Automatic fire suppression line

September 2016 Fire & Safety, Products

The BlazeCut automatic fire suppression product line is a simple, easy solution for the protection of motor vehicles, marine craft and equipment cabinets/consoles.

The system consists of a heat sensitive BlazeCut Tube made of special plastic that is closed by a stainless steel fitting on each end. The BlazeCut Tube has both storage and detection function, which means the extinguishing agent, is stored directly in the BlazeCut Tube and no additional storage device such as cylinder is needed.

The BlazeCut system is ideal for protection of small enclosures with greater risk of fire and operates automatically without any power supply by detecting higher temperatures. When the temperature in the protected enclosure rises to a critical threshold, the heat sensitive BlazeCut Tube melts down at the point where the affecting temperature is the highest, releasing the extinguishing agent (either HFC-227ea or HFC-236fa, depending on the system type) stored in the tube directly onto the source of the fire.

Both the HFC-227ea and HFC-236fa extinguishing agents are the agents of choice for protection of enclosures where any residue would cause harm to the protected sensitive devices.
