Damn, pneumatic heat sensors have been around forever! One of the first concepts.
thousands of feet are still in use.
Most of our stuff is in the paint storage catagory and running the CO2.
Great concept, just hard to test.
We have not used or installed this one yet. Not for the other clean agents listed anyway.

I can see many small installs where this would be nice.
However, I have to work out some issues I have with a pressurized tube throughout the machine. And the need to replace the tube after an event.

Do you have documentation for the Hydro calcs?
How is the tube diameter calculated?
How does one service the tanks? Are there shut off valves etc so the tank can be removed and weighed?

Hi,
I just did my first inspection on a 'Fire-trace' indirect system.

ABC dry chem on a freight loader (lift that removes containers from the train cars).

I had no idea what I was looking at at first,but after I got some paper work they are pretty straight forward. I'm just not too sure about the pressurized poly tube in the engine compartment. it was installed inside a rubber protector.Similar to the way they install the wiring harness.

Hi folks, I'm a bit late to the game, but if you have any quesitons about the Firetrace system, feel free to contct me.

Scott Starr
Director of Marketing
Firetrace

www.firetrace.com

Noticed links to our various application videos above, including wind turbines. We just had a save last month in California, and we're doing a 100+ turbine install in Texas later this month. With a wind turbine, effectively we're protecting the various cabinets within the nacaelle versus tryign to flood the whole nacelle. With the airflow in the turbine, getting concentration is challenging... and with the fact it may be occupied, overcompensating becomes a safety issue. Water mist is considered too heavy and dry chemical creates visual issues.

The fact we're providing protection with the pnuematic tube enables us to use one small system to protect multiple locations - whichever enclosure experiences the fire, that is where the tube bursts - and the agent delivers through the burst.

At the end of the day, this may be a cost - effective solution for some of your cusotmers needs where total floding clean agent may simply be too expensive, especially with the issues int he clean agent market. If we can be of help, please give us a call.

Thanks, we appreciate the support!

We've got well over 200,000 systems installed worldwide, in everything from electrical controls to military trucks. It's been a lot of fun (and somewhat of a challenge) working with such a flexible system that has so many different applications.

Best,

Scott

Hi Scott,thanx for the contact info. And welcome aboard.

Since my last post I have been exposed to more systems that we had and I was not aware of.

Mostly I have seen hm in smaller machinery for the weapons manufacturing tools,and other such enclosures.

Excavation equipment and the like.
As said before,with a little paperwork and guidance...Nice little system to work with.

Yes I have had a few discharges during maint, mainly operator error with the valve.
