HOW PAFSS® WORKS

Jactone PAFSS fire suppression systems are self-activiting and require no external power for detection or operation making them ideal for unmanned or unsupervised applications.

Principles of Operation

At the heart of any PAFSS system is the special detection tubing which acts as a linear heat and flame detector. PAFSS detection tubing is completely flexible and is installed throughout the risk areas of the enclosure, providing fast and effective detection.

Upon flame impingement or high ambient temperature, the pressurised detection tube ruptures with a burst at the hottest point and by depressurisation the cylinder valve is activated. The extinguishing agent is then discharged from the connected cylinder through either the burst hole (Direct) or pipework (Indirect) at the heart of the fire.


Features

Choosing PAFSS fire suppression systems has many advantages including:

  • Simple to install and cost effective to maintain.
  • Fast, automatic detection and extinguishing.
  • Linear detection tube giving increased responsiveness.
  • Detection tube is located where the fire risks are.
  • Detection tube is unaffected by dirt, dust, debris and oil.
  • Operated by pneumatic signal.
  • Requires no associated mechanical operation.
  • No external electrical power supply required.
  • Remain operational during a power interruption.
  • Stainless steel discharge pipework and nozzles.
  • Reliable, vibration resistant push-fit detection tube fittings.
  • Superbly engineered specialist valves and pressure vessels.


PAFSS® System Selection

PAFSS is available in two different systems, direct systems and indirect systems. Direct systems both detect and discharge via the PAFSS detection tubing whereas indirect systems detect fire via the detection tubing but discharge via stainless pipework and nozzles.


Direct PAFSS Fire Suppression System

Direct Systems

Jactone Direct PAFSS are efficient and simple self-activating systems for small enclosed hazard areas. They are failsafe against malfunction.

Upon flame impingement or heat, the pressurised detection tube ruptures with a burst at the hottest point. The agent is then discharged through the burst hole directly at the heart of the fire.

Direct systems are available in low pressure and high pressure format, depending on the most appropriate extinguishant selected.


Indirect PAFSS Fire Suppression System

Indirect Systems

Jactone Indirect PAFSS are efficient and simple self-activating systems for larger enclosed and even open hazard areas.

Upon flame impingement or heat, the pressurised detection tube will burst and by depressurisation will activate the cylinder valve to open. The agent is then released through separate pipework and nozzles which are aiming at the hazard area.

Indirect systems are available in low pressure and high pressure format, depending on the most appropriate extinguishant selected.
