Steam Turbine

Steam turbine generators are widely used throughout the world as a common source of energy production for public utilities and industry. Fires in turbines are not frequent, but when they occur they can be dangerous for responders to handle, difficult for power plant operators to manage, and costly for the utility and the public they serve.

Understanding Corrosion and Microbiologically Induced Corrosion (MIC)

Jan 13, 2014 4:44:00 PM Posted by Lee Kaiser

Corrosion exists in almost every fire sprinkler system installed. Some systems are always filled with water – wet pipe systems. Some systems have air in the pipes until the system is called to fill with water – dry pipe and pre-action systems. Both wet and dry systems have corrosion issues, but they are dramatically worse in dry systems.

Hot Aisle/Cold Aisle Containment Drives Changes to Fire Protection in the Data Center - Part 1 of 2

Jan 31, 2012 4:23:00 PM Posted by Lee Kaiser

Fire Protection System installations in Data Centers are being challenged by computing density increases and the push for PUE improvements. High cooling loads and reducing cooling energy cost is driving data center managers to change the physical structure of their rooms. Hot Aisle and Cold Aisle (HACA) containment systems in the various flavors they come in are very efficient at improving cooling efficiency and can often have short payback timeframes. Most newly constructed data centers these days include HACA containment and many existing data centers are being retrofitted as well. It is obvious that the HACA strategy is here to stay and for good reason.
