When security requires reliability and strength, Fire Kloud is the answer
Fire protection in the railway sector in recent years has seen a constant and growing demand for automatic fire suppression systems, which, in order to meet regulations or technical/economic requirements, protect railway vehicles against the high damage and technical downtime resulting from a fire. Most railway fires occur in switchboards and control units, diesel engine rooms, hydraulic power units, drive and braking mechanisms. All these components ensure the functionality of the vehicle, but at the same time present a high potential fire risk.
A vehicle on rails is typically subject to constant vibrations, sudden changes in humidity and temperature, limited installation space and workplaces that are complicated to handle with conventional fire protection systems. The fire protection of these spaces therefore requires the use of cutting-edge technology capable of combining aspects of reliability, strength and compactness of the system.
Fire Kloud’s highly advanced fire protection technology is the most suitable solution for the rolling stock industry because the system is effective, compact and cost-efficient. A Fire Kloud unit consists of an extremely robust, modular steel generator capable of resisting harsh and corrosive environments. The straightforward, compact design allows installations in tight spaces and low maintenance, reducing recurring operating costs.
Fire Kloud condensed aerosol extinguishing systems automatically release ultra-fine particles of potassium salts and inert gases that quickly and effectively extinguish fires without damaging electrical equipment.
Fire Kloud can protect all high-risk component areas of locomotives and rail vehicles, including engine compartments, oil filter units, battery compartments and all electrical cabinets.
