Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems

Production line shutdowns due to a fire can be very costly. With a dry chemical fire suppression system, the fire can rapidly be detected, extinguished, and resume with less downtime.


There are several different technologies to protect a fire.

  • Electrical thermal detectors
  • Flame detectors such as UV or IR detectors
  • Linear heat strips
  • Mechanical fusible links (Most Popular)
  • Pneumatic fire detection loops

Types of Equipment Protected

The agents or chemical most commonly employed are ABC and BC types of powder. These are highly effective fire fighting agents that suppress the fire by coating the surface of the combustible material.

Hazards Protected

  • Coating equipment
  • Dip tanks
  • Exhaust ducts
  • Flammable liquid storage areas
  • Mechanical room
  • Paint booths
  • Quench tanks
