Automatic fire suppression systems Maritime
A common reason for fire starting in an engine room is a leak in a hydraulic hose or a leaking fuel system coupling. The fuel or hydraulic oil evaporates and fills the engine room. The temperature of a turbo of a modern machine is more than enough to ignite this fuel cloud, leading to the entire engine room being on fire within a fraction of a second.
Wiejelo Equipment has extensive experience with fire suppression systems in ships which have to be almost continuously deployed with a considerable load. If these machines are parked after a long shift, heat, residual pressure and short circuits are factors which can cause a fire even a considerable time after the standstill. The mechanical functioning of the automatic fire suppression system ensures that the fire can be detected 24/7 and suppressed within a few seconds.
