Rotarex Firetec

A Complete Detection & Suppression System Pre-engineered for Vehicle Engines

  • Most compact system in the world (According to UNECE R107 certification)
  • Able to protect up to 4m3 engine compartment with only 4 liters of agent1
  • Protects passengers and valuable equipment
  • Easy / Flexible installation
  • Quick & Effective suppression
  • Improves productivity due to less maintenance, material change and downtime

A Proven-Effective Agent

  • Liquid-based agent (water mist)with glycol-free antifreeze
  • Low freezing point
  • Ideal for engine fires – rapidly removes heat and prevents reignition

Patented Dual-Chamber Cylinder Technology

  • Dual chamber = Safety. Extinguishing liquid and pressurized gas are in separate chambers
  • When activated, the pressurized gas is released into the outer chamber forcing against a piston
  • The piston pushes the liquid out through the discharge tube
  • A built-in pressure regulator ensures a constant and sustained discharge

A Choice of Detection Systems

Electronic Detection

1. Quick & Easy connection to electronic linear detection systems:

Plug-&-Play connection to a solenoid actuator on the cylinder.

2. Instant suppression:

The electronic detection system detects a fire and sends a signal to the solenoid valve which actuates the special pressure differential valve and instantly floods the entire engine compartment extinguishing agent. The fire is quickly suppressed just moments after it began… minimizing damage and downtime.

3. Monitoring:

Information is displayed on the wireless message display installed in the driver’s cabin.

Pneumatic Sensor Tubing

1. Quick & Easy installation directly inside engine compartments:

The flexible sensor tubing is easily installed directly above and around the engine – closer to where a fire could start.

When in service, the tubing is pressurized with dry nitrogen to 16 bar. The dynamics of pressurization make the tubing more reactive to heat.

2. Early fire detection:

If a fire occurs, the heat of the fire causes the pressurized sensor tube to burst at the hottest spot (approx. 110°C)

3. Instant suppression:

The sudden tube depressurization actuates the special pressure differential valve and instantly floods the entire engine compartment extinguishing agent. The fire is quickly suppressed just moments after it began… minimizing damage and downtime.

Electronic Detection System

  • Less installation time due to wireless communication between the display located in the driver’s cabin and the electronic control unit installed in the engine compartment of the vehicle.
  • Easy installation, no pressurization or fittings needed.
  • Extendable with GSM communication for real time alerts.
  • Less maintenance required, reduced pressure drop due to mitigation of leakage rates through connections and permeability.
  • Real-time monitoring and surveillance due to the sensor technology.
  • Unlimited linear heat detection length possible.
  • Extended service time of system: no components change required before 10 years.

Wireless Communication

Wireless communication between display installed in the driver’s cabin and electronic control unit mounted in the engine compartment.

  • Easier installation process (no holes to drill, no cable to route through the vehicle)
  • Less maintenance due to less electrical issues

Electronic Control Unit (ECU)

Detects the fire through the sensors and actuates the COMPACT LINE Fire Suppression System. The information in case of the event of fire is transmitted wirelessly to the display.

  • Independent functioning
  • 7 Monitored inputs: Up to 5 temperature sensors, 1 linear heat detector, 1 pressure switch connection
  • 1 output: COMPACT LINE solenoid connection
  • Possibility to connect a wired manual actuator
  • Temperature range: -25°C to +130°C
