The Victaulic Vortex 1500 Fire Suppression System can effectively be applied in total flooding fire suppression applications in the following areas:

  • Industrial machine spaces such as power generation plants, turbine enclosures, automotive manufacturing, steel foundry 
  • Flammable liquids storage 
  • Data centers, museums, libraries
  • Mining facilities

The system incorporates an open architecture design and is fully compatible with automatic hazard detection systems and is adaptable for remote manual activation if required. A system installation and maintenance manual is available containing information on system components and procedures concerning design, operation, inspection, maintenance and recharge. The Victaulic Vortex 1500 system is particularly useful for suppressing fires in hazards where an electrically non-conductive medium is essential or desirable, where clean-up of other agents present a problem, where room integrity is not achievable or where the hazard is normally occupied and requires a non-toxic agent. The basic system consists of stored nitrogen and either potable or captive water supply, or de-ionized water piping along with single or multiple zone control boxes and system emitters in the hazard area. The suspension of water and nitrogen is distributed and discharged into the hazard area through a network of pipe and emitters. System emitters can be installed in either a pendent or sidewall configuration and are positioned via straight-forward cubic-foot/meter coverage volume requirements.
