Fire Suppression Systems for wind turbines
Discover the benefits of our aerosol extinguishing systems
Fire protection for wind turbines
Our innovative aerosol fire suppression systems and automatic fire extinguishers are perfect for use in wind turbines. Whether protecting electrical systems, generators or entire turbines. Our systems extinguish quickly and extremely effectively and do not cause damage to the machines and other components. The extinguishing process only takes a few seconds. As a result, fires can be extinguished directly at the source and major material damage can be prevented. Because our aerosol generators are not pressurized and have no moving parts, they are easy to install and low maintenance.
Due to the long operating time of the aerosols, a possible re-ignition is prevented. Our extinguishing generators have proven themselves for many years and offer reliable protection against fires of class A, B, C and F. Unlike gas extinguishing systems, complex installation and maintenance work is no longer necessary. Retrofitting is possible without any problems; our systems do not have to be taken into account when planning the system. Our extremely compact extinguishers can also be accommodated in very narrow machine- and technical spaces and only need to be wired. No piping is required. For fire detection, we can fall back on all components of technical fire protection. Whether smoke or temperature detectors and/or manual activation, everything is possible.
We have already equipped many windmills and wind turbines in Europe and abroad with our RSL Fire aerosol fire suppression systems. Contact us for more information.
The RSL Fire aerosol fire suppression systems are the only aerosol systems certified by Europe’s number one for fire protection: VdS
Advantages of our Aerosol Fire Suppression Systems
How does aerosol work as extinguishing agent?
The fire is recognized by means of a fire detector, electrical ignition or fully autonomous analog ignition. Our Aerosol generator generates the aerosol and an endothermic reaction converts potassium hydrogen carbonate into potassium carbonate, chemically removing oxidizing substances from the combustion process and extinguishing the fire. At the same time, additional heat is extracted from the combustion process. This way the fire is extinguished in two ways and the chance of re-ignition is considerably reduced. During the extinguishing process, no oxygen is extracted and the residual potassium carbonate product is environmentally friendly and easy to clean up.
