Electrical switchboards are widespread in many industrial applications, home installations, mobile and other cases. They can pose as high risk of fire due to poor installation, under-sized cabling, material aging, damage or other factors. As electrical switchboards are mainly in operation 24/7 and in many cases in places with no human presence as is also this example in a highway tunnel. It is of high importance to protect these by uninterrupted protection and power independent extinguishing systems.
What we did
In this case we installed BlazeCut systems protecting several electrical enclosures. BlazeCut C Series ILP systems with a solenoid and pressure switch were fitted. Depending on the protected volume, the designed systems for total flooding were 2.5 kg and 5 kg of the FK-5-1-12 suppression agent. Combination of braided hoses and steel tubes were used for agent distribution. Installed detection is in form of smoke detectors in every enclosure. As part of the system fire panels were installed for remote monitoring.
