Electrical Equipment Areas - Understanding the Nuances of Detection

Every facility has distinct areas and equipment that require specialized fire detection systems. F.E. Moran has solutions for every type of complex environment:

  • Early fire detection - provides sufficient warning in switchgear areas
  • Resilient detection systems - withstanding corrosive environments such as battery rooms
  • Solutions that interface with the plant's DCS - high grade detection systems, heat smoke video, air sampling and venting
  • Emergency transformer system replacement - F.E. Moran's experience allows them to implement a new system quickly and efficiently; whether it is a direct replacement or a new design, they can seamlessly install these systems for minimal interruption to the facility


Transformers - Applying Our Expertise to Protect Volatile Transformers

Transformers demand a specialized fire suppression solution to control fires safely within high-voltage areas. Through experience, F.E. Moran knows how to address relevant issues:

  • Adherence to industry guidelines - NFPA 15 Standard for Water Spray Fixed Systems, Basic Impulse Level (BIL) guidelines for voltage
  • Strategies for associated issues - oil containment, overflow and grounding issues
  • Experience with detection systems - intimate knowledge of all types of heat detection systems


Control and Computer Rooms - Safeguarding Fragile Equipment

Employing a fire protection system within computer and control rooms necessitates a solution that can effectively suppress fires without damaging fragile equipment.

  • Life safety systems - safeguarding spaces that are inhabited around the clock
  • Cable access areas - protecting the cable access areas that reside in the subfloor
  • Customized systems - implementing preaction, gas dual-zone and other appropriate systems to meet the facility's specific needs


Cable Vaults and Cable Spreading Areas - Specialized Solutions

Fires that originate in cable vaults or cable spreading areas are typically smoldering, deep-seated fires that are difficult to access. 

  • Installation in complex environments - F.E. Moran can work around these intricate configurations and penetrations
  • Robust protection systems - implementing a quality detection system, powerful sprinkler system and multiple levels of coverage
