Sealed Nozzle With Strainer

Description The sealed nozzle is used primarily in ducts and enclosed machinery spaces. The seal portion of the nozzle is a combination line seal and strainer unit. It is used to prevent dirt or vapors from entering the system piping and also to function as a strainer for the system piping. On operation of the carbon dioxide system, the high pressure of the gas released from the cylinders ruptures the thin Component Sealed Nozzle Material Body: Brass Strainer: Monel Thread Size/Type 1/2 in. NPT Female sealing disc, allowing an unobstructed flow of gas to the internal discharge nozzle. The advantage of the sealed nozzle is that it does not require disassembly of the system piping to clean the strainer or replace a ruptured sealing disc. This is accomplished by removing the hex cap on the nozzle.

Bulkhead Mounting Flange

Description The bulkhead mounting flange, Part No. 42806, is used on the multi-discharge type nozzles. The flange allows the nozzle to be rigidly fastened against a wall or bulkhead of a hazard area, keeping the nozzle outside of the area. This is an advantage on hazard areas where the nozzle cannot be mounted inside the area because of space limitations or interference with moving parts. A typical application is a large exhaust duct where access into the duct is limited. Also available is a sealing plug, Part No. 42293, which is shipped as a separate unit. Should a seal be required between the flange and the mounting surface, the fiber seal, Part No. 36550, is available.

Lever Release Actuator AP-8 Valve/Selector Valve

Description
Lever Release Actuator: The manual lever release actuator can provide a manual means of agent cylinder actuation by direct manual actuation of its pull lever or cable actuation when used in conjunction with a remote manual pull station. In three or more cylinder systems, a connecting link is required to provide simultaneous actuation of both lever release actuators. Manual actuation is accomplished by pulling the valve hand lever. The lever design contains a forged mechanical detent which secures the lever in the open position when actuated. Cable pull actuation is accomplished by using a remote manual pull station. The remote manual pull station system must provide the components necessary to meet the actuator lever traveling requirements of 7 in. (17.8 cm). Manual actuation for electric or pneumatic selector valves can be accomplished using these lever actuators.

Selector Valves

Description Selector valves are used to direct the flow of carbon dioxide into a single hazard of a multiple hazard system. This series of valves comes equipped with a pressure actuator attached to the top of the valve. To this actuator, a 1/4 in. pressure line can be connected from a cartridge receiver in the detection panel which will supply the required pressure to operate the selector valve. Or, to this actuator, an adaptor, Part No. 426674, can be attached to accommodate a CV-98 electric actuator, Part No. 423684. The adaptor and electric actuator are part of the selector valve electric actuation kit, Part No. 426893. The Selector Valve Electric Actuation Kit, Part No. 426893, must be purchased separately to provide electric actuation to the selector valve. The selector valve can also be operated manually, by the use of a hand lever attached to the top of the CV-98 electric actuator or by means of a remote manual pull which will operate the hand lever remotely. The valves are available in sizes ranging from 1/2 in. to 4 in. For manual actuation, three types of lever actuators are available.

NOTE: Pneumatic actuation cannot be used if the selector valve has an electric actuator attached. Component Selector Valve (1/2 in.) Material Thread Size/Type Brass 1/2 in.

Manual Pull Box

Description
The pull box on a carbon dioxide system is used to provide mechanical release of the system or directional valve from a manually operated remote station. Two types of pull boxes are available. The latched door type has a solid cast brass door which must be opened to reach the pull handle. The second type has a break glass window and a spring mounted handle which rotates forward for use when the glass is broken. A 3/8 in. female NPT opening is provided at the back of each enclosure for connection of the cable housing. Both types are painted red. A pulley elbow may be attached directly to the back of the pull box, if necessary, to provide immediate changes in pull cable direction. With this option, the pull box can be extended an additional 3 1/2 in. from the mounting surface by using support legs attached to the back of the pull box (one set for latched door type, two sets for break-glass type).

Corner Pulley

Description
The corner pulley is required on a carbon dioxide system whenever a mechanical release pull cable run involves a change in direction. Corner pulleys are installed as part of the cable housing (pipe or conduit) and provide 90 direction changes with minimal force loss and no induced kinking. Two types of corner pulleys are available. One is made of die cast aluminum, has a ball bearing roller, and uses compression fittings for 1/2 in. EMT connections. The second type is made of forged brass and is threaded for 3/8 in. NPT pipe. Two styles of forged brass corner pulleys are available: one with a brass wheel and one with a nylon wheel. Both styles of brass pulleys are watertight. The brass wheel corner pulley is designed for location inside or outside the protected space. The nylon wheel corner pulley is designed for location only outside the hazard space. Thread adaptors are available to simplify the installation.

Check Valves

Description
Check valves are used in main/reserve systems and on systems protecting multiple hazards of different volumes using selector valves to control the direction of agent flow. On main/reserve systems the check valve prevents pressurization of the reserve system manifold by blocking the flow of carbon dioxide from the main system. The check valve allows gas flow from the reserve (if actuated) to pass through into the distribution piping. On selector valve systems, the check valve prevents the cylinders from the selected hazard from pressurizing the manifold of the cylinders required for protecting a larger hazard. Only the cylinders needed for the particular hazard are activated. The check valves are available in sizes from 1/2 in. through 3 in. Three body styles are available: threaded, weld neck flange, and threaded flange. The weld neck flange style valves are supplied with two (2) 600 lb. weld neck, flat faced, forged steel flanges, complete with bolts, nuts and gaskets.

Quartzoid Bulb Actuator

Description
The Quartzoid Bulb Actuator (QBA-5) is a self-contained actuating device designed to be mounted directly in the hazard area. It actuates the system pilot cylinder valves by releasing pressure when the hazard temperature reaches the fixed rating of the quartzoid bulb and causes it to break, releasing the pressure in the actuator. The pressure is routed to the carbon dioxide cylinders through a maximum of 100 ft. (30.5 m) of 1/8 in. pipe. The QBA-5 is available temperature ratings of 135, 175, and 250 F (57, 79, and 121 C). The QBA-5 is a rugged, completely self-contained actuating device, well suited for rough environments. The QBA-5 is available with or without a mounting bracket.

Pneumatic Time Delay

Description In some applications the system discharge must be delayed for a short time following actuation. This is usually in areas where it is necessary to evacuate personnel prior to carbon dioxide discharge. The time delay uses the carbon dioxide pressure to power the factory set delay mechanism. The time delay is installed in the discharge piping, either directly after the control (pilot) cylinder or Component Time Delay (10 second) Material Valve: Brass Accumulator: Steel Valve: Brass Accumulator: Steel Valve: Brass Accumulator: Steel further along the piping. A manual release is incorporated on the time delay valve to allow instant override of the time delay. After the discharge is completed, pressure in the time delay slowly returns to normal and the time delay valve again closes. The length of time delay is factory set and is not adjustable. The time delay is available in delay settings of 10, 30 and 60 seconds. Approvals UL (EX-2968) FM Approved

Pressure Trip

Description
The pressure trip is connected to the actuation or discharge line of a carbon dioxide system. By either pneumatic or manual actuation, the pressure trip can release spring or weight powered devices to close doors and windows, open fuel dump valves, close fire dampers or close fuel supply valves. The pressure trip is constructed of brass with two 1/4 in. NPT fittings for connection to discharge or actuation lines. The link on the pressure switch is released either pneumatically, by agent discharge pressure; or manually, by use of the pull ring. The link then releases the device which performs the auxiliary functions. NOTE: Operating pressure must be a minimum of 75 psi (5.2 bar) with a maximum load of 70 lbs. (31.8 kg).

Header Safety

Description
The header safety is a device used to relieve high pressure build-up in a closed section of piping. If actuation pressure should get inadvertently trapped and should an increase in temperature cause the pressure to rise to a dangerous level, the burst disc in the header safety will rupture, allowing the pressure to escape. The header safety is available with 1/2 in. or 3/4 in. NPT threads.

Carbon Dioxide System Applications Electronic Data Processing Computer Room and Subfloor

Hazard Description

Electronic data processing involves storage, recall and use of information via electronic equipment. Electronic data processing equipment is found in almost every industry today. The equipment is very sensitive and operates within minute tolerances. Additionally, many computer installations are designed with a subfloor area containing data and power cable bundles. Because of the high dollar value of the equipment, the data managed by that equipment and the productivity provided by electronic data processing; rapid detection and efficient fire protection are imperative. Time lost to cleanup and ventilation of a computer room means lost time throughout the company; so these areas require a clean, no residue gas agent that disperses easily. The computer room and subfloor space can be protected with a carbon dioxide suppression system, especially when the computer room is normally unoccupied. Fires can occur as deep seated fires within the computer electrical insulation and in the cable bundles in the subfloor. Paper debris that has been allowed to accumulate in the subfloor is also a source for ignition. Computer room/subfloor protection can be accomplished by installation of a total flood carbon dioxide system. The CO2 system is designed in accordance with National Fire Protection Association Standard 12, 1989 Edition, which states that a 30% concentration must be achieved within two minutes and a design concentration of 50% must be reached within seven minutes. Design concentration must be maintained for a period of not less that twenty minutes. Notice: Factory Mutual (FM) requires a 65% design concentration if the subfloor is constructed of combustible material, or has contents other than cable. FM also requires the design concentration of 65% then be held for a minimum of thirty minutes. The figure below show the piping and nozzle arrangement for a CO2 system protecting a typical computer room/subfloor space.

The CO2 system consists of a cylinder bank, a piping arrangement and a set of discharge nozzles located in the room and subfloor space. Occasionally, drainage is installed in the subfloor area. Provisions must be made for making the drain piping a closed system unless water is present to assist in assuring the necessary concentration.
2-1

Protection Considerations

When the computer room is normally occupied, personnel safety is of first concern. Alarms or warning devices must be located in the room to provide sufficient annunciation of CO2 discharge. In addition, a time delay device should be incorporated in the CO2 system to allow sufficient time for personnel to evacuate the room prior to CO2 discharge. The room and subfloor must be tight to prevent loss of CO2. All air handling equipment must be shut down and dampered prior to system discharge. Do not use the air handling system as a means of evacuating the CO2 after discharge. Smoke detectors are usually employed for early warning of fire to allow manual release of the CO2 system. Thermal detectors are used as a backup automatic system. The authority having jurisdiction may have additional requirements.

Electronic Data Processing Subfloor


Hazard Description Electronic data processing involves storage, recall and use of information via electronic equipment. Electronic data processing equipment is found in almost every industry today. The equipment is very sensitve and operates within minute tolerances. Additionally, many computer installations are designed with a subfloor area containing data and power cable bundles. Because of the high dollar value of the equipment, the data managed by that equipment and the productivity provided by electronic data processing, rapid detection and efficient fire protection are imperative. Time lost to cleanup and ventilation of a computer room means lost time throughout the company; so these areas require a clean, no residue gas agent that disperses easily. Common practice is to protect the computer room with a Halon 1301 suppression system and a carbon dioxide total flood system for protection of the cable bundles in the subfloor space. The following information pertains only to protection of subfloor space with a fixed CO2 fire suppression system. Subfloor fires can occur as deep-seated fires in electrical insulation, in combustible debris accumulated due to poor maintenance, or in the construction material of the subfloor itself. Protection of data processing subfloor spaces can be accomplished with a total flood system. The CO2 system is designed in accordance with National Fire Protection Association Standard No. 12, 1989 Edition. The figure below shows the piping and nozzle arrangement of a CO2 fire suppression system protecting a typical data processing subfloor area.

The CO2 system consists of a cylinder bank and a piping arrangement with a set of low velocity nozzles. Some CO2 loss will occur through cable openings into equipment and through perforated tile. Make a complete evaluation of possible leakage sources and add CO2 to compensate. If leakage is excessive, an extended discharge system must be considered.

2-2

Recommended Protection (Continued)

Subfloor airspaces are often used as a plenum for the air handling system. If the space is used as a plenum, the air handling system MUST be shut down, tightly dampered and the air handling equipment at full rest BEFORE CO2 system discharge or the CO2 will be rapidly exhausted. A 50% design concentration is required for dry electrical fires by NFPA 12. A 30% concentration must be achieved within two minutes and design concentration must be reached within seven minutes. Design concentration must be maintained for a minimum of twenty minutes. Factory Mutual (FM) requires a 65% design concentration if the subfloor is constructed of combustible material or has contents other than cable. FM also requires the design concentration to be held for a minimum of 30 minutes. Occasionally, drainage is installed in a subfloor area. Provisions must be made for making the drain piping a closed system unless water is present. This will assist in assuring the necessary CO2 concentrations. CO2, being heavier than air, will settle into low-lying areas possibly creating a hazard to personnel. Do not use the air handling system as a means of evacuating CO2 after discharge. Often, the data processing equipment cannot be shut down. Since most of this equipment has cooling fans, some CO2 will be drawn from the protected space. Because of this agent loss, a higher CO2 initial concentration or a greater volume of release may be required. Smoke detectors are usually employed for early warning of fire to allow manual release of the CO2 system with thermal detectors used as a backup to allow automatic system release. The authority having jurisdiction may have additional requirements.

Recirculating Turbine Generators


Hazard Description Found both in heavy industry and power companies, turbine generators are usually enclosed recirculating devices. Steam is passed over the turbine blades, spinning the turbine which is attached to a generating device. If an electrical fault occurs in the generator, a deep-seated electrical insulation fire can result. In addition, the generator bearings can overheat, igniting their lubricants. Protection of enclosed recirculating generators can be accomplished with a total flood system. The design of this system should be in accordance with National Fire Protection Association Standard No. 12, 1989 Edition, which addresses the fire protection of rotating electrical equipment. The figure below shows the piping and nozzle arrangement of a carbon dioxide fire suppression system protecting a typical enclosed recirculating generator.

The CO2 system consists of two cylinder banks and two separate piping arrangements. One bank of cylinders is piped to a set of nozzles which give a high initial rate of discharge upon receiving a signal from the detectors. (Note: The detectors must be located in the hot air stream ahead of all coolers.) This discharge rate shall be sufficient to achieve 30% concentration of CO2 within two minutes and design concentration within seven minutes. (Note: Factory Mutual (FM) requires an even higher discharge rate, sufficient to reach 30% concentration in one minute.) The second bank of cylinders is designed to discharge simultaneously at a much slower rate through a separate network of pipe and nozzles. This network provides an extended discharge of CO2 for the generator deceleration period in order to compensate for leakage and maintain an inert atmosphere within the enclosure. A minimum concentration of 30% must be maintained for at least twenty minutes. Multiple generators can be protected by the use of selector valves on common banks of CO2 cylinders. Reserve banks of cylinders are generally required as a common back-up.

2-3

Protection Considerations

Personnel safety is of first concern. Alarms or warning devices must be located in and/or around the hazard area to provide sufficient annunciation of CO2 discharge. A pre-discharge alarm or time delay device may be required to allow personnel time to leave the area. Provisions must be made for venting the CO2 and determining the safety of the atmosphere prior to reoccupation of the hazard area after discharge. Normal leakage from the enclosure should relieve any CO2 pressure build-up. However, in the case of air-tight enclosures, pressure relief venting may be required. Location of nozzles must be in the cold air stream leading to the generator. Incoming air will carry the CO2 to the hazard. Automatic discharge of the CO2 system might be achieved by a tie-in with the customers differential relays which could act as additional detection/actuation sources. The authority having jurisdiction may have additional requirements.

Electrical Cabinets
Hazard Description Found in almost any large structure, including hospitals, heavy industry and high rise buildings, electrical cabinets present a hazard particularly well suited for carbon dioxide protection. A typical electrical cabinet is the focal point of the electrical service for a large building or plant. Virtually all of the incoming service enters at the cabinet and is dispersed, stepped up, stepped down or otherwise controlled at that point. An electrical cabinet may contain fuses, switches, transformers and other electrical equipment along with a large network of cable and wiring. Downtime for the electrical cabinet means downtime for the entire facility. Dry powder or liquid agents can damage sensitive equipment, or require meticulous clean-up causing additional delays in getting the facility back on-line. An air-dispersed gas, carbon dioxide eliminates these problems. Electrical fault is the most common source of ignition in the electrical cabinet. Energized equipment overheats or shorts and ignites insulation causing a deep seated type fire. Protection of electrical cabinets can be accomplished with a total flood system. By injecting a sufficient amount of CO2 to suppress the fire and maintaining the CO2 laden atmosphere to allow a soaking period, even deep-seated insulation fires can be suppressed. The design of this system should be in accordance with National Fire Protection Association Standard No. 12, 1989 Edition, which addresses the fire protection of electrical equipment. NFPA 12 states that a 50% concentration of CO2 is required for dry electrical hazards and that a 30% concentration shall be achieved within two minutes. Design concentration must be achieved within seven minutes and maintained for an additional twenty minutes. Depending on the type of doors the cabinet has, the CO2 system could be designed as either a normal total flood or extended discharge system. Cabinets with loose fitting doors or louver openings will have considerable CO2 leakage. Leakage from a weatherproof cabinet will be much slower. In a reasonably tight cabinet, such as a weatherproof enclosure, the extended discharge may not be necessary as the sealed enclosure allows little leakage and the inert atmosphere will remain until the cabinet is opened and ventilated.

Recommended Protection (Continued)

The figure below shows the piping and nozzle arrangement of a CO2 fire suppression system protecting a typical electrical cabinet of reasonable tightness.

