SIEX EXPANDS ITS PRODUCT RANGE

Always at the forefront of design and innovation in fire extinguishing systems, SIEX launches new automatic systems.

 

These systems are automatic because they detect the fire and activate the system, discharging the agent into the protected enclosure and extinguishing the fire. In this way, it is not necessary to install a traditional electronic detection system or an alarm control centre, as the system is autonomous, detects and extinguishes.

 

FM Classification: “Clean Agent Extinguishers, Automatic or Manual-Automatic”. These are fixed units, thermally actuated to discharge throughout an enclosure. Because each unit is self actuating, extinguishers are to be used singly (one per enclosure) only. They contain an electrically non-conducting gaseous fire extinguishant that does not leave a residue upon evaporation. 

 

With the system, you have the mechanical detection and the extinction integrated in a single automatic and autonomous process (does not require electrical energy). 

 

Automatic because at the moment that the fire occurs it detects it and carries out the discharge of the agent in the protected risk. Autonomous because it is not necessary to install additional external systems of detection or supervision of the automatic system, although we include as an option the monitoring of the mechanical control centre´s state.

 

THE NEW RANGE OF SIEX AUTOMATIC SYSTEMS

The Dual system performs two actions DETECT and EXTINGUISH.

 

The DETECTION consists of a network of thermal bulbs according to the size and geometry of the room. These are activated at high temperatures very precisely and quickly, enabling the action and discharge of the fixed extinguisher system.

 

We have designed two types of detection:

SIMPLEX 

It has an activation line, as soon as a thermal bulb breaks, the system is activated and the extinguishing gas is released. 

 

COMPLEX

There are two types of complex detection, linear and cross, 4 bulbs are needed in both. In the linear with the breakage of one of the bulbs the system is activated, with the cross it has to break a bulb of each one of the lines so that the system is released. This method prevents accidental discharges.

 

As key components of the system we have:

THERMAL BULBS 

As soon as it detects the fire, it automatically gives the signal that the extinguishing system is activated.  

 

MANUAL REMOTE PULLERS

That activate the extinction of the system from a distance, without the need to break the thermal bulbs.

 

The EXTINCTION is developed with two different gases, HFC-227ea and FK-5-1-12, expanding the range of possibilities offered by these systems.

 

FM APPROVALS CERTIFIES SIEX AUTOMATIC SYSTEMS

Committed to the quality of our products, SIEX automatic systems have obtained Factory Mutual certification, commonly known as FM Approvals, which certifies that our systems are capable of detecting and extinguishing a fire in less than 60 seconds from the start of the flame.

 

WORLDWIDE RECOGNITION OF SIEX AUTOMATIC SYSTEMS

These FM Approvals certifications of the new SIEX automatic systems are added to the long list of internationally certified (such as FM, UL, VdS and LPCB) and statutorily approved (such as CNBOP, VNIIPO etc.) extinguishing systems that SIEX possesses, which makes them internationally recognized.
