    Fire Suppression Systems: An extra layer of safety for inventory and equipment protection

    At Triton Power, we customize diesel generators to your business-specific needs. Our team recently worked on a project in which we designed and installed fire suppression equipment in eight 110kW Tier 4 Final generators that will recharge battery-operated container cranes in ports across the United States.

    Like a fire sprinkler system, a fire suppression system is used to extinguish or control fires and is activated by heat, smoke, or a combination of both. However, a fire suppression system uses gaseous, chemical, or foam fire suppression agents to suppress the fire rather than water. They are particularly worthy investments for industries and companies with flammable materials or high-value goods. 

    In our customer’s case, container cranes cost over $1,000,000 dollars, and a busy US port can process over 200 billion dollars worth of goods in a year. Even a minor fire can translate into significant losses to importers across the nation, bringing inventory shortages in different industries.

    A second benefit is eliminating the need for human activation or intervention in case of a fire. Not only does this reduce the risk to occupants’ safety, but it is also ideal for extinguishing fires in remote or less accessible areas of a building or estate. In the past, we have shipped generators to a mountain observatory or military bases in the middle of the deserts; these are scenarios where a solid fire containment strategy is essential.

    Furthermore, this preventative measure could be viewed favorably by insurance providers, who may reward business and facility owners with lower premium rates for taking this precaution.

    Would you consider adding a fire suppression system to your generator? Let’s talk! Our sales engineers are available to help and answer all your questions. Call us at 305-592-6300 or email us at info@tritonpower.com.
