Fire Detection Solutions for the Power Generation Industry
A cable tray fire, however small, can cause extensive interruption and damage to building structures, processes and subsequent consequential loss. However, one cable tunnel fire protection method is to use Patol Linear Heat Detection Cable (LHDC) systems to detect the outbreak of fire before there is any damage to property or equipment.
Typically, cable tunnels, risers and flats use multi-level cable trays / ladder racking for cable containment.
Our Complete Fire Detection Solution
LHDC may be economically applied to monitor above each level, using heat sensing technology to provide rapid detection of overheating cables caused by electrical malfunctions or external conditions.
Our Linear Heat Detection Systems are available with zonal monitors providing distance location or monitored operating signals for sprinklers fitted with single shot metron actuators or zonal valves.
With this combination of early detection and sprinkler operation, fires can be controlled and extinguished with little or no damage to cables. Patol Linear Heat Detection Cable has been proved to respond to a small fire within seconds and repeatedly tested to be less than one minute using a standard crib fire.
Types of LHDC available include:
- Resettable LHDC (Analogue)
- Non-resettable LHDC (Digital)
