Offshore Fire Suppression

AF-X Fireblocker - Environmentally friendly fire extinguishing system

Fire Suppression systems for offshore applications

Fire in the offshore sector is predominantly difficult to extinguish and can therefore have major consequences. Not only does a fire destroy the infrastructure, but it also causes major environmental damage.

AF-X Fireblocker has worked for years on the further development of aerosol extinguishing systems together with national and international institutes. This has resulted in a very powerful, environmentally friendly and safe extinguishing system that is extremely suitable for the petrochemical and offshore industry.

Fire Extinguishing System

When it comes to safety standards, the offshore industry leads the way. In no other industry can a fire have so many consequences for the company, the people who work on site and the environment. 

There are various reasons why a company chooses a Offshore fire suppression system with AF-X Fireblocker. Sometimes it is simply the lower cost compared to other systems. However, it is often other reasons such as the compactness of the system. It takes up virtually no space. The much lighter weight compared to the other available systems also plays a role. But especially the minimal consequential damage that our extinguishing system has are often decisive. The AF-X Fireblocker make a direct contribution to better environmental management and simply offer the safest solution.


The Secret of Success of Offshore fire suppression

The AF-X Fireblocker fire extinguishing systems do not work on the basis of a gas or a liquid, but on the basis of a solid bound compound. This means that we can make our fire extinguishing systems in the size that they are suitable for any space. They even can be placed directly in machines and equipment, near possible sources of fire.

NO oxygen expulsion

When extinguishing with a gas or CO2, the oxygen present in a room is reduced or completely expelled. During extinguishing with the AF-X Fireblocker system, the oxygen is not removed due to its unique effect, but is secured in new stable compounds. Extinguishing with an aerosol does not dissipate oxygen and is therefore safe for people and for any victims who cannot get out of a room.

NO structural provisions or modifications

The fire extinguishing system is easy to install and does not require any structural provisions or modifications, which directly results in:

– No pipework
– Walls remain intact
– No pressure relief valves
– No separate space for cylinders
– Cost savings

Almost no maintenance, maximum production time

The fire extinguishing systems of AF-X Fireblocker are pressureless. This keeps maintenance limited. The life span of the system is 15 years. This makes a cost comparison with other systems very easy.

Some more advantages for ofshore Fire suppression

– Very effective extinguishing
– No extinguishing damage
– Environmentally friendly
– Easy installation
– Takes up very little space
– Relatively little weight
– Not harmful to people or equipment
– Complete system in stainless steel housing
– Financially attractive
– Life-span of 15 years

A few things we’re great at looking at Fire Suppression of Offshore aplications

The fight against fire has been fundamentally improved by the use of the aerosol fire extinguishing systems. The dry aerosol is a solid that, once activated, blocks the fire in its origin.

Environmentally Friendly

– Zero Ozone Depletion Potential
– Zero Global Warming Potential
– Negligible Atmospheric Lifetime
– No gas
–So pressureless
– It doesn’t use water
– nor affects oxygen levels

Financially Interesting

– 15 year life-span
– Investment costs are lower
(No structural adjustments)
– It’s easier to maintain than traditional systems
– Simplicity, Plug & Play, Compact
– Fully Certified

More Easy to Install

– It’s easier and faster to install
– It doesn’t requires special conditions:
– No water-pressure, No water-access or water-storage
– No seperated room for gas-cylinders, No piping
