BS 7 Press Protection
Through the integration of the extinguishing events, registered by the spark extinguishing system, in the total press protection concept, necessary extinguishing measures can be taken quickly. The integration of spark detection in the exhaust pipes of the press inlet and/or outlet makes an early fire detection possible, as it has not yet been realised on the market.
The operators of hot presses with spark detection in the exhaust pipes report that sparks are detected only minutes before the fire detection is activated. Fire events are smaller resulting in the use of lower quantities of extinguishing water. Less extinguishing water means shorter standstill times after a successful extinguishment. With the GreCon central fire alarm system - which is approved by VdS - with integrated extinguishment function it is possible to activate press extinguishing measures manually or automatically.
