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.
