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
  • Highly Dependable: no electricity (FireDETEC tubing technology)
  • Improves productivity due to less maintenance, material change and downtime
  • A choice of suppression agents
  • A choice of detection systems

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 Agent

  • BerkiCold – Biological foam concentrate, environmentally friendly – Fluor Free, ideal for engine fires – rapidly removes heat and prevents reignition
  • FireDETEC TS-55 – Liquid-based agent (water mist) with glycol-free antifreeze, low freezing point, ideal for engine fires – rapidly removes heat and prevents reignition

A Choice of Detection Systems

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

1. Quick & Easy connection to existing 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.
