New 12 Liter Cylinder Protects Large Vehicle Engines from Fire

With the recent introduction of a new 12-liter cylinder, FireDETEC makes it easy for manufacturers and vehicle operators to protect engines of all sizes.
New 12 Liter Cylinder Protects Large Vehicle Engines from Fire

The FireDETEC 7 liter cylinder protects small and medium size engines, while the 12 liter cylinder is designed for large engines.

The benefits of the 12-liter cylinder are evident. It’s…

  • More space efficient
  • Easier to install
  • More economical

But there’s more. The 12-liter cylinder has achieved SP approval, which means it has been proven effective in the harshest of conditions.

These new cylinders are built with all the unique advantages that help make the FireDETEC automatic fire suppression system for vehicle engines the choice of many leading companies worldwide. First, the pressurized compartment is in an inner chamber. This makes the cylinder more impact resistant since it is extremely difficult for the system to be pressurized in a collision. Second, a piston in combination with a built-in pressure regulator ensures it achieves a constant discharge pressure. This results in more prolonged action that helps prevent re-ignition. Third, the cylinder can be conveniently mounted either vertically or horizontally.

Even with more suppression agent to discharge, the FireDETEC vehicle engine system works extremely fast – suppressing a fire before it endangers passengers or causes serious damage. Flexible sensor tubing that conforms to any engine configuration is connected directly to the cylinder. Fire is detected quickly and an alarm alerts the driver.

Now, with the new 12-liter cylinder from FireDETEC, it’s possible to safely protect large vehicles more economically and effectively than ever before.
