VID FIREKILL was contacted by the owner of several power plants in the UK using waste wood as the main fuel. They had experienced fires in the waist wood in their incoming inventory area and therefore wanted a watermist solution. The owner wanted to be able to supply the system with water from the existing water mains, and conventional water spray solutions would exceed that.
VID FIREKILL offered to have their special integrated pipe and nozzle solution Model N-pipes tested for such a scenario involving deep-seated Class A fires. Following the CEN/TS 14972 annex B, together with an ISO17025 accredited laboratory and the owner’s insurer, VID FIREKILL accomplished to have their Model N-pipes Type 2V successfully tested to such large, potential deep-seated class A fires with acceptance from the AHJ being the insurer.
