Deluge Management Systems
We are specialist providers of deluge fire suppression systems. Our engineers have established an enviable reputation within the industry for the provision of deluge systems, reviewing our clients’ assets and offering deluge protection based on effective and efficient designs using internationally approved equipment, combined with world-class installation and service.
Cost-effective turnkey deluge system capabilities
Our scope includes the provision of deluge valve assemblies, deluge skids, Flameshield 300 deluge distribution piping systems, deluge nozzles and maintenance.
We will work with our clients to ensure the optimum system is provided for their needs:
- Design – using Pipenet and 3D modelling
- Specification – advising client on appropriate materials, equipment and layouts in accordance with project standards
- Build – skid build and testing in our purpose-built workshops
- Commissioning – using our specialist safety technicians
- Service and maintenance – ensuring the complete system is maintained at its peak condition
Flameshield 300 Flexible Deluge Piping System
Flameshield 300 is a cost-effective answer to corroded and blocked deluge distribution systems. Flameshield is installed quickly, does not corrode and requires minimum service and maintenance.
The build-up of corrosion inside metal pipe-work systems in harsh and challenging environments can pose a serious threat to system functionality, exposing personnel and plant to unacceptable risks. Blockages can result in expensive plant shutdowns until the problem is identified and cleared.
Flameshield 300 is an alternative permanent piping system, internally constructed from nitrile rubber, re-inforced with steel braided layers and anti-static copper wire. It has a glass fibre internal membrane providing jet fire protection and an outer cover of red CR rubber which is abrasion, ozone, weather, heat and oil resistant.Download the Flameshield 300 product sheet
Deluge System Service and Maintenance
We have an expert team of technicians providing service and maintenance of deluge systems. The technicians are supported by our team of engineers and designers, ensuring that the complete system is maintained at its peak condition. We use the latest service technologies including dry testing with Vapo-Flo, reducing the need for potentially corrosive sea water wet testing.
Vapo-Flo is a non-toxic smoke generating system that reduces the need for wet deluge testing by using an oil-based vapour instead of water to test the effectiveness of deluge systems.
Currently, in an offshore environment, deluge systems are tested by passing seawater through the system which is sprayed over the equipment on the oil rig. This seawater causes accelerated corrosion of the equipment and the deluge pipework itself. Currently wet testing takes place anywhere between every six months to every five years with older systems requiring more frequent testing than newer systems. This increased wet deluge testing exacerbates corrosion within the pipework, resulting in possible unplanned shut-downs to rectify the resulting damage. Dry testing with Vapo-Flo reduces this risk as wet testing is required less frequently, extending periods between wet testing to five years plus.Download the Vapo-Flo product sheet