000945

The extended-discharge CO2 system consists of two cylinder banks and two piping arrangements. Upon receiving a signal from the detectors, one bank of cylinders which are piped to a set of nozzles give a high initial rate of discharge, meeting the requirements for reaching design concentration within seven minutes. The second bank of cylinders is piped to a set of smaller nozzles which provide an extended discharge period, maintaining the inert atmosphere for the required twenty minutes. Protection Considerations Personnel safety is the first concern. Discharge alarms should be located in the area of the electrical cabinet to warn nearby personnel of the CO2 discharge. Due to the possibility of CO2 leaking from the cabinet and settling into low lying surrounding areas, all personnel should leave the immediate cabinet area until the space can be completely ventilated. Normal leakage from the cabinet should relieve any CO2 pressure build-up. However, in the case of an air-tight enclosure, pressure relief venting may be required. Electrical power and any ventilation must be shut down prior to discharge. Also, many electrical cabinets have cooling fans to draw air into or out of the enclosure. These must be shut down and an extended discharge system should be considered to allow for the spin-down time and unclosable openings. Electrical cabinets may have completely open interiors or may be compartmentalized. If the construction of the cabinet is a series of compartments, at least one CO2 nozzle and detector must be installed in each compartment. In exceptionally large electrical cabinets, selector valves could be included in the system which could direct the discharge to only the section involved. The authority having jurisdiction may have additional requirements.

Transformers
Hazard Description Transformers are found in heavy industry and may sit in the open or in vaults. Transformers located in the open, where it is impractical to flood the room, are protected by locally applying carbon dioxide over the surfaces using the rate by area method. Transformers within a vault are treated as a surface type total flood hazard. There is a possibility that a heated transformer core in either a transformer located in a vault or in the open could produce a deep seated fire in the insulation. Leakage of oil could be ignited by an electrical fault or insulation within the transformer could ignite due to an overheated core. Transformers within an enclosure or vault can be protected by total flooding the enclosure with CO2 in accordance with National Fire Protection Association Standard 12, 1989 Edition, which states that a 50% concentration is required for deep seated dry electrical fires and that a 30% concentration shall be achieved within two minutes. The 50% design concentration must be achieved within seven minutes and held for an additional twenty minute period.

Wave Solder Machines


Hazard Description Employed in the manufacture of electronics and cans, the wave solder machine presents a multi-faceted hazard to the fire protection professional. The wave solder device consists of an enclosure housing flux tubs, preheaters and solder pots; along with a motorized conveyor which transports parts through the machine. Attached to this enclosure is a fume exhaust system which must also be protected. The most common fire in a wave solder machine is a wetted surface fire, which can quickly ignite the flux tubs, resulting in the addition of a liquid-indepth fire. Ignition occurs when an excess amount of flux on the parts is ignited by the preheaters or molten solder. The wave solder machine enclosure can be treated as a total flood hazard if the conveyor openings on either end of the wave solder machine are small. Access doors along the sides of the machine, however, must always be in the closed position if total flood is to be considered. In cases where access doors are left open, or are opened on a regular basis, the hazard should be protected on a local application basis. Regardless of the machine enclosure situation, the exhaust system is considered a total flood hazard. The design of the protection systems should be in accordance with National Fire Protection Association Standard No. 12, 1989 Edition. The figure below shows the piping and nozzle arrangement of a total flood carbon dioxide fire suppression system protecting a typical wave solder machine which normally operates with the access doors closed.

Recommended Protection

000948

The total flood system consists of a single cylinder bank and a single piping arrangement. The piping is external to the enclosure to avoid interference with the conveyor system and to allow easy maintenance inside the wave solder machine. Nozzles are sealed flanged type which attach to the outside of a bulkhead or duct and direct CO2 into the hazard through a small opening. The total flood system for the enclosure shall achieve a 34% CO2 concentration within one minute. The duct system shall achieve a 65% concentration within one minute.
2-11

Recommended Protection (Continued)

The figure below shows a typical local application CO2 system for a wave solder machine which normally operates with the access doors open. The piping network runs inside the enclosure with nozzles applying CO2 directly to the flux tubs, preheaters and solder pots. CO2 discharge shall be a minimum of 30 seconds.

000949

Protection Considerations

In either the total flood or the local application systems, consideration must be given to personnel safety. CO2 discharge should be coupled to an alarm system to warn workers in the immediate area of system activation. While the CO2 is being released in a confined space, CO2 escaping from the enclosure and settling into low-lying areas could be a hazard to personnel. All heating sources, pumps, conveyors and exhaust systems involved must be shut down before CO2 system discharge. In addition, any exhaust ducts must be dampered upon system discharge. Electrical or pneumatic provisions should be made for these operations. Thermal detection for automatic system release is recommended. If the conveyor system carries parts to another room or other machines, fire doors or shutters should be installed to prevent transmission of fire from machine to machine or room to room via burning parts on a conveyor. The authority having jurisdiction may have additional requirements.

Industrial Fryers
Hazard Description The food industry prepares many types of foods by frying in heated cooking oil. Several types of food that lend themselves to deep fat frying are potato chips, pizza, nutmeats, doughnuts, poultry and fish products. The heated oil is often contained in a vat that is covered by a hood with an associated exhaust system. A conveyor belt usually transports the product through the heated oil where it exits the fryer onto a drain area. A fire condition exists when the thermostatic control used to maintain a predetermined cooking oil temperature fails. This allows the temperature of the oil to rise above its auto-ignition point, causing ignition. Protection of a fryer can be accomplished with a combination total flood/local application suppression system. The design of the system shall be in accordance with National Fire Protection Association Standard 12, 1989 Edition, which states that the fryer vat with its hood in the lowered position requires a 34% concentration which shall be achieved within one minute. In addition, Ansul recommends the carbon dioxide discharge to continue for a period of not less than three minutes due to the possibility of the oil reflashing before the temperature drops below the auto-ignition point. The exhaust duct is protected by the total flood method, achieving a 65% concentration within one minute. The drainboard portion, including related pumps, are treated as a local application type hazard, with the CO2 discharge continuing for a minimum of 30 seconds. The figure below illustrates a carbon dioxide suppression system protecting a typical potato chip fryer.

Protection Considerations

Personal safety must be provided using alarms or warning devices located in and around the hazard area. Uncloseable openings must be held to a minimum. Provisions must be made for venting the CO2 and determining the safety of the atmosphere prior to reoccupation of the hazard area after CO2 discharge. Thermal detection for automatic release is recommended. The authority having jurisdiction may have additional requirements.

Dip Tanks
Hazard Description Many manufacturers use dip tanks for various processes in their plants. Metal fabrication, electronics, automotive and railway operations may use dip tanks in their daily work. A dip tank may be a simple hand-held operation or may involve a complex overhead monorail or hoist. Some tanks are enclosed by a hinged lid, some are open. Most have a drain board or drip area which may or may not be enclosed. Overheated circulating pumps, flammable liquids heated beyond flashpoint, or sparks from machinery are all common sources of ignition for dip tanks. Two types of fires can result: liquid in depth fires in the tank itself or wetted surface fires on the dipped material and in the drain board/drip area. Protection of dip tanks and associated components can be accomplished by a local application system. The design of this system should be in accordance with National Fire Protection Association Standard No. 12, 1989 Edition. A typical dip tank carbon dioxide suppression system is shown in the figure below.

Sources of Ignition and Types of Fires

Recommended Protection

000951

The carbon dioxide system consists of one cylinder bank and one piping arrangement. Overhead protection is used in this instance. Local application methods apply CO2 directly to the surface of the burning material, rather than flooding an enclosure. The CO2 discharge time shall be a minimum of 30 seconds. Essential to the success of the fire suppression system is the shutdown of all pumps, motorized conveyors and ventilation fans. If the dip tank has an exhaust duct, it must be dampered to allow sufficient CO2 concentration for fire suppression. In some situations, the dipped parts are carried through an oven for drying. The authority having jurisdiction may require fire protection for the oven also. The oven can be protected by a separate CO2 system or by the dip tank system with a selector valve system.

Protection Considerations

Personnel safety must be provided for with alarms or warning devices located in and around the hazard area. A pre-discharge alarm or time delay device may be required to allow personnel time to leave the hazard area. Provisions must be made for venting the CO2 and determining the safety of the atmosphere prior to reoccupation of the hazard area after discharge, and consideration given to low lying areas within the plant where CO2 may tend to settle. Thermal detection for automatic system release is recommended. Protection of a dip tank requires applying CO2 to ALL wetted sections of the hazard, including any conveyor system, drainboards and drip areas. If cleaning tanks or flammable materials are stored in the vicinity of the dip tank, they should also be protected. If at all possible, enclose the hazard wherever production will permit. The authority having jurisdiction may have additional requirements.

OPEN FACE WET BENCH AND PROCESSING TOOL PROTECTION GUIDE Page 1

Introduction The information contained in this guide provide the guidelines for designing, installing and inspecting fixed high pressure CO2 fire suppression systems for the protection of wet benches and other processing tools used in the fabrication of semiconductor devices. This guide contains specific design methods and guidelines that apply to surface and subsurface protection of open face wet benches. General design information is also included for protection of other areas of the wet benches or processing tools; however, for specific design methods of these areas, the designer should design in accordance with the latest edition of the National Fire Protection Association Standard on Carbon Dioxide Extinguishing Systems (NFPA 12), Ansuls Carbon Dioxide Systems Design Manual, the requirements of the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), and customer specification as applicable. Acceptance of any system is subject to the review and requirements of the Authority Having Jurisdiction. In open style tools, the application of these guidelines are limited to tools with air exhaust flow rates not exceeding 150 cfm/linear ft. These guidelines apply to the fire suppression portion of the system only. To complete the system it is necessary to incorporate a fire detection and control system with the appropriate ancillary equipment and devices. Only listed equipment that has been specifically evaluated for this application may be used. Factory Mutual has Approved for fire detection in either an open face wet bench or process equipment, the Fire Sentry Corporations Model FS7-130-SX controller module, the S72173-C flame detector using firmware version 3720-0006, and the FS7-2173 flame detector using firmware 3720-1001, also Santa Barbara Dual Spectrums Model PM-5SX and PM-9SBE flame detectors. Use of the detection and control equipment should be in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations. Consult the Authority Having Jurisdiction for specific detection and control requirements for the particular application. Note: An FMRC Approved Ansul control panel must be interfaced with the wet bench fire detection system to be used as a releasing device control unit for the fire suppression system. Wet bench protection utilizing high pressure CO2 uses the same design requirements as stated in the Design section for total flooding and local application with additional limitations and conditions stated in this guide. General Protection Requirements The suppression system should be designed to discharge with the ventilation/exhaust system in continuous operation. Except for the electrical power necessary to maintain operation of the exhaust/ventilation system, the electrical power supply to the tool must be interlocked to shut down upon system discharge. Total agent supply demand for each extinguishing system should be based on a one shot discharge of the system over the entire tool. The method of determining agent quantity and recommended duration of discharge can be found in the appropriate section of this guide. It is recommended that each tool be protected by an individual fire extinguishing system; however, if acceptable to the AHJ, a single system may protect a group of tools if the agent supply is sized for the largest hazard and an equally sized connected reserve is provided. The AHJ should be consulted to determine connected reserve supply requirements. If acceptable to the AHJ, tools exceeding 8 ft. (2.4 m) in length may be zoned providing the working surface of a wet bench or other processing tool is not subdivided into multiple zones of discharge. A physical barrier is required to separate each zone, and each zone should be provided with a separate agent supply and connected reserve or the system should be sized for the entire bench and provided with an equally sized connected reserve. If acceptable to the AHJ, a maximum 30 second time delay prior to discharge of the extinguishing system over the working surface may be used. If acceptable to the AHJ, a maximum 30 second time delay prior to discharge may be used in other areas of a tool in a single protection zone system. Materials used in the installation of the system must be suitable for the type of environment that they will be located in. All equipment and materials of construction are subject to approval by the customer and the AHJ. For corrosive environments (environments containing acids, solvents, etc.) only the Corrosion Resistant D nozzle should be used.* All pipe and hangers should be protected against corrosion by an appropriate protective coating or sheath. All pipe joints, hangers, and fasteners should be protected by an appropriate corrosion protected finish or covering. The protective coating or covering should be suitable for the particular environments that they will be subjected to. All pipe and fittings must be cleaned of all chips, oil, and dirt prior to installing. General CO2 System Design Guidelines The tool subsurface (plenum) area should be protected using total flooding application only, designed to achieve a minimum concentration of 50 percent within 1 minute. The quantity of CO2 required should be adjusted to compensate for the air exhaust flow rate of the processing equipment.
*FM APPROVAL OF THE (CR) D NOZZLE IS LIMITED TO NON-CORROSIVE ENVIRONMENTS.

OPEN FACE WET BENCH AND PROCESSING TOOL PROTECTION GUIDE Page 2

General CO2 System Design Guidelines (Continued) If the CO2 system is arranged to protect the working surface area and plenum simultaneously, the discharge rate for the plenum should be calculated in accordance with the 1998 Edition of NFPA 12 section 3-3.2.3. For working surface open style tools, design the CO2 system on a local application basis, rate-by-volume method, for a minimum discharge time of 30 seconds. The basic system discharge rate of 1 LB/min/cu. ft. of assumed volume may be proportionately reduced to account for barriers that surround the working surface, such as: side panels, back walls, and headcase, in accordance with the 1998 Edition of NFPA 12 section 3-5.3.1. Use the Open Face Wet Bench CO2 System Design Guidelines in this guide in conjunction with the Ansul Carbon Dioxide Systems Design Manual and the ANSCALC version 2 HYDRAULIC CALCULATION PROGRAM for total flooding application design of wet bench subsurface (plenum areas and local application design of open face wet bench working surfaces. For tools provided with mini-environment enclosures, use the Ansul Carbon Dioxide System Design Manual and the ANSCALC program to design the CO2 system on a total flooding basis to achieve a minimum concentration of 50 percent within 1 minute. The quantity of CO2 required should be adjusted to compensate for the air exhaust flow rate of the wet bench. Always use the CR D Nozzle and corrosion protected pipe, fittings, and hardware in corrosive environments or where contamination of the process is an issue.* For protection of wet bench headcase and other compartments, use the Ansul Carbon Dioxide System Design Manual and the ANSCALC program to design the CO2 system on a total flooding basis to achieve a minimum concentration of 50 percent within 1 minute in each compartment. Open Face Wet Bench CO2 Fire Protection System Design Guidelines Open face wet bench protection utilizing high pressure CO2 uses the same design requirements as stated in the Design section of the Ansul Carbon Dioxide Systems manual for total flooding and local application with the additional limitations stated here: Surface area of open face wet bench to be protected by using local application rate by volume method only. Use only the CR D nozzle, Part Nos. 422647 through 422659.* Under bench area (Plenum) to be protected using total flooding application only. For non-corrosive environments, use the standard D nozzle, Part Nos. 44651 through 44663. For corrosive environments, use the CR D nozzle, Part Nos. 422647 through 422659. See component sheet F-96156 for chemical resistance guidelines.* 33 in. (84 cm) maximum height of surface area nozzle from lowest point of nozzle to working surface of wet bench. 8 ft. (2.4 m) maximum spacing between nozzles used for total flooding under bench (plenum). Nozzle to be mounted against side wall of plenum and aimed to discharge horizontally. Additional nozzles, if necessary, are to be spaced accordingly. 600 psi (41.4 bar) minimum nozzle pressure required for both the local application and total flooding. When designing the local application rate by volume method system, always use 0.1 ft. (0.3 m) as hazard height. Design concentration must be a minimum of 50%. Minimum of 60 F (16 C) to a maximum of 80 F (27 C) storage temperature range. Maximum air exhaust flow rate of the wet bench cannot exceed 150 CFM/linear ft.

A sample problem is included to help explain the design procedure. Hazard: Open Face Wet Bench Work Area: Length: 7 ft. 7 in. (2.3 m) Width: 2 ft. 7 in. (.8 m) Plenum Area: Length: 7 ft. 7 in. (2.3 m) Width: 2 ft. 7 in (.8 m) Height: 1 ft. 11 in. (.6 m) First, determine the CO2 requirements for the work area. The design requirements will be calculated by the local application Rate by Volume Method. Working Surface Protection Local Application Rate of Volume Method Step No. 1 Determine volume Length 7.6 ft. (2.3 m) x Width 2.6 ft. (.8 m) x Height 0.1 ft. (2.5 cm) = 1.9 cu. ft. (.05 cu. m). Note: The height of 0.1 ft. (2.5 cm) is always used for calculation purposes. Step No. 2 Determine Assumed Volume Based on standard design requirements, 2 ft. (.6 m) must be added to the height of the hazard and 2 ft. (.6 m) must be added to the width. This is required because these are not enclosed by actual walls. Assumed Volume = Length 7.6 ft. (2.3 m) x Width 4.6 ft. (1.4 m) x Height 2.1 ft. (.6 m) = 73.4 cu. ft. (2.1 cu. m). Step No. 3 Determine % of closed perimeter The % of closed perimeter is determined by dividing the actual closed perimeter by the total perimeter and then multiplying by 100. The actual closed perimeter is 7.6 ft. (2.3 m) + 1.7 ft. (.5 m) + 1.7 ft. (.5 m) =11.0 ft. (3.4 m). The assumed volume total perimeter is 7.6 ft. (2.3 m) + 7.6 ft. (2.3 m) + 4.6 ft. (1.4 m) + 4.6 ft. (1.4 m) = 24.4 ft. (7.4 m). 11.0 ft. (3.4 m) divided by 24.4 ft. (7.4 m) = 0.46 x 100 = 46% closed perimeter. Step No. 4 Determine Nozzle Discharge Rate Refer to the chart in Figure 16, Page 6-12 of this section. As determined in Step No. 2, 46% closed perimeter requires a minimum flow rate of 0.66 #/min./CF. Step No. 5 Determine Total Agent Required Based on the above steps, the total agent required for local application rate by volume, can now by determined. Total agent required = Assumed Volume x Flow Rate per Minute Per Cu. Ft. x 1.4 (liquid factor) x .5 (minimum discharge time) 73.4 cu. ft. (assumed volume) x 0.66 (flow rate per min. per cu. ft.) = 48.4 lb./minute. 48.4 lb./min. x 1.4 (liquid factor) x .5 (minimum discharge time in minutes) = 33.9 lbs of agent required. Step No. 6 Determine Number of Nozzles Required Based on the limitation listed above, the maximum height from the face of the nozzle to the working surface of the wet bench is 33 in. (84 cm). In this example, the nozzle will be mounted at a height of 30 in. (76 cm). Referring to Figure 9 on Page 6-6, at 30 in. (76 cm) height, the D nozzle has a FM flow rate of 20.0 lb./minute.

