Oil and Gas Production

Oil and Gas facilities are one of the most important industries that utilize many different types of fire suppression systems.

Lightening, static electricity, unprotected motors, generators, old wiring, complicated winding pipes and tubing all contribute to the challenges of providing proper fire protection. To complicate the matter even more, sabotage, terrorist attacks and other potential crimes increase the urgency to learn about and implement new fire suppression technologies.

When discharged, aerosol spray agent technology seeks out and suppresses fire on contact using a potassium based dry chemical, which attacks the free radicals of a fire, eliminating fire quickly and efficiently. Fires that spread to wells, weather in local or remote locations can cause enormous loss, un-tolled amounts of pollution and may cost millions before getting the situation contained.

An aerosol system operates using smoke detection, a releasing control panel (back up batteries included), plus all of the system components required by the local Authority Having Jurisdiction.

Aerosol thermal units can also be installed in small enclosed areas such as motor/generator rooms, electrical cabinets to help suppress a fire before it spreads. With its many applications can reduce fires risks in the Oil and Gas Industry.

The aerosol agent is a new, 21st century technology that is rapidly becoming the standard for fire suppression.
