Higher Safety with Quick Response Time
When protecting critical machinery or high-risk areas from fires, the response time of a fire protection system is essential. The quicker a fire can be detected and extinguished, the less damage it will cause, production losses can be kept to a minimum and employee safety will be greatly enhanced. By using an appropriate fire protection system with a quick response time, the risk for the fire to be spread to other areas can also be minimised. Conventional sprinkler or water mist systems gives a good overall protection of a facility or a building, but is not ideal for protection of high-risk areas or critical machines. By the time a sprinkler system is activated, the fire has most likely already caused damages and possible even spread into other areas.
The purpose of a Quick Suppression System is to act quickly enough to avoid or significantly reduce damages and production downtime, as well as preventing the fire from escalating and spreading into other areas, and to increase personal safety.
What is a Quick Suppression System?
A Quick Suppression System is a Fixed Automatic Discharge Fire Suppression System, including flame detection, water mist suppression and control system, with strict demands on quick system response times and fast extinguishing performance. The system is designed for quick detection and suppression of fires/flames around critical machinery or high-risk areas. The Quick Suppression System in its design is similar to a Spark Detection System, which combines detection, extinguishing and a control panel. The spark detection system, however, is designed to detect and extinguish ignition sources preventing a fire, whereas the Quick Suppression System is designed to detect and extinguish fires/flames at a very early stage.
