Cylinders (Stored Pressure)

The cylinders are constructed of steel and coated with an epoxy primer and a polyurethane top coat for excellent resistance to corrosion. The valve is brass and features a brass gauge guard to protect the pressure gauge in rugged environments. Cylinders are shipped pressurised, filled with ABC powder or Purple K dry chemical. The cylinder prevents the fire suppression agent from becoming contaminated, thereby reducing maintenance costs.

Available Cylinder Sizes

  • 13 lb. (Vertical Mount)
  • 25 lb. (Vertical Mount)
  • 25 lb. (Horizontal Mount)
  • 50 lb. (Vertical Mount)
  • 50 lb. (Vertical Mount – Short Cylinder)

Detection Network

Nozzles and distribution control panel system status is constantly monitored by the control panel and communicated to the vehicle operator by visual LED indicators and an audible alarm. The control panel connects to system wiring by modular colour coded, click lock connectors. Fire detection can be provided by fixed temperature thermostats, or linear or Safe-IR detectors.

Any combination can be used as necessary.

Fire suppression agent is delivered to hazard areas by fixed, high capacity, fast flow machined brass nozzles, allowing for immediate and automatic vehicle fire suppression, crucial to saving both lives and machinery.
