Fire alarm systems generally use smoke detectors or heat detectors capable of detecting either the presence of smoke particles in an area or an increase in temperature in the area as a result of a fire condition. A heat detector monitors the ambient thermal condition in the region where the heat detector is placed. Heat detectors generally trigger an alarm signal when either the actual temperature in the area being monitored exceeds a predetermined level, or when the rate of rise of the temperature in the area exceeds a predetermined level. Some detectors used in fire alarm systems incorporate both a smoke detector capability as well as a heat detector capability. A heat detector can be included as part of a smoke detector or operate as a stand alone device. Heat detectors may use a mechanical temperature sensing element connected to a suitable switch. Such a heat detector utilizes a spring-loaded plunger that is held fast at normal room temperatures by a conductor which melts at a preselected temperature and allows the spring to return to its relaxed state, which in turn causes a switch to close and operate a remote alarm panel or system. A second type of heat detector in use is constructed using a bimetallic switch.
 
The primary function of any Fire Detection and Alarm system is for notification and evacuation of personnel.

A building or local fire alarm system provides audible and/or visible alarm signals as the result of the manual operation of a fire alarm pull-station, the automatic operation of a fire detector, such as a smoke or heat detector, or the automatic operation of protective equipment, such as a sprinkler system. Various factors such as local codes, building size, and occupancy class will affect the requirements for these systems.

The importance of safety from fire and its accompanying fumes is highly recognized as a life saver for occupants of any structure. How Foam Systems Work

Fire fighting foam systems suppress fire by separating the fuel from the air (oxygen). Depending on the type of foam system, this is done in several ways:

  • Foam blankets the fuel surface smothering the fire
  • The fuel is cooled by the water content of the foam
  • The foam blanket suppresses the release of flammable vapors that can mix with the air.
 
afff firefighting foam systems Aqueous Film-Forming Foams  are based on combinations of fluoro-chemical surfactants, hydrocarbon surfactants, and solvents. These agent require a very low energy input to produce a high quality fire fighting foam. Consequently, they can be applied through a wide variety of foam delivery systems. This is the choice for airports, refineries, manufacturing plants, municipal fire departments, and any other operation involving the transportation, processing, or handling of flammable liquids.
 

Mixing Foam Systems with Water

A foam system requires proportioning equipment to mix the foam with water in the required concentration. Automatic pressure balancing valves regulate the foam concentrate pressure to match the water pressure.

 

 

Varying environmental temperatures cause a bi-metallic element to snap between two bi-stable positions, which in turn causes a switch to be opened or closed as a function of the bimetallic element. A third type of heat detector includes both a fixed temperature sensor and a rate-of-rise heat sensor. In addition to the spring-loaded switch actuator, the actual physical housing of the heat detector acts pneumatically upon the switch. Thus, when a relatively rapid change in temperature occurs, the expansion of the air within the housing causes an integral bellows to expand and actuate the same switch that is used for fixed temperature applications. Another type of heat detector includes a thermistor to sense the ambient temperature. The resistance of the thermistor changes as the ambient temperature increases and decreases.
