All ATEX Suppressors are addressable devices with advanced monitoring techniques. While some systems still use old series wired supervision the ATEX addressable system provides distinct functional benefits.
Each sensor is interrogated independently for pressure, Lock Status, Computer Integrity, Voltage Supply, Capacitor Firing Current and Gas Generator Integrity. In additional if a fault occurs
the ATEX APLOG software allows the user to interrogate each suppressor for all of the above readings.
All suppressors offer the exclusive ATEX reusable valve system. Refurbishment requires New Chemical, Gas Generators, New “O” Rings and a Teflon Disk. Expensive Rupture Disks are not required. And with the pre-measured agent packages reconditioning can be done easily by plant personnel.
Dry Chemical (Powder) Suppression DCS
ATEX Dry Chemical Suppressors provided in 4, 20 and 35 Liter sizes store the Dry Chemical and are super pressurized to 900 psi with Dry Nitrogen.
Hot Water Suppressors
ATEX Hot Water Suppressors were specifically designed for the Dairy Drying Industry. With water stored in a temperature and pressure controlled unit, it provides a unique advantage in larger vessels. Before the advent of HWS DCS were used on these vessels. But the DCS had two major drawbacks discharge distance as they were practically limited to 10 feet of throw as the discharge velocity was constantly decreasing after release from the suppressor. It also required a large amount of cleanup. The HWS do not have a cleanup problem. On release the Water flashes to a vapor accelerating and providing an unobstructed discharge pattern in the vessel making it ideal for the large vessel volume.
Hygienic Discharge Spreaders
ATEX flush discharge spreaders provide a sanitary process condition during normal process operations. On release the spreader penetrates into the vessel.
