07 Jul Introducing the newest HI-FOG fire protection unit from Marioff
Marioff Corporation Oy recently announced the launch of a new HI-FOG® Electric Pump Unit (EPU) for the high-pressure water mist fire suppression segment.
Incorporating closed loop pressure control, the EPU revolutionizes pumping technology for high-pressure water mist technology.
Marioff, a leading developer of the water mist fire protection technology, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
Different from industry-standard pump design, the EPU’s advanced control system ensures that the pump unit provides only the required pressure and flow. Pressure optimization is achieved with an advanced software control and a frequency converter. Excess water unloading is no longer needed, which simplifies the mechanical design of the pump skid. The pump unit incorporates many built-in redundancies, including activation and pressure control, to ensure operational reliability.
The EPU is equipped with a user-friendly interface that provides a real-time status of the pump unit and the HI-FOG® system, alarm and help information, maintenance reminders and event history ensuring efficient and optimized maintenance activities. The EPU consists of a modular pump skid and separate control cabinet.
“The EPU is the new core of the HI-FOG® system that will provide an excellent platform for taking new features like remote monitoring in use to improve the maintenance and servicing,”
The modular structure together with practical service access enables flexible installation and optimized use of footprint. Different configurations can be put together depending on the system capacity requirements.
“Our state-of-the-art pump technology keeps Marioff in the forefront of the technical development of high-pressure water mist solutions,” said Isto Hantila, managing director, Marioff Corporation Oy.
“The EPU is the new core of the HI-FOG® system that will provide an excellent platform for taking new features like remote monitoring in use to improve the maintenance and servicing,” said Markku Vuorisalo, director, engineering, Marioff Corporation Oy.
The HI-FOG® EPU is suitable for buildings, industrial and marine applications and will be available beginning in May 2016.
