Fike Corporation, a global manufacturer and supplier of fire protection systems, has launched its latest product, Fike Small Space Suppression. This new technology uses a flexible pneumatic tube, which is strategically routed through small applications to detect and suppress fires at their source using 3MTM NovecTM 1230 Fire Protection Fluid.

Fike Small Space Suppression comes in two configurations: direct and indirect.

The direct system is engineered for electrical cabinets, as heat-reactive tubing is routed through the confined space. Any fires in the space will melt a hole in the tubing, which is pressurized with nitrogen and will open the suppression cylinder. Agent will then be released from the hole and directly onto the fire.

The indirect system is designed for CNC machines and uses heat-reactive tubing. However, rather than the agent flowing through the hole in the tubing, the agent will flow through UL-listed suppression nozzles for 3MTM NovecTM 1230 fluid.

The system is available in 1kg, 2kg, 4kg, 6kg, 9kg and 18kg cylinders to ensure the most cost-effective size is selected for the unique application. Each cylinder comes fitted with a proprietary valve designed specifically for Fike Small Space Suppression. The ball valve is integrated into a stainless-steel body to reliably deliver agent into the tubing network and prevent leaks.

Amos Leap, Fike Fire Suppression Product Manager commented: “We are excited to add Fike Small Space Suppression to our comprehensive line of fire protection products. This new system ensures hard-to-reach assets are protected 24/7 and supported with unmatched customer service and technical support for which Fike is known.”