OPEN FACE WET BENCH AND PROCESSING TOOL PROTECTION GUIDE Page 4

Open Face Wet Bench CO2 Fire Protection System Design Guidelines (Continued) Working Surface Protection Local Application Rate of Volume Method (Continued) 48.4 (lb./min) divided by 20.0 (flow rate per nozzle) = 2.4 nozzles required. This number must be rounded up to the next whole number of 3. Therefore, the surface protection requires 33.9 lbs. of agent and 3 nozzles. Nozzles are to be mounted and aimed per the standard local application guidelines. See Section 6, Pages 6-5 6-6. Now, determine the total flooding requirements for the plenum area (below bench). Plenum Area Protection Total Flooding Step No. 1 Determine Hazard Volume The under bench volume is Length 7.6 ft. (2.3 m) x Width 2.6 ft. (.8 m)) x Height 1.9 ft. (.6 m) = 37.5 cu. ft. (1.1 cu m). Step No. 2 Determine Initial Quantity of Agent Required Refer to Volume Factors Chart on Page 6-2, Figure 2. For volumes up to 140 cu. ft. (3.9 cu. m), the volume factor of 0.072 must be used. 37.5 cu. ft. x 0.072 (volume factor) = 2.7 lbs. of agent The next step is to increase the amount of agent if the minimum design concentration is greater than 34%. Referring to the limitations stated above, the minimum design concentration must be 50%. Step No. 3 Determine Adjusted Quantity of Agent Required is determined that a 50% design concentration is It required. Based on the Material Conversion Factors Chart on Page 6-2, Figure 3, the conversion factor for 50% design concentration is 1.6. The adjusted quantity of agent required is determined by: 2.7 lbs. (agent quantity) x 1.6 (conversion factor) = 4.3 lbs. of agent required Step No. 4 Ventilation Requirements This wet bench has 1000 CFM of air moving through it. The additional ventilation adjustment quantity is determined by: Ventilation Adjustment Quantity = CFM x Volume Factor x Conversion Factor x Discharge Time in Minutes 1000 (CFM) x 0.072 (volume factor) x 1.6 (conversion factor) x .5 (discharge time) = 57.6 additional lbs. of agent required Step No. 5 Amount of Total Flooding Agent Required Add the quantity of agent determined in Step Nos. 3 and 4. 4.3 lbs. + 57.6 lbs. = 61.9 lbs. required for total flooding system. Step No. 6 Determine Number of Nozzles Required Based on the limitations stated above, the maximum spacing for total flooding wet bench nozzles is 8 ft.. This example hazard is 7.6 ft. (2.3 m) long, therefore one (1) nozzle is required. Based on FM approval testing, the total flooding D nozzle should be mounted at the sidewall in the under bench area to discharge horizontally. Additional nozzles are to be spaced no greater than 8 ft. (2.4 m) apart. Total Wet Bench System Requirements The total quantity of agent required = 33.9 lbs. (local application) + 61.9 lbs. (total flooding) = 95.8 lbs. total. Standard hydraulic calculations can now be performed to determine pipe sizes and nozzle orifice sizes. NOTE: Verification shall be made from the hydraulic calculations that the minimum discharge nozzle pressure of 600 psi and the flowrate as calculated for the specific height is achieved. A flowrate in excess of that calculated for the discharge nozzle height may cause a splash hazard upon discharge of the carbon dioxide fire extinguishing system. Installation Guidelines Always use the CR D nozzle in corrosive type areas.* Make certain blow off cap is in place on the installed nozzle. Use installation tool, Part No. 426206, for proper blow off cap installation. All piping joints (fittings) and piping located in the corrosive environment must be protected using extruded Teflon tubing (TFE) or heat shrink tubing (TFE). When using heat shrink tubing, make certain all exposed threads are covered. If extruded Teflon or heat shrink tubing are not used, the recommended piping is stainless steel. Follow all other installation piping requirements as stated in the Installation section of the Ansul Carbon Dioxide System Design Manual. NOTE: Make certain all pipe and fittings are clean of any chips, oil, or dirt prior to installing. Inspection Inspection should be performed in accordance with the Ansul Carbon Dioxide System Design Manual and NFPA 12.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION The Ansul Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fire Suppression System is an engineered system utilizing either a fixed nozzle agent distribution network, hose reel(s), or a combination of both. The system is Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) listed, Factory Mutual (FM) approved, and designed in accordance with the latest revision of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 12, Carbon Dioxide Extinguishing Systems. When properly designed, the carbon dioxide system will extinguish fire in Class A, B, and C hazards by displacing the air containing oxygen which supports combustion. The system can be actuated by detection and control equipment for automatic system operation along with providing local and remote

manual operation as needed. Accessories are used to provide alarms, delay discharge, ventilation control, door closures, or other auxiliary shutdown or functions. Due to the method of extinguishment, personnel occupying areas protected by carbon dioxide systems must be evacuated prior to system discharge. For this reason, discharge time delays and alarms are mandatory for occupied hazards. Two or more hazard areas can be protected with a single group of agent storage containers (cylinders) by means of directional or selector valves. A system installation and maintenance manual is available containing information on system components and procedures concerning design, maintenance, and recharge. The system is installed and serviced by authorized distributors that are trained by the manufacturer. Basic Use: The Ansul Carbon Dioxide 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 presents a problem; or where the hazard obstructions require the use of a gaseous agent. The following are typical hazards protected by car-

bon dioxide systems: Printing presses Vaults Open pits Dip tanks Spray booths Ovens Engine rooms Coating machines Process equipment Hoods and ducts Flammable gas or liquid storage areas Generators Composition and Materials: The basic system consists of agent (CO2) stored in high strength alloy steel cylinders. Various types of actuators, either manual or automatic, are available for release of the agent into the hazard area. The agent is distributed and discharged into the hazard area through a network of piping and nozzles. Each nozzle is equipped with a fixed orifice designed to deliver a uniform discharge to the protected area. On large hazards, where three or more cylinders are required, a screwed or welded pipe manifold assembly is employed. The manifold assembly is connected to each cylinder by means of a flexible discharge bend and check valve assembly. Additional equipment includes: remote manual pull stations, corner pulleys, door closures, pressure trips, bells and sirens, transfer switches, time delays, pneumatic switches, and weighing devices. All or some are required when designing a total system. CO2 Agent Carbon dioxide is an effective fire extinguishing agent that can be used on many types of fires. It is effective for surface fires, such as flammable liquids and most solid combustible materials. It expands at a ratio of 450 to 1 by volThe ten-point Spec-Data format has been reproduced from publications copyrighted by CSI, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, and used by permission of The Construction Specifications Institute, Alexandria, VA 22314.

ume. For fire suppression purposes the discharge is designed to raise the carbon dioxide concentration in the hazard. This displaces the air containing oxygen which supports combustion, and results in fire extinguishment. Other attributes are its high degree of effectiveness, its excellent thermal stability, and freedom from deterioration. It has a low toxicity classification by Underwriters Laboratories (Group 5a). Cylinders The cylinders are constructed, tested, and marked in accordance with applicable Dept. of Transportation (DOT) and the U.S. Bureau of Explosives specifications. Cylinder Assembly The cylinder assembly is of steel construction with a red enamel or epoxy finish. Five sizes are available to meet specific needs. Each is equipped with a pressure seat-type CV90 valve. The valve is of forged brass and is attached to the cylinder providing a leak tight seal. The valve also includes a safety pressure relief device which provides relief at 2650 to 3000 psi (18269 to 20682 kPa). Cylinder charging pressure is 850 psi at 70 F (5861 kPa at 21 C) with a filling density of not more than 68% of its water capacity. The cylinders are shipped with a maintenance record card and shipping cap attached. The cap is attached to the threaded collar on the neck of each cylinder to protect the valve while in transit. The cylinder serial number along with the full and empty weight capacities are stamped near the neck of each cylinder. Electric Actuator Electric actuation of an agent cylinder is accomplished by an electric actuator interfaced through an AUTOPULSE Control System. This actuator can be used in hazardous environments where the ambient temperature range is between 0 F and 130 F (18 C and 130 C). In auxiliary or override applications, a manual override valve actuator can be installed on top of the electric actuator. An arming tool is required to reset (arm) the electric actuator after operation. Manual/Pneumatic Actuators Several types of manual/pneumatic actuators are available for override manual/pneumatic actuation on the electric actuator or direct manual/ pneumatic actuation on the cylinder

valve. Manual actuation is accomplished by pulling the hand lever on the actuator. The lever design contains a forged mechanical detent which secures the lever in the open position when actuated. A manuallocal actuator is available to provide either a manual or pneumatic means for a remote pressure release from a remote pressure device. Direct manual actuation of this actuator is accomplished by pulling the ring pin and depressing the red palm button on top of the actuator. Detection System The AUTOPULSE Control System is used where an automatic electronic control system is required to actuate a fixed carbon dioxide system. This control system is used to control a single fixed fire suppression or alarm system based on inputs received from fire detection devices. The detection circuits can be configured using cross, counting, independent or priority-zone (counting) concepts. The control system has been tested to the applicable FCC Rules and Regulations for Class A Computing devices. Nozzles Nozzles are designed to direct the discharge of carbon dioxide in a liquid and gaseous state using the stored pressure from the cylinders. The system design specifies the orifice size to be used for proper flow rate and distribution pattern. The nozzle selection depends on the hazard and location to be protected. Both low velocity and high velocity nozzles may be used for total flooding. Low velocity nozzles are generally used for direct application to a flammable liquid fire. Both types of nozzles can be adapted for a specific hazard by sizing the orifice to achieve the designed flow rate and concentration. Standard nozzles are painted red or are natural brass, depending on type. Optional chrome plating is also available. All are corrosion resistant and, where the hazard warrants, are equipped with blow-off caps or sealing discs. Limitations: The carbon dioxide system must be designed and installed within the guidelines of the manufacturers design, installation, recharge, and maintenance manual. The ambient temperature limitations are 0 F to 130 F (18 C to 54 C) for total flooding and 32 F to 120 F (0 C to 49 C) for local applica-

tions. All AUTOPULSE Control Systems are designed for indoor applications and for temperature ranges between 32 F and 120 F (0 C and 49 C). 4.

General Information
CARBON DIOXIDE Carbon dioxide, as an extinguishing agent, has many desirable properties. It will not damage equipment and leaves no residue to be cleaned up. Since it is a gas, carbon dioxide will penetrate and spread to all parts of the protected hazard. It does not conduct electricity and, therefore, can be used on live electrical equipment. It can be effectively used on most combustible material. Carbon dioxide extinguishes fire by reducing the oxygen concentration to a point where the atmosphere will no longer support combustion. The carbon dioxide concentration must be maintained for a sufficient period to allow the maximum temperature to be reduced below the auto-ignition temperature of the burning material. Carbon dioxide is most effective against flammable liquid fires. For most flammable liquids, reduction of the oxygen concentration to 15% (from the normal 21%) will be sufficient to extinguish the fire. For Class A (wood, and paper) combustibles, a reduction to 15% will control the fire. Some materials, such as acetylene and ethylene oxide, require a greater reduction of oxygen concentration for extinguishment. Still other materials, such as cellulose nitrate and metal hydrides, which do not require oxygen as they burn, cannot be extinguished by use of carbon dioxide. TYPES OF SYSTEMS There are two basic types of systems: total flooding and local application. Total Flooding A total flooding system normally consists of a fixed supply of carbon dioxide connected to fixed piping with nozzles to direct the agent into an enclosed space about the hazard. In a total flooding system, the space around the hazard must be tight enough to hold the required percentage of carbon dioxide concentration long enough to extinguish the fire. Local Application A local application system consists of a fixed supply of carbon dioxide, piping, and nozzles to direct the agent at the hazard independent of any enclosure that may exist. The nozzles are arranged to discharge the carbon dioxide directly onto the burning material.

TYPES OF ACTUATION There are four basic types of actuation for carbon dioxide systems: pneumatic, mechanical, electrical, and rate of rise (H.A.D.). Pneumatic

PERSONNEL SAFETY
!

CAUTION

The discharge of carbon dioxide into an enclosed space can create a dangerous oxygen deficiency. It can also reduce visibility to a point where exits are difficult to locate by persons attempting to evacuate the area. Any use of carbon dioxide in an occupied space should provide for the prompt evacuation of personnel and resuscitation of anyone trapped in the hazard area. Time delays, training, signs, alarms, and breathing apparatus should be provided to the personnel involved.

Pneumatic actuation utilizes gas pressure from either a remote cartridge actuator or from a cartridge located in a control panel such as an ANSUL AUTOMAN II-C release. A pneumatic actuator is installed on top of the CV-90 cylinder valve. The gas pressure forces the piston of the pneumatic actuator down, which in turn forces the cylinder valve to open, releasing the carbon dioxide from the cylinder, through the piping and out the nozzles. On a CV-98 valve, a 1/4 in. actuation line is attached to the 1/4 in. port on the side of the valve. Pneumatic pressure from the ANSUL AUTOMAN II-C or pilot cylinder opens the valve through this port. Mechanical Mechanical actuation is accomplished by either a local/manual override or a lever actuator mounted on top of the cylinder valve. By manually depressing the strike button on the local/manual override or rotating the lever on the lever actuator, the cylinder valve can be opened, allowing the carbon dioxide to discharge through the piping and nozzles.

4-1

Section 4 General Information 6-19-98 REV. 1 TYPES OF ACTUATION (Continued) Electrical Electrical automatic actuation of the CV-90 cylinder valve, through an approved control panel, can be accomplished by using an HF electric actuator. Electrical automatic actuation of the CV-98 cylinder valve can be accomplished by using a CV-98 electrical actuator. NOTE: CV-98 and HF actuators cannot be mixed on the same release circuit. Both styles of actuator are energized by an electric signal from the detection control panel. When using either style of electric actuator, pneumatic or mechanical actuating devices can also be attached as a secondary means of actuation. Rate of Rise (H.A.D.) Another type of automatic actuation can be accomplished by the use of a heat actuated device (H.A.D.). This device is designed to sense abrupt changes in temperature caused by fire. This temperature rise causes a small increase in pressure in the pneumatic detection circuit which in turn actuates a mechanical device mounted on top of the cylinder valve. Mechanical (Fusible Link) The mechanical detection system consists of a mechanical release enclosure which houses the release mechanism and a nitrogen cartridge. The release mechanism is actuated when the fusible link wire rope network, normally under tension, is relaxed, due to the link separating because of heat in the hazard area. When the link separates, the release operates, puncturing the seal in the nitrogen cartridge. This nitrogen pressure will then operate the pneumatic actuator located on the cylinder valve. This will cause the carbon dioxide to be released into the piping network and discharged out the nozzles.

TYPES OF DETECTION There are three types of automatic detection available for carbon dioxide systems. One type is pneumatic (H.A.D.), one type is electric (control panel), and the other type is mechanical (fusible link). H.A.D. (Rate of Rise) The H.A.D. detection system consists of a mechanical control head mounted on the cylinder valve. Pneumatic tubing is run to a pneumatic detector. An increase in temperature of the air surrounding the detector will cause an increase in pressure in the pneumatic detection circuit, which in turn will cause the control head located on the cylinder valve to actuate the valve and release the carbon dioxide into the piping network and out the discharge nozzles. Electric Electric operation of the carbon dioxide system is obtained through the use of electronic control systems which monitor and control various system functions. Detection devices available are: ionization smoke detectors, photoelectric smoke detectors, fixed temperature detectors, rate-of-rise heat detectors, flame detectors, or combustible vapor detectors. When a detector senses a fire, a signal is sent to the control panel. The panel in turn sends an electric signal to the actuator located on the cylinder valve. The actuator opens the cylinder valve causing the carbon dioxide to be released into the piping network and discharged out the nozzles.

Section 5

Planning
One of the key elements for fire protection is to correctly define the hazard and choose the best application method. This section is divided into two sub-sections: Application Methods and Hazard Analysis. HAZARD ANALYSIS A thorough hazard analysis is required to determine the type and quantity of protection required. It is important to cover each element and accurately record the information. This information will be used to determine the size and type of carbon dioxide system required and also to determine at a later date if any changes were made to the hazard after the system was installed. Record size of hazard, any obstructions, unclosable openings, and anything else that would concern system performance. Review each of the following criteria: Hazard Type Briefly describe the types of hazards being protected. If protecting prefabricated booths or machines, record the manufacturer model number and anything unique about the hazard. Hazard Dimensions Sketch hazard and record all pertinent dimensions including all interior walls, location of doors and windows, and any permanent structures which may interfere with piping or discharge pattern. Unclosable Openings For enclosures that have unclosable openings, the following rules must be observed when total flooding: For surface fires, such as occur with flammable liquids, the total area of unclosable openings must not exceed 3% of the volume of the enclosure. These unclosable openings must be compensated for by an additional quantity of carbon dioxide equal to the anticipated loss during a oneminute holding time. If the hazard could result in a deep-seated fire, any opening that cannot be closed at the time of extinguishment shall be compensated for by the addition of carbon dioxide equal in volume to the expected leakage volume during the extinguishing period. If leakage is appreciable, consideration shall be given to an extended discharge system.

