Petrochemical Fire Fighting Systems
Petrochemical facilities require the protection of high performance water flow equipment and systems in order to prevent a catastrophic loss of people, facilities and equipment. Some of the biggest safety challenges facing the operation of refineries or petrochemical facilities are controlling toxic or corrosive vapor cloud releases, suppression of hydrocarbon fires, and the protection and cooling of structures or other exposures. Manual and remote controlled monitor (water cannon) systems provide a solution by using directed, large flow streams. There are many benefits to installing petrochemical fire fighting systems in your facilities.
Benefits of a Manual or Remote Controlled Monitor Systems:
- Remote controlled monitors allow fires or vapor releases to be managed from a safe distance; minimizing exposure to personnel
- Gets water on the fire immediately
- Reduced staffing in plants due to advanced automation results in fewer employees available for the fire brigades
