Fire Protection Solutions for Marine Vessels

Marine Vessels are continuously offshore for extended periods of time. During these periods they must have a completely self-sustaining Fire Protection which is key to ensuring the safety of the vessel and the crew/passengers on board. The engines are one of the key locations that need protection.

The engines are one of the life-sustaining assets on a marine vessel. If a fire was to break out and destroy the engine, the consequences could be severe. This could include loss of electrical power, loss of engine propulsion, loss of clean water, and loss of vessel. EQUIPRO offers the ultimate fire protection systems for Marine Vessels. EQUIPRO Systems utilize our Proprietary Fire Detection Tubing and in doing so, provides a truly independent, reliable, fully automated 24/7 protection against the threats of fire. The environment onboard Marine Vessels provides many challenges for fire protection. Salt water is much more highly corrosive than normal water and high levels of moisture within the vessel can create many problems with conventional fire protection system.

Secondary Action Release System (SAR)

EQUIPRO Secondary Action Release (SAR) System utilizes EQUIPRO proprietary detection Tubing as a means of automatically detecting fires. As the pressure in the tubing drops, it initiates the valve to open and release the fire extinguishing A agent through a conventional nozzle via either brass or stainless steel tubes.


Direct Action Release Systems (DAR)

EQUIPRO Direct Action Release (DAR) Systems utilizes the EQUIPRO proprietary Detection Tubing as a means of fire detection and also act as a discharge pipe for the extinguishing agent. The Fire Detection Tubing reacts quickly and linearly to heat during a fire and the tubing will burst in the direction of the heat source. This in effect creates a nozzle-like hole in the Fire Detection Tubing which is directed towards the fire, thereby extinguishing it quickly.


How does EQUIPRO Manage This?

EQUIPRO Detection Tubing reacts to heat. It does not require any electrical power to work. The Detection Tubing can be used as both a detection device and as an agent delivery system. The tubing is installed and pressurized to burst at the point closest to the fire. In doing so, it releases the fire extinguishing agent directly at the source of fire.

The Fire Detection Tubing is also durable whilst being flexible. This means that it can be placed in virtually any environment and work around any obstacles. As the Fire Detection Tubing reacts to heat, there are no false discharges due to dust, dirt, insects and moisture that are typically associated with conventional electrical detectors.
