Automatic Extinguishers

Automatic Extinguishers


inControl’s Torrent Series automatic fire extinguishers act fast to knock down fires before they can take hold. With discharge times of 10 seconds or less, installations benefit from fast response to the danger posed by fire.

Totally self-contained and fully automatic, these automatic fire extinguishers require no external power or connections, yet they maintain fire protection around the clock, delivering years of reliable service. Installation takes just minutes, and relocation is easily accomplished to suit changing fire protection needs.

Torrent series of automatic fire extinguishers use FM-200: an effective clean agent that’s approved for use in occupied spaces. FM-200 leaves no messy residue, and will not harm sensitive equipment. It’s also approved by Environment Canada and the US Environmental Protection Agency as an acceptable Halon alternative. Safe, effective, economical, and uncomplicated, these extinguishers are ideal either as part of a total fire protection package, or as an incremental upgrade to existing fire protection measures.

  • No damage or residue – protected area contents not affected by the extinguishing agent.
  • Simple one-person installation – no piping, electric wiring, special tools, or expertise necessary.
  • Fully automatic – 24/7 fire protection, anywhere.

Low Pressure CO2

Low Pressure CO2

Download Low Pressure CO2 data sheets

CO2 Cylinder Valves Application Guide


Low pressure CO2 systems are specialized fire suppression systems designed to maintain the carbon dioxide supply at 0° F and 300 psig in an insulated, refrigerated pressure storage units. Thesestorage unit contains the amount of CO2 required to protect a specific hazard.

inControls’ Low Pressure CO2 Fire Suppression Systems are Factory Mutual approved to meet all present codes and standards.

We offer complete equipment/engineering packages or complete turn key installations including detection and control systems. Our product line includes horizontal and vertical tanks ranging in sizes from 3/4 ton to 60 tons, ½” through 8” master/selector valves, and a complete line of total flood and local application nozzles that can protect from 2 feet above the hazard up to 20 feet above the hazard.

CO2 Low Pressure Storage Units

The inControl Low Pressure Carbon Dioxide System carbon dioxide (CO2) stored, mostly as a liquid, at approximately 300 psi (2070 kPa) and 0ºF (- 17.8ºC). It is maintained at this pressure and temperature by mechanical refrigeration. When needed, operation of the refrigeration system cools and condenses CO2 vapor in the vapor space of the unit, thus converting it to liquid and reducing the pressure. The storage unit is very well insulated, keeping to a minimum the heat transfer to the CO2 from the warmer ambient air of the storage location. A slight rise in storage pressure from this heat input starts the refrigeration cycle described herein. Stored as a liquid at an ambient temperature of 70ºF (21ºC) carbon dioxide has a vapor pressure of approximately 850 psi (5865 kPa). Thus, high pressure cylinders are used for storage and it is designated as High Pressure CO2. This brochure explains low pressure storage and describes the wide range of storage units available. The storage of CO2 in the “Low Pressure” state has numerous advantages over cylinder storage.

Low Pressure CO2 is:

Effective…Low pressure CO2 is effective on a wide range of flammable and combustible materials in both surface and deep-seated fires, which adds up to greater uniformity and predictability.

Fast...Carbon dioxide is a colorless and odorless three-dimensional clean agent. Within seconds, it penetrates the entire hazard area to smother combustion.

Non-damaging…CO2 is normally harmless to equipment, materials and property. It does not cause spoilage, requires no clean up and leaves no residue, thus minimizing downtime after a fire.

Non-conductive…CO2 is electrically nonconductive and three-dimensional.

Economical…When a hazard requires multiple discharges or when CO2 requirements exceed 4000 lbs. (1818 kg) of agent [2000 lbs. (909 kg) for main discharge and 2000 lbs. (909 kg) for reserve], the overall system cost is less than a high pressure CO2 system.

Efficient…Low pressure CO2 chokes off combustion quickly. The dry ice “snow” in the discharge allows “local application” protection of non-enclosed hazards.

Compact…Storage units are compact and often installed outdoors to conserve floor space. Capacities range from 1-1/4 tons (1.13 MT) to 60 tons (54.5 MT) or more.

 

Applications

Typical hazards protected by carbon dioxide systems are:

• Printing Plants • TransformerVaults/Electrical Cabinets • Power Plants • Dip Tanks • Rolling Mills • Coating Machines • Exhaust and Fume Handling Systems • Flammable Gas or Liquid Storage Areas • Generators • Inerting Applications • Coal handling, grinding, and storage systems • Data processing centers • Flammable materials storage • Shipboard machinery spaces and cargo holds • Telecommunications

 

Why CO2…

Carbon dioxide is a standard commercial product that is commonly used for carbonated beverages, for fast freezing food, for medical purposes, for purging pipes and tanks, as well as for extinguishing fires. It is readily available in most cities and seaports throughout the world. For more than 80 years carbon dioxide has been used for fire protection purposes. The NFPA standard for fire extinguishing systems was initiated in 1928, was first adopted in 1929. It has been revised approximately 26 times since, and represents the accumulated knowledge and experience of those who have designed and used CO2 systems for fire extinguishing purposes.

High Pressure CO2

High Pressure CO2


Proven reliability for mission-critical applications–High Pressure CO2 Fire Protection Solutions

Every enterprise has equipment and facilities that are vital to its operation. Business would be seriously affected if these were destroyed by fire. In many cases valuable assets should not be protected by water or other similar extinguishing agents, as these types of agents often are unable to reach inaccessible parts of the hazard. They can also cause considerable damage — even in excess of that done by the fire itself.

Carbon dioxide is a reliable, versatile and efficient fire fighting agent. It has provided decades of successful operation. It is a dry, inert, non-corrosive gas that will not damage equipment or materials or contaminate liquids or food. It does not leave any residue to clean-up, and as a result, business down-time is held to a minimum. In addition, carbon dioxide is a non-conductor of electricity, and can even be used without danger in spaces housing high voltage electrical equipment. Choose a High Pressure CO2 Fire Protection Solution.

Featuring innovative high-performance cylinder valves

  • Patented cost-saving unibody design – does not have separate valve and discharge heads.
  • Engineered for reliability – no top or bottom cap joints to leak.
  • Simple to set up – slave valve operates from manifold back pressure … no need for a separate pressurizing line.
  • High performance operation – clear unimpeded right-angled flow path.
  • Easy to maintain – removable valve seat for quick replacement.
  • Ingenious force differential valve – uses cylinder pressure to hold the valve closed.
  • Machined brass construction for added reliability – no drop-forged parts.

 

Applications

Typical hazards protected by carbon dioxide systems are:

• Flammable Liquid Storage • Chemical Laboratories •Transformer Vaults • Oil Circuit Breakers • Engine Enclosures Pump Rooms • Hydraulic Oil Cellars • Gas Turbines • Equipment Enclosures • Storage Vaults
