Clean agent suppression systems
Janus Fire Systems designs and manufactures clean agent suppression systems utilizing either FM-200® or 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fluid. These non-conductive and human-safe systems are typically installed to protect the following locations and equipment:
Janus Fire Systems
- Telecommunication facilities
- Computer rooms
- Control rooms
- Marine systems
- Museums and universities
- Libraries and archives
- Storage facilities
- Oil and gas petrochemical facilities
- Pharmaceutical and medical facilities
- Electronics equipment
- Data storage facilities
- Medical facilities
Carbon dioxide suppression systems
Janus Fire Systems manufactures and designs both low-pressure systems where the carbon dioxide is stored in refrigerated ASME pressure vessels and high-pressure systems where the CO2 is stored in pressurized spun steel cylinders.
Janus Fire Systems also designs retrofit control systems for upgrading existing carbon dioxide systems to meet recently revised NFPA guidelines. Carbon dioxide systems are used in the following industries and locations:
- Power generation: base load plants, combined cycle plants, power peaking units and turbine enclosures
- Cement plant / blast furnace: indirect coal firing systems
- Metals production and processing: electric furnaces, continuous casters, rolling mills (steel and aluminum) and coating lines
- Electronic operations: computer facilities, information storage systems and electrical substations
- Halon replacement / upgrades: coal conversions and coal storage / handling / pulverizing
Fire protection foam systems
Foam systems are typically used where flammable liquids are present. There are multiple types of foam, but each type is formed by the same three basic parts: air, in the form of bubbles; water delivered in a specific density within an area; and foam concentrate injected into the water stream through a proportioner. Foam systems are generally implemented in locations such as the following:
- Aircraft hangars
- Cable tunnels
- Flammable liquid storage
- Tank farms
- Loading facilities
Water-based sprinkler systems
In water-based sprinkler systems, piping is connected to an adequate water supply based on the hazard being protected so that water is discharged immediately following the actuation of a sprinkler head. Water-based systems are utilized in locations and applications such as:
- Industrial machine spaces
- Power generation plants
- Steel foundries
- Automotive manufacturing
Fire protection alarm and detection systems
Janus Fire Systems carries both conventional and addressable control panels and accessories to complement and control any type of fire suppression system. Among the devices and stations available are the following:
- Detection: spot type heat detection, linear heat detection, air sampling smoke detection, standard smoke detection, and sophisticated gas and flame detection
- Manual stations: discharge stations, keyed lock-out stations and abort stations
- Audible and visual devices: alarm horns, alarm strobes, alarm bells, explosion-proof products and combination units
In 2014 the FIREX International event returns home to London. Taking up residency at the ExCeL provides a purpose built venue in the UK's international business hub.
