Flame detector sensors report the presence of visible fires within a protected area. Smoke detectors respondto the combustion products emitted by burning materials. Heat Detectors respond to excessively high temperatures in the protected area, which are presumed to be the result of a fire in the area. Fire Standards require the use of Manual Alarm Stations in all areas occupied by people.
A combustible gas is any gas that will burn. Mixtures of combustible gases with air, when ignited, produce an explosion. Use a combustible gas sensor to insure that the percentage of gas in the air can never get high enough for the mixture to burn. When gas is sensed, try to replace the gas/air mixture with fresh air. If this cannot be accomplished, then shut down all equipment and evacuate all personnel from the area. Use these sensors to check for methane (natural gas), propane, butane, ethane, pentane, LNG, LPG, hydrogen and other combustible gases. Specific models include methane gas detectors, hydrogen gas detectors, propane gas detectors, butane gas detectors, toluene gas detectors, hexane gas detectors, and others.
Installation and Calibration Accessories include junction boxes for mounting sensors on walls, ceilings or air ducts. Additional accessories available to protect sensors from water or dust, and test gas for verifying sensor performance.

A toxic gas is any gas that, when inhaled, will produce some adverse effect on the person or animal. Toxic gases in large concentrations can produce unconsciousness or death by displacing the oxygen in breathable air. Many toxic gases, even in very low concentrations breathed over a long time period can cause cancer or otherwise permanently damage the lungs. Toxic gas sensors insure that no personnel are injured or killed by toxic leak accidents. Use these sensors to check for H2S, SO2, CO, CO2, CL2, NO2, and other toxic gasses. Specific gas detector models include H2S gas detectors, sulfur dioxide gas detector, carbon monoxide gas detector, ammonia gas detector, chlorine gas detector, nitric oxide gas detector, and others.

The air we breathe is a mixture of many gases. Approximately 20.9% of the earth’s air is oxygen. Air that is “deficient” of oxygen is a threat to life, leading to unconsciousness and death. In industrial locations where nitrogen or other inert gases are in use, a gas leak could go undetected, and the resulting displacement of oxygen from the air would result in death. Use an oxygen detector to alert personnel of an oxygen deficiency in the air.
In areas where pure oxygen is in use, an oxygen leak is equally dangerous. As the percentage of oxygen in air increases above the normal 20.9%, the air is said to be “enriched”. Oxygen enrichment causes a fire to burn more readily than normal, causing many materials to burn with almost explosive force. Use an oxygen senor to alert personnel of extreme fire danger.
Installation and Calibration Accessories include junction boxes for mounting sensors on walls, ceilings or air ducts. Also accessories to protect sensors from water or dust, and test gas for verifying sensor performance.
The Alarm Control Panel receives electrical signals from the various fire detectors and gas sensors located through out the protected area. The control panel displays the status of each connected detector or sensor, reporting alarm conditions and measured gas concentrations. The control panel also reports any detector/sensor device that is not working properly, so that maintenance personnel may be dispatched to repair the device.
The Kidde AEGIS is the technologically most advanced Conventional Single Hazard Agent Releasing Unit available to the Fire-Alarm Suppression industry today. It combines the high quality, system reliability, and flexibility required by modern commercial, high-tech and industrial applications in an aesthetically pleasing and physically robust package.
The ARIES NETLink™ is one of the most technologically advanced intelligent fire alarm-suppression-focused control units available to the industry today. It combines the high quality, system reliability, and flexibility required by modern commercial, high-tech and industrial applications in an aesthetically pleasing and physically robust package. Its modular architecture enables easy field expansion from the base 2-SLC unit that supports 510 addressable devices (255 per circuit) to an 8-SLC system capable of 2,040 addressable devices. Despite its compact fit-between-wall-studs dimensions, the ARIES NETLink is designed to be quick and easy to install. Cutting edge technologies incorporated in the electronics design enable diagnostics for time-efficient commissioning.
NOVA-5000 Detection and Control System is customized for each installation by selecting from a number of different control modules to perform the required functions. The selected assortment of modules plug into one or more racks, which interconnect the modules to perform the required protection functions. NOVA-5000 Detection and Control System is an overview of the entire system and details some of the many functions available by selecting the various available modules.
VulcanConnect is SST’s plug-and-play WiFi-based networking platform. The system enables users to transform nearly any sensor into a wireless node that can be remotely monitored with zero programming and network configuration.
For hazardous locations these include bells, horns, hooters, sirens, and strobe lights for installation in areas where gases or flammable vapors can accumulate. These devices are rated explosion proof or intrinsically save. For non-hazardous locations these include bells, horns, hooters, sirens, and strobe lights for installation in general purpose areas where only common combustible materials are present.
Upon detection of a fire and alerting of personnel, the fire must be extinguished. Today’s clean agents are formulated to not only produce the desired extinguishing characteristics, but also to minimize the long term effects that any of these agents have on the environment when released. Regardless of any automatic equipment installed, standards also require hand portable extinguishers for use by occupants of protected areas.
Upon detection of a fire and alerting of personnel, the fire must be extinguished. Water is the traditional extinguishing agent, but in many of today’s installation, water damage may be worse than the damage caused by the fire. In those cases, release of a gaseous extinguishing agent in the hazard area, which leaves little residue and cleanup, is more desirable. Today’s agents are formulated to not only produce the desired extinguishing characteristics, but also to minimize the long term effects that any of these agents have on the environment when released. These agents are referred to as “Clean Agents”, to distinguish them from Halon, which was used for years but later found to be causing global warming.
