A fire suppression system usually extinguishes the flames through heat absorption and oxygen depletion. In order to minimize the damage and losses from fire, a fire suppression system might be used.
How does the suppression system work so perfectly? The suppression system detects the flames through smoke, heat, and other warning signals. The parts of the suppression systems are often integrated into an alarm system, which gets triggered when the fire is detected. This trigger also initiates the primary steps that help to suppress the fire further. Most suppression systems release the fire extinguishing components automatically once the alarm is triggered. However, other systems require manual intervention.
Types of Fire Suppression Systems
There is no doubt that sprinklers are the most common type of fire suppression system. However, there are some suppression systems that do not use water to douse the fire. These systems can deal with fire situations where water could do more harm than any good. Here is a list of various types of fire suppression systems that you can use.
This type of suppression system is used for protecting the micro-environment. Electrical panels and engine compartments are the places where such systems are used for providing protection. Pre-Engineered Systems are also useful for suppressing Electrical Panels,EDM and CNC machine fires.
Clean Agent Suppression System
Clean Agent Suppression Systems use environment-friendly chemical agents to suppress fires. The clean-up process of the chemical is minimal, safe, and hassle-free.
Kitchen Fire Suppression System
This type of suppression system is typically used in commercial kitchens. The system properties a water-based chemical type mix over the fire when necessary. Most Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems are either manual or heat-triggered and do not require any electrical connection to operate.
Total Flooding System
In the suppression system, a network of distribution channels/piping is created throughout the space. The Total Flooding System is perfect for fighting fire breakouts of any type.
Why Do You Need A Fire Suppression System?
A Suppression system can offer you complete protection in any event of fire breakouts without damaging important documents or electrical and electronic equipment.
Most components used in the fire suppression systems are safe for humans, eco-friendly, and non-corrosive. The components also do not leave any gas discharge once they are used.
The fire suppression agents of these systems do not create much mess, making the clean-up process a lot easier.
If you have the suppression system by your side, you would not require much time to resume your business activities even after the fire incident as there will be no water damage to clean up.
