Fume Hood Fire Suppression System Features Fast Detection and Instant Activation
An automatic fire detection and suppression system that rapidly extinguishes fires inside of fume hoods, cupboards, and cabinets where a flare-up may originate is available from Firetrace International of Scottsdale, Arizona.
Firetrace Fume Hood Fire Suppression Systems react up to 10X faster than conventional sprinkler systems because they provide fire protection at all major points of air flow inside the fume cabinet. Featuring a canister of fire suppression agent and a flexible polymer detection tubing which can be routed anywhere inside the cabinet, upon exposure to a 212°F flame, the tubing ruptures and releases the fire suppressant into the fume hood.
Capable of discharging from 1 to 50 lbs. of a fire suppression agent, depending upon the system, Firetrace Fume Hood Fire Suppression Systems are totally self-contained, require no electricity or external power, but can turn-off power or signal an alarm. UL listed and FM-approved, they can be supplied with FM-200, CO2, dry chemical powders, and foam suppressants.
Firetrace Fume Hood Fire Suppression Systems are priced dependent upon canister size, type of suppression agent, and options. Literature and price quotations are available upon request.
