Fires in chemical industries and refineries often mean increased danger for employees, residents in the area and also for the firefighters. Our firefighting turbines operate with water mist and are not only more efficient in extinguishing and cooling; they have also been proven to work well as regards to the precipitation of pollutants.
Swift, effective action is required when working in chemical industries and refineries to prevent major damage in and around the plant. A significant advantage of our firefighting turbines working in this area is the faster ‘knock-down’ of the flames.
The turbine produces a fine water mist, which when compared to conventional monitors, is shown to have a higher extinguishing effect. By atomizing the water into water mist, the individual drops form a larger water surface and therefore can cool more effectively while extracting heat from the fire. The fine drops also move through the room in an almost gaseous form and can reach places which would not be accessible to an extinguishing jet.
The use of turbines with extinguishing foam has proved to be a very efficient solution for refineries. This also reduces the amount of water used to extinguish the blaze, which must be later cleaned up after the fire at considerable expense.
