AMFE – Cost Effective Electrical Fire Protection

Posted on 10 Aug 2020

Causes

With electricity being the leading cause of fires, it is essential you have appropriate measures in place for prevention and suppression.

AMFE from KSS protects electrical devices and equipment by detecting and extinguishing at the first sign of temperature increase.

Why choose AMFE – Easy to use  /  Easy to install (retrofittable)  /  Variety of customer specific operating & releasing temperatures available  /  No water being used (gas)  /  Scalable  /  Robust and shock tolerant  /  NOVEC or CO2 as extinguishing agent  /  Usable in various applications (home, industry, automotive, etc.)  /  Mechanical release; no electric power supply required  /  Release mechanism: qualified in the automotive and sprinkler industry

The AMFE not only releases the extinguishing gas but also signals that it has. In installations where accessibility is limited, the AMFE can be connected to a monitoring system by two connectors for reading a signal. Permanently controlling if the AMFE has been initiated (e.g. line control through a PLC or monitoring device) allows for precise knowledge about the status of whether and where a fire might have started in an otherwise hard to reach installation. The S-AMFE is rated for typical PLC signals of 24V/48V and 1000mA. The connectors are standardized (6,3mm blade terminals), but customizations are possible.

In control cabinets, fire can quickly lead to a disaster. The AMFE extinguishes reliably and precisely.

APPLICATION VARIETY

The application spectrum of the AMFE is diverse: It ranges from technical household appliances, exhibits and collections to solutions in a vast variety of applications, both at home or in the industry.

FORM & FUNCTION

Due to rising heat in a fire scenario the pressure inside the glass bulb increases. After the predetermined operating temperature of the heat sensitive glass bulb is reached, the glass bulb bursts into small fragments and triggers a mechanism that releases the gas from the cylinder. The extinguishing medium is released through the holes in the outlet body and extinguishes the fire when the fire is still in an early stage. The quick operation and the effective extinguishing of the fire prevents further expansion of the fire and helps keeping damage to a minimum.

Introducing the Evertuff Green Series

Posted on 8 Jul 2020

Evertuff Green    Green Series

As you may already know due to environmental and health concerns there is a rising in the Fire Industry to push for alternatives to the popular Foam Portable Extinguishers. Alongside 2kg C02 PFE’s the 6ltr Foam PFE is the most popular PFE sold in the Irish Market and in most cases has been recommended by habit rather than there being a class B risk. The problem up until now was replacing it with an environmentally sensitive alternative.

We are delighted to launch the first of our Green Series PFE’s which is a direct alternative for the 6ltr Foam 21A rated PFE when there is no class B risk. The Green Series 6ltr Water Spray with a 21A Rating contains water only with no additives so its contents are harmless to the environment. In addition the product can be recycled at end of life.

Valid Certificates of Conformity:

  • EN3-7:2004+A1:2007 PERFORMANCE TESTED TO 21A
  • DIELECTRICALLY TESTED AND CONFORMS TO: EN3-3:2004+A1:2007 SAFE FOR INADVERTANT USE ON LIVE ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT UP TO 35kV AT MINIMUM DISTANCE 1 METRE
  • MPA DRESDEN – NOTIFIED No. 0767 – CERTIFICATE No. KB235/18
  • BS EN3 – KN 503518
  • CE0036

Available now, this Green Series 6ltr Water Spray has been designed for the Irish Market and to compliment all the requirements contained within IS 291.

If you would like any further information on this product please feel free to make contact.

Communication is Key

Posted on 1 May 2018

Last year, while reviewing our internal systems we spoke to Vodafone about the Product Range, outside of the Mobile offering which we have always used, and they introduced us to the Vodafone One Net Business Platform. The rest as they say is history. Like the other IT Systems we use, its a platform that has helped us continue to grow & adapt So, when the good people at Vodafone & JWT Folk asked if we’d like to be involved in a case study we jumped at the chance.  We also brought a client – St. margarets Golf Club aklong for the journey, so a special thanks to Mick in St. Margarets.
