Selection recommendations

Varieties. Fire extinguishing installations should be divided into three groups, depending on the design.

  1. Aggregate systems are installed directly at the facility, all technical means are independent units.
  2. Modular plants are made up of individual modules. They can be mounted both in the protected and in the adjacent room.
  3. Microencapsulated devices use solid miniature particles that respond to temperature increases.

Extinguishing methods. There are several effective fire extinguishing options.

  1. Volumetric installations create a special atmosphere in the room that does not support combustion.
  2. Surface devices fight fires on surfaces.
  3. Locally volumetric systems are responsible for part of the room and specific equipment.
  4. Local surface installations extinguish a fire in a given area of ​​the surface and on fixed equipment.

Types of extinguishing material. Several types of substances are used to extinguish a fire today.

  1. Water compounds turn into a vapor cloud, displacing oxygen from the combustion zone. They are cheap and safe for people. But it is impossible to extinguish electrical equipment with such substances, they cause serious material damage to the decoration of the room.
  2. Foam products prevent oxygen from entering the ignition zone by spreading the foam over the surface. Such substances are used in rooms where petroleum products and flammable liquids are stored. Foam joints are not suitable for extinguishing gases and energized equipment.
  3. Gas installations are suitable for equipping paint shops, rooms with electrical equipment and flammable liquids. But the resulting substances are dangerous to human health.
  4. Warehouses, diesel generator rooms, automatic telephone exchanges are equipped with powder systems. Of the minuses, it should be noted the difficulties with the supply of powder through the pipeline and the danger to humans.
  5. Aerosol installations reduce the temperature in the room, prevent the spread of fire. Scope of application – cable structures, electrical installations, flammable substances.
  6. Combined systems are used in complex projects. They are highly efficient, but expensive and require expert maintenance.
