Pre Engineered Fire Trace Systems

Indirect Release Systems

Our indirect release systems use heat and flame sensitive Firetrace Detection Tubing as a fire detection and system activation device, not as the discharge tube.

Here’s how they work

Once the tubing detects the fire, it ruptures, resulting in a drop of pressure causing the indirect valve to activate. The valve diverts flow from the detection tube to the larger outlet ports.

When the fire suppression system kicks in, a suppressing agent is discharged from the cylinder through the diffuser nozzles, flooding the area while effectively suppressing the fire quickly and thoroughly.

An indirect release system is typically used in larger areas that require a high volume of extinguishing agents to suppress the fire effectively.

Both direct and indirect systems are available in low- and high-pressure functionality for areas of any size. A fire suppression specialist will determine which system is right for your application.

AP­PLIC­A­TIONS

Manufacturing and Machining Applications

CNC Machining

An oil-based coolant increases the risk of fire due to the oil mist that forms during the machining process. Firetrace systems for CNC machines use clean agents to suppress fires right at their source.

EDM Machining

Fires in EDM machines frequently result from a drop in oil level. When this occurs, the large supply of coolant oil and oil vapor can burst into a major fire in moments, destroying an expensive machine and threatening lives and property.

Dry type Transformer

Firetrace indirect fire suppression system is helpful in detection and suppression of fire in case dry type transformer very effectively.
