fire suppression system
Direct release system
The POWERTECH tube has a double function:
Firstly it detects the high temperatur due to a fire,which causes its break,and subsecuently it discharges the agent through it.
Indirect release system
The POWERTECH tube works as a detection device.
When a fire rises the temperature, the tube detects it and, immediately activares the cylinder releasing the extinguishing agent in the protecteted area though the pipes and nozzles.
The heat sensitive POWERTECH Detection Tubing is pressurized with nitrogen and in a fire situation is designed to rupture at any point along its length upon direct flame impingement or at high temperatures associated with fire conditions.
The rupture of the POWERTECH Detection Tubing releases the nitrogen pressure causing the cylinder valve to actuate, resulting in complete discharge of the agent.
