I work for a company that designs and provides fire detection and suppression solutions to high value, critical process customers. Here is a video of a high expansion fire-fighting foam test at an airport hangar.
Jason, I can't go anywhere anymore without looking up at the ceiling to check for sprinklers and/or detection!
Your first picture is a fire pump test header. The second picture is a rack of high pressure CO2 cylinders. These hold CO2 at 850 PSI. There are suppression agents stored at higher pressures, but this is 'high' vs. Low pressure CO2 stored in a refrigerated tank at 300 PSI.
Hey Jeff that is CooL,, I never knew such a thing existed on any "Factory Vehicles"!!!!
I did read the page from vid link,,,,
OMG I just couldn't imagine Emergency Personnel/Rescue following ALL those procedures before extracting the injured,,,,
Shut Down Procedures For Emergency Personnel
1. Check to see if the vehicle is equipped with a Fire Suppression System. Look for Manual button on the ceiling above the center console.
2. If the button is found on the vehicle, check to see if the system has been deployed (look for suppression material under and around the vehicle). If material is found, disconnect the battery and proceed as normal with your extrication. If the system has not been discharged – perform the following steps:
3. Disconnect the battery.
4. Locate the Suppression System fuse and disconnect. The fuse (circled below) can be found in the fuse box underneath and to the left of the steering wheel.
5. After the battery is disconnected, there is a one minute drain time on the system’s capacitor. After one minute, normal operations can continue.
Hey Earl, your alcohol comment got me thinking also,,,
I would like to see injections on a really carboned up combustion chamber (like the 149
) with maybe "water" or "mmo" (the good oLe stuff vs the new ceramic) injected along w/ 89, 91, & 93 octane varying the additive ratio on each test,,, record the data and then post results over on the IH Cub Cadet thread,,,
