Fire can be a serious risk in dust collectors because it can occur unexpectedly. Hight air flow and scattered small particles of dust are prone to combustion and even explosion when exposed to just one spark. It can cause not only equipment damage, but also may result in personnel injury. So as a great solution for ensuring protection, an uninterrupted and power independent extinguishing systems are recommended.
What we did
Industrial filtration units and dust collectors were located inside and outside the production facility. BlazeCut C Series ILP systems with a solenoid and pressure switch were fitted. For the distribution of FK-5-1-12 extinguishing agent a rigid tubes were used. To ensure short path for the extinguishing agent, the cylinder was placed near the top of the dust collector. For fire detection a heat probe or BlazeWire were used. Where required, a stainless-steel wire was mounted, to support the BlazeWire so it could be placed in a desired distance from the potential fire hazard. Outside, a plastic box was installed to increase protection of the cylinder and its components from weather conditions and tampering. For easy access and monitoring, remote electric actuator, fire panel and beacon/buzzer combo were installed inside the production facility. Depending on agent amount, different number of nozzles with 360° dispersal patterns provide coverage for the whole enclosure.
