Protecting against the risk of fire is crucial for operations using dust and mist collectors. These systems are essential for maintaining a clean and safe work environment, but due to the nature of the work in many shops and factories these collection units can be very susceptible to fire.
Firetrace’s unique systems work effectively in these enclosed environments thanks to the placement of the proprietary red Firetrace Detection Tubing (FDT) which provides detection is right at the source of a growing fire.
Upon detection the Firetrace system can deliver fire suppression agent either directly into the collection media or upstream in the dust collection system. This allows the airflow to draw the agent into the filtration system or collector.
Firetrace systems can use a variety of “clean” fire suppression agents such as DuPont FM-200, Novec 1230 and CO2 (carbon dioxide). These agents leave no residue and require no cleanup, making them ideal for dust and mist collection environments.
A Firetrace system can be easily installed into any new or existing dust and mist collectors.
