HFC 227ea Total Flooding Engineered System
Ceasefire is the only Indian company manufacturing state-of-the-art HFC 227ea® Suppression systems with world leader DuPont.
The Ceasefire HFC 227ea flooding system is a suppression system that achieves extensive coverage. This self-activated system uses advanced technology to achieve maximum extinguishing efficiency.
Here's how it works. When the detectors sense a rise in temperature above normal levels, particles of smoke or a change in the quality of air, they alert the Control Panel. The Control Panel, in turn, activates the System.
Once activated, the impulse triggers a high-pressure solenoid valve that releases the HFC 227ea® gas from the cylinders to the nozzle via a flexible piping network. At the same time, a hooter goes off, warning personnel to clear the area while the extinguishing agent is dispersed in the room.
80% of HFC 227ea® 's firefighting effectiveness is achieved through heat absorption and 20% through direct chemical means (action of the fluorine radical on the chain reaction of a flame). Harnessing the latest in cutting-edge firefighting technology, this system has been designed for commercial enterprises and industries. This system requires no monitoring whatsoever, activating instantly in the event of a fire.
The HFC 227ea® flooding system can be manually activated too.
As soon as a fire is detected, the system is actuated and large quantities of extinguishing agent are released through wide-range nozzles that give the agent more reach. This effectively 'floods' the area, reducing the concentration of oxygen in the air and efficiently putting out the fire.
Being self-activated, the system offers protection from fire 24X7, whether anyone's around or not.
Classification : Works on class A, B, C fires and fires involving electrically-charged devices. Effective on a wide range of flammable and combustible
Electronics-Friendly: Shown to be electrically non-conductive and is safe for electrically charged equipment, it is kinder on electronics than the majority of extinguishing agents available in the market.
Ozone, Environment-Friendly: Being a clean-agent, this is an eco-friendly alternative to chemical and water-based extinguishing systems. As HFC 227ea® already exists as a gas in the Earth’s atmosphere and is one of the by-products of combustion, it does not harm the Earth’s stratospheric ozone layer. Its atmospheric lifetime is minimal.
Superior To Other Gas Agents : HFC 227ea® is superior to other gas-based extinguishing agents that have lower boiling points and tend to be corrosive.
High-value Risk Protection :Suitable for protection on a range of high-value risks as it virtually eliminates damage to high-tech equipment, artwork and other delicate and sensitive objects.
No Clean-up Required After Discharge : After a discharge, the extinguishing agent can be removed by simple ventilation.
24-hour Protection: Automatic detection and actuation controls ensure fire protection is always ‘on’.
Multiple Triggers : The system can be triggered either by the manual actuation system or through the automatic detection system.
Speedy Deployment, Minimal Downtime : Deploys quickly, reaching extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, stopping ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they cause significant damage. When a fire is extinguished this quickly, it means less damage, lower repair costs, and an extra margin of safety for people. It also means less downtime and disruption of business.
Lower Storage Requirements : In applications where space is at a premium, HFC 227ea® fire suppression systems are the superior choice. Stored in cylinders as a liquid and pressurised with nitrogen, FM-200® systems takeup to seven times less storage space than any system based on CO2 and inert gases.
Highly Effective: Not only does HFC 227ea® work in 10 seconds, it prevents re-ignition by rapidly cooling down temperatures in the surrounding area.
Highly Reliable : A fully assembled and 100% tested mechanical control head ensures reliable operation. A pressure gauge on the steel cylinders marks the gas levels so maintenance staff can replenish it whenever required. Protective chrome nozzle covers keep nozzles free from contamination and blockages by grease or other by-products that could inhibit the proper discharge of the extinguishing agent.
Globally Utilised : HFC 227ea® is the only globally accepted flooding system gas and is in use in over one hundred thousand applications, in more than 70 countries.
Residue-Free: Being a clean agent, it won’t leave behind oily residue, particulate or corrosive material .
