Automatic fire suppression is a system that can detect and extinguish, or contain, a fire without having to rely on human intervention. In their simplest form, these systems have a means of detection, actuation and delivery.
Fully automatic fire suppression systems take away the need to depend on a person to discover and tackle a fire. Within seconds of a fire occurring, the detection system detects the radiant heat from the fire, automatically actuates the system and delivers the extinguishing agents straight into the heart of the fire.
When fire protection is left solely to human interaction, there are inherent risks. Firstly someone needs to be physically present to be able to step in and many applications simply don’t allow for this due to location and/or environments not being accessible for humans. Examples are remote power generation, wind turbines and many industrial applications where noise, heat and contaminants are excessive.
You also have to consider whether the person is competent and trained to understand the early stages of a fire, as well as how to operate a handheld fire extinguisher correctly. Fires will often be very small when they start, occurring in areas that are difficult to both see and gain access to. Even if a fire is detected promptly, the application of the correct fire protection device and choice of extinguishing medium is reliant on the person present at that time.
ll of these risks are mitigated when a Reacton automatic fire suppression system is installed. The fire suppression system is in charge of the detection, which will be located in and around the fire risk areas. It will offer repeatable detection in the hardest to reach areas without false alarms. The extinguishing agent will be precisely discharged and delivered straight into the heart of the fire. Most importantly, this happens without any person having to be present or involved. Meaning Reacton’s system provides fire protection day and night, keeping watch over your assets so you don’t have to.

An automatic fire extinguisher is the latest addition to fire fighting equipment. Technologists are busy doing tasks for the ease of human beings. The invention of auto fire extinguishers is a result of such efforts.
That type of automatic fire extinguisher is ABC. Hence, it can extinguish all types of fire. This proves that auto fire extinguisher has a broad application because it can be used to control all kind of fires.
The Fire Safety Trading PVT Ltd, company deals in all kinds of fire fighting equipment including auto fire extinguishers. We provide all types of automatic fire extinguisher.
The main feature of auto fire extinguishers which makes them dominant over the conventional fire extinguisher is that we do not have to operate them manually rather it gets operated automatically.
The automatic fire extinguishers senses the temperature and becomes automatically in action, whenever it is required.
Automatic Fire Extinguishers
Automatic fire extinguishers are, as their name suggests, designed to put out fires without requiring human intervention. It can take a while for someone to detect a fire, by which point the flames might have caused widespread damage or grown in size and severity to pose a life-threatening risk. By comparison, automatic fire extinguishers activate the moment the
How do automatic fire extinguishers work?
Automatic fire extinguishers work the same way as standard extinguishers do, except the squeeze grip handles are replaced by a heat-sensitive glass bulb which acts as the trigger. The bulb contains a liquid that expands when subject to heat. At a certain temperature, typically 68° Celsius, the bulb bursts and the extinguishing agent is released. The extinguisher head acts as a sprinkler and effectively disperses the extinguishing agent across the local area.
For example, if there’s a fire in the boat engine compartment, the automatic fire extinguisher will activate and extinguish the fire swiftly, before people on the boat even realise what’s happened.

Don’t forget to take a look at our range of car and boat fire extinguishers, if you’re considering your options for these types of environments.
What’s the difference between automatic powder and FE36 extinguishers?
Automatic powder extinguishers are popular for two reasons: they will fight almost any type of fire, and they are affordable. However, there is a risk of after-fire damage. FE36 powder extinguishers are more expensive because the FE36 gas is a clean agent. This means it will leave no after-fire damage or mess. And since the extinguishing agent is a gas, it can rapidly disperse across a local area.
Our point of view is that no matter what a fire must be stopped, and so preventative safety measures must be taken where necessary. Learn more about choosing an automatic fire extinguisher.
Is FE36 bad for the environment?
No. Unlike Halon 1211 (BCF) or Halon 1301 which came in green extinguishers, FE36 has zero effect on ozone depletion and is safe to use anywhere. Learn more about fire safety and prevention in our fire safety videos.
