Energy; It is one of the most important sources in terms of sustainability of human life. The energy used every minute for the continuity of life and productive life makes many positive contributions to human life. In addition to its positive contributions, energy, which carries great risks, paves the way for unintended accidents, especially if measures are not taken in power generation plants.
Energy production facilities; fire and similar disasters. The use of both fossil and other types of fuels in these areas paves the way for the emergence of great energy. Effective fire extinguishing systems must be installed in case of a fire that may spread in a short time after energy leakage or ignition of flammable materials. Otherwise, the fire will become uncontrollable.
Fire Systems in Energy Plants
The fire systems to be installed in the energy facilities need to be very well designed. In case of deficiencies in project and planning, there may be huge fires and subsequent losses. It is possible to list the fire systems recommended for use in energy plants as follows.
Fire Prevention Systems
Fire prevention systems; aims to prevent possible fires by reducing flammable substances in the air to a certain level. The most important aspect of this system is that it reduces the probability of fire to zero when activated. Fire prevention systems, which are seen as protective measures rather than a solution, must be tested in power plants.
Gas Based Suppression Systems
Although it is seen as a different version of fire prevention systems, the gas-based suppression systems, which are actually used to minimize the effects of fire, eliminate harmful particles in the air at the time of fire. Improves air quality thanks to absorbing system.
Spark Extinguishing Systems
This system, which immediately detects sparks when electrical contact or leakage is encountered, solves the problem at its source. Thanks to this system, the growth of the fire is not possible.
Importance of Fire Systems in Energy Plants
It is very important to prevent fires that will waste energy in an environment where the need for energy is increasing and people’s dependence on energy is increasing. In addition, the necessary systems must be installed to prevent fires in energy enterprises that trigger the loss of life and property.
Detection systems are integrated with gas (aerosol, fm200, co2, novec, argon, etc.) extinguishing systems and foam extinguishing systems solutions are available.
Spark extinguishing systems and quick response solutions are available.