APPLICATION METHODS Two types of approved application methods are available with the carbon dioxide system: total flooding and local application. Total Flooding Total flooding is defined as a system consisting of a fixed supply of carbon dioxide permanently connected to fixed piping, with fixed nozzles arranged to discharge carbon dioxide into an enclosed space or enclosure about the hazard. The enclosure must be adequate to contain the discharge of agent to achieve the required carbon dioxide concentration. Examples of this type of enclosure include rooms, vaults, and machine enclosures. Local Application Local application is defined as a system consisting of a fixed supply of carbon dioxide permanently connected to a system of fixed piping with nozzles arranged so as to discharge the agent directly into the fire. Local application systems are used for the suppression of surface fires in flammable liquids, gases, and shallow solids where the hazard is not enclosed or where the enclosure does not conform to the requirements for total flooding. Examples of hazards that may be successfully protected by local application systems include dip tanks, quench tanks, oil-filled electric transformer, etc. Local application systems are divided into two types: rate-by-area and rate-by-volume. Rate-by-area method of system design is used where the fire hazard consists primarily of flat surfaces or low-level objects associated with horizontal surfaces. The rate-by-volume method of system design is used where the fire hazard consists of three-dimensional irregular objects that cannot be easily reduced to equivalent surface areas.

Section 5 Planning

HAZARD ANALYSIS (Continued) Unclosable Openings (Continued) Openings leading to adjacent areas containing hazards can be protected in several ways. The opening may be equipped with automatic closures operated by pressure trip devices which close the openings upon system actuation. Or, screening nozzles may be installed at the opening areas to prevent fire from spreading through the opening to adjacent areas. Any additional carbon dioxide required for screening the opening must be adjusted if the temperatures are outside the normal design range. Types of Fires Types of fires which can be extinguished by total flooding may be divided into two categories: surface fires involving flammable liquids, gases and solids, and deep-seated fires involving solids subject to smoldering. Local application systems can be used only for surface fire protection. SURFACE FIRES Are the most common hazards particularly adaptable to extinguishment by total flooding systems. They are subject to prompt extinguishment when carbon dioxide is quickly introduced into the enclosure in sufficient quantity to overcome leakage and provide an extinguishing concentration for the particular materials involved. DEEP-SEATED For deep-seated fires, the required extinguishing concentration shall be maintained for a sufficient period of time to allow the smoldering to be extinguished and the material to cool to a point at which reignition will not occur. The hazard should be inspected immediately after to make certain extinguishment is complete. Cooking oils and grease will require longer discharge. Hazard Atmosphere The carbon dioxide system can be used in most industrial environments. If the hazard is designed as explosion-proof, the control system, releasing devices and electric valve actuators (if not approved for hazardous environments) must be located away from the hazard area and the system must be remotely piped to the area. Only the detectors, distribution piping, nozzles, or other nonelectrical parts may be located in the hazard. Hazardous Material Carbon dioxide is an effective agent to suppress the following types of fires: CLASS A SURFACE FIRES: These fires involve ordinary combustible materials such as cloth, paper, rubber, and many plastics.

CLASS B FLAMMABLE LIQUID AND GAS FIRES These fires involve such materials as oils, greases, tars, oilbased paints, lacquers, and gasoline. NOTE: Specific fuel must be identified as it will determine total flood concentration requirements. CLASS C ENERGIZED ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT FIRES Common Class C devices include control rooms, transformers, oil switches, circuit breakers, rotating equipment, pumps, and motors. Carbon dioxide is NOT effective on the following types of fires: Class D combustible metals such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, titanium, and zirconium. Chemicals containing their own oxygen supply, such as cellulose nitrate. Metal hydrides Ventilation Considerations The hazard ventilation system is very important when considering total flooding application, but should also be considered for local application. If possible, the ventilation system should be shut down and/or dampered before or simultaneously with the start of the carbon dioxide discharge. If the ventilation system cannot be shut down, the volume of air moved by the system during the discharge period must be added to the enclosure volume if a total flooding designed system is required. Consider installing dampers wherever possible to restrict the fire to the protected area and enhance the fire protection. Electrical Considerations It is recommended that all electrical power sources associated with the protected hazard be shut down before system discharge. This eliminates the potential of a fire being electrically-reignited. In addition to the above, review the following statements: LIVE UNINSULATED HIGH VOLTAGE WIRE For minimum clearances of live uninsulated high voltage wire, refer to NFPA 12 Electrical Clearances. Reduced clearance can result in line spikes being fed into the control system, releasing devices, or field wiring circuits. 120 VAC PRIMARY POWER SOURCE Determine if a 120 VAC primary power source is available for the control system or releasing device operation. The control system or releasing device requires an independent 120 VAC 50/60 Hz circuit. System wiring must comply with all local codes and applicable NFPA Standards.

Section 5 Planning

HAZARD ANALYSIS (Continued) Temperature Range The following temperature ranges must be determined and noted to ensure proper placement and operation of the carbon dioxide and detection control components: HAZARD AREA Determine the minimum and maximum temperature of the hazard to be protected. This temperature may be any temperature that the distribution piping and detectors can withstand only if the agent tank, control system, or accessories are located outside of the hazard area. For extreme temperature conditions, the following compensations must be made: If the enclosure temperature is above 200 F (93 C), the quantity of agent must be increased by 1% for each five degrees above 200 F (93 C). If the temperature is below 0 F (18 C), the agent quantity must be increased by 1% for each one degree below 0 F (18 C). AGENT CYLINDER The carbon dioxide cylinder must be located in an area with a temperature range from 0 F to 130 F (18 C to 54 C). DETECTION/CONTROL SYSTEM The detection/control system must be located in an area with a temperature range from 32 F to 120 F (0 C to 49 C). Other Factors That Influence System Planning The following additional factors require consideration to perform a thorough hazard analysis: HANDICAPPED PERSONNEL Care should be taken that proper signs and visual devices are placed so all personnel are aware that the system has been activated. RESPONSE TIME OF FIREFIGHTING SERVICE Establish the maximum time required for firefighting service to respond to an alarm. This information can be used to determine if a reserve system is required. The reserve system can provide a second discharge in the event of a fire reflash. RESERVE SYSTEM If a reserve carbon dioxide system is required, determine if it should be permanently connected, or unconnected and located on the premises. The addition of a connected or unconnected reserve system will add to your job cost estimate. CYLINDER AND ACCESSORY LOCATION Establish a location that is acceptable with the end-user and verify the following: Temperature range is acceptable; Piping limitations are not exceeded; Components are not subject to damage or vandalism.

DISCHARGE TEST Determine if a discharge test is required. A discharge test will require proper preparation and will affect your total cost estimate. AUTHORITY HAVING JURISDICTION Contact the enduser or authority having jurisdiction to establish the requirements for: Minimum/maximum detector spacing; Type of detection and control system that is acceptable; Final inspection or discharge test required; If reserve system is required; What audible and/or visual alarm devices may be required.

Design
After completing the hazard analysis sub-section in Section 5, Planning, proceed with the following elements to work up a complete design and bill of materials. APPLICATION METHOD Choose one of the following approved application methods. Depending on the hazard, it may be necessary to combine different application methods on the total system. Total Flooding HAZARD VOLUME Determine the hazard volume by physically measuring the enclosure and calculating its volume. Make a sketch noting any permanent installations that would affect the flow of the agent into the enclosure or affect piping installation. Note any partially enclosed areas that require special consideration to ensure complete flooding of the space. NFPA 12 states in figuring the net cubic capacity to be protected, due allowance may be made for permanent nonremovable impermeable structures materially reducing the volume. CALCULATING % OF UNCLOSABLE OPENING The total area of unclosable openings must not exceed 3% of the total hazard area. To calculate the percent of unclosable opening, first total the surface area of the hazard walls, floor, and ceiling. Then total the area of all the unclosable openings. Once both totals have been recorded, divide the total area of all openings by the total area of the hazard and then multiply that number by 100. Total Unclosable Opening Area divided by Total Hazard Area x 100 = % of Unclosable Openings. The number arrived at will be the percentage of unclosable openings. If the number is above 3%, arrangements must be made to close some of the openings upon discharge of the system. AGENT QUANTITY The quantity of agent required for extinguishment is dependent upon whether the fire is a surface-type or deep-seated. Surface Fires: It is assumed that extinguishment will occur as soon as the necessary concentration is achieved. Minimum design concentration for many common flammable liquids are given in Figure 1. For materials not listed in this table, values must be obtained from a recognized source or obtained by testing. The minimum design concentration used for any hazard must not be less than 34%.

APPLICATION METHOD (Continued) Total Flooding (Continued) Because some carbon dioxide escapes from the enclosure with the displaced air, the actual amount of agent required is greater than the theoretical amount. For example, to achieve a carbon dioxide concentration of 34% would ideally require about one pound of carbon dioxide per 26 cubic feet of space. However, in actual practice, one pound of carbon dioxide is required per 22 cubic feet of space to achieve 34% concentration. For enclosures of less than 50,000 cubic feet, the minimum quantities of agent and volume factors given in Figure 2 must be adhered to. Volume Factors Volume of Volume Factor Space (cu. ft. (cu. ft.

Not Less Than 10 35 100 250 2500 FIGURE 2 The higher concentration achieved from using this table is based on the assumption that the leakage from a small enclosure will be greater on a volumetric basis, than from a large enclosure. If the minimum design concentration is greater than 34% for the hazard, the volume factor must be multiplied by the material conversion factor listed in Figure 3 to achieve the required greater concentration. Material Conversion Factors

For ventilating systems that cannot be shut down, additional carbon dioxide shall be added to the space through the regular distribution system in an amount computed by dividing the volume moved during the liquid discharge period by the flooding factor. This shall be multiplied by the material conversion factor when the design concentration is greater than 34 percent. For extreme temperature conditions, the following compensations must be made: If the enclosure temperature is above 200 F (93 C), the quantity of agent must be increased by 1% for each five degrees above 200 F (93 C). If the temperature is below 0 F (17 C), the agent quantity must be increased by 1% for each one degree below 0 F (17 C). To calculate the minimum agent quantity required for a total flooding surface fire, complete the following steps: 1. Refer to Figure 1 to determine the correct design concentration for the type of hazard material. Example: A 4500 cubic ft. hazard contains barrels of JP-4 fuel. Referring to the table, JP-4 fuel requires a carbon dioxide concentration of 36%. 2. Refer to the Volume Factors in Figure 2. Using the previously calculated hazard volume, determine the required amount of carbon dioxide by dividing the hazard volume (in cubic feet) by the Volume Factor for cu. ft./lb. CO2 (or multiply by lb. CO2/cu. ft.) determined in the table. Example: The sample hazard has a volume of 4500 cubic feet. Dividing 4500 cubic feet by 18 (volume factor) equals 250 lbs. of carbon dioxide required. If the sample hazard material had required a design concentration of 34%, no additional calculation steps would be required to determine total quantity of carbon dioxide. Because the example hazard requires 36% design concentration, an additional step must be completed to determine amount of carbon dioxide required. Continue with Step 3. 3. For materials requiring a design concentration greater than 34%, refer to Figure 3. After determining the amount of carbon dioxide required in Step 2, calculate the new amount required by following the graph in this figure. Example: The sample hazard contains JP-4 fuel. This fuel requires a design concentration of 36%. Find 36% on the bottom of the graph. Follow the line up until it intersects with the curved line. At that point, read across to the left to determine the conversion factor. In this case, the conversion factor is 1.1 on the left side of the graph. To complete the calculation, multiply the quantity of carbon dioxide determined in Step 2 (250 lbs.) by the conversion factor of 1.1 which equals 275. Therefore, 275 lbs. is the required amount of carbon dioxide needed for this sample hazard.

Section 6 Design REV. 1

APPLICATION METHOD (Continued) Total Flooding (Continued) After calculating the minimum amount of carbon dioxide required, add to it any additional carbon dioxide needed to compensate for loss through openings, extreme temperature ranges, etc., as stated in the beginning of this section. To determine the additional amount of CO2 required to compensate for the loss through the unclosable openings, refer to Figure 4. Determine the height from the top of the hazard down to the center of the unclosable opening. Find this dimension on the bottom line of the chart. Read up the chart to the diagonal line representing the % of CO2 being designed for. At that intersect point, read to the left to determine the leakage rate in lbs. of CO2 per minute per sq. ft. of opening. Finally, multiply this number by 1/2 of the sq. ft. area of the unclosable opening. This will now give the additional amount of CO2 required which must be added to the previous total. Remember, use only 1/2 of the total opening area since it is presumed that fresh air will enter through one-half of the opening and the protective gas will exit through the other half. The following example will help understand this calculation: Based on the previous example requiring 275 lbs. of CO2, now assume that the hazard has one unclosable opening of 2 ft. x 3 ft. This is an area of 6 sq. ft. The center of the opening is 8 ft. down from the ceiling of the hazard. The JP-4 fuel requires a carbon dioxide concentration of 36%. Referring to the chart in Figure 4, find 8 ft. on the bottom line. Follow up the line until it intersects approximately 36% on the diagonal line. Reading over to the left gives a leakage rate of approximately 20 lbs. per min. per sq. ft. of opening. Now multiply 20 lbs. x 3 sq. ft. (1/2 the total opening area) = 60 lbs. 60 lbs. of additional CO2 must now be added to the original amount of 275 lbs. for a new total of 335 lbs.

Deep-Seated Fires: For deep-seated fires, the concentration of agent must be maintained for a substantial period of time, but not less than 20 minutes, to assure extinguishment. This consideration demands that the enclosure be relatively leak proof. Any leakage must be given careful consideration. The agent concentration is dependent upon the type of combustible material present. See Figure 5 to determine the correct flooding factors for deep-seated fires.

APPLICATION METHOD (Continued) Total Flooding (Continued) Special situations must be given the same considerations previously mentioned under special conditions, Page 6-2. If the agent concentration must be maintained for an extended period of time, the agent discharge time must be increased accordingly to maintain the minimum concentration required. For unusually tight enclosures, venting may be required to prevent a dangerous buildup of pressure within the enclosure. Small leaks in normal enclosures have been found to provide adequate venting in most cases. To calculate the minimum agent quantity required for a deep-seated fire, complete the following steps: 1. Refer to Figure 5 to determine the correct design concentration for the type of material being protected. Example: 4000 cubic foot fur storage vault is being protected. This requires a concentration of 75%. 2. Again, referring to Figure 5, note the correct Flooding Factor to use for the type of material being protected. In this example, the correct flooding factor for a fur storage vault is 6. 3. To determine the required amount of carbon dioxide needed, divide the total hazard volume by the flooding factor volume. Example: The total hazard volume of this example is 4000 cubic feet. The required flooding factor is 6. Therefore, 4000 divided by 6 equals 667 lbs. of carbon dioxide required to protect this hazard. After calculating the minimum amount of carbon dioxide required, add to it any additional amount needed to compensate for loss through openings, extreme temperatures, ventilating systems, etc., as stated in the beginning of this section. NUMBER OF NOZZLES There is no exact science when it comes to placing discharge nozzles in a hazard area. Some of the rules that should be followed are: 20 ft. maximum spacing between nozzles total flooding only Not more than 10 ft. from a wall or major obstruction total flooding only Try not to locate the nozzle near an unclosable opening unless using for screening Make certain nothing interferes with the discharge pattern of the nozzle Make certain the nozzle is not located so that it causes unduly splash of flammable liquids or creates dust clouds that might extend the fire, create an explosion, or otherwise adversely affect the contents of the enclosure.

When locating the nozzles, draw a sketch of the hazard and place the location of the nozzles on it. Dimension the location of the nozzles from the walls or major components in the hazard area. These locations and dimensions will be used later to determine piping lengths and number of fittings. NOZZLE TYPE Again, there is no exact science when choosing a nozzle for total flooding. Some style nozzles are better suited for certain type of hazards than others. Listed below are the styles of available total flooding nozzles and a short description of their discharge characteristics and possible usage: A or D Type Nozzle Produces a soft discharge. Generally used in sub-floor areas where a too strong of discharge would drive the carbon dioxide out of the area. Sealed Type Nozzle Sealed to prevent dirt or vapors from getting into the piping network. Generally used in ducts, hoods, or enclosed machinery spaces. Regular Type Nozzle Produces a high velocity spray type pattern. Generally used in ducts and small enclosed hazards. Baffle Type Nozzle Fan shape pattern. Spreads agent rapidly. Most commonly used nozzle for rooms and enclosed spaces. Usually mounted near ceiling. EXTENDED RATE OF APPLICATION Where leakage is appreciable and the design concentration must be obtained quickly and maintained for an extended period of time, carbon dioxide provided for leakage compensation may be applied at a reduced rate using small orifice nozzles. This type of system is particularly applicable to enclosed rotating electrical apparatus, such as generators, motors, and convertors, but it may also be used on ordinary total flooding applications where suitable. The minimum design concentration shall be obtained within the limits specified below: For surface fires, the design concentration shall be achieved within 1 minute. If a part of the hazard is to be protected by total flooding, the discharge rate for the total flooding portion shall be computed by dividing the quantity required for total flooding by the factor 1.4 and by the time of the local application discharge in minutes. For deep-seated fires, the design concentration shall be achieved within 7 minutes, but the rate shall be not less than that required to develop a concentration of 30 percent in 2 minutes.

