Pre-engineered Fire Suppression Systems for Vehicles & Kitchens

Written by Technoswitch

Rotarex FireDETEC systems use a proprietary continuous linear sensor tube that reliably detects and actuates release of the extinguishing agent using pneumatic technology. It is more flexible, space efficient and cost effective versus alternative mechanical or electronic systems.

The flexible sensor tubing is easily installed directly inside the extractor hood – directly above cooking areas. When in service, the tubing is pressurised with dry nitrogen to 16 bar. The dynamics of pressurisation make the tubing more reactive to heat. If a flame-up occurs, the heat of the fire causes the pressurised sensor tube to burst at the hottest spot. The sudden tube depressurisation actuates the special pressure differential valve and instantly floods the cooking area with Class F extinguishing agent. The fire is quickly suppressed just moments after it began — minimising damage and downtime. As a modular system, kits can be combined to increase the area under protection.
