Water Mist Based Transformer Auto Quell System

Water Mist Based Transformer Auto Quell System

  • Transformers are vital for any operation to run smoothly. But the oil that fuels them, coupled with high temperatures generated and the presence of electricity, makes the area vulnerable to fires. With transformers often being placed in remote areas or areas that aren’t easily accessible, there’s always the chance that a fire will not be extinguished in time. 


    The Ceasefire Watermist-based Suppression System is perfect for such environments as it self-activates, detects and suppresses the fire right when it ignites. The system is designed for transformers and uses a water reservoir supported by a water pump to continuously supply water into the system over a long period of time.


    In the event of a fire, the system kicks into action in seconds where specially designed nozzles dispense fine mist into the fire zone. This fine mist also known as watermist is made up of microscopic droplets of water (below 120 microns), when dispersed onto the fire-affected area, quickly puts out the flames and brings the temperature down to non-combustion levels. 


    Entirely self-activated and requiring no human intervention, this integrated system provides a complete detection and suppression solution for transformer fires, working quickly to save property and lives. 



    • Classification: Works on A, B, C, and Electrical Fires, and is suitable for a variety of applications.


    • Self-Actuating: Featuring an inbuilt detection mechanism that leads to instant and automatic activation, the system eliminates the need for human intervention.



    • 24x7 Protection: Being automated, the system is in a perpetual state of readiness to combat a transformer fire as soon as it breaks out.



    • Extended Reach: Includes flexible piping that can reach difficult-to-access areas that may not be able to accommodate any other means of detection.



    • Quick Installation: Simple design, and can be installed within a few hours, which means a significant reduction in labour costs and downtime.



    • Long Lasting: Its rugged quality ensures it can withstand even harsh conditions where other types of detection systems might be rendered inadequate.



    • Environmentally Friendly: Unlike other fire fighting agents like Fluorocarbons, Dry Chemical Powders, etc., Watermist does not have any effect on the ozone layer nor does it contribute to global warming.



    • Non-Conductive: The droplet size is <120 microns. Such a small-sized droplet has little kinetic energy. Being light, it floats in the air and is non-conductive up to 35kva.



    • High Standards: Built to Ceasefire’s high standards, which are in compliance with international quality standards.



    • Low Water Usage: With normal firefighting systems, only about 5% of water directed at the fire is actually used to put out the fire. Watermist not only uses less water to put out fires, it also uses only 20% of the water a conventional water-based system uses.



    • Post-Fire Damage Reduction: About 80% of the damages resulting from a fire are not caused directly by the flames, but by the extinguishing action. Since the mist, with an appropriate (high) degree of dispersion, fully evaporates in the fire environment, it leaves behind no collateral damage.



    • Economical: Water as an agent does not cost anything. Traditionally the amount of water required is significantly low. Which in turn means smaller water reservoirs and pumps with lesser construction and procurement costs.
