Deluge System

Deluge System

Deluge systems are used to quickly deliver large volumes of water to extinguish a fire. They are fixed fire protection systems where the water pipe is empty until the deluge valve opens. Water is then simultaneously distributed from open nozzles.

Deluge systems outperform sprinkler systems in areas where fire can spread rapidly. Common areas of application are dust collectors, silos, conveyors and pits.

Activation

Heat, flame and smoke detection can be used to activate deluge systems.  The detection can also be double interlocked so a single point of failure will not activate the deluge valve.

In addition to automatic detection, each deluge valve can be manually released.  Electrical push button release stations are also available for remote operation.

Nozzles

A variety of nozzles can be selected based on the application including conical, self-closing and sidewall nozzles.  The size of the valve assembly as well as the quantity, placement and required flow of nozzles are selected to meet the requirements of the applications.

Supervision & Monitoring

The FLAMEX Control Panel monitors deluge valve assemblies.  The system monitors water flow, standby pressure and all gate valves.  Remote alarms can be used with the system to alert personnel of any activation or condition.

Common areas of application are dust collectors, silos, conveyors and pits.
