The BlazeCut system is designed to protect small enclosures susceptible to greater risk of fire.
It operates automatically, without a power supply, through detection of high 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. Melting of the BlazeCut tube creates a hole, thereby releasing the extinguishing agent in the tube directly onto the source of the fire.
BlazeCut uses two different extinguishing agents: for vehicle application an HFC236A agent is used, and an HFC227 agent for non-vehicle applications. The main benefits of BlazeCut include a long shelf-life and no maintenance. It is perfect for non-occupied spaces and no training is required for the simple installation. BlazeCut can operate in temperatures of -40°C and the activation temperature is around 120°C.
BlazeCut is suitable for a variety of applications and can be used in Class A, B and C, as well as electrical fires. Additional components are available for monitoring purposes. These include a pressure switch that sends a signal when the pressure in the tube drops, and can be linked to a fire panel or directly to a PLC.
Typical applications include:
• Engine compartments of vehicles, machines, pleasure boats.
• Electrical, server, and battery cabinets.
• Vending machines, POS machines, ATMs.
• Electrical charging stations.
• Enclosures with audio-video devices.
• Small generators.
