Ardent Fixed Equipment Fire Suppression Systems are designed to offer reliable, cost-effective and low-maintenance solutions for the protection for essential static equipment such as electrical panels and transformer cabinets.

Fixed equipment isn't subject to the challenging conditions that mobile plant is, with less risk of damage due to shock, vibration and temperature changes. For the protection of small, fixed equipment like electrical panels, our Pneumatic Fire Suppression Systems provide cost-effective and fit for purpose fire protection.

These systems are effective for small volumes that are well-sealed. They can flood a volume within approximately 0.5 metre radius from the tubing burst point, covering a small void effectively.

How Our Fixed Equipment Fire Suppression Systems Work

Fire Detection

Ardent Pneumatic Fire Suppression Systems operate using pneumatic tubing, which is pressurised with nitrogen and routed around the fire hazards. The pressurised tubing ruptures locally when exposed to the heat generated by a fire, resulting in a loss of pressure and allowing the suppression agent within the tank to be released.

Agent Distribution

The loss of pressure in the detection tubing initiates agent discharge. Ardent Direct fire Suppression Systems use the pressurised tubing both for fire detection and agent delivery. The suppression agent is released directly to the point of ignition to provide rapid and effective suppression of the fire in small spaces.

We also offer pneumatic Indirect Fire Suppression Systems for larger, well-sealed spaces. In indirect systems, the distribution network is composed of distribution hoses and nozzles. Following a loss of pressure in the detection tubing, the agent is discharged through the distribution network to cover the hazard area. The nozzles are strategically located to offer optimal coverage of the protected area, suppressing fires in seconds to minimise damage.

Suppression Agents

Fixed systems cover a variety of hazards, which may require different suppression agents to provide the best protection for each specific fire risk.

Our clean agent suppresses fires by removing heat to break the chemical reaction chain. The suppression agent leaves no residue, evaporating cleanly and removing the need for post-discharge clean up. Non-corrosive and non-conductive, it is the ideal solution for the protection of electrical applications such as electrical panels, data centres and transformer cabinets.

For applications where the use of a clean suppression agent isn't appropriate, our dry chemical suppression agent can be fitted. This agent offers excellent fire knock-down capabilities and is able to disperse widely and cover even the hardest-to-reach areas in the hazard area.
