Jactone PAFSS® Fire Suppression Systems

Automatic, fast acting and effective fire suppression systems


Protect your assets against fire with PAFSS® fire suppression

There are many situations where dealing with a fire at its source will both minimise the damage to valuable assets and enable a quicker recovery of operations. It is for these situations that we developed Jactone PAFSS automatic fire suppression systems.

PAFSS (Pneumatically Actuated Fire Suppression Systems) detect automatically at the source of a fire and extinguish it early and before it can develop further and spread, minimising the damage to assets and enabling a quicker recovery of operations.

The range of PAFSS systems builds on years of experience and technical knowledge acquired in the fire industry.

PAFSS systems offer peace of mind for those looking to protect their assets and personnel from the risk of fire.

Why an automatic fire suppression system

There are many situations where assets and property are under threat from the risk of fire, either because of the unattended nature of their operations or simply their remote location. Unattended risks can be present in laboratory fume cupboards, electrical cabinets, automatic machinery, engines and offshore wind turbines for example.

All of these applications, along with many others, are a challenge due to the fact that human intervention in the event of a fire situation is highly unlikely or just not possible. In addition to this, the fire could be difficult to identify, for example smouldering, damaged or poorly installed wiring inside an electrical cabinet which could present a real problem.

The unattended nature of these operations means that if a fire was to develop it would be very likely that by the time flame, heat or smoke detecting devices situated outside of the fire risk became aware of the situation the fire may have spread to surrounding equipment and assets.

An automatic fire suppression system does not require human intervention to detect, suppress or extinguish a fire situation.

The PAFSS Solution

Jactone PAFSS fire suppression systems require no human intervention or electrical power for either detection or operation. This makes them ideal for unmanned or unsupervised applications.

PAFSS detection tubing is very flexible and it is installed very close to the risk areas throughout the protected application, providing fast and effective detection. Upon flame impingement or high ambient temperature, the pressurised detection tube ruptures with a burst at the hottest point. Depending on the system type (either Direct or Indirect), the pre-selected extinguishing agent is then discharged from the connected cylinder through either the burst hole directly at the heart of the fire or via separate pipework and nozzles.

Dealing with a fire situation at the source in this manner means that the fire is extinguished extremely quickly and prevents the fire from spreading to neighbouring enclosures, equipment and the wider building. This significantly reduces the risk of injury to personnel and losses caused by equipment downtime and operational disruption.

The benefits of PAFSS

PAFSS is simple to install and maintain on both new and existing equipment.

PAFSS offers a fast and automatic operation from the initial detection of a fire, through to suppressing it.

Our UL listed highly reliable detection tube remains unaffected by dirt, dust, debris and oil. Vibration resistant push-fit detection tube fittings.

The detection tubing allows for an unlimited number of fire detection points. Its flexible nature means it can be located adjacent to identified risk areas, providing fast effective detection.

The early intervention of a PAFSS system can often prevent the release of a larger room suppression system, saving on expensive refill costs.

PAFSS requires no power supply for detection or actuation, remaining operational during a power interruption.

Integral pressure switches allow remote system monitoring and initiation of safeguarding actions.

Superbly engineered specialist valves and pressure vessels. Stainless steel discharge pipework, fittings and nozzles.
