Fire Suppression for Electrical Rooms in Manufacturing

The Next Generation of Fire Protection

From switchgear to closet: fire protection in critical electrical distribution pathways

Electrical rooms are a vital component of business power management systems. They handle power at various stages: high-voltage transmission in switchgear rooms, voltage stepping down in distribution pathway rooms, and final power delivery in electrical closets.

The varied functions of these rooms mean that they face different types of fire hazards. A fire in any part of this electrical setup can be catastrophic for a business or facility and lead to significant operational disruptions. In the best circumstances, the repair can take weeks or even months, and the cost of lost productivity can be devastating.

The Fire Risk

  • Electrical room faults or failures can lead to intense arc flashes, igniting nearby combustible materials.
  • Continuous operation and heavy load can cause overheating in equipment like transformers in distribution pathway rooms.
  • Accumulation of dust and corrosion, especially in less frequently visited areas like distribution pathway rooms, can impair electrical components, leading to short circuits and potential fires.
  • Exposure to dampness or water, even in typically moisture-resistant electrical rooms, can cause short circuits and electrical fires.
  • Small sparks from malfunctioning components or loose connections can trigger fires in flammable environments, particularly in areas with varied electrical interfaces like electrical closets.
  • Older, damaged, or improperly functioning equipment like circuit breakers, transformers, or switches can develop faults, leading to overheating or short circuits.

Efficiently protecting electrical distribution rooms against fire hazards

The Stat-X® total flooding condensed aerosol system is an ideal, effective means of protecting distribution pathway electrical rooms. The outcome is drastically improved if a fire is detected early and suppressed expediently.

The rapid response of a Stat-X system can quickly suppress fires while they are manageable, significantly reducing damage and downtime (non-involved circuits could even remain operational during the repair period).

The Stat-X electrically operated system can link to an automatic fire detection system, or the thermally activated units themselves can discharge at a pre-determined temperature.

Performance you can trust

Stat-X is an ideal fire suppression alternative to HFC based systems that are being regulated out of use through various global movements; and to PFAS based systems that are starting to face significant regulatory pressure at the local level, and likely to be more widespread in the coming years.
