The Flambus phenomenon

The Flambus phenomenon

The “Flambus” phenomenon emergency is now very well known.

According to various data, the last three years have seen 67 vehicles on fire, of which 21 only in 2018.

But if today it all seems very clear, why does this phenomenon have no end?

The main questions to which we would like to give an answer again are two:

  1. How a fire comes to life ?
  2. How this can be interrupted?

 

HOW IS THE FIRE CREATED?

In most cases, the fire arises due to fatty substances and oil residues which, over time, tend to create crusts of easily flammable material.

It is true that the heat produced by the combustion of the engine causes the engine body to reach 95 ° C and the exhaust pipes up to 600 °C; this means that the percentage of probability that a fire triggers is very high, especially if you add the poorly ventilated engine compartment and a high external temperature.

Two other fundamental elements concern:

  1. the wear of these means of transport
  2. poor maintenance – which does not allow to identify and therefore brake any faults and malfunctions on the vehicle.

It almost seems that the “maintenance” factor has now been placed in second place, at the time of the purchase of a heavy vehicle, without precisely taking into account the service that the vehicle must necessarily undergo during its entire activity.

WHAT ACTION CAN BE TAKEN?

Clearly the main objective is the safety of all passengers, road traffic, and environmental impact.

An efficient detection and extinction system aims to protect the vehicle and its passengers from the fire.

The fire system must be:

– EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE

– ECOFRIENDLY

– QUICK DETECTION AND PREVENTIVE

– SIMPLE MAINTENANCE

– 24\7 SYSTEM MONITORING

– ACOUSTIC AND VISUAL ALARM REPORT

Thus acting we would have a reliable security system and therefore the possibility of informing the driver and passengers of the occurrence of the event, signaling the reference zone, and intervening in the initial phase of the phenomenon.

Fire suppression system for Electric Buses

Fire suppression system for Electric Buses

Fires in vehicles can cause severe vehicle damage and often result in the loss of lives. These are by-and-large caused by short-circuits in the electrical installation or engine and battery compartment. 

DOMINO SAS  is the best solution to protect the electric buses. 

In order to minimize the possible risk of fire, the fire detection system must be reliable and efficient, thus equipped with a continuous communication and a suitable extinguishing system.

DOMINO SAS protect the electric vehicles thanks a compact system, easy to install, not pressurized, with a continuous monitoring.

WHY CHOOSE SAS DOMINO?

  • Highly effective extinguishing agent
  • Environmentally friendly.
  • Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP)=0
  • Global Warming Potential(GWP)=0
  • Non-toxic
  • Non-corrosive
  • Easy to install
  • No pressure vessels, piping or expensive installation manpower
  • ZERO maintenance
  • No damage to electronic equipment
  • Non conductive
ACTIVA –  SMART fire protection for electric charging columns.

ACTIVA – SMART fire protection for electric charging columns.

In the last years the world of mobility has embarked on a new route, embracing eco-sustainability. The future is electric.

Obviously the new technologies foresee the use of highly controlled materials for the constriction of electric vehicles / buses and the attached columns of refills, but when we look for the main causes of fire, we find in the first line the electrical devices / systems.

Safety is obviously a key factor for every charging system, especially taking into account that the charging station:

  • provides a connection socket
  • is on the road,
  • it is accessible from ordinary people, that is without any particular risk competence, even of an electrical nature.

ACTIVA continuously monitors both carbon monoxide levels and the absolute and differential temperature inside the electric charging column.

As soon as an increase in the concentration of monoxide and the temperature in a critical range is recorded, a pre-alarm is generated, over the range an alarm is signaled that activates the aerosol shutdown.

ACTIVA FE 100 is a device capable of integrating effective detection system with an efficient aerosol shutdown system

The NO Maintenance “SAS Automotive” of Domino Technology

The DOMINO TECHNOLOGY SAS system does not require any kind of preventive maintenance intervention as all the control functions are managed and displayed by the SAS CU control unit.

The SAS system can be installed entirely by electric cables, neither pressure pipes nor nozzles are required.

The condensed aerosol extinguishing system (potassium salts) involves the use of one or more generators (dispensers) electrically connected to the SAS CU unit.
Aerosol generators do not require special maintenance and have a life cycle of 15 years.

In case of extinction, even accidental, the motor of the vehicle will not be damaged and neither will get dirty with powders or liquids and the electronic components will not be damaged; all in total respect of the environment.

Each component of the SAS system is continuously monitored from the heat-sensitive cable to the aerosol generators and from the power supply to the relays.

Any anomalies are automatically reported by the control panel and displayed on the touch screen panel.

In the event of a fault, the point in failure will be easily identifiable

FIRE SAFETY AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEM (SAS)  WITH AEROSOL FOR HYBRID AND ELECTRIC BUSES.

FIRE SAFETY AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEM (SAS) WITH AEROSOL FOR HYBRID AND ELECTRIC BUSES.

The Safety Automotive System (SAS) is an automatic fire detection and extinguishing system that allows you to intervene quickly and avoid damage to the vehicle, safeguarding passengers.

In order to minimize the possible risk of fire, the fire detection system must be reliable and efficient, thus equipped with a continuous communication and a suitable extinguishing system.

The detection:

The use of a double detection within the same area ensures truthful information of the dangerous situation. The double consent logic, studied by DOMINO TECHNOLOGY, allows a prompt detection and avoids false alarms.

The constant control:

Having a real-time monitoring system that manages the control on the real working status of the fire detection and extinguishing system is a plus and a further security. Using a touch interface allows you to view anomalies in real time and intervene quickly

Switching off:

The action of the EXTINGUISHING AGENT aerosol takes place through the release of very fine micro particles (aerosol) of sodium and potassium salts which act on the fire both chemically and physically.

Main Features:

  • Highly effective extinguishing agent
  • Environmentally friendly. 
  • Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP)=0
  • Global Warming Potential(GWP)=0
  • Non-toxic
  • Non-corrosive
  • Easy to install
  • No pressure vessels, piping or expensive installation manpower
  • Low maintenance
  • Suitable for Class A – B – C – E fire hazard
  • No damage to electronic equipment
  • Non conductive

The DOMINO SAS detection and extinguishing system also saw its application on the electrical charger dedicated to the charging of electric buses of the municipalized TMB in Barcelona.
