The PistonFire suppression tank consists of a pressurized extinguishing agent storage tank and a valve body with a dust explosion-proof, weather-resistant housing in accordance with the requirements of the National Electrical Manufacture’s Association ("NEMA"). The NEMA-compliant housing houses the actuator mechanism, pressure switch, pressure gauge, fill valve, OSHA control switch, and field wiring connections. With a screwed-on cover and a quick-release connector for easy connection to the field wiring, the NEMA-compliant housing is completely sealed. When an incipient explosion is detected, the suppression container receives a switching signal. The actuating mechanism directs the rapid release of the pressurized extinguishing agent from dry chemicals into the protected area within milliseconds.
The competitive advantages include:
DOT and TC approved - pressurized in the factory, leak tested and transported to the point of use, versus pressurizing and leak testing on site
Monitored and interlocked low pressure switch according to the latest version of NFPA 69
OSHA locking plate according to the latest version of NFPA 69
Nozzles can be tested in the assembled state (NFPA 69), against dismantling or opening of the container by external companies.
