The specialised Firetrace Detection Tubing combines leak resistance, flexibility, durability and precise temperature sensitivity, allowing it to react quickly when heat from a fire is present. Firetrace detection tubing connects to a custom-engineered valve and a Firetrace cylinder that contains the best fire suppression agent for a particular hazard.
The effectiveness of a genuine Firetrace system comes from the proprietary, polymer tubing that will rupture when exposed to a flame. This specialised Firetrace Detection Tubing combines leak resistance, flexibility, durability and precise temperature sensitivity, allowing it to react quickly when heat from a fire is present. Firetrace detection tubing connects to a custom-engineered valve and a Firetrace cylinder that contains the best fire suppression agent for a particular hazard.
Designed for simple installation, often very near the source of a potential fire, Firetrace is a self-activating suppression system that reliably suppresses fires in seconds, and through the local authorised distributor, Clearspray, it can provide a low maintenance, cost-effective solution to the problem of “micro-environment” fire protection.
Micro-environments are applications where the hazard is typically contained within a critical enclosure, such as equipment, machines, vehicles or storage compartments.
Firetrace systems can be installed in virtually any enclosed space where high-value assets are located or where an increased risk of fire could be mitigated by an automatic fire suppression system, and Firetrace’s systems are compatible with most commercially available fire suppression agents.
Firetrace systems are the only systems of their type to carry major listings and approvals from UL, ULC, FM, CE and more than 20 other international agencies. They are also totally self-contained, do not require any type of outside electrical source and will remain totally operational during unexpected power outages.
Simple design and application can normally be installed in a few hours, significantly reducing expensive labour costs, and this reliable detection tubing virtually eliminates false discharges and subsequent costly down-time and expenses. In addition, this flexible detection tubing can provide protection in difficult and hard-to-reach areas where other detection methods cannot be used.
The worldwide network of authorised Firetrace distributors – all properly trained in the installation and maintenance of Firetrace systems – provides hazard analysis, quotations, installations, service and support on Firetrace systems, to reliably and effectively protect a person’s assets. The only limits to this micro-environment protection are professional fire protection expertise and the imagination.
Two types of system are available, depending on the application. The Direct and Indirect Release System utilises the Firetrace Detection Tubing as both the fire detection device and the fire suppressant delivery system.
The portion of the tube nearest to the hottest point of the fire ruptures, forming an effective discharge “nozzle”. The pressure drop in the tube releases the entire contents of the cylinder through this nozzle.
With the Indirect Release System, the Firetrace Detection Tubing is used only as a detection device. The fire suppression agent is delivered via copper tubing, stainless steel tubing or braided hose. When the tube “bursts”, the suppressant is discharged through strategically placed nozzles within the protected enclosure.
