  • Fire technology
    new concepts rather relying on old and trusted concepts In some instances it is just a case of manpower to re write these standards Traditional control valves on water based fire systems have changed dramatically from the old mechanical valves to valves that are more reliable are more easily controlled by electronic hydraulic and pneumatic controllers and provide better means for remote control and signalling Again some of these valves are still not accepted by regulators even though they have been proven to be more efficient and adaptable Foam based systems have been engineered to provide better equipment to deliver the foam to the fire and the foam solutions have been developed to more efficiently spread and retain their consistency to provide better coverage Traditionally foam was generated mechanically and many still do but a number of foams are now synthetic chemical foam solutions Powder based extinguishing systems have also evolved through fire engineering technology The powders that were very generic in past years are now more specific in their design to deal with particular hazards Gaseous fire extinguishing systems have evolved on a number of fronts The traditional carbon dioxide fire systems are now under threat from an environmental perspective Various very efficient gases were introduced years ago but were found to be detrimental to the ozone layer New gases had to be engineered to replace the halogens that were very efficient not only in the way they interacted with fire but also because they required less volume The newer gases invariably require more volume to do the same job however fire engineering technology has changed the type of installation to a more modular system which reduces the gas volume required Other research is taking place where the oxygen level is reduced to extinguish the fire but still at an adequate level to sustain life to facilitate evacuation of the occupants The above is a very brief look at some of the developments it is impossible to address all developments on fire extinguishing systems Fire Engineering A bit of history regarding fire engineering and protection Originally fire services were provided by insurance companies and or volunteers from the community In the case of insurance companies they maintained a fire service that only protected the paying customers All others had to depend on the local community to assist them These days fire services are provided by municipalities using professional retained or volunteer fire fighters There are fire regulations stipulating minimum fire safety requirements administered by the local authority The sheer volume of new commercial facilities industrial plants residential complexes and public buildings that are developed and constructed on a daily basis makes it difficult to control compliance to fire regulations It is therefore the owners or developers who are charged with insuring that fire safety is incorporated in the building construction Fire regulations take time to evolve and to keep current with technological advances in building construction The original concept was a deemed to satisfy rule which implies that whatever

  • Fire system design
    to the fire installation companies However technology has advanced and nozzles valves piping chemical additives fire resistant materials etc have been researched and tested for use in the fire industry Water flow rates and droplet size has changed the way that fires can be extinguished Gases such as Halons were banned for use and carbon dioxide has come under scrutiny The above is an installation on a mine in Zambia where the use of modern spray nozzles gives a fine spray droplet size which uses less water but is more effective than old water spray nozzles The above demonstrates the water droplet size difference with a coarse spray followed by a fine spray followed by almost an atomized spray pattern The finer spray patterns use less water therefore costs are saved because pump sizes can be reduced pipe sizes can be reduced and water storage capacity can be reduced All of these cost savings are to the benefit of the client This is not always practical and should be carefully considered for the environment where the installation operates however the function of the fire designer is to provide the most effective performance and the most cost effective fire system This
