Automotive manufacturing facilities are complex and consist of many areas with different levels of fire risk, from production lines to paint booths and flammable liquids storage rooms as well as offices and server rooms. It is imperative to have a reliable and safe fire fighting system installed in the automotive manufacturing facility that activates quickly in case of a fire and offers fire protection for both people and equipment. Through years of research and testing, Danfoss has developed a fire fighting system based on a high-pressure water mist that is ideal for fire protection of any areas in an automotive manufacturing facility.
The intelligent use of water
SEM-SAFE is a high-pressure water mist fire fighting system that uses micro droplets released through nozzles into protected areas. It comprises a high-pressure modular pump unit, section valves, piping and water mist nozzles.
Added fire safety
With SEM-SAFE high-pressure water mist technology, all areas in an automotive car factory can be protected.
Key manufacturing areas:
- Paint booths
- Wind tunnels
- Engine test cells
- R&D centres
- Environmental testing chambers
- Flammable liquids storage
- Acoustic testing chambers
- Server rooms
- Control and monitoring rooms
- Offices and meeting rooms
Superior extinguishing capability
SEM-SAFE high-pressure water mist activates fast and locally in the areas where the fire has been detected. It extinguishes rapidly and effectively blocks radial heat, thus protecting against any structural damage as flames cannot expand. Fire is kept under control until the arrival of the fire fighting crew.
Minimised business interruption with SEM-SAFE
SEM-SAFE high-pressure water mist technology for fire fighting uses less water and produces a high level of atomization. This means that water mist is very gentle on high sensitive equipment such as server rooms. Downtime can be reduced significantly, because secondary water damage is kept to a minimum. In addition, the system is light and easy to integrate among other installations present in a factory.
