Data Centres protection

Data Centres protection

Data processing centres (DPCs) are strategic points in any organization. In them is stored all the information, one of the greatest assets of any company. 

In case of fire, losses are measured not only by the material value of the equipment, but the problem is significantly greater when the chain reaction that occurs is taken into account: loss of stored information, often irrecoverable; expenses derived from loss of productive time where normal business is impossible due to data unavailability; and even losses incurred as a result of time spent on reacquiring lost information.

There are two aspects of this protection to consider: 

Protection of equipment and the information it contains. Protection of any people that may be on the premises

Turbines and Generators Protection

Turbines and Generators Protection

Protecting these very expensive devices with effective fire protection measures is critical. An uncontrolled fire has serious consequences, not only for its economic value but also in terms of shutdowns in production. 

The protection of this hazard or the room where it is located is a complex issue to be studied carefully because of the diversity of existing turbines with very different characteristics. The wide range of sizes and operating circumstances pose very different protection challenges. 

Fire hot spots vary depending on the type of turbine in question (gas, steam, water, etc.). First, the potential fire hot spots should be identified in order to choose the most appropriate extinguishing system. This is why under certain circumstances we will protect the cooling oil tank, at other times the interior of the chimney through which gases generated are vented or key turbine parts, and in some cases the entire turbine, flooding the entire room housing it.

Industrial Kitchens protection

Industrial Kitchens protection

Kitchens are rooms where an outbreak of fire can occur quite easily. Since food preparation involves, in large part, the use of equipment capable of releasing a lot of heat and even flames—in the case of gas burners—kitchens are considered high-risk enclosures.  This may affect the enclosure or, if the fire spreads, the entire building. 

Installing fire protection equipment is therefore advisable, especially for medium power and above, to protect the hazard elements in the kitchen and extraction ducts.

Some kitchen elements pose electrical hazards and release high temperatures. Hot oil in fryers also poses a hazard, as does the accumulation of grease in ovens, filters and ducts.

Road Tunnels Protection

The exponential growth in the number of vehicles each year, as well as the various types of loads in heavy goods vehicles, increase the risk of accidents in these areas.

In recent years the accident rate has shot up, which calls for greater awareness in the need for increased protection. Traditional smoke control measures and ventilation systems that improve the evacuation of those involved can be enhanced with this new firefighting technology. It not only reduces smoke but allows fire control to minimize hazards.

Electrical Panels Protection

Electrical Panels Protection

Electrical panel rooms house the electrical and automation systems for factories, businesses and large retail centres. It is one of the key areas for companies’ production. 

Electricity is a major fire hazard. A simple short circuit can cause large fires if it is not controlled in time. Uninterrupted protection must be ensured since a fire here would mean the failure of all systems, resulting in dramatic consequences. Without an adequate fire protection system in place, a fire could spread quickly to other areas and increase damages exponentially. 

The internal factors which often carry higher risk are very difficult to control. The most common are: false floors and ceilings without maintenance, sparks from switches, short circuits, overloads, static electricity, etc. Other factors which are rarely taken into account and yet are major hazards include, for example, small debris inside units, environmental temperature conditions and even maintenance activities resulting in altered operation of devices and thus involving increased risk. It is therefore very important to have fixed extinguishing systems that act early at the first sign of fire so that it does not spread.

The following considerations for protection must be taken into account:

Extinction by total flooding Possibility of backup systems depending on the protocol Ability to protect several independent spaces

Oil and Gas industry protection

Oil and Gas industry protection

The high combustibility of oil & gas is a well known fact. To the risk of fire we must add the risk of explosion due to the possible presence of explosive atmospheres in the various activity-related complexes, such as: drills, pumping equipment, and waste evaporation pits, storage tanks, coal bed methane and component installations, shale gas, treatment plants, etc.

Special attention is given to the protection of extraction elements and storage tanks.

Due to the risk of fire and explosion in this industry, the protection ofareas with high fire probability is equally important. This can includetransformers, generators, electrical rooms, etc. Where the fire can be triggered and spread to other major areas.

Transformers Protection

Transformers Protection

The importance of protecting transformer rooms against possible fires is obvious. It not only protects this valuable equipment but it also provides safety for uninterrupted use. The operational shutdown of this equipment leads to serious consequences and losses such as: power outages in large urban areas, power cuts at public facilities such as hospitals and supermarkets, production losses in businesses or whole industrial estates.

To all this must be added the losses incurred in restarting all the affected systems and the time invested. This is why the use of automatic fire protection systems is essential. Siex boasts the most advanced means for the protection of these facilities and equipment in order to ensure the necessary safety.

Offshore Platforms Protection
Catalogue

Offshore Platforms Protection

The off-shore platforms are mainly dedicated to oil and gas extraction. These offshore platforms have all the systems required to undertake this work and to accommodate its employees in good living conditions. Being at sea, they should operate as independently as possible from the coast, so they contain complex facilities for generating electricity and storing fuel.

Proper fire protection is very important in these spaces because the facilities are very expensive and evacuating personnel in the event of a fire can prove very difficult. The offshore location makes it very difficult for external extinction means to access it, so the oil rig should be properly designed to prevent potential hazards and be able to extinguish any fire outbreak with available resources. The way of installing the extinguishing media must also be examined in order to save the maximum amount of space occupied by them.

The main areas to be protected on a platform with automatic extinguishing are: diesel generators, technical rooms, computer rooms, paint rooms, workshops, diesel storage tanks, oil tanks, electrical panel rooms, electrical transformers, control rooms, battery rooms, refrigeration rooms and high or low voltage rooms. All these places are an important source of possible fires that can severely damage the platform.

Natural Gas Protection

Natural Gas Protection

A Natural Gas plant is an installation of great economic value and high fire risk due to the materials being processed there and its easy combustion. The main area of risk is the gas storage area, which consists of insulated tanks at a temperature below its boiling point of -164 °C. Is essential to avoid the risk of accidents to protect the plant facilities and employees. 

There are other hazard areas in the plant such as control rooms, storage areas, fuel tanks, electrical equipment, generators and pumps, truck loading and unloading areas, etc. All of these areas should be considered as hazard areas, since a fire in any of these places without adequate protection could spread to the tanks and increase the hazards. 

Natural gas plants must comply with current regulations such as NFPA 59A, "Standard for the production, storage and handling of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)" where fire protection measures are stipulated.

Protection In Flammable Liquid Stores

Protection In Flammable Liquid Stores

These are places locating products, with the following characteristics: Flammable Liquid. A flammable liquid is defined as one with a flashpoint of less than 37.8 °C and a vapour pressure (absolute) not exceeding 2.8 bar at 37.8 °C. Among others: gasoline, kerosene, ethyl alcohol, etc. The lower the flash point, the higher the risk of the flammable liquid in question.

These products are stored in different types of storage solutions—drums or tanks—depending on the location, size and type of product. Flammable liquids may even be stored inside buildings primarily used for something else or in buildings used exclusively for this purpose.

The hazards inherent to these flammable products are as follows:

  • Burn easily.
  • Explosive atmospheres are more likely to occur when there is inadequate ventilation.Possibility of spills, creating a risk of fast-spreading. In fact, even splashing and overflows may occur.
  • This produces hazards that are difficult to control and/or contain. This requires full protection of the enclosure, avoiding the spread to other areas as much as possible.
