The containers of the fire-extinguishing system can be installed directly in the engine room, preferably in the adjacent compartments.
KIDDE-DEUGRA steel containers, which, of course, meet the relevant standard and EC Pressure Container Guideline, are used as containers for extinguishing agent.
The special safety of these containers is guaranteed by a valve, which opens particularly fast in case of fire. The high outlet cross-section of the valve also guarantees a very high flow rate with a reliable short extinguishing time.
The valve itself is connected to the pipeline system, which feeds the extinguishing agent to the area to be protected, where it is distributed. Even if the air mass flow of the engine is high, the fire will be safely extinguished.
Depending on application, KIDDE-DEUGRA uses various gaseous extinguishing agents, powders or pulverised aerosols.
