Electrical Panel

“A fire outbreak can catch you offguard when least expected. Your Electrical Panels are highly vulnerable to a fire outbreak.”

CAUSES OF FIRE

  • Wire fatigue
  • Improper installation
  • Overloaded circuits
  • Equipment failures
  • Poor maintenance

CAUSING

  • Business downtime
  • Production loss
  • Revenue loss
  • Infrastructure loss
  • Loss of human life

IF, A FIRE IS IGNITED, THEN :

  • It is literally impossible to suppress with portable extinguisher, since the panel doors are always closed
  • Panel rooms are mostly unsupervised due to which there is a considerable time lag from the start of the fire until people around are alerted

WEFIRE™ Solution
  • A Linear pneumatic WEFIRE™ Heat Detection Tube is routed inside the panel which senses the heat of the fire at its insipient stage
  • The WEFIRE™ Heat Detection tube upon detection, ruptures at the hottest point forming a nozzle like opening. This activates the cylinder valves and the clean agent gas discharges through the opening directly onto the fire
  • The gas is Non-conducting, non-toxic and leaves no residue; hence does not spoil expensive electronics inside
WEFIRE™ tube discharge system

WEFIRE™ Heat Detection Tube is routed in a zig-zag pattern inside the electrical panel throughout all the compartments. This tube is connected with the Tube Discharge System cylinder containing the extinguishing gas. A hooter is also provided to alert people post system activation.

WEFIRE™ recommends the use of following clean agent extinguishing gas for Electrical Panels

  • 3M’s Novec 1230 or FK-5-1-1-2 based extinguishing agent
  • FM200 or HFC