APPLICATION METHOD (Continued) Total Flooding (Continued) The extended rate of discharge shall be sufficient to maintain the minimum concentration. For enclosed rotating electrical equipment, a minimum concentration of 30% shall be maintained for the deceleration period, but not less than 20 minutes. HYDRAULIC CALCULATIONS For estimating purposes, see Figure 18 to approximately determine the size of piping required for carbon dioxide discharge. Consult your piping sketch and determine flow rate and approximate pipe sizes. These pipe sizes are not to be used for final hydraulic system design. The designer must have knowledge of and access to the ANSUL ANSCALC Version 2.0 HYDRAULIC CALCULATION PROGRAM. See Appendix section of this manual. Local Application DISCHARGE TIME The discharge time for local application systems is a minimum of 30 seconds. This applies to normal fuels such as quench oil. When protecting fuels with an auto-ignition point below its boiling point, such as paraffin wax or cooking oils, the effective discharge time is increased to 3 minutes. This increase is to permit cooling of the fuel to prevent reignition. RATE OF DISCHARGE Nozzle discharge rates shall be determined by either the area method or the volume method: The area method of system design is used where the fire hazard consists of flat surfaces or low level objects associated with horizontal surfaces. The volume method of system design is used where the fire hazard consists of three-dimensional irregular objects that cannot be easily reduced to equivalent surface areas.

DETERMINE NOZZLE PLACEMENT Local application carbon dioxide fire suppression systems employ overhead type nozzles. Each nozzle is rated for a specific flow rate at a given height over the protected surface. The nozzle is also rated to protect a specific square area based on a side-of-square dimension at a given height and flow rate. The overhead nozzles are not restricted to placement exactly perpendicular to the surface they are protecting. These nozzles may be installed at angles between 45 and 90 (perpendicular) from the plane of the hazard surface. See Figure 6 and 7. The following chart lists the aiming factors for angular placement of nozzles, based on a 6-inch freeboard.

APPLICATION METHOD (Continued) Local Application (Continued) The nozzle height above the hazard will determine flow rate and number of nozzles required, therefore, based on what the hazard configuration will allow, place the nozzles as close to the hazard as possible. This will then allow for the least number of nozzles and the least total amount of agent. DETERMINE NOZZLE TYPE Figure 8 through Figure 12 show the overhead nozzle ratings for flow rate and side-of-square for specific heights above the surface being protected. For liquid or wetted surfaces, (rate by area) 6 in. Multi-Discharge, Type "A", Type "D", or Cone nozzles are normally used. For rate by volume, the 6 in. Multi-Discharge is normally used.

APPLICATION METHOD (Continued) Local Application (Continued) DETERMINE NUMBER OF NOZZLES The number of nozzles required is based on the length and width of the hazard area. After the type of nozzle has been chosen and the height above the hazard has been determined, refer to the appropriate figure (Figures 8-12) for that nozzle and record the listed side-of-square. Then, use the following formula to determine total number of nozzles required: Number of Nozzles Required = Linear Length x Linear Width Side-Of-Square Side-Of-Square AGENT QUANTITY In the case of local application type carbon dioxide fire suppression systems, only the liquid portion of the discharge is considered effective. The calculated quantity of agent, then, shall always be increased by 40%. This is done through the use of a multiplier with a value of 1.4 (140%). The agent quantity formula is as follows: Amount of Agent Required = Number of Nozzles x Flow Rate Per Nozzle x 1.4 x Discharge Time Required The number of cylinders required is obtained by dividing the total pounds of agent required by the size of the agent storage container to be used and then rounding the result up to the next whole number.

SAMPLE PROBLEMS The following two sample problems, rate by area, and rate by volume, are structured to lead you, step by step, through each of the required areas for designing a local application system. Rate by area: A typical dip tank (9 ft. long x 3 ft. wide) and drainboard (6 ft. long x 3 ft. wide) is to be protected by means of a local application carbon dioxide system. The parts to be dipped are fed into the dip tank by means of an overhead conveyor system. Attached to the dip tank is a drainboard to reclaim any excess from the dripping operation. To allow for maintenance to the conveyor, tank, or drain, the customer requests that the overhead nozzles be placed no closer than 30 inches from the surface being protected. Since the conveyor system runs along the center line of the dip tank and drain, the conveyor may interfere with the effectiveness of overhead nozzles placed directly over the protected surface. The solution to the problem, then, is to place overhead nozzles on either side of the conveyor and orientate them by means of the Aiming Factor Chart, Figure 7. This orientation of the nozzles will not affect the agent quantity required, but merely provide an aiming point on the protected surface for installation purposes. Once the placement of the nozzles have been determined, the nozzle type and number is required. Referring to the Nozzle Range Table, Figure 8, it is noted that both the A Type and the D Type nozzle will permit placement in a range that is acceptable for the sample problem. It should be noted that even though all the overhead nozzles meet the criteria of the example problem, the further the nozzle is from the hazard surface, the higher the flow rate must be; and, therefore, more agent is require. The following table compares the A and D Type nozzles for the liquid surface protection of the dip tank: Nozzle Height Type (in.) A 30 D 30 Side-of Flow Rate Square Number (lb./min.) (ft.)

*Number Required = Linear Length x Linear Width Side-Of-Square Side-Of-Square

Section 6 Design REV. 1

APPLICATION METHOD (Continued) Local Application (Continued) With this comparison, it can easily be seen that of the two types of nozzles, the D type nozzle will provide the protection required with the fewest number of nozzles and the least amount of agent. For the liquid surface of the dip tank, the D type nozzle at a height of 30 in. will protect an area having a side-of-square of 2.24 feet. The number required to protect the dip tank is: Number Required = Linear Length x Linear Width Side-Of-Square Side-Of-Square = 9.0 ft. x 3.0 ft. 2.24 ft. 2.24 ft. = 4.0 x 1.34 =4x2 = 8 "D" Nozzles at 30 in. and 19.0 lb./min.flow rate each. For the wetted surface of the drainboard, the D type nozzle at a height of 30 in. will protect an area having a side-of-square of 2.65 feet. The number required to protect the drainboard is: Number Required = Linear Length x Linear Width Side-Of-Square Side-Of-Square = 6.0 ft. x 3.0 ft. 2.65 ft. 2.65 ft. = 2.26 x 1.13 =3x2 = 6 "D" Nozzles at 30 in. and 19.0 lb./min. flow rate each. Now that the type, number and flow rate of each nozzle has been determined, the quantity of agent may now be calculated. It should again be noted that only the liquid portion of the discharge is considered effective. The quantity of agent must, therefore, be increased by 40%. To do this, the calculation includes a multiplier of 1.4 (140%). Also, the discharge time for local application systems protecting hazards containing normal fuels shall be a minimum of 30 second (0.5 minutes). Given the above parameters the following calculations for agent quantity can be made: Quantity of Agent = Number of Nozzles x Flow Rate per Nozzle x 1.4 x Discharge Time Liquid Surface Quantity = 8 D Nozzles x 19.0 lbs./min./nozzle x 1.4 x .05 minutes.

Wetted Surfaces = 6 D Nozzles x 19.0 lbs./min./ Quantity nozzle x 1.4 x .05 minutes. = 79.8 lbs. of carbon dioxide required Total Agent Required = 106.4 lbs. + 79.8 lbs. = 186.2 Total lbs.

Using 100 lb. cylinders. Number of = Agent Required = 186.2 lbs. = 2-100 lb. Cylinders Cylinder Size 100 lb./cyl. cylinders Since the agent supply is larger than required, the discharge time will be somewhat greater than 30 seconds. NOTICE Do not increase flow rate as this may cause splashing of fuel. Another type of local application system is the rate by volume method. This type should be considered when the fire hazard consists of three-dimensional irregular objects that cannot be easily reduced to equivalent surface areas. Rate by volume (assumed enclosure): When attempting to design a system using this approach, several factors most be considered: The total discharge rate of the system shall be based on the volume of an assumed enclosure entirely surrounding the hazard. The assumed enclosure shall be based on an actual closed floor unless special provisions are made to take care of bottom conditions, such as local application or rate by area design applied from underneath. The assumed walls and ceiling of the enclosure shall be at least 2 ft. from the main hazard unless actual walls are involved and shall enclose all areas of possible leakage, splashing, or spillage. No reduction shall be made for solid objects within the volume. A minimum dimension of 4 ft. shall be used in calculating the volume of the assumed enclosure. If the hazard may be subject to winds or forced drafts, the assumed volume shall be increased to compensate for losses on the windward sides. The total discharge rate for the basic system shall be equal to 1 lb./min./cu. ft. of assumed volume.

6-9

Section 6 Design REV. 1

APPLICATION METHOD (Continued) Local Application (Continued) If the assumed enclosure has a closed floor and is partly defined by permanent continuous walls extending at least 2 ft. above the hazard (where the walls are not normally a part of the hazard), the discharge rate may be proportionately reduced to not less than 0.25 lb./min./cu. ft. actual walls completely surrounding the enclosure. Rate by volume is normally a less cost efficient way to protect a hazard but this approach should be considered if no other appropriate means of protection is available. The first approach to look at in designing a rate by volume system is to design the system assuming there are no walls around or near the hazard. This approach requires increasing the hazard size by 2 ft. all around (assume volume) and designing the system for this increased size. The following example will take you through the necessary steps. Example 1: The hazard in question is a back-up generator located in a corner of a warehouse. The generator itself is 6 ft. long x 3 ft. wide x 4 ft. high. When utilizing the first approach to designing a rate by volume system, add 2 ft. completely around the hazard. This then gives a total hazard size of 10 ft. long x 7 ft. wide x 6 ft. high. This increase in size now gives an assumed volume of 420 cu. ft. See Figure 13.

The next step is to determine the total amount of carbon dioxide required. This is done by multiplying the total volume x the flow rate per minute per cu. ft. x the liquid carbon dioxide factor of 1.4 x the minimum discharge time of 30 seconds. In this example the total volume is 420 cu. ft., the flow rate per minute per cu. ft. is 1 lb. when no reduction is figured in for walls, therefore, the formula is: 420 (volume in cu. ft.) x 1 (flow rate per minute) x 1.4 (liquid factor) x .5 (minimum discharge time) = 294 lbs. of agent required. The next step is to determine the number of cylinders required. This is accomplished by dividing the total amount of agent by the size of cylinder chosen and then rounding up to the next whole number. 294 (total carbon dioxide) divided by 100 (size of cylinder chosen) = 2.94 or 3 cylinders required (rounded up). Now, review the hazard to determine where to locate the nozzles and how many nozzles will be required. There is no exact science for locating local application nozzles. Choose as many nozzles as you feel it may take to adequately cover the assumed volume. The nozzles should be mounted around the perimeter of the assumed volume and pointed at the hazard. In this example, four nozzles have been chosen. Nozzles should be placed to keep agent in assumed enclosure. Next step is to determine flow rate per nozzle by dividing the total amount of agent by the number of nozzles: 294 (total lbs. of agent) divided by 4 (total number of nozzles) = 73.5 lbs./min. flow rate.

If no other rate by volume designs were to be looked at, then the next step would be to sketch the piping configuration and proceed to the hydraulic calculation program to determine pipe sizes. In this example though, we will continue on and look at additional types of rate by volume designs for this same hazard. Example 2: The next approach to this hazard would be to consider what the system requirements would be by designing the system utilizing the actual walls which are on two sides of the hazard.

Section 6 Design REV. 1

APPLICATION METHOD (Continued) Local Application (Continued) The following steps detail this type of local application, rate by volume, approach: The first step is to determine the new assumed volume. This is done by adding two ft. to the sides of the hazard which are not enclosed by actual walls and using the actual distance that the hazard is from the actual walls. Again, in determining volume, two ft. must also be added to the height of the actual hazard. Determine the assumed volume by multiplying the length, width, and height together. See Figure 14. 14 ft. long x 11 ft. wide x 6 ft. high = 924 cu. ft.

Next, determine the % of closed perimeter (actual walls) compared to the total perimeter (total of assumed walls and actual walls). This is done by adding the actual wall lengths and dividing that number by the total of all walls (both actual and assumed). In this example, the actual walls total 25 ft. (14 + 11) and the total perimeter totals 50 ft. (14 + 14 + 11 + 11). See Figure 15.

Knowing this, the total amount of carbon dioxide required can now be calculated by the following formula: Total agent required = Volume x Flow Rate per minute per cu. ft. x 1.4 (liquid factor) x .5 (minimum discharge time). 924 cu. ft x .625 lb./min./cu. ft. x 1.4 x .5 = 404 lb. of carbon dioxide required. At this point, it appears that this approach is not as cost effective as Example No. 1 using the assumed volume method with no walls. But, if the closed perimeter approach is looked at by having the customer install some inexpensive, non-combustible concrete block walls around the open side of the hazard, the results may be considerably different. Assume that the customer will install 6 ft. high walls around the open sides of the hazard, calculate the amount of agent required by following the steps in Example 3. 6-12

Example 3: Once again, we are dealing with the same volume as Example 2 (924 cu. ft.) but this time the hazard has been enclosed on the two open sides by the addition of a concrete block wall. See Figure 17. The only wall opening that exists now is a 3.5 ft. opening for access to the generator. Remember, the additional wall must only be 2 ft. higher than the actual hazard.

Now, determine the % of closed perimeter (actual walls) compared to the total perimeter (total of assumed walls and actual walls). This is accomplished by adding the actual wall lengths and dividing that number by the total of all walls (both actual and assumed). In this example, the actual walls total 46.5 ft. (14 + 11 + 14 + 7.5) and the total perimeter totals 50 ft. (14 + 14 + 11 + 11). % of enclosure = 46.5 ft. divided by 50 ft. = .93 .93 x 100 = 93% perimeter closed Referring to the Rate By Volume Assumed Enclosure Chart, Figure 16, 93% closed perimeter allows a discharge rate of .31 lb./min./cu. ft. Knowing this, the total amount of carbon dioxide required can now be calculated by the following formula: Total agent required = Volume x Flow Rate per Minute Per Cu. Ft. x 1.4 (liquid factor) x .5 (minimum discharge time) 924 cu. ft. x .31 lb./min./cu. ft. x 1.4 x .5 = 200 lb. of carbon dioxide required. As you can see, by having the customer install a fairly inexpensive wall, the hazard can be protected by 2-100 lb. cylinders instead of the next least amount of three as calculated in Example 1.

APPLICATION METHOD (Continued) Local Application (Continued) HYDRAULIC CALCULATIONS For estimating purposes, the following Figure 18 can be used to approximately determine the size of piping required for carbon dioxide discharge. Consult your piping sketch and determine flow rate and approximate pipe sizes. These pipe sizes are not to be used for final hydraulic system design.

The rate and duration of discharge and consequently the amount of carbon dioxide shall be determined by the type and potential size of the hazard. A hand hose line shall have a sufficient quantity of carbon dioxide to permit its use for at least 1 minute. The carbon dioxide supply shall be located as close to the hose reel as possible so that liquid carbon dioxide will be supplied to the hose line with a minimum of delay after actuation. Refer to UL Fire Protection Equipment Directory, under section titled Carbon Dioxide System Units, Hand Hose Line (FYWZ) for equivalent lengths of hose line components. DETECTION SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Refer to ANSUL AUTOPULSE Detection and Control Installation, Programming, and Maintenance Manual. Mechanical Detectors (Fusible Links) The fusible link detection system can be used where a self-contained, unsupervised, mechanical detection system is desired or required. The detection system allows for automatic detection by means of specific rated fusible links, which, when the temperature reaches the rating of the link, the link separates, allowing the release mechanism to actuate. Ansuls recommendations for quantity and placement of fusible link detectors are directly related to the hazard type and application method used as followed: TOTAL FLOODING APPLICATIONMaximum spacing per detector is 100 sq. ft. and 5 ft. from a wall and 10 ft. between detectors with a maximum height (above hazard) of 14 ft. On ceiling heights above 14 ft. up to 20 ft. high, the maximum spacing per detector is 64 sq. ft. and 4 ft. from a wall and 8 ft. between detectors. NOTE: For sloped ceiling (peaked type or shed type) installations, refer to NFPA-72, National Fire Alarm Code for detailed spacing requirements. LOCAL APPLICATION OVERHEAD (DETECTOR SPACING) Maximum spacing per fusible link detector is 36 sq. ft. (3.3 sq. m or 3 ft. (.9 m) from edge of hazard and 6 ft. (1.8 m) between fusible link detectors. When a detector(s) is mounted more than 1 ft. (.3 m) below ceiling or in an open area, heat trap(s) is recommended. Detectors should be mounted overhead at nozzle height or as close to the hazard as possible without interference, not to exceed 10 ft. (3 m). Detectors should not be located where they will be susceptible to damage during the normal work operation.

NOTE: This table is for estimating purposes only. Flow calculations are required for all system installations. Check valves or selector valves may be chosen through the use of this table.

FIGURE 18 The designer must have knowledge of and access to the ANSUL ANSCALC Version 2.0 HYDRAULIC CALCULATION PROGRAM. See Appendix Section of this manual. Hand Hose Lines Hand hose line systems may be used to supplement fixed fire protection systems or to supplement first aid fire extinguishers for the protection of specific hazards for which carbon dioxide is a suitable extinguishing agent. These systems shall not be used as a substitute for other fixed carbon dioxide fire extinguishing systems equipped with fixed nozzles, except where the hazard cannot adequately or economically be provided with fixed protection. The decision as to whether hose lines are applicable to the particular hazard shall rest with the authority having jurisdiction. Hand hose lines stations shall be placed such that they are easily accessible and within reach of the most distant hazard which they are expected to protect. In general, they shall not be located such that they are exposed to the hazard nor shall they be located inside any hazard area protected by a total flooding system.

