Dry Chemical Skid Units, Hand-Hose Line, ASME Vessel

Description and Capacities

Burner Standard and Marine type Dry Chemical hand hose line systems are designed  for use on Class B and C hazards.  Standard capacities are available in 350, 500, 1000, 1500, and 2500 lbs. and are optionally completed with standard skid, piped installation or trailer mount.  DCP large semi-portable unit capacities range from 350 to 3000 lbs and are optionally pre-pressurized for instantaneous discharge.

Single Person Operation

All Dry Chemical and Powder Systems can accommodate single person manual operation or configured for automatic discharge.  Hose-reel auto actuated systems can be built to specifications required.  *Hand hose line extinguishing system units are intended to supplement fixed nozzle extinguishing system units or to supplement portable fire extinguishers for the protection of specific hazards for which dry chemical is a suitable extinguishing agent.

Offshore dry chemical powder skid.

Large Capacity, Semi-Portable, Corrosion Resistant for Offshore Fire Protection

Dry Chemical Applications:

Dry Chemical Systems effectively extinguish class B and C hazards (using sodium or Purple K potassium bicarbonate agents) for Flammable Liquids, Gases, and Electrical Fires where other types of equipment and agents may be less or ineffective.  DCP Systems have been designed and built from the ground up for offshore applications and extreme fire hazard areas.  Large capacities are effective when a sustained attack is required.  Ships transporting bulk liquefied natural gas (LNG) are recommended to be fitted with dry chemical protection protect the deck and cargo areas and all loading station manifolds.  These DCP Deck Systems are composed of independent strategically placed nitrogen propelled self-contained skid units.  The systems can be configured with hose reels mounted on the unit in addition remote hose reels.  Suited for Offshore Oil and Gas Facilities, Marine Vessels, and Fuel Storage Locations, and FPSOs – Floating Production and Storage units  **Dry Chemical Skid deck systems effective on LNG and LPG fires (American Bureau of Shipping 141, “Guidance Notes on Fire Fighting Systems”).  Systems conform to IMO – International Maritime Organization

Standard Corrosion Control Package

Burner’s Exterior Protective Process to withstand extreme offshore conditions enables a typical lifespan up to 10 years. Components are broken down to individual units prior to application of the corrosion resistant paint finish to ensure all surfaces receive the maximum protection possible. Systems are assembled with stainless steel, brass, and bronze hardware and fittings and these items are additionally protected applying corrosion resistant coatings to each item.

Testing and Training

Burner Provides full DCP Systems evaluation, testing, and training at The Carrol L. Herring Fire & Emergency Training Institute in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

*Outline of Investigation for Stationary and Semi-Portable Hand Hose Line Dry Chemical Extinguishing System Units (UL 1254H)

**A deck system is typically made up of several independent skid-mounted units. The units are self-contained fire-fighting systems that use a dry chemical-extinguishing agent propelled by a high-pressure inert gas such as nitrogen.(ABS 141, “Guidance Notes on Fire-Fighting Systems”)

SVR 5C-8-11/4.3, vessels with a cargo capacity of 1,000 m3 (35,315 ft3) or more require a dry chemical fire extinguishing system. This system must consist of at least two (2) independent and self-contained, dry chemical powder units, which include the associated controls, pressurizing medium fixed piping, monitors and/or hand hose lines.  (ABS 141, “Guidance Notes on Fire-Fighting Systems”)

Vessels with a cargo capacity of less than 1,000 m3 (35,315 ft3), only one (1) unit is necessary. This system must be activated by an inert gas such as nitrogen, used exclusively for this purpose and stored in pressure vessels adjacent to the powder containers. Details of the powder units should be requested and compliance with the same confirmed.  (ABS 141, “Guidance Notes on Fire-Fighting Systems”)
