Fire Suppression

“Fire suppression is the manner to control and extinguish fire. In the USA Fire Suppression systems are governed by the codes under the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) [1]. Fire Suppression Systems are commonly used on heavy power equipment. Suppression systems use a combination of dry chemicals and/or wet agents to suppress equipment fires. Suppression systems have become a necessity to several industries as they help control damage and loss to equipment. Common means of detection are through heat sensors, wiring, or manual detection (depending on system selection).”
