How our fire suppression systems for trains work
Our train fire suppression systems feature a flexible sensor tubing which is installed directly above and around your engine, close to where a fire is most likely to occur.
The tubing is pressurised with dry nitrogen. The dynamics of pressurisation make the tubing more reactive to heat. If a fire starts, its heat causes the pressurised sensor to burst at the hottest spot (approx. 170°C).
The sudden tube depressurisation actuates a special pressure differential valve and instantly floods the entire compartment with FireDETEC T555 ea extinguishing agent which suppresses the fire in seconds.
