      * Listed with Active Fire for the Fire Protection of Mobile and Transportable Equipment

      * Infinity Fire Protection Pty Ltd is an Authorised Reseller, Distributor and Integration Partner for the STRYKER FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM

Fire Risk Management:

      * Complete Risk Management is carried out for each project so that all fire hazards and safety requirements are addressed


Foam Fire Suppression System Description:

The main components and general arrangement of a STRYKER Loss of Pressure (LOP) Foam Fire System are shown below.

Components include, but are not limited to, foam and containment cylinders, LOP detection tubing, foam distribution system complete with nozzles, manual actuators and main and mimic control panels.

Individual components are described in greater detail below:

FOAM:

      * Masterfoam AFFF (6% concentrate) is used and it produces a stable foam blanket for fire suppression and vapour control

      * The foam steadily releases water to cool hot fuels and surfaces

FOAM CONTAINMENT CYLINDER:

      * Five Standard Containment Cylinder Sizes available – 23, 30, 45, 65, 106 Litres or multiples of to ensure the required discharge time and coverage is achieved

CYLINDER DISCHARGE VALVE:

      * Automatically releases foam upon loss of pressure (LOP) within the discharge tubing

      * The foam release allows total flooding of engine spaces and/or local area

      * Operates via LOP or via Manual Actuator

MANUAL ACTUATOR:

      * The STRYKER Loss of Pressure (LOP) Foam Fire Suppression System can be activated by Manual Actuators

      * Manual Actuators are normally installed in the following locations:

      * Operators Cabin

      * External / easily accessible point on the machine

      * As per Risk Assessment Outcome

FOAM NOZZLES:

      * Nozzles are installed in accordance with the Risk Assessment and applicable Australian Standards

      * Nozzles can be supplied in both Foil & Cap and Lanyard Type

DETECTION TUBING:

      * The detection tubing automatically detects a fire condition and bursts causing a drop in system pressure, automatically activating discharge of the Foam System

      * Detection tubing is installed to cover all fire risks as per the risk assessment

PRESSURE SWITCH:

      * Two pressure switches are installed in the STRYKER Loss of Pressure (LOP) Foam Fire Suppression System

      * One monitoring the pressure in the Foam Containment Cylinder and the other switch monitors system discharge

      * Upon activation the switches send an alarm to the Systems Main Control Panel and to the Operators Mimic/Remote Indication Panel

MAIN AND MIMIC PANEL (CONTROLLER):

      * The STRYKER Loss of Pressure (LOP) Foam Fire Suppression System requires no electronics to discharge Foam in the event of a fire

      * The main purpose of the Main Controller is to start the shutdown of the machines/equipment’s engine

      * The Controller has been designed to comply with AS5062-2006

      * All equipment has been tested by an accredited NATA Laboratory to comply with the electromagnetic compatibility Standards of AS/NZS 61000.6.2 and AS/NZS 61000.6.3

FOAM FIRE SYSTEM OPERATION:

      * Automatically when Fire ruptures the Detection Tube

      * Manually in the event of a Fire by an operator via the Manual Activation Valve

FOAM FIRE SYSTEM MAINTENANCE & REPAIRS:

      * Strong recommendation that approved personnel only undertake maintenance on this Specialised System

      * Infinity Fire Protection can provide this maintenance service 24 hours a day – 365 days per annum
