Mining Fire Suppression

fire suppression protection mining oil gas Excavator Dozer Hauler Dragline Loader transformer conveyer beltMining, both surface and underground, is a complex industry with significant fire protection challenges. Large and expensive off-road vehicles and heavy processing equipment are often run around the clock in extreme temperatures, harsh environments and remote locations. The presence of flammable fuel and lubricating oils in close proximity with electrical hazards threatens a high fire-risk. A fire would cause extensive damage to equipment, production downtime and potential loss of human lives.

Pyrogen’s IPEX (Impulse Podwer Extinguising Module) kit is a fire suppression solution designed for mining vehicles and mobile equipment operating under aggressive environments. It is a robust, reliable and effective fire protection system with no maintenance required. Read more “Mining Fire Suppression”

Passive Fire Protection or Compartmentalization

Passive Fire Protection or Compartmentalization in structures, such as land-based buildings, traffic tunnels, ships, aerospace vehicles, or submarines, is the fundamental basis and aim of passive fire protection.

The idea is to divide a structure into “fire compartments”, which may contain single or multiple rooms, for the purpose of limiting the spread of fire, smoke and flue gases, in order to enable the three goals of fire protection: Read more “Passive Fire Protection or Compartmentalization”

Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression System

Pyrogen EXA & EXA-M / Condensed aerosol fire suppression is a particle-based form of fire extinction similar to gaseous fire suppression or dry chemical fire extinction. The aerosol employs a fire extinguishing agent consisting of very fine solid particles and gaseous matter to extinguish fires. The condensed aerosol microparticles and effluent gases are generated by the exothermic reaction; until discharged from the device, the particles remain in vapor state. They are cooled and "condensed" within the device and discharged as solid particles.

Hypoxic Air Technology for Fire Prevention

PYROGEN Pyroprevent Fire Prevention System / Hypoxic air technology for fire prevention, also known as oxygen reduction system, is an active fire protection technique based on a permanent reduction of the oxygen concentration in the protected rooms. Unlike traditional fire suppression systems that usually extinguish fire after it is detected, hypoxic air is able to prevent fire. Read more “Hypoxic Air Technology for Fire Prevention”

Fire Detection System

detectionA key aspect of fire protection is to identify a developing fire emergency in a timely manner, and to alert the building’s occupants and fire emergency organizations. This is the role of fire detection and alarm systems. Depending on the anticipated fire scenario, building and use type, number and type of occupants, and criticality of contents and mission, these systems can provide several main functions. First they provide a means to identify a developing fire through either manual or automatic methods and second, they alert building occupants to a fire condition and the need to evacuate. Another common function is the transmission of an alarm notification signal to the fire department or other emergency response organization. They may also shut down electrical, air handling equipment or special process operations, and they may be used to initiate automatic suppression systems. Read more “Fire Detection System”

Fire Suppression System

suppressionFire can be controlled or extinguished, either manually (firefighting) or automatically. Manual control includes the use of a fire extinguisher or a standpipe system.

Fire suppression systems are used to extinguish or prevent the spread of fire in a building or vehicle Suppression systems use a combination of dry chemicals and/or wet agents to suppress equipment fires.

Automatic fire suppression systems control and extinguish fires without human intervention. Examples of automatic systems include fire sprinkler system, gaseous fire suppression, and condensed aerosol fire suppression. When fires are extinguished in the early stages loss of life is minimal since 93% of all fire-related deaths occur once the fire has progressed beyond the early stages.
