Industrial Fire Fighting
Fighting a fire on an industrial complex requires a large amount of water for extinguishment, cooling, and vapor suppression. Generally, much more than can be provided by the existing fire ring main. The mobile industrial fire fighting solutions from Hydrodiesel can be deployed rapidly using water from a nearby lake or river enabling a swift response to the largest fires.
Industrial fires can often result in explosions. They are most likely to occur in facilities where there is a lot of flammable material present. These materials can include petroleum, petroleum products such as petrochemicals, or natural gas. Processing flammable materials such as hydrocarbons in units at high temperature and/or high pressure makes the hazards more severe. Facilities with such combustible material include oil refineries, tank farms (oil depots), natural gas processing plants, and chemical plants, particularly petrochemical plants.
In these situations, it is necessary to obtain water from a nearby source, like a lake or river. However, the challenge is to get the required water from the source to the location of the fire which could be physically distant from each other.
Largest capacity pump systems in the industry
Hydrodiesel delivers mobile and static fire fighting systems with the largest capacities in the industry. We develop solutions tailored to a given situation. Our systems can be deployed rapidly, enabling a swift response to the largest fires out there.
Over the past four decades, Hydrodiesel has developed and delivered numerous solutions for industrial fire fighting. Below are examples of some of the possible configurations of our mobile systems.
In case the fire ring main provides too low residual pressure at the hydrant, a booster pump can be deployed to deliver high pressure fire water to one or more fire trucks or mobile monitors.
When there is water in the vicinity of the pumping system, flexible suction lines can be used to extract the water and deliver it downstream, by means of a booster pump set to one or more fire trucks or mobile monitors.
When the vertical or horizontal distance between the water source and the fire is too great for draft pumping, a hydraulic driven submersible lift pump can be used to supply water to a booster pump that delivers it downstream to one or more fire trucks or mobile monitors.
With a track record in high quality fire fighting systems for offshore, marine and land we have supplied solutions to companies and (local) governments worldwide. Enabling our customers to reduce the impact of disasters on land and sea.