DETECTION SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS (Continued) Mechanical Detectors (Fusible Links) (Continued) LOCAL APPLICATION TANKSIDE (DETECTOR SPACING) Detectors can be located either near the inner tank wall and flammable liquid surface or above the tank. If located above the tank, the rules for local application overhead would apply. If located on the tank wall, the detectors can be mounted horizontally or vertically in the freeboard area, but must be protected from damage during normal working operation. Detectors should be located at a maximum spacing per detector of 3 ft. (.9 m) from edge of hazard and 6 ft. (1.8 m) between detectors on the long side of the tank. FUSIBLE LINK SELECTION In order to determine the normal operating temperature at the fusible link location, utilize a maximum registering thermometer, Part No. 15240. Select correct fusible link(s) for installation in detector(s) according to the temperature condition chart below: Fusible Link Part No. 415739 415740 415741 415742 415743 56816 Temperature Rating (See Figure 20) 165 F (74 C) 212 F (100 C) 280 F (138 C) 360 F (182 C) 450 F (232 C) 500 F (260 C) To Be Used Where Temperature Does Not Exceed 100 F (38 C) 150 F (66 C) 225 F (107 C) 290 F (143 C) 360 F (182 C) 400 F (204 C)

ACTUATION REQUIREMENTS Three types of actuation are available for the Carbon Dioxide system: manual, pneumatic, and electric. Manual Actuation Manual actuation can be used with or without automatic detection. When no detection is required, the lever actuator can be mounted on top of the carbon dioxide cylinder valve. The manual lever release actuator provides a manual means of agent cylinder actuation by direct manual actuation of its pull lever or cable actuation when used in conjunction with a remote manual pull station. In a two cylinder system, the remaining cylinder is actuated by the pressure generated within the distribution manifold. In three or more cylinder systems, two lever actuators are required, and a connecting link is used to provide simultaneous actuation of both manual cable-pull actuators. The maximum length of actuator cable which may be used in the remote line is 150 ft. The maximum number of corner pulley elbows is 10. The second means of manual actuation can be accomplished by using a manual/pneumatic actuator. This actuator can be also used if pneumatic pressure or an electric signal is being supplied by the control panel of the automatic detection system. Manual actuation is accomplished by removing the ring pin and depressing the red palm button. One manual/pneumatic actuator is required in single or two cylinder systems. Pneumatic Actuation

BEAMS AND CEILING OBSTRUCTIONSBeams and ceiling obstructions may be present which could obstruct detector placement over the hazard. Additional detectors may be required to provide adequate protection and to avoid obstructions. Lay Out the Detection and Control Components on the Hazard Sketch Now that you have analyzed the hazard and selected the detection and control hardware, you can complete a sketch. The sketch should show the placement of the accessories as well as the detection, control, and electrical components.

Pneumatic actuation is used with pneumatic valve actuators located on the carbon dioxide cylinder valves. The pressure is supplied from an LT-30-R nitrogen cartridge located in the ANSUL AUTOMAN and ANSUL AUTOMAN II-C release. The pressure pneumatically opens the cylinder valves. One pneumatic actuator is required in single or two cylinder systems and two actuators are required in systems with three or more cylinders. The maximum length of 1/4 in. Schedule 40 pipe is 150 ft. If it is necessary to have an actuation pipe run which exceeds the maximum allowable 1/4 in. pipe requirements, 1/4 in. stainless steel tubing with a wall thickness of 0.065 can be used for the actuation line. When this size tubing is used, a maximum of 300 ft., with no reductions for elbows or tees, is allowed.

Section 6 Design REV. 1

ACTUATION REQUIREMENTS (Continued) Electric Actuation Electric actuation is used with the HF electric actuator mounted on the carbon dioxide cylinder valve and an AUTOPULSE control system. See appropriate AUTOPULSE manual for detailed wiring information. The AUTOPULSE control system also provides a supervised method of tank actuation without limits on the tank location. In auxiliary or override applications, a manuallocal override valve actuator or a lever actuator can be installed on top of the HF actuator. A means of electric actuation of a selector valve is by the use of a solenoid actuator assembly, Part No. 73111. See appropriate AUTOPULSE manual for detailed wiring information.

ACCESSORIES Specific selection and placement of accessories that may be used with the carbon dioxide are: Electric or Mechanical Manual Pull The electric or mechanical manual pull station allows the carbon dioxide system to be manually operated at some point distant from the control system or cylinders. The pull station should be installed at a maximum height of 60 in. and located in the path of exit. The total length of wire rope used for each mechanical manual pull station within a system must not exceed 150 ft. The maximum number of pulley elbows that may be used per pull station is 10.

Section 6 Design REV. 1

ACCESSORIES (Continued) Selector valves can be operated by either pneumatic pressure, an electric signal to operate a solenoid valve attachment, remote cable pull, or manually at the valve. Selector valves range in size from 1/2 in. to 4 in. When installing cable operated selector valves, the maximum length of 1/16 in. cable that may be run to operate the selector valve is 150 ft. with a maximum of 10 pulley elbows.

Direction/Stop Valves Direction/stop valves are used to either manually control the flow of carbon dioxide into a hazard area or to manually control the flow into one of several hazards being protected by a common bank of carbon dioxide cylinders. These valves are operated manually, either by the use of a handle attached directly to the valve or by means of a remote pull box which operates a sector attached to the valve. Directional/stop valves can be used as a safety feature, keeping the flow of carbon dioxide from entering a hazard area, either because of a false discharge or to allow the occupants enough time to exit the area prior to the valve being manually opened. When installing a remote pull station to operate the sector on a direction/stop valve, the maximum allowable length of 1/16 in. cable is 150 ft. and the maximum allowable number of pulley elbows is 10.

ACCESSORIES (Continued) Siren The pressure operated siren is used to warn personnel of a system discharge. The siren is operated with the carbon dioxide pressure from the system. The piping to the siren is normally run from the system distribution manifold. The minimum decibel level at 10 ft. is 90 dB. The design requirements are as follows: Required Pipe: 1/4 in., Schedule 40 Flow Rate: 11 lb. per minute Maximum Sirens: 4 Maximum Pipe Length: 200 ft. (61m) minus 1 ft. (.3m) for every elbow used. NOTICE Design of system must include agent used through siren if siren is not located in the hazard area. Pressure operated siren that may be use on the system is: Description Pressure Operated Siren Pressure Switch The pressure switch is operated off the carbon dioxide pressure when the system is discharged. The piping to the pressure switch is normally run from the distribution manifold. The pressure switch can be used to open or close electrical circuits to either shut down equipment or turn on lights or alarms. The piping required to connect from the system manifold to the pressure switch is 1/4 in. Schedule 40. There is no maximum length requirement for this piping as the carbon dioxide will be drawn back through the distribution piping and out the nozzles. Pressure switches that may be used on system are: Description Part No. Pressure SwitchDPST 46250 Pressure SwitchDPDT (Explosion-Proof) 43241 Pressure Switch3PST 42344 The pressure switches are rated as follows: Part No. 46250 2 HP @ 240VAC/480 VAC or 2 HP @ 250 VDC, 30A 250V AC/DC 5A 480V AC/DC Part No. 43241 10A @ 125 VAC, 5A @ 250 VAC Part No. 42344 30A @ 240 VAC, 20A@ 600 VAC, 3 HP @120 VAC, 7.5 HP @ 240 VAC, 15 HP @ 600 VAC, 3 Phase AC Part No. 43118

Pressure Trip The pressure trip is connected to the actuation or discharge line of a carbon dioxide system. By either pneumatic or manual actuation, the pressure trip can release spring or weight powered devices to close doors and windows, open fuel dump valves, close fire dampers or close fuel supply valves. The piping required to connect from the system manifold to the pressure trip is 1/4 in. Schedule 40. This is no maximum length requirement for this piping as the carbon dioxide will be drawn back through the distribution piping and out the nozzles. Pressure trip that may be used on system is: Description Pressure Trip Pneumatic Time Delay In some applications the system discharge must be delayed for a short time following actuation. This is usually in areas where it is necessary to evacuate personnel prior to carbon dioxide discharge. The time delay uses the carbon dioxide pressure to power the factory-set delay mechanism. The time delay is installed in the discharge piping either directly after the control (pilot) cylinder or further along the piping. See Figure 22. A manual release is incorporated on the time delay valve to allow instant override of the time delay. After the discharge is completed, pressure in the time delay slowly returns to normal and the time delay valve again closes. The length of time delay is factory set and not adjustable. The time delay is available in delay settings of 10, 30, and 60 seconds. Part No. 5156

ACCESSORIES (Continued) Pneumatic Time Delay (Continued) Time delays used with the system are: Description Pneumatic Time Delay 60 Seconds Pneumatic Time Delay 30 Seconds Pneumatic Time Delay 10 Seconds Alarms Several types of electric alarms are available. Each of these operate on 24 VDC and must be used on the alarm circuit of an AUTOPULSE Control System. Refer to appropriate AUTOPULSE installation, maintenance, and recharge manual for detailed design information. RESERVE SYSTEM Normally the authority having jurisdiction will determine whether a hazard requires a back up reserve set of carbon dioxide cylinders, either connected or spares. IRI (Industrial Risk Insurers) requires the following: In high pressure systems an extra full complement of charged cylinders (connected reserve) manifolded and piped to feed into the automatic system should be provided on all installations. The reserve supply is actuated by manual operation of the main/reserve switch on either electrically operated or pneumatically operated systems. A connected reserve is desirable for four reasons: Protection should reflash occur. Reliability should the main bank malfunction. Protection during impairment when main tanks are being replaced. Protection of other hazards if selector valves are involved and multiple hazards are protected by the same set of cylinders. If a full complement of charged cylinders cannot be obtained or the empty cylinders recharged, delivered and reinstalled within 24 hours, a third complement of fully charged spare cylinders should be maintained on premises for emergency use. The need for spare cylinders may depend upon whether or not the hazard is under protection of automatic sprinklers. NFPA 12, Standard on Carbon Dioxide Extinguishing Systems, 1989 Edition, states, Both primary and reserve supplies for fixed storage systems shall be permanently connected to the piping and arrange for easy changeover, except where the authority having jurisdiction permits an unconnected reserve. When designing a system, always determine if, and what kind of, reserve system is required. 6-18 Part No. 54168 54169 54170

DEVELOP BILL OF MATERIALS After completing the subsections of the design section, finalize the system design by completing a bill of material for each hazard area being protected. The bill of material, hazard sketches, hydraulic calculations, and any notes, should be kept on file for future reference. SAMPLE PROBLEM Refer to Section 12 for examples of typical applications. By reviewing these examples, it may help answer some questions concerning the total design process.

Installation

All installations are to be performed in accordance with the parameters of this manual and all appropriate codes and standards from the local, state, and federal authority having jurisdiction. Before the carbon dioxide system is installed, the qualified installer should develop installation drawings in order to locate the equipment, to determine an actuation and distribution piping routing, and to develop a bill of material. For successful system performance, the carbon dioxide system components must be located within their approved temperature ranges. The ambient temperature ranges are 0 F to 130 F (18 C to 54 C) for total flooding and 32 F to 120 F (0 C to 49 C) for local applications. All AUTOPULSE Control Systems are designed for indoor applications and for temperature ranges between 32 F to 120 F (0 C to 49 C). MOUNTING COMPONENTS Cylinder/Bracket Assembly Carbon dioxide cylinders may be located inside or outside the protected space, although it is preferable to locate them outside of the space. They must not be located where they will be exposed to a fire or explosion in the hazard. When they are installed within the space they protect, a remote manual control must be installed to release the system safely from outside the hazard area. The cylinders should be installed so that they can be easily removed after use or for weighing and inspection. Do not install the cylinders where they are exposed to direct sun rays.

Section 7 Installation 6-1-98 REV. 1 MOUNTING COMPONENTS (Continued) Cylinder/Bracket Assembly (Continued) 1. Mount each carbon dioxide cylinder by completing the following: CAUTION Releasing Devices Different types of Releasing/Detection systems are available with the carbon dioxide system: ANSUL AUTOMAN mechanical release using fusible link detectors with pneumatic actuation. ANSUL AUTOMAN II-C release using thermal detectors with pneumatic actuation. AUTOPULSE Control System using electric detection with electric actuation. AUTOPULSE Control System with electric detection utilizing an ANSUL AUTOMAN II-C release for pneumatic actuation. For detailed information on detection systems, refer to the following: Ansul Detection and Control Application Manual NFPA 12 Carbon Dioxide Extinguishing Systems NFPA 72 National Fire Alarm Code INSTALLING ACTUATION PIPING Before installing any actuation piping, the piping design must be determined. This will confirm that the lengths of actuation piping does not exceed the maximum allowable. General Piping Requirements 1. Use only 1/4 in. Schedule 40 black iron, hot-dipped galvanized, chrome-plated, or stainless steel pipe/braided hose and fittings conforming to ASTM A120, A53, or A106. 2. Before assembling the pipe and fittings, make certain all ends are carefully reamed and blown clear of chips and scale. Inside of pipe and fittings must be free of oil and dirt. 3. The piping and fitting connections must be sealed with pipe tape. When applying pipe tape, start at the second male thread and wrap the tape (two turns maximum) clockwise around the threads, away from the pipe opening. NOTICE Do not allow tape to overlap the pipe opening, as this could cause possible blockage of the gas pressure. Thread sealant or compound must not be used. 4. Cast iron pipe and fittings are not acceptable. 5. Actuation piping must be rigidly supported by UL listed hangers as described on Page 7-6.

Do not remove the safety shipping caps at this time. They are provided to prevent accidental actuation and discharge during shipping and handling. If valve assembly is accidentally operated, velocity of unrestricted escaping gas is forceful enough to cause injury, especially about the face and head. a. Assemble bracket components. See Parts List, F9127, F-9128, and F-9129, located in the Appendix Section, for details of cylinder bracketing and component assembly. b. If a reserve system is being installed, mount the reserve cylinder(s) directly next to the main system cylinder(s).

CAUTION

Proper fasteners must be used when mounting cylinder bracketing to wall or support. Failure to mount properly could cause cylinder movement upon discharge. c. Securely mount bracketing to rigid wall or support. d. Fasten cylinder(s) securely in bracketing. e. The actuated pilot valves must be located in the distribution manifold as far from the manifold outlet as possible.

INSTALLING DISTRIBUTION PIPING (Continued) Distribution Manifold And Piping 1. Starting with the cylinder manifold, securely mount the manifold at the appropriate height as shown in Figure 11. Make certain that if accessories piping is to be done later that the end of the manifold contains a tee instead of an elbow. The outlet of the tee will later be reduced down to 1/4 in. for piping to the accessories. 2. Continue piping remainder of the distribution piping, following piping sketch and computer design completed in System Design Section. NOTICE All piping shall be laid out to reduce friction losses to a reasonable minimum and care shall be taken to avoid possible restrictions due to foreign matter or faulty fabrication. Before installing nozzles, blow air through complete piping system to determine there is no blockage. Install discharge nozzles as specified on the computer design piping output sheet. Install male end of flexible discharge bend, Part No. 427082, into each manifold inlet. Wrench tighten. With cylinders securely mounted in bracket, attach female end of flexible discharge bend unto cylinder valve outlet. Wrench tighten.
!

7. If accessory piping is required, see Installing Accessories, for detailed piping information. MAIN/RESERVE SYSTEM NFPA 12, Standard on Carbon Dioxide Extinguishing Systems, 1989 Edition, states, "Both primary and reserve supplies for fixed storage systems shall be permanently connected to the piping and arranged for easy changeover, except where the authority having jurisdiction permits an unconnected reserve." When piping a connected reserve system, the reserve cylinders must be segregated from the pressure of the main system. This is accomplished by adding check valves in the distribution manifold. It is also necessary to install a header vent plug on each side of the manifold. This is required because of the addition of the check valves in the manifold. See Figure 12.

Section 7 Installation 6-19-98 REV. 2 INSTALLING DETECTION/ACTUATION SYSTEM Several types of detection systems are available for use with the Ansul carbon dioxide extinguishing system. Some detection systems offer supervised input and output circuits and battery back-up while other types offer unsupervised mechanical, electrical, or pneumatic detection. The type of hazard or the authority having jurisdiction will determine the detection system requirements. NFPA 12 states, Supervision of automatic systems shall be provided unless specifically waived by the authority having jurisdiction. Interconnections between the components that are necessary for the control of the system and life safety, such as detection, actuation, alarms, power sources, etc., shall be supervised. An open circuit, ground fault condition, or loss of integrity in the pneumatic control lines that would impair full system operation shall result in a trouble signal. The alarm and trouble signals shall be transmitted by one of the following methods: a. Local alarm service which will cause an audio and visual signal at a constantly attended location (NFPA 72) b. Proprietary alarm service (NFPA 72) c. Remote alarm service (NFPA 72), or d. Central station alarm service (NFPA 71) Exception: High pressure pneumatic operated slave cylinder connections immediately adjacent to pilot cylinder need not be supervised. AUTOPULSE Control System With Electric Actuator The AUTOPULSE Control System is an electronic device incorporating an internal power supply, on-line emergency batteries, and solid-state electronics. The system can incorporate either ionization, photoelectric, heat, flame, or combustible vapor detectors. The AUTOPULSE Control System offers electric valve actuation by the use of the Ansul HF Actuator, Part No. 73327 for the CV-90 valve cylinders and by the use of the CV-98 electric actuator, Part No. 423684, for the CV-98 valve cylinder. For detailed installation instructions, refer to the appropriate AUTOPULSE Control Systems Manual and the HF Electric Actuator Application and Installation Sheet, Part No. 73330, and CV-98 Electric Actuator Instruction Sheet, Part No. 426003. AUTOPULSE Control System With ANSUL AUTOMAN II-C With Pneumatic Actuation In some cases it is advisable to have electric supervised detection with pneumatic valve actuation. This can be accomplished by incorporating an AUTOPULSE Control System for the detection and an ANSUL AUTOMAN II-C release for the pneumatic actuation. 1. See the appropriate AUTOPULSE Control Manual for detailed installation instructions. 2. Once the electrical portion of the detection system is completed, mount the ANSUL AUTOMAN II-C release in a convenient location to both the AUTOPULSE panel and the carbon dioxide cylinders. 3. Complete wiring required between the AUTOPULSE control panel and the ANSUL AUTOMAN II-C release. See Figure 13.

