Genset or Generator Set Fire Suppression

The Next Generation of Fire Protection

Talk To An Expert
The term “genset” is short for “generator set” or “generating set.” A genset is a portable piece of equipment which is a combination of an engine and an electric generator. The engine converts the chemical energy of a fuel to mechanical energy. That mechanical energy is used to spin the alternator rotor, converting mechanical energy to electricity. Gensets are usually enclosed in a steel or aluminum outer shell, that can withstand vibration, and is designed to reduce the noise to surrounding areas.
Gensets provide electrical energy to developing areas and locations that are not connected to the power grid. They are often used as an emergency, standby, back-up, or an alternate power-supply if the grid fails. They are also used in remote or mobile applications such as underground mines, military operations, or temporary medical facilities.

When a generator is used in conjunction with a diesel engine, it creates a diesel genset (DG). There are also gensets that run on natural gas or other fuels.

Do gensets catch fire?

In short, yes.  Fuel lines, lubrication oils or other flammable liquids can leak, and the leaked substance can come in contact with an ignition source. In addition, as in any machinery space, an electrical short or power surge can generate a quickly expanding fire and get out of control. Fire protection in these power generation environments is critical.

This Stat-X® fire suppression system is installed in a diesel genset providing emergency electricity for a tunnel drilling machine. The system consists of 4 Stat-X 100E units, a control panel, linear heat detection cable (LHD) cable, and other components.

The Solution

Stat-X condensed aerosol fire suppression is a self-contained automatic fire suppression system that provides rapid fire suppression in enclosed spaces. It is a low-profile fire suppression system that is simple to install.

A Stat-X system will typically detect and suppress the fire before it causes significant damage to the equipment and an interruption to your business.
