Kidde Marine ADS System
Kidde Marine ADS SystemHigh-Performance Fire Protection…The Versatile SolutionThe Kidde Marine ADS System is a clean agent fire suppression system designed for total flooding marine applications. Its high-performance discharge capability is well suited to both Halon retrofit and large hazards. Whether you’re refitting an old halon system or building new, the Kidde Marine ADS System is for you. The Marine ADS System uses a separate supply of compressed nitrogen gas to propel liquid FM-200 extinguishing agent through distribution piping and into the protected space. The separation of propellant and agent offers many helpful features, such as: Smaller Pipe Sizes: The separation of nitrogen propellant from FM-200 agent allows for increased flow performance. Smaller pipe sizes can be used to discharge larger quantities of agent. This represents a significant reduction in the materials and installation costs. Halon 1301 Drop-In: The combination of the aforementioned features allows the system to be used as a virtual “drop-in” replacement for existing halon installations. Most changes are limited to agent storage cylinder and nozzle replacement. Large Hazards: Kidde’s FM-200 Marine ADS System is the perfect choice for large enclosures, complicated or long pipe networks. The agent can be propelled for longer distances than a conventional FM-200 system.Flexible Storage Location: Kidde FM-200 Marine ADS System cylinders can be stored further away from the hazard being protected, providing increased flexibility when choosing container storage location. Marine Approvals: Approved for use in marine applications such as machinery spaces and flammable liquid storage areas by major regulatory agencies such as USCG and UL. Weight and Space: Kidde Engineered Systems weigh less and take up less space than either carbon dioxide or water mist systems, so they provide more fuel-efficient solutions to shipboard fire protection and leave more capacity for revenue-generating cargo or passengers.
Kidde Marine Carbon Dioxide System
Kidde Marine Carbon Dioxide SystemThe Kidde Marine Carbon Dioxide Suppression System Seafaring vessels—by their nature—are at greater risk of suffering the devastating consequences of a fire-related catastrophe. The absence of emergency services, limited escape options and presence of flammable liquids while at sea make proper fire protection an absolute necessity. Many shipboard fires begin in unoccupied cargo holds or machinery spaces—Kidde offers the Marine Carbon Dioxide Suppression System to contain such a fire before it can spread to threaten the crew, passengers, assets or the vessel itself. How the System Works. The Kidde Marine Carbon Dioxide System utilizes highly sophisticated electric and/or pneumatic detection units which sense fire at its inception—immediately alerting the control system. The Control Panel activates the Control Head which initiates the release of Carbon Dioxide from the cylinders. The suppressant is delivered through a fixed piping network to multi-jet nozzles, which discharge the Carbon Dioxide directly onto the hazard—providing rapid, automatic fire protection around the clock. Marine Approvals. The Kidde Marine Carbon Dioxide System is approved for use in marine applications such as machinery spaces and flammable liquid storage areas by major regulatory agencies such as Underwriters Laboratories, The American Bureau of Shipping (Type Approval), and Lloyd’s Register of Shipping (Type Approval). Worldwide Service Network. Whether you dock your vessel in the port of Singapore or San Francisco, it’s likely you’ll find a Kidde fire protection professional in the vicinity. Our global network of distributors are certified to perform the services you’ll need to keep your system at peak performance—from installation, retrofit or recharge to routine maintenance and emergency repairs.

So it is the preferred fire suppression agent for protection of shipboard spaces where crew or other occupants may be present. Marine Approvals. Kidde FM-200 Systems are approved for use in marine applications such as machinery spaces and flammable liquid storage areas by major regulatory agencies such as UL, FM, LPC, USCG, ABS, DNV, MCA and AMSA. Weight. Kidde FM-200 Systems weigh less than either carbon dioxide or water mist systems. So they provide more fuel-efficient solutions to shipboard fire protection. Space. Kidde FM-200 Systems take up less space than other types of fire suppression systems. This means more room for revenue-generating cargo or passengers. Before you leave port, make sure you’ve installed the right fire suppression system. A Kidde FM-200 System.

Kidde Marine Novec 1230 SystemThe New Option for Marine Fire Protection...Kidde Marine Engineered Fire Suppression System Designed for Use with 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fluid If you’re building a new vessel or retrofitting a halon system on an existing one, the best fire protection decision you can make is to select a Kidde Marine Fire Suppression System utilizing Novec 1230 fluid. Here’s why: Life Safety. Novec 1230 fluid, like halon 1301 and other halon replacements, works by interrupting the fire on a molecular level, not by taking oxygen from the protected space. So it is the preferred fire suppression agent for protection of shipboard spaces where crew or other occupants may be present. Environmental. Novec 1230 fluid has an ozone depletion of potential of zero and the lowest global warming potential of any clean agent available making Novec 1230 fluid the natural choice for customers concerned about the environment. Marine Approvals. Kidde Engineered Systems utilizing Novec 1230 fluid are approved for use in marine applications such as machinery spaces and flammable liquid storage areas by major regulatory agencies such as UL, USCG, ABS, DNV, LRS, and MCA. Weight and Space. Kidde Engineered Systems weigh less and take up less space than either carbon dioxide or water mist systems, so they provide more fuel-efficient solutions to shipboard fire protection with more room for revenue-generating cargo or passengers.

Kidde WHDRIs Your Galley Safe From A Catastrophic Event? While at sea or pier side, the last thing you need is business interruption due to a fire in the galley area. Whether you’re building a new vessel or refitting an existing one, the best solution to providing a safe enjoyable experience for your guests is Kidde’s WHDR galley fire protection system. 24-Hour Protection for Peace of Mind. Most ship owners provide fire protection for ventilation and exhaust ducts. Many code requirements overlook the most critical element in the prevention of fire propagation to these protected areas - the galley. Kidde provides 24-hour fire protection and superior integrated detection capabilities for cooking appliances as well as galley ventilation equipment. Statistics show that most fires occur in cooking operations at the cooking line where fuel load is high, human involvement is present, and equipment failure is possible. Superior Fire Protection.

Unlike many other types of protection that merely provide suppression of the fire until emergency personnel arrive, the Kidde WHDR wet chemical system is designed and tested to extinguish fires and prevent re-flash, acting as your primary line of defense against damage. Fire propagation to unprotected areas is kept in check while clean up is minimized. A damp cloth to wipe down the affected areas is all that is needed to quickly get back into business. Proven Performance. Kidde’s WHDR galley systems have been tested and approved to the most stringent performance standards in the industry. Brought about by the evolution of new cooking trends, increased appliance operating temperatures, and 24-hour operation of kitchen facilities. Kidde systems excelled during Underwriter Laboratories Standard UL 300 performance testing.