Section 7 Installation 6-19-98 REV. 1 INSTALLING DETECTION/ACTUATION SYSTEM (Continued) H.A.D. Detection With Mechanical Actuation This type of system is actuated automatically by means of heat actuated detectors (H.A.D.) located in the protected space. Copper tubing connects the detectors to the control head located on the cylinder valve. This system may also be actuated from a remote pull station connected by cable to the automatic control head or by the local manual release located on the control head. H.A.D. COMPONENT CONNECTION 1. Mount heat actuated detectors on ceiling of hazard area in accordance with location determined in the System Design Section. 2. Install 4 in. sq. junction boxes and 1/2 in. conduit as required by system layout. Provide smooth, rounded bends to allow pulling of 1/8 in. air tubing. Fasten conduit securely at 6 ft. (1.8 m) intervals. 3. Feed 1/8 in. air tubing through conduit leaving several inches surplus at each junction box and detector to provide for expansion and contraction. Runs of air tubing should not be pulled tight, but looped as shown in Figure 14. 4. Terminate conduit at junction box mounted near control head. Using union fitting, run 3/16 in. air tubing to control head leaving a loop of tubing to allow for removal of control head from cylinder valve. See Figure 14.

CLIP-ON STYLE LINKAGE INSTALLATION 1. Secure the conduit to the detector bracket using the two 1/2 in. steel compression fittings on the series detector bracket or the single 1/2 in. steel compression fitting on the terminal detector bracket. See Figure 15.

CAUTION

Make certain control head is in the "SET" position with ring pin in place before installing onto cylinder valve. Failure to comply could result in an accidental cylinder actuation. Make certain control head is in the SET position and ring pin is inserted through manual release lever and secured with visual inspection seal. 2. Remove actuation shipping cap from top threads of cylinder valve. 3. Thread the control head onto top threads of cylinder valve. Do not exceed 10 ft.lb. (13.6 Nm) torque. Mechanical ANSUL AUTOMAN Release With Fusible Link When the system design allows for unsupervised, mechanical detection with pneumatic actuation, the mechanical ANSUL AUTOMAN release can be used. The fusible link detection operates the release mechanism which in turn pneumatically operates the cylinder valve. To properly install the mechanical detection system: 1. Based on the requirements listed in the System Design Section, mount the detectors in their predetermined locations. 2. Run 1/2 in. conduit from the release mechanism trip hammer assembly knockout hole to locations selected for mounting the detectors. When changing the direction of conduit, use only Ansul approved pulley elbows. Ansul offers two styles of detector bracket assemblies. Part No. 56837 and 56838 are the "clip on" style series and terminal detector assemblies. These detector assemblies use a "clip on" style linkage assembly and do not require the wire rope to be threaded through the linkage assembly while it is being fed through the detection system. Part No. 15373 and 15375 are the "hinged" style series and terminal detector assemblies. These detector assemblies use a detector linkage assembly which requires the wire rope to be threaded through each linkage assembly while the rope is being fed through the detection system.

6. To give a constant tension on the wire rope during installation of the detector linkage, hang a vise grip or other weighted device on the excess stainless steel wire rope, leaving an adequate length of spare wire rope between the locking clamp and the weighted device. NOTICE When attaching the weighted device to the excess wire rope, allow approximately 3 in. (8 cm) of wire rope for each detector linkage for proper installation.

FIGURE 17
000309

4. From the release assembly, run the stainless steel wire rope through the conduit, pulley elbows and detector brackets to the terminal detector. NOTICE If wire rope requires splicing, make certain splice is at least 12 in. (30.5 cm) away from any pulley elbow or conduit adaptor to avoid interference. 5. Feed the wire through the terminal detector bracket as shown in Figure 18 or as shown in Figure 19 if the terminal detector is mounted within a duct or header opening, and install the stop sleeve approximately 2 to 3 in. (5 to 8 cm) from the end of the wire rope. See Figure 20. Use the National Telephone Supply Company Nicopress Sleeve Tool (Stock No. 51-C887) or equal to properly crimp the stop sleeve.

Example: If the system has six detectors, there should be approximately 18 in. (46 cm) of excess wire rope between the locking clamp and the weighted device, which will be utilized when the linkage is put in place. 7. Start at the terminal detector, place the small tab of the detector linkage onto the wire rope. See Figure 21.

Make certain that the alarm chosen is compatible with the detection system control panel used.

Before installing the selector valves, it is necessary to determine the required size. This must be calculated in the Design Section by the Ansul ANSCALC Computer program. The location of the selector valve should have been determined on the piping sketch and approved by the authority having jurisdiction.

7-25

Section 7 Installation 6-19-98 REV. 1 INSTALLING ACCESSORIES (Continued) Selector Valves (Continued) For installing selector valves, complete the following: 1/2 IN. THRU 1 1/2 IN. SIZE VALVES These size valves are equipped with a threaded body. The valves are normally supplied for local pressure operation but can be ordered special for remote pressure operation. 1. At the location where the valve(s) are to be mounted, make certain they will not be subject to damage or corrosion.
!

2 IN. THRU 4 IN. SIZE VALVES These selector valves are flanged and require carbon dioxide pressure for actuation. Depending on the location of the top plate, the carbon dioxide pressure is received either locally (from the valve inlet through a specially machined port in the valve) or remotely (piped into the remote inlet from a remote pressure source). It is important to determine the type of valve needed in the installation (local or remote) and to identify which type of valve it is.
!

CAUTION

CAUTION

Make certain directional arrow on valve body points in the direction of agent flow. If valve is incorrectly installed, system will not discharge. 2. Install valve(s) in the distribution piping making certain there is enough room above the valve to install the required actuation component. Also, make certain flow direction arrow on valve body is in the correct orientation. NOTICE If valve is very heavy, precautions must be taken to properly support the weight of the valve in the distribution piping network. 3. With valve properly installed and supported, attach actuation component to top threads of valve and pipe or wire back to detection panel, releasing device, or discharge manifold. See Figure 59. 4. If required, run 1/4 in. piping from the auxiliary outlet on the valve flange to remote pressure operated devices, such as remote discharge indicator, pressure trip, or pressure switch.
(OPEN POSITION) (CLOSED POSITION)

The incorrect selection of a valve in a installation will result in valve malfunction during actuation.

To determine which type of valve you have, carefully examine the location of the top cover plate and its position on the valve body casting. The body casting has a 1/4 in. pipe port labeled Remote Inlet on the top flange casting directly above the valve outlet flange. The top cover plate has a 1/4 in. pipe port labeled Auxiliary Outlet on the side of the plate. If the Auxiliary Outlet port is directly above the "Remote Inlet" port, the valve is a LOCAL type. If the Auxiliary Outlet port is 180 opposite the Remote Inlet port, the valve is a REMOTE type. NOTICE The top plate has an unmarked 1/4 in. plug which should never be used. Connection of any piping to this port will result in valve malfunction.

Section 7 Installation 2-22-01 REV. 2 INSTALLING ACCESSORIES (Continued) Selector Valves (Continued) Complete the following steps to ensure that the valve will function as required: 1. Identify valve as previously indicated (local or remote). 2. Install valve in carbon dioxide distribution piping. The 2, 2 1/2, 3, and 4 in. valves require 3 in. x 2 in., 3 in. x 2 1/2 in., 3 in. x 3 in., or 3 in. x 4 in. flanges respectively to mate with the valve bolting circle. Flanges must be ASA 600 lb. class only. CAUTION 5. With valve properly installed and supported, attach actuation component to top threads of valve and pipe or wire back to detection panel of releasing device. See Figure 59. NOTICE When using an electric solenoid valve for selector valve actuation, only one solenoid valve is allowed per AUTOPULSE circuit. See Solenoid Valve RetroFit Instructions For Selection Valves, Part No. 415846, for detailed installation instructions. Lock Handle Stop Valves The lock handle stop valves are threaded ball valves. The valve must be installed in the direction of the flow label. When installing the valve, make certain the threads on the mating pipe are free from grit, dirt, or burrs. Care must be taken to assure that any pipe sealants used are not so excessively applied to the pipe threads that the valve cavity becomes obstructed. The valves are equipped with a monitoring switch to provide constant supervision of the valve at the control panel. Each valve shipping assembly includes detailed wiring instructions. Direction/Stop Valves Directional valves can be manually actuated in two ways; either at the valve with the hand lever or remotely with a manual cable pull station attached to a sector located on the directional valve. Before installing the valve in the carbon dioxide discharge piping, make certain there is enough clearance for either the hand lever to swing freely or the sector to rotate properly. See Figure 60 for dimension information. NOTICE Maximum distance a manual cable pull station can be located from the sector on the directional valve is 125 ft. (38.1 m). Operating force must be a maximum of 40# and require no more than 14 in. (35 cm) of travel to open valve.

The use of any flange other than specified in Step 2 will cause a mismatch of bolting circles. This will result in a hazardous application which could cause personal injury due to the high pressures involved in the carbon dioxide system. 3. If valve is a REMOTE type, connect the remote pressure piping to the valve Remote Inlet port. 4. If auxiliary piping is required, connect piping to the 1/4 in. Auxiliary Outlet port on the valve top cover plate. This port becomes pressurized when the valve is actuated. (A typical use for this is pressure switch connection to activate a discharge alarm.) CAUTION

Pre-discharge alarms, which warn personnel of an impending carbon dioxide discharge, must not be connected to this port. This port only become pressurized when the valve is activated.

PLACE SYSTEM BACK IN SERVICE (Continued) Recharge CO2 Cylinder (Continued) CV90 VALVE (Continued) 2. If pressure and/or weight must be relieved, perform the following: a. Secure cylinder. b. Make certain discharge outlet cap IS NOT in place on valve outlet. See Figure 4. NOTICE When depressing the actuation plunger, the anti-recoil will close on the valve outlet, but a small amount of CO2 will discharge out of the outlet, around the anti-recoil device.

3. With cylinder completely empty, once again, depress actuation plunger down until it bottoms out (approximately 3/8 in. (.9 cm)) and quickly release. This will cause the plunger stem to pop up flush or within .010 in. (.2 mm) below the top of the actuation attachment port. This is the correct position for proper seating.

CAUTION

Failure to use proper fill adaptor may cause the valve to actuate due to back pressure build-up. NOTICE For recharging the CV90 cylinder valve, it is necessary to have a special fill adaptor assembly, Part No. 45389. The assembly consists of a fill adaptor, having a 1/2-14 straight male thread for hose attachment and a discharge outlet cap. 4. Attach the fill adaptor to the side filling inlet of the valve. See Figure 6. The side filling inlet is the lower of the two large threaded ports. Make certain the washer is in place in the fill adaptor. Screw the adaptor on the valve filling inlet, wrench tighten. 5. Screw the knurled discharge outlet cap on the discharge outlet, the highest large threaded port on the side of the valve. See Figure 6. This should be hand tight only as the pin inside the cap acts to open the anti-recoil. By holding the anti-recoil open, the residual pressure under the main valve seat is relieved, allowing the valve to properly close.

DISCHARGE OUTLET CAP MUST NOT BE INSTALLED WHILE BLEEDING DOWN CYLINDER.

CAUTION

To prevent injury or damage, take proper safety precautions when filling carbon dioxide cylinders. 7. Attach filling hose to fill adaptor and begin filling by slowly opening the fill valve. Gradually open the fill valve until it is completely open. NOTICE If the top actuation plunger drops during recharge, the valve has opened. Stop filling and refer to instructions in O-Ring Reconditioning Kit, Part No. 415250. You may see a slight amount of residual CO2 coming out the discharge outlet during recharging. This is acceptable and will stop when the cylinder pressure increases high enough to completely seat the valve main seal. 8. Fill to cylinder capacity. NOTICE If CO2 continues to discharge out the valve outlet after recharge is complete, the main seal is leaking. Reclaim CO2 an replace main seal, using Main Seal Reconditioning Kit, Part No. 415251. 9. Check cylinder valve for leaks. 10. Mark the date and weight on the record card attached to the neck of the cylinder. Replace valve shipping cap to prevent damage during shipping and handling. CV-98 VALVE Recharge procedures for cylinder assemblies utilizing the CV-98 valve with a CV-98 electric actuator requires normal cylinder recharging along with replacing the discharged METRON PROTRACTOR located within the electric actuator.

RECHARGE CYLINDER The following steps must be followed when removing discharged cylinders from the system: 1. Disconnect the flex bend from the cylinder(s) outlet. 2. Remove all actuators from the cylinder valves. 3. If necessary, remove 1/4 in. actuation hose from pneumatic actuation port. 4. If necessary, install plug, Part No. 42410, into pneumatic actuation port and wrench tighten. 5. With cylinder secured in bracket, relieve any remaining pressure in the cylinder by completing the following: a. Make certain discharge cap IS NOT on valve outlet. See Figure 7.

Open nitrogen cylinder valve and adjust nitrogen regulator until pressure reading is 250 to 300 psi (1724 to 2068 kPa) higher than CO2 pressure indicated on CO2 pressure gauge. NOTICE Pressure in nitrogen cylinder must be 1000 psi (6894 kPa) minimum to assure that adequate pressure is available for closing MAX valve. Wait until frost clears from MAX valve body (approximately 1 to 2 minutes) before continuing to Step 31. 31. Open nitrogen supply valve for 5 seconds to close MAX valve. Then, close nitrogen supply valve. 32. Open nitrogen vent valve to relieve pressure from nitrogen manifold. 33. Slowly open CO2 vent valve. With valve fully open, venting should continue for only a short time to allow CO2 manifold to relieve. If venting continues, close CO2 vent valve, increase nitrogen regulator setting by 50 psi (345 kPa), and repeat Steps 31 and 32. Excessive nitrogen closing pressure, 1100 psi (7584 kPa) maximum, indicates a need for valve teardown, cleaning, and lubricating. 34. Remove nitrogen hose and valve closing adaptor. 35. Using soap solution or water bath, check valve core for leakage. If leakage is detected, repeat Steps 6 through 34. 36.

Section 9 Resetting and Recharge 6-19-98 REV. 1 PLACE SYSTEM BACK IN SERVICE (Continued) Recharge CO2 Cylinder (Continued) AP-8 VALVE For recharging the AP-8 cylinder valve, it is necessary to have a special filling adaptor assembly. The assembly, Part No. 45389, is composed of a hose adaptor, having a 1/2-14 male thread for hose attachment and a discharge outlet cap. The hose adaptor is attached to the side filling inlet, normally covered with a knurled cap with four holes in it. See Figure 28. Be sure that the O-Ring is in place around the charging hole in the adaptor before attaching adaptor. Install adaptor wrench tight. The knurled discharge outlet cap should be attached onto the discharge outlet, the lowest outlet on the side of the valve. See Figure 28. This should be attached hand tight only as the pin inside the cap acts to hold open the outlet check. By holding the outlet check open, the residual pressure under the main valve seat is relieved, allowing the valve to close properly. Any leak at the valve outlet indicates leakage past the main check. This could be caused by: a. Nick on the main seat. b. Foreign material on or damage to the main seal of the main check. c. The main check is not seating properly due to distortion of the valve bore. Such distortion is usually evident in the area of the safety disc due to overtorquing of the safety disc nut. A maximum torque of 23 ft. lbs. (31.2 Nm) is to be used when installing the safety disc nut. Leakage out of the top of the valve (with the bonnet cap removed), usually also indicates leakage past the main check. Leakage out the vent may be due to a number of reasons: a. Leakage past the pressure release check, Part No. 42394, due to foreign material on the seat, damage to its seal, or a scored release check seat, Part No. 42413. b. Leakage past the copper washer, Part No. 42255, below the release check seat.

When removing the piston assembly, Part No. 42416, make certain piston is not forced down before taking it from the valve body. If piston is forced down, either by hand or by the tool used to remove it, it could cause the valve to open and the cylinder to discharge. Whether leakage is due to a. or b. above, it can be determined by removing the bonnet cap and the piston assembly, Part No. 42416, and observing whether the leak is at the periphery of the release check seat (indicating leakage past the copper washer) or past the check stem (indicating leakage past the check). c. Leakage out of the vent may also be caused by leakage past the copper washer, Part No. 42387, under the valve bonnet. Leakage at the filling inlet can be caused by: a. Ice forming in the inlet or attachments b. Leakage past the filling check due to foreign material on the seat, damage to its seal, or scoring of the seat. Be sure to mark the date and weight on the record card attached to the neck of the cylinder. Replace valve shipping cap to prevent damage during handling and shipping.

CAUTION

To prevent injury or damage, take proper safety precautions when filling carbon dioxide cylinders. To recharge cylinder, place cylinder on scale and secure with bracket or chain to prevent movement during filling. Attach filling adaptor as described above. Attach filling hose to adaptor and fill with dry CO2 to proper weight. The total full weight of the cylinder and valve is stamped on the side of the valve. When the charging hose and adaptor are detached, the check in the filling inlet will seat under pressure and no further sealing is necessary. The knurled cap should be replaced on the filling inlet for protection. Check valve for possible leaks. Should a leak be discovered, the following information may help in determining what the cause is.

