Agent
  • Fluorine free liquid-based agent (water) with glycol-free antifreeze
  • Low freezing point
  • Ideal for engine fires – rapidly removes heat and prevents reignition
A Choice of Compact Line Cylinder Sizes
  • Only one cylinder to install
  • Operates in any position (horizontally, vertically, upside-down)
Patented Dual-Chamber Cylinder Tehchnology
  • Dual-chamber = Extinguishing liquid and pressurized gas are in separate chambers
  • When activated, the pressurized gas is released into the outer chamber forcing against a piston
  • The piston pushes the liquid out through the discharge line
  • A built-in pressure regulator ensures a constant and sustained discharge
  • Robust design to withstand vibrations
  • Superior safety and leak prevention
Certification
  • For safety, extinguishing liquid and pressurized gas are inseparate chambers
  • When activated, the pressurized gas is released into the outer chamber forcing against a piston
  • The piston pushes the liquid out through the discharge tube
  • A built-in pressure regulator ensures a constant and sustained discharge to avoid usage of chemicals
Optional: Wireless Communication
The Firedetec Difference
Rotarex FireDETEC® systems use a proprietary continuous linear sensor tube that reliably detects and actuates release of the extinguishing agent using pneumatic technology. It is more flexible, space efficient and cost effective versus alternative mechanical or electronic systems.
1. Quick & Easy installation directly inside electrical cabinets:
The flexible sensor tubing is easily installed directly above and around the engine - closer to where a fire could start. When in service, the tubing is pressurized with dry nitrogen to 16 bar. The dynamics of pressurization make the tubing more reactive to heat.

2. Early fire detection:
If a fire occurs, the heat of the fire causes the pressurized sensor tube to burst at the hottest spot (approx. 110°C)


3. Instant suppression:
The sudden tube depressurization actuates the special pressure differential valve and instantly floods the entire engine compartment extinguishing agent. The fire is quickly suppressed just moments after it began... minimizing damage and downtime.
