Firefighting turbines offer recycling plants and landfill areas an effective and speedy form of fire protection.
Recycling plants and landfills are by their nature, prone to catch fire. On the one hand, they represent facilities that store a lot of flammable materials such as cardboard, paper or wood, which can self-ignite, and on the other, items such as batteries that are wrongly recycled can often result in igniting a fire.
Should it result in a serious situation, such a fire can render a lot of damage. The pockets of embers in the rubbish heap must be thoroughly extinguished to prevent it reigniting. It is necessary to completely dismantle the mountain of rubbish, piece by piece, to extinguish the burning embers with water and a carpet of foam.
Early detection of a fire and immediately extinguishing it can prevent, or at least minimize the damage.
We have developed a fast and effective solution for use in businesses prone to fire: the first stationary firefighting turbine with water mist – the FT10e. The turbine is fitted on the outside with a nozzle ring, which atomizes water into fine mist. This water aerosol is distributed using propellers and reaches over 50 meters in an atomized state and up to 75 meters as a full jet. Additional nozzles and a monitor can be fitted onto the inside of the turbine, which can be replaced at any time using a quick connector.
