This new technology uses a flexible pneumatic tube, which is strategically routed through small applications to detect and extinguish fires at their source using 3M TM Novec TM 1230 Fire Protection liquid.
Fike's small space suppression comes in two configurations: direct and indirect. The direct system is designed for electrical cabinets, as the heat-reactive pipe is routed through the confined space. Any fire in space will melt a hole in the tube, which is pressurized with nitrogen and will open the suppression cylinder. The agent will then be released from the hole and directly into the fire.
As for the Indirect system (CNC Machines) it is designed for CNC machines and uses thermoreactive tubes. In addition, it features a wide range of cylinder sizes: available in 1kg, 2kg, 4kg, 6kg, 9kg and 18kg cylinders to provide the most cost-effective size for your unique application. It also has custom nozzles with UL certification guarantee the fragmentation of the agent into small droplets to vaporize to overwhelm the fire; otherwise, the agent is delivered in an inefficient flow.
