The ANSUL A-101 Fire Suppression System is a pre-engineered, cartridge-operated dry chemical system with a fixed nozzle distribution network. It is approved by Factory Mutual (FM).
The system is capable of automatic detection and actuation and/or remote manual actuation. When a fire is detected, the A-101 system is actuated either manually or automatically, operating the pneumatic actuator. The pneumatic actuator ruptures a seal disc in the expellant gas cartridge. This, in turn, pressurizes and fluidizes the dry chemical extinguishing agent in the tank, ruptures the burst disc when the required pressure is reached, and propels the dry chemical through the network of distribution hose. The dry chemical is discharged through fixed nozzles and into the protected areas, suppressing the fire.
The automatic detection portion of the fire suppression system incorporates electric detection, either linear detection wire or spot detection.
In addition, Triple IR flame detectors added to the linear or thermal detection circuit can be utilized for quick fire detection response.
The fire suppression system is capable of providing local application hazard protection for mobile equipment and industrial hazards. In certain industrial hazards, total flooding can be used.
The basic system consists of: Dry Chemical Agent Storage Tank(s), Expellant Gas Cartridge, Distribution Hose and Nozzles, Manual/Automatic Actuator, Automatic Detection System, and Accessories.
