FK-5112 Total Flooding System

System Description

The liquefied compressed gas FK-5-1-12/Novec 1230 is odorless and colorless. It is stored as a liquid and dispensed as a colorless, electrically non-conductive vapor that is clear and does not obscure view into the hazard. It leaves no residue and has a low enough toxicity to be used in populated settings at the recommended concentration. FK-5-1-12/Novec 1230 uses a combination of chemical and physical processes to extinguish a fire.

FK-5-1-12/Novec 1230 offers excellent fire protection in a wide range of applications, including sensitive electrical equipment and industrial applications involving flammable liquids. The chemical FK-5-1-12/Novec 1230 is utilized in total flooding fire suppression systems. They System are Designed as per NFPA.


Components of Pipe Network FK-5-1-12/Novec 1230 Fire Suppression Systems

Cylinder, container valve (with pilot valve, pressure indicator), dip tube, etc.

Assure one-way flow of fire suppression agent, to prevent backflow.

Connect the cylinder valve and liquid check valve.

Fitted on the manifold to relieve higher pressure.

Guide fire suppression agent into different distribution pipe networks.

Bottle, container valve, electromagnetic drive device, pressure gauge.

Assure one-way flow of starting gas, to prevent backflow.

For accumulated starting gas release so as to avoid malfunction of the system.

Fitted at the end of the pipe network to discharge fire-suppressing agent.

Control panel, smoke and heat detector, fire alarm, discharge indicator light, etc.


Working Principle

The fire extinguishing system is under automated control when the control mode selection key on the automatic fire alarm and fire extinguishing controller is set to the “auto” position. When a fire breaks out in the protective zone, the temperature and smoke detectors transmit a fire signal to the automated fire alarm and extinguishing control. Following the device’s logic analysis, it transmits a combined sound and light alert signal, as well as a linkage instruction to close the linkage device. After a brief delay, a fire extinguishing order is delivered, the beginning valve is opened to release the starting gas, and the starting gas is released via the control gas pipeline valves and container valves.
