc.

Dry Chemical Powder Fire Suppression Systems are fire suppression systems using dry chemical powder to extinguish a fire. When introduced directly to a fire, dry chemical powder extinguishes flames almost immediately. Dry chemical powder is intended for use in extinguishing fires involving bulk chemical agents and liquefied gases.

Foam suppression systems are fire suppression systems using foam to extinguish fires. Foam fire suppression systems are used to form a coherent floating blanket on flammable and combustible liquids to prevent or extinguish fires by excluding air and cooling the fuel. It also prevents re-ignition by suppressing the formation of flammable vapours.

Gaseous fire suppression systems are gas suppression systems using chemical agents to extinguish a fire. Gaseous fire suppression systems are waterless, deploy quickly and most importantly cleanly without leaving water, particulate or oily residue on high value or irreplaceable assets. As many fire suppression systems can cause major damage to – and even destroy – the very things they are supposed to protect.

FM-200 is a clean agent fire suppression system that protects high-value assets from fire and the effects of fire-fighting, allowing normal operations to be resumed quickly with no collateral damage and clean-up costs.

Carbon Dioxide/C02 suppression Systems are Clean, dependable, versatile. Although carbon dioxide fire protection is not a new concept; its unique fire fighting benefits have enable it to not only survive, but steadily evolve over the years.

Although carbon dioxide fire protection is not a new concept; its unique fire fighting benefits have enable it to not only survive, but steadily evolve over the years. Unlike the systems first developed in the early 1900's, today's carbon dioxide systems are equipped with sophisticated detectors, high-tech control panels, and computer designed agent distribution networks.

Carbon Dioxide Systems are still the best fire protection solution for many applications. They provide automatic or manual protection for hazards where Class A (combustible materials capable of producing deep-seated fires), Class B (flammable liquids and gases) and Class C (energized electrical equipment) fires could occur. They can be found in today's industrial plants, commercial facilities, and even aboard ship.

Fire sprinkler systems are an active fire protection system designed to protect buildings from the outbreak of fires by sprinkling water over them. The fire sprinkler systems consists of a water supply systems, connected to a distribution piping system that are in turn fitted with fire sprinklers that discharges water as a fine spray at the scene of a fire.

A Water Mist System is a fixed fire protection system that discharges a fine spray of small water droplets. The water droplets discharged from a water mist system remove heat and displace oxygen from the fire resulting in fire suppression.

Industrial Suppression Systems

Industrial fire protection equipment covers the fire protection products needed to protect against high risk and hazardous industries such as petrochemical, offshore oil and gas industries as well as power stations and airports.

Industrial fire protection products covers heavy duty fire nozzles and monitors, rim seal floating roof tank fire protection systems and industrial fire suppression systems.

Industrial Fire Monitors are devices used to deliver large water flows for fire fighting purposes in high risk or hazardous industries. Most industrial monitors can be controlled manually or automatically by means of a remote control station.

Storage Tank Fires and Roof Tank Fires are high risk threats for industrial facilities like petrochemical and chemical storage plants. Rim Seal Fire Protection systems prevent a rim seal fire outbreak from the very early stages of its development. Rim Seal and Floating Roof Tank fire protection systems help protect against these high risk fires.

Restaurant Suppression Systems

Restaurant Fire Safety products which help to ensure better fire protection in the home, especially in the kitchen where most house fires start. Stove and oven alarms which trigger when they detect too much heat from a cooker are just one example of reducing the risk of fire. Residential fire safety, specializes in protecting our homes from the hazards of fire with products to warn us, whilst others help prevent fires spreading.

Kitchen Fire Safety is the most important in any household, most house fires start in the kitchen, normally because of misuse of or faulty cooking equipment.

Fire Suppression

Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishing System
Dry Chemical is a powder composed of very small particles usually of sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, urea-based potassium bicarbonate, or monoammonium phosphate with added particulate material supplemented by special treatment to provide resistance to packing, resistance to moisture absorption (caking) and the proper flow capabilities.

  Fire Suppression

Total Flooding System

A total flooding system means a supply of dry chemical permanently connected to fixed piping, with fixed nozzles arranged to discharge dry chemical into an enclosed space or enclosure about the hazard. This type of system shall be used only where there is a permanent enclosure about the hazard that is adequate to enable the required concentration to be built up.

The leakage of dry chemical from the protected space shall be minimized since the effectiveness of the flooding system depends upon obtaining an extinguishing concentration of dry chemical. In total flooding system, the rate of application shall be such that the design concentration in all parts of the enclosure shall be obtained within 30 seconds.

Local Application System

Local application system shall be used for the extinguishment of fires in flammable or combustible liquids, gases, and shallow solids such as paint deposits, where the hazard is not enclosed or where the enclosure does not conform to the requirements for total flooding. Application of dry chemical shall be from nozzles mounted on the tank side or overhead.

Area Method: Applicable to superficial fire and the amount of extinguishing agent depends upon the hazardous area.

Volume Method: Applicable to cubical fire and the amount of extinguishing agent depends upon the volume of the object in danger.

The hazard shall include all areas that are or may become coated by combustible or flammable liquids or shallow solid coatings, such as areas subject to spillage, leakage, dripping, splashing, or condensation, and all associated materials or equipment such as freshly coated stock, drainboards, hoods, ducts, etc., that might extend fire outside or lead fire into the protected area.

FM-200 System (Gaseous fire suppression)

The FM-200 fire extinguishing unit uses FM-200, a new, environment-friendly gas. This compact unit provides all functions, from fire detection and alerting through to extinguishing. Reliable and safe, with simple installation and maintenance, this unit can be used for a wide range of spaces.

