Here’s how they work:
- Once the tubing detects the fire, it ruptures, resulting in a drop of pressure causing the indirect valve to activate. The valve diverts flow from the detection tube to the larger outlet ports.
- When the fire suppression system kicks in, a suppressing agent is discharged from the cylinder through the diffuser nozzles, flooding the area while effectively suppressing the fire quickly and thoroughly.
- An indirect release system is typically used in larger areas that require a high volume of extinguishing agents to suppress the fire effectively.
Both direct and indirect systems are available in low and high-pressure functionality for areas of any size. A fire suppression specialist can help determine which system is right for your application
