UPS BATTERY RACK
“A fire outbreak can catch you offguard when least  expected. Your UPS Battery Racks are highly vulnerable to a fire outbreak.”

CAUSES OF FIRE

  • It is a common knowledge that lead acid batteries release hydrogen gas during charging
  • This process can potentially result in an explosion
  • Improper maintenance & loosely connected terminals, makes it a risky affair
  • Lack of ventilation & exhaust fans could only exaggerate the situation further
  • Pests nuisance in certain places cannot be counted out

CAUSING

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

IF, A FIRE IS IGNITED, THEN :

  • Fire in an UPS Battery rack can spread rapidly due to availability of Hydrogen gas in the room
  • Battery rack fire is usually in the form of a blast; the resultant thrust due to explosion can cause neighboring batteries to jolt and shift from its location causing terminals to short, worsening the situation further

WEFIRE™ Solution

  • Unlike a total room flooding solution, WEFIRE™ system works to protect the critical assets from within. A Linear pneumatic WEFIRE™ Heat Detection Tube is routed few inches above the battery rack 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 and mission critical servers inside
