Power Generation Fire protection in the Power Generation Industry
A power generation facility has several high-risk areas where a fire or an explosion can occur. Common problems are hot particles and foreign objects (stones, metal pieces etc) in incoming material which can cause ignition in the process. Another common problem is friction due to for example material build-up, which can occur at several places in the process.
Fire protection solutions for Power Plants
A power plant has several risk areas where a fire or an explosion can occur. Common problems are hot particles and foreign material as stones, metal pieces etc, in incoming material which can cause ignition in the process. Another common problem is friction, which can occur in several places in the process, for example due to material build-up.
Firefly offers fire protection solutions for the whole process in everything from the Dump station and the screener to the silo and the boiler.
Fire protection of Turbines
The greatest fire hazards in power generation turbines come from lube oil. The normal turbine temperature operation, on bearings and some pipes, is higher than the ignition temperature of the lubrication oil used for these equipment. This fuel-temperature operational condition produces a risk that should be eliminated by an accurate, fast and automatic fire prevention system.
Fires normally occur at the turbine bearings, lube oil piping, below the turbine deck and the lube oil reservoir. The Firefly TurbineGuard system, with its punctual design, could extinguish an emerging fire in the hazardous areas of the equipments or even prevent the occurrence of fires in power generation turbines.
Note: All Firefly systems are tailor-made according to the design of the plant. The examples above are a general explanation on how Firefly can minimize the risk of a fire or a dust explosion in this process. For further information, please contact Firefly.
