Fire Solutions in Marine Vehicles
Today, the sea road is used as often as the road. Therefore, natural disasters are frequently encountered in the sea. Fires, on the other hand, are among the most common natural disasters in watercraft. All necessary precautions against fire, which is one of the most dangerous situations that may be encountered by sea vessels navigating at sea, must be taken and fully fulfilled. In addition, ship and boat personnel should have knowledge of equipment and fire. Especially boats made of wood and fiber carry a much greater risk of fire. In case of fire in such boats, the fire is extinguished very difficult. Therefore, it would be much better to take early precautions about fire.
Fire Installations in Marine Vehicles
Various fire installations are required in the watercraft. One of these installations is sea water fire installation. This installation should be on every ship; fire pumps, taps, fire circuits, nozzles, emergency sea water pump and emergency generator.
The chemical fire installation is another installation that should be present in the watercraft. The chemical extinguishers in this installation include portable and stationary extinguishers. Another fire installation is a gas fire extinguishing installation. It is very effective with the gas used to extinguish fires on ships. Gas extinguishing systems are often preferred as water extinguishing will take a long time.
How to Prevent Fire in Marine Vehicles?
Electricity and electric heaters are the most important issues in watercraft. Especially in winter months, because of the cold boats and ships are often used heater. However, these heaters can tip over with a sudden movement and cause fires. In terms of electricity, low voltage electricity should be used in marine vehicles. However, the use of low voltage can cause cables to heat up and cause a fire. The electrical cables must therefore be checked. In addition, it must be controlled in gas systems in marine vehicles. In the event of any leakage, the risk of fire is very high. For this reason, maintenance of gaseous systems needs to be done regularly.
Automatic or manual system gas (aerosol, fm200, co2, novec, argon, etc.) extinguishing systems, sea water installation systems, portable fire extinguishing equipment, dry chemical powdered installation systems are our solutions.