Choose from the basic all-in-one A model, or the expanded B model which can be used according to the space available.

The A model is the basic model: an all-in-one unit including extinguishing agent container, starter, alarm, and controller. The B model is a separate type unit, installed in combination with the A model, and can be adapted according to the size and shape of the installation space.


  • Safe and environmentally sound: FM-200, the new gas used in this unit, contains no ozone-destroying substances. Also, with a density of between 7.7 and 9%, there is no danger of oxygen deficiency when extinguishing fires.
  • Quick fire extinguishing, limited damage to equipment: FM-200 is released a mere 10 seconds after the detection of fire, meaning that damage to equipment is kept to a minimum. Also, because FM-200 is non-conductive, the effect on computers and other electronic equipment is minimal.
  • Effective use of limited space: All the necessary functions in a compact unit. Freely and easily installed, the FM-200 suits any room, regardless of size and shape.
  • Double check system: Sensors detect any double combination of either smoke, heat, or flame, thus preventing false operation.
  • Power protection: The FM-200 runs on AC power in normal circumstances, but in the event of a power cut, automatically converts to the emergency power supply.
  • Easy inspection: Daily inspection of the FM-200 is extremely simple.

Foam Fire Extinguishing System

Foam Fire Extinguishing System is divided broadly into two categories according to the chemical involved, namely Air Foam Fire Extinguishing System and Chemical Foam Fire Extinguishing system. Chemical Foam Fire Extinguishing System is considered obsolete and has generally been replaced by Air Foam Fire Extinguishing System. Being intended primarily for Flammable Liquids, Air Foam Fire Extinguishing System is installed at agencies, producers and storage site of explosives and combustibles. The system comprises Water Source, Fire Pump, Air Foam Concentrate, Proportioner, Foam Maker, Foam Discharge Outlet Control Panel, Pipe, Electric Wire etc.

A variety of Foam Discharge Outlet is provided to meet any shape of Hazard, conditions of location, etc. The system is divided into the following types.

  • Air Foam Chamber
  • Air Foam Nozzle
  • Air Foam Spray Head
  • Subsurface Foam Injection
  • Air Foam-Water Monitor Nozzle
  • High Expansion Foam Generators

Air Foam Concentrate is made into a fixed ratio of Air Foam Solution by mixing with water flowing through Feed Pipe and is mechanically stirred by Foam Maker which sucks air and generates great deal of Air Foam to extinguish a fire involving flammable liquids with smothering and cooling effect.

Air Foam Concentrate makes fine foams with excellent stability and thermal resistance, and freely flows and develops on liquid surface such as petroleum to promptly extinguish a fire. It also sticks firm to a solid surface, level or vertical, to prevent the fire from spreading.

Of the Fixed Air Foam Fire Extinguishing System, Air Foam Chamber and Subsurface Foam Injection are intended mainly for extinguishing a fire set on Exterior Storage Tanks, and Air Foam Spray Head for Flammable Liquid Hazards.

Air Foam Nozzle is used as Supplemental Air Foam Hydrant for Exterior Storage Tanks or as Air Foam Hydrant for Flammable Liquid Hazard. Air Foam Monitor Nozzle is provided near the inlet port of Exterior Storage Tanks and particularly on a quay or a pier for extinguishing a fire set on oily outflow on the sea.

Water Mist

Water Mist is a versatile and highly efficient fire-fighting medium. What differentiates Water Mist from traditional water based systems is its reduced droplet size. When a droplet of water vaporizes, it expands by some 1,600 times. Because heat absorption is a function of surface area and not volume, smaller droplets mean more surface area and therefore faster heat absorption.

Water Mist has the unique ability to deliver water as a fine atomized mist. This mist is quickly converted to steam that smothers the fire and prevents further oxygen from reaching it. At the same time, the evaporation creates a significant cooling effect of combustion gases and blocks the transfer of radiant heat. In this way, Water Mist combines the fire suppression properties of both conventional water-based deluge or sprinkler systems and gaseous fire suppression systems.

Utilizing the unique properties of Water Mist, we offer both a low and a high-pressure version of Water Mist applications to provide your facility with the right solution in the event of a fire.

Sprinkler System

Wet Pipe System
Wet pipe sprinkler systems are installed more often than all other types of fire sprinkler systems. Wet pipe sprinkler systems also are the most reliable, because they are simple, with the only operating components being the automatic sprinklers and the automatic alarm check valve. They are attached to pipes containing pressurized water at all times. Individual sprinklers in the vicinity of a fire are set off by heat, allowing water to flow through them immediately.

Dry Pipe System
Dry-pipe sprinkler systems are attached to pipes that contain pressurized air. Water is not present in the piping until the system operates. When heat activates the sprinklers to open, the air pressure is reduced, allowing the dry pipe valve to open and water to flow from the sprinkler. Dry-pipe systems are usually used in spaces which the ambient temperature may be cold enough to freeze the water in a wet pipe system

Pre-Action Sprinkler System
Pre-Action Sprinkler Systems contain an additional fire-detection device that will recognize a fire before the sprinklers are activated. The sprinklers are attached to a pipe containing pressurized air.

When the fire is detected by the fire alarm system, it opens the main valve, allowing water to flow through the pipes before the sprinklers are set off. When the heat activates the sprinklers, water flows through immediately, as in a wet- pipe system.

Pre-action systems are usually employed in areas that are at risk for serious water damage due to damaged sprinkles, such as in museums with rare art works, manuscripts, or books.
