DIRECT RELEASE SYSTEMS
Direct Release Low-Pressure (DLP) Fire protection systems from Firetrace keep your equipment safe
Firetrace’s fire protection – direct release systems utilize the Firetrace tube as both the “detection device” and “suppressant delivery”. As the fire begins, the portion of the tube nearest the point where the most heat is detected ruptures, forming an effective spray nozzle. The pressure will then drop as the Firetrace tube releases the entire contents of the cylinder through the distribution nozzle to effectively suppress the fire. More than one Firetrace tube can be used enabling the system to cover more area. Our fire suppression systems are critical for safety and protecting your valuable equipment.
INDIRECT RELEASE SYSTEMS
Protect your facility with Indirect Release Low-Pressure (ILP) fire protection systems from Firetrace
Firetrace’s fire protection – indirect release systems use the Firetrace Tube as a “Fire Detection” and “System Activation” device, not as the discharge tube.
Once the tubing senses the fire, it then ruptures – resulting in a drop of pressure causing the Indirect Valve to activate. This diverts flow from the detection tube to the larger outlet ports.
Then the fire suppression system kicks in – the Extinguishing Agent is discharged from the cylinder through the diffuser nozzles, flooding the area in a proprietary mix of fire extinguishing chemicals, effectively suppressing the fire quickly and thoroughly.
This system is typically used in larger areas that require a high volume of Extinguishing Agents, to effectively suppress the fire.
Multiple diffuser nozzles may be added to meet the specific application requirements.
