At Powertech our product portfolio can cover a large variety of applications, and selecting the best solution will not only offer the highest level of fire protection – it will also save you money.
Our technology can be focused on hazardous environment and will allow you to select either the PD (Direct) or PI (Indirect) system. Regardless of the system selected, the Powertech Tube is the reliable solution for detecting fire at its source quickly, before adjacent equipment can be damaged. Either system can utilise one of a variety of clean fire suppressing agents, selected specifically to suit the environment.
The Direct System utilises the Powertech detection tubing as both a fire detection device and the fire suppressing agent delivery system. The tubing is installed in and around the fire risk areas.
When a fire occurs, the tubing will burst at the point of highest heat, forming an effective discharge “nozzle”. The agent is then delivered through the tubing at the burst point, suppressing the fire quickly and thoroughly – right at the point of inception.
The Indirect System utilises the Powertech tubing as a detection-only device. When the tubing ruptures, the extinguishing agent is delivered through a network of braided hose or stainless steel tubing to strategically placed nozzles within the protected enclosure. Indirect systems are available with a manual release option which allows the operator to activate the system at the first sign of trouble.
