In today’s’ machinery spaces, fires can lead to problems that go beyond loss of life and the loss of the equipment. It can lead to the destruction of a facility or the loss of a vessel. The SECURIPLEX has the approvals that are right for your application, whether it is for total flooding or local application fire protection. Through our many installations worldwide, we have systems that protect emergency diesel generators in industrial / commercial applications, main propulsion units on seagoing vessels or engine protection on offshore oil rigs. In certain applications, the emergency generator is usually the last line of defense with respect to a power failure. Many facilities, from hospitals, to wireless carriers to major world manufacturers, cannot afford to have their emergency systems damaged during a fire.
The FIRE-SCOPE® 5000 (whether in atotal flood or local application) will ensure fast extinguishment time with a minimal amount of damage to equipment allowing for quick cleanup and fast turnaround so that you are up and running again as quickly as possible. The FIRE-SCOPE® 5000 nozzle is constructed in materials that are the most corrosion resistant in the industry. Manufactured out of stainless steel and titanium alloy, it is the highest quality nozzle in the world today. On board a vessel, there might be instances where sea water is required in an emergency. The FIRE-SCOPE® 5000 nozzle is extremely resistant to corrosion allowing for use in sea water with minimal damage in an emergency. In addition to the many benefits that a water mist system offers, the SECURIPLEX water mist requires no additives! Some of the key features of water mist in machinery spaces is that the system is designed to extinguish even the most severe fires including pressurized spray fires, engine oil fires and turbine bearing fires. Some other features include:
- Cooling of hot metal to prevent re-ignition without warping of engine components.
- Scrubs out toxic gases.
- Extremely high cooling capacity of ambient temperature to prevent damage to other equipment in vicinity of fire.
- Maintains high oxygen content in area.
- Easy re-charging procedure whether using our selfcontained systems or electric drive versions. Just pour in water!
The SECURIPLEX FIRE-SCOPE® 5000 high pressure water mist system is the solution when life cycle costs are a consideration, in addition to safe and effective fire protection. The FIRE-SCOPE® 5000 water mist system is the most cost effective solution over the service life of the system. Usually, it takes just one discharge from an FM-200 or other type of system to make the upfront cost of installing a competing fire protection system cost inhibitive. Whether you are looking for an FM approved, ABS/USCG certified or even a Navy tested system, we have the experience and the approvals that are required to meet any challenge you have in any size space. We have specialized equipment that can take advantage of a regular pneumatic supply or a regular water supply whether you need an electric drive version or a self-contained system.
Our systems are approved to international standards such as FM 5560, IMO MSC/Circ. 913 and IMO MSC/Circ. 1165.
