Extinguishing systems for generators and power supplies
Aerosol extinguishing systems are optimally suited for protecting generators and power supplies. Because our systems do not require external pressure vessels and pipelines, installation and construction costs are significantly lower than gas extinguishing systems or and not as destructive as sprinkler systems. The use of dry aerosol does not cause collateral damage and no oxygen is removed.
Aerosol extinguishing systems can be installed directly where the fire risk is highest; for example in the generator, emergency power supply or control cabinet. Alternatively, the entire electrical area can also be protected. The costly and space-intensive creation of separate storage spaces for gas cylinders is not necessary. It is also not necessary to make the objects gas-tight or to completely close off existing openings. Retrofitting is usually also possible without any problems. Aerosol generators are not pressurized and are purely electrically operated without pipelines. Our certified aerosol generators for server cabinets, control cabinets and technical rooms are very low maintenance and have a long service life.
Unlike CO2 systems, there is no acute choking risk when using an aerosol system. Because aerosol generators are not pressurized, there is no risk of dangerous leaks. Installed aerosol systems are easy to move or expand when the protective object is replaced or relocated.
From a single generator to a complete (emergency) power supply, the possibilities are virtually unlimited. Due to their high working pressure, gas extinguishing systems generate very high noise levels, sometimes over 120 dB. With modern hard drives and electronics, this can lead to malfunctions or even complete failure. Aerosol generators generate a maximum of 80 db.

Advantages of our Aerosol Fire Suppression Systems
How does aerosol work as extinguishing agent?
The fire is recognized by means of a fire detector, electrical ignition or fully autonomous analog ignition. Our Aerosol generator generates the aerosol and an endothermic reaction converts potassium hydrogen carbonate into potassium carbonate, chemically removing oxidizing substances from the combustion process and extinguishing the fire. At the same time, additional heat is extracted from the combustion process. For example, the fire is extinguished in two ways and the chance of re-ignition is considerably reduced. During the extinguishing process, no oxygen is extracted and the residual potassium carbonate product is environmentally friendly and easy to clean up.
