Effektive fire protection for warehouse robots

Fire protection for warehouse robots with Inergen

The prevalence of warehouse robots has increased in recent years owing to the increased productivity that warehouse automation entails. A warehouse robot quickly becomes the facility’s most important factor, and temporary malfunction or, in a worst-case scenario, complete destruction by a fire will result in considerable financial consequences.

Fires involving warehouse robots may be caused by a short circuit in the motor, for example, or among other internal components. Such a fire can be difficult to extinguish and can quickly wreak havoc. It may spread to the entire warehouse or even cost lives.

With Inergen, we can help you with an effective fire protection solution that is adapted to your needs and provides security throughout the working day.

5 good reasons for using Inergen fire protection

  • Detectors inside the warehouse robot ensure early detection.

  • Rapid, effective extinguishing everywhere in the warehouse robot.

  • The system can be designed to protect against re-ignition for as long as desired by the authorities.

  • Leaves no consequential damage to buildings, inventory or goods.

  • Harmless for humans to remain in the affected area.

Inergen ensures effective fire extinguishing with a special solution for robots

A spark from a short circuit inside a warehouse robot can readily start a fire and put production on standby. As regulations for fire protection of warehouse robots are yet to be established, the way this is dealt with varies widely.

Fires in warehouse robots can be difficult to extinguish since they are very compact and water will have difficulty penetrating to where the fire is. The fire potential from a compact, fully filled warehouse robot is considerable, so the authorities will often require extinguishing specifically in the warehouse robot itself.

An Inergen extinguishing system inside a warehouse robot is optimal, as the relatively dense, limited area concerned may often be managed with only 2-5 cylinders. And since the gas employs all possible entryways and a fire will suck air towards it, the Inergen itself will ‘find’ the fire and effectively extinguish it.

Fire Eater has developed a special solution for warehouse robots, which maintains the extinguishing concentration and compensates for any gaps that the robot has.

How Inergen works on fires in warehouse robots

An Inergen system is specially designed to react quickly and automatically to fire and incipient fire. The swift response is owing to sensitive detectors, which are placed in the robot. As soon as a fire is detected, Inergen is released via an array of nozzles. This sufficiently lowers the oxygen level in the robot to put out the fire and suppress re-ignition. Inergen is harmless to humans so it is safe to remain by the robot when the system is activated.
