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 detection and suppression of fires/flames around critical machinery and/or high-risk areas with remarkable flame suppression capabilities, utilizing a very small amount of water.
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 damages it will cause. It is also important that the extinguishing itself will not affect the machine or sensitive equipment around the machine.
The purpose of a Quick Suppression System is to act quick enough to avoid or significantly reduce damages and production downtime, as well as preventing the fire from escalating and spreading into other areas. This will greatly enhance employee safety and keep the fire cost to a minimum. The small amount of water and the small water droplets used in Firefly’s water mist system will have a minimal effect on the machine, so that the production can be started up as quick as possible after an activation of the system.
The Firefly Quick Suppression System can be used in various industries to protect Tissue Machines and Converting Machines, IR Dryers in the paper industry, Woodworking Planers and Sanders, Wood Panel Presses, Oil Pump Rooms, Shredders, Conveyors, Transformers, Mill Rooms, etc.