Inspection
Inspection is a quick check that a system is operable. It is intended to give reasonable assurance that the system is fully charged and will operate. This is done by seeing that the system has not been tampered with and there is no obvious physical damage, or condition, to prevent operation. The value of an inspection lies in the frequency, and thoroughness, with which it is conducted. Systems should be inspected at regular monthly intervals, or at more frequent intervals when circumstances require. The following visual checks should be performed during a CO2 system inspection: MANUAL PULL STATION Check that it has not been tampered with and is ready for operation. Lead and wire seal or break rod must be in place. DETECTORS Check that they are in place, not damaged or coated with dirt, grease, paint, or any contaminating substance. CONTROL SYSTEM Make certain the panel has not been tampered with and that the green power on light is illuminated. No other system lights should be on. ANSUL AUTOMAN RELEASING DEVICE Make certain the releasing device has not been tampered with, and that the visual inspection seal is not broken or missing. CYLINDER Check that the mounting brackets are secure. Visually check cylinder for any dents or signs of corrosion. CYLINDER ACTUATOR Make certain the electric, pneumatic, or manual actuator(s) are in place. Check that the actuation piping and/or wiring has not been tampered with or disconnected. DISTRIBUTION PIPING AND NOZZLES Check that the piping is secure and nozzles are in place. Make certain the nozzles are not covered with dirt, grease, or paint. Make certain nozzles are aimed in the proper direction. ALARMS AND SIRENS Check that they are in place and are not damaged. MISCELLANEOUS Make a check list of details that are important to the system which are not discussed above, i.e., has the hazard size or configuration been changed? Are dampers or doors jarred open where they shouldnt be? Are special signs in place? Are nozzles obstructed by equipment moved in the area? Are there any conditions that would hinder the operation of the system?

Typical Applications
In order to help understand the design process, twelve example hazards are covered in this section. There may be different design approaches that can be taken for each hazard. The examples are only intended to show what has to be done to complete the design and hydraulic calculations. An outline of each of the example hazards is provided and each item is listed in the numerical order in which it should be performed.

Section 12 Typical Applications

EXAMPLE NO. 1 DIP TANKS A dip tank operation may consist of a simple hand held basket of parts or may be a more complex operation with material being conveyed to the tank by an overhead monorail conveyor, or parts dipped by an overhead hoist. The tank may or may not be enclosed by a hinged lid and often has a drain board or drip area which may or may not be enclosed. The hazard to be protected would be the liquid surface of the tank, any hanging material above the drip area, the drain board/drip area, and any associated pumps within the area. If an exhaust system is utilized, this must also be protected. It is essential that all pumps, motorized conveyor, heaters, and ventilation fans be stopped. The exhaust duct, if any, must be dampered to close upon system actuation. In paint and varnish operations, it is common practice for the dipped parts to be dried in a bake oven. The authority having jurisdiction may require that the oven also be protected. Hazard The dip tank is 8 ft. 10 1/2 in. x 4 ft. 5 in. with a 6 in. free board. The drainboard is 7 ft. x 4 ft. 5 in. Nozzles are not to be closer than 30 in. from the surface. Hanging parts are within 1 ft. 6 in. from the surface. Factory Mutual is the insurance authority. ITEM NO. 1 Calculation Sheet.Fill out the calculation sheet with the information required to determine flow rate and total quantity of agent. ITEM NO. 2 Drawing.

EXAMPLE NO. 2 COMPUTER ROOM AND SUBFLOOR Electronic data processing involves storage, recall and use of information via electronic equipment. Due to the extremely high dollar value of equipment and data contained within the computer facility, the necessity for fire protection in combination with a fast responding detection system is readily apparent. The computer room and subfloor space can be protected with a total flood carbon dioxide system, especially when the computer room is normally unoccupied. Fires can occur as deep seated fires within the computer electrical insulation and in the cable bundles in the subfloor. Paper debris that has been allowed to accumulate in the subfloor is also a source for ignition. The CO2 system is designed in accordance with NFPA 12, which states that a 30%concentration must be achieved within two minutes and a design concentration of 50% must be reached within seven minutes. Design concentration must be maintained for a period of not less than twenty minutes. Factory Mutual (FM) requires a 65% design concentration if the subfloor is constructed of combustible material, or has contents other than cable. FM also requires the design concentration of 65% then be held for a minimum of thirty minutes. Occasionally, drainage is installed in the subfloor area. Provisions must be made for making the drain piping a closed system unless water is present to assist in assuring the necessary concentration. When the computer room is normally occupied, personnel safety is of first concern. Alarms must be located in the room and a mechanical time delay must be incorporated in the system to allow sufficient time for personnel to evacuate the room prior to discharge. Smoke detection is generally used. The authority having jurisdiction may have additional requirements. Hazard A computer room having dimensions of 70 ft. x 50 ft. x 8 ft. A subfloor having dimensions of 70 ft. x 50 ft. x 1 ft. No unclosable openings. Ventilation to be shut down at system actuation.

EXAMPLE NO. 3 WAVE SOLDER MACHINE A typical wave solder machine consists of an enclosure and fume exhaust system. The machine usually employs a motorized conveyor for transporting parts from flux tubs to a preheater and then to the solder pots, all of which are within the enclosure. Access doors may be installed on one or both sides of the enclosure. If these doors are always in the closed position, then the enclosure may be treated as a total flood hazard. In those cases where the doors are left open, the hazardous surface must be treated as a local application hazard. In any case, the exhaust system would be considered as a total flood hazard. A fire condition can exist when an excess amount of flux is applied to the parts and is then ignited by the preheater or the molten solder which can be at a temperature of 500 F to 550 F (260 C to 288 C). Shut down of all heating sources, pumps, conveyor and exhaust system must be automatically accomplished prior to the carbon dioxide system discharge. It is essential that the duct be dampered with the damper to close upon system actuation. Hazard Enclosure with dimensions of 16 ft. x 4 ft. x 3 ft. Two conveyor openings of 2 ft. x 6 in., down 3 ft. 6 in. from top of the enclosure. Exhaust duct is 9 in. diameter and 12 ft. long. A reserve system is required. Two design approaches: open sides and enclosed. ITEM NO. 1 Calculation Sheet.Fill out the calculation sheet with the information required to determine flow rate and total quantity of agent. ITEM NO. 2 Drawing. Complete a drawing or sketch as accurate as possible to determine pipe lengths and number of fittings. Locate and number all node points and nozzles. ITEM NO. 3 Hydraulic Input Form.With the information on pipe lengths, fittings, node points, and nozzles, fill in the input form. ITEM NO. 4 Print Out No. 1. The first print out that the computer program runs will indicate nozzle codes, discharge times, and pipe sizes. Notice that on the first print out, the computer printed out a warning stating the discharge time of 29.9 seconds was below the minimum local application time of 30 seconds. It is not possible on this example to lengthen the time by reducing the flow rate because the flow rate is already very close to the minimum. Therefore, it is necessary to add more agent.

ITEM NO. 5 Print Out No. 2.The second printout reflects the first hydraulic run using 3-100 lb. cylinders (total of 300 lbs.) instead of 3-75 lb. cylinders as first was used. Notice the nozzle orifices need to be rounded to a nominal size and then rerun to determine everything is still acceptable. ITEM NO. 6 Print Out No. 3.

EXAMPLE NO. 4 ELECTRICAL CABINETS Electrical cabinets contain equipment and wiring subject to fire due to an electrical fault. Burning insulation soon becomes deep-seated in nature.The common approach to fire protection is to totally flood the enclosure. This is accomplished by injecting a sufficient quantity of carbon dioxide within the cabinet to suppress the fire and allow a soaking period. Electrical cabinets may have a completely open interior or be compartmentalized. If the cabinet construction consists of a series of compartments, a CO2 nozzle and detector must be installed in each compartment. Cabinets may be reasonably tight or may have loose fitting doors or louver openings. If leakage is appreciable, making it difficult to maintain the required CO2 concentration over a set period of time, then an extended discharge of CO2 will be required. NFPA 12 states that a 50% concentration of CO2 is required for dry electrical fires in general and that a 30% concentration shall be achieved within two minutes with the design concentration being achieved within seven minutes. In addition, the design concentration must be maintained for a minimum of twenty minutes. Electrical power and any ventilation must be shut down prior to the CO2 discharge. Hazard The room contains a series of five electrical cabinets, each measuring 5 ft. x 4 ft. x 7 ft. high. The room is 50 ft. x 40 ft. x 10 ft. Each cabinet has a louvered door. The louvers measure 3 ft. x 4 in. and the center of each louver is 5 ft. from the top of the cabinet.

EXAMPLE NO. 5 TRANSFORMERS Transformers may be either set in the open or in vaults. Transformers in vaults are treated as surface type total flood hazards. If there is a possibility that a heated transformer core could produce a deep-seated fire in the insulation, then treating the vault as a deep-seated hazard may be justified. This should be determined by consulting with the owners and the authority having jurisdiction. Transformers located in the open, where it is impractical to flood the room, are protected by locally applying CO2 using the rate by area method. Discharge nozzles are located around the transformer in order to completely engulf the transformer with CO2. Discharge nozzles are located in accordance with UL listings regarding discharge rate, distance and area of coverage. If egress is difficult, install a time delay in the discharge piping. When the hazard cannot be reduced to equivalent surface areas, the rate by volume method of design should be employed, whereby the transformer is regarded to be within an assumed volume, with the amount of CO2 required being based on this volume. Electrical clearances should be maintained in accordance with NFPA 12. For vault protection, all openings must be sealed, doors must fit tightly and ventilation must be shut down. Any vault floor drains should be provided with a normally closed valve, which only opens by oil pressure during an oil spill. Thermal detection is recommended. Hazard Transformer vault surface type fire. A vault with dimensions of 10 ft. x 12 ft. x 15 ft. high. One unclosable opening 2 ft. x 1 ft., with its center line 3 ft. from ceiling.

EXAMPLE NO. 6 SUBFLOOR Subfloor fires can occur as deep-seated fires in electrical insulation, in combustible debris accumulated due to poor maintenance, or in the construction material of the subfloor itself. Protection of data processing subfloor spaces can be accomplished with a total flood system. The CO2 system is designed in accordance with NFPA 12. Some CO2 loss will occur through cable openings into the equipment and through perforated tile. Make a complete evaluation of possible leakage sources and add CO2 to compensate. If leakage is excessive, an extended discharge system must be considered. Subfloor airspaces are often used as a plenum for the air handling system. If the space is used as a plenum, the air handling system MUST be shut down, tightly dampered and the air handling equipment at full rest BEFORE CO2 system discharge or the CO2 will be rapidly exhausted. A 50% design concentration is required for dry electrical fires by NFPA 12. A 30% concentration must be achieved within two minutes and design concentration must be reached within seven minutes. Design concentration must be maintained for a minimum of twenty minutes. Factory Mutual (FM) requires a 65% design concentration if the subfloor is constructed of combustible material or has contents other than cable. FM requires the design concentration be held for a minimum of 30 minutes. Occasionally, drainage is installed in a subfloor area. Provisions must be made for making the drain piping a closed system unless water is present. This will assist in assuring the necessary CO2 concentrations. Smoke detectors are usually employed for early warning of fire to allow manual release of the CO2 system with thermal detectors used as a backup to allow automatic system release. When protecting a subfloor area, it is a good idea to reduce the spacing and increase the quantity of nozzles protecting this area. If a forceful discharge is used to expel the carbon dioxide, some of the agent will be lost through openings into the computers and other openings around the area. This can lead to problems meeting the concentrations required. The authority having jurisdiction may have additional requirements. Hazard A subfloor having dimensions of 70 ft. x 50 ft. x 1 ft.

EXAMPLE NO. 7 BATTERY STORAGE VAULTS Acid type batteries are normally stored and charged in rooms or vaults which have adequate ventilation, so that large amounts of hydrogen are unable to collect. Any small hydrogen fires that result in the vault can be successfully suppressed by injecting a concentration of 75% carbon dioxide. It should be noted that the carbon dioxide system is not an explosion suppression system. The carbon dioxide system must be properly grounded to eliminate any possibility of a spark in an explosive atmosphere. Objects exposed to the CO2 discharge must be grounded to dissipate possible electrostatic charges (NFPA 77). Any openings which cannot be closed, or ventilating systems which cannot be shut down, shall be compensated for by additional carbon dioxide (NFPA 12). If egress is difficult, install time delay in discharge piping. Photoelectric smoke detection is recommended. The need for a time delay device should also be addressed.

EXAMPLE NO. 8 DOCUMENT STORAGE The typical document storage room may consist of shelves containing stacks of records and documents, or the documents may be in file cabinets or cartons. A fire could result in surface burning and internal burning and therefore is considered a deep-seated type hazard. Fire suppression is accomplished by totally flooding the room with a 65% concentration of CO2, using a flooding factor of 8 cu. ft. per lb. of CO2 (NFPA 12). Additional compensating CO2 must be provided for all unclosable openings (NFPA 12). NFPA 12 states that the design concentration shall be achieved within seven minutes, but that the discharge rate shall not be less than that required to develop a concentration of 30% in two minutes. The design concentration must be held for a minimum of twenty minutes, which necessitates a fairly tight enclosure. (Per I.R.I. the minimum is thirty minutes.)

EXAMPLE NO. 9 CONTROL ROOMS As a typical control room may have most of the room volume taken up with electrical equipment and wiring, it is therefore considered a deep-seated type hazard. In accordance with NFPA 12, the room is flooded with a 50% concentration of carbon dioxide. The volume of the room determines the NFPA 12 flooding factor to be used. For spaces containing a volume up to and including 2000 cu. ft., a flooding factor of 10 cu. ft. per lb. of CO2 is to be used. For volumes greater than 2000 cu. ft., a flooding factor of 12 cu. ft. per lb. of CO2 is used. Additional compensating CO2 must be provided for all unclosable openings. NFPA states that the design concentration shall be achieved within seven minutes, but that the discharge rate shall not be less than that required to develop a concentration of 30% in two minutes. The design concentration must be held for a minimum of twenty minutes. For personnel safety, a time delay device should be incorporated in the system design. Smoke detection is recommended.

EXAMPLE NO. 10 LUBE OIL PITS Open top pits containing lube oil pumps and motors, up to a depth of 4 ft. (1.2 m) and not exceeding a depth equal to one quarter of the width, should be protected as a local application type hazard, using the rate by area method of calculation. The quantity of carbon dioxide required is determined by calculating the total floor area and utilizing UL listed nozzles. It may also be necessary to locate nozzles in the center of the pit to provide complete coverage. The discharge time must be a minimum of 30 seconds. Open pits greater than 4 ft. (1.2 m) in depth and with a depth not exceeding one quarter its width, may be protected on the basis of 4 lbs./min./sq.ft. of floor area and calculated for a minimum of a 30 second discharge. Open top pits should have nozzles located slightly above the two-thirds level above the pit floor, provided the nozzle listings are not exceeded, and that if liquid is present, there is no danger of splashing. If the pit has a partial covering of solid plate, so that the open area is less than 3% of the cubic foot volume expressed in square feet, then the quantity of CO2 required may be calculated on a total flood basis, using a factor of .25 lbs./cu.ft. (four solid walls). Any leakage from the open area should be compensated for by adding one pound per square foot of opening. Refer to NFPA-12 Appendix B for additional guidance on protection for lube oil pits. Thermal detection is recommended. The following designs are based on NFPA 12. Hazard Example A Pit is 8 ft. wide x 12 ft. long x 3.9 ft. deep. System is to be local application. Example B Pit is 10 ft. wide x 15 ft. long x 8 ft. deep. System is to be local application. Example C Pit is 12 ft. wide x 20 ft. long x 8 ft. deep and partially covered. The area which is not covered is 6 ft. x 3 ft. The system is to be total flood. Items 1 through 6 are for local application protection for pit A. Items 7 through 14 are for local application protection for pit B. Items 15 through 20 are for total flooding protection for pit C.

EXAMPLE NO. 11 GENERATORS (RECIRCULATING AND NON-RECIRCULATING TYPE) RECIRCULATING TYPE Turbine generators are generally of the enclosed recirculating type. If an electrical fault occurs which can cause a deep seated type fire in the electrical insulation, the resultant fire can be completely suppressed with carbon dioxide. This is accomplished by total flooding the enclosure with a carbon dioxide fixed fire suppression system. The CO2 system is designed in accordance with NFPA 12, which addresses the fire protection of rotating electrical equipment. The CO2 system normally consists of a two pipe system. One group of cylinders is piped to a set of nozzles to give an initial high rate of discharge. This discharge rate shall be such as to achieve a 30% concentration of CO2 within two minutes, with the design concentration to be achieved within seven minutes. (Note: Factory Mutual requires a 30% concentration in one minute.) A second group of cylinders is discharged simultaneously at a much slower rate through a separate network of pipe and nozzles. This cylinder group provides an extended discharge of CO2 for the generator deceleration period in order to maintain an inert atmosphere within the enclosure. A minimum concentration of 30% must be maintained throughout the deceleration period but for not less than twenty minutes. (Refer to NFPA 12.) Multiple generators can be protected with CO2 by use of selector valves in conjunction with a common bank of cylinders. A reserve bank of cylinders is normally required as a common back-up. NON-RECIRCULATING TYPE These generators are protected in the same manner as the recirculating type except that 35% must be added to the gas requirement for the extended discharge as determined from NFPA 12. Hazard Generator housing having dimensions of 14 ft. x 8 ft. x 6 ft. 4 in. and a pit of 13 ft. x 7 ft. 6 in. x 8 ft. No unclosable openings. Generator is a recirculating type with a deceleration period of twenty minutes. Items 1 through 9 are for protection of the recirculating generator.

EXAMPLE NO. 12 INDUSTRIAL FRYER Many types of foods are prepared by deep fat frying in oil contained in large industrial type fryers. The cooking oil is generally at a temperature of 350 F to 400 F (177 C to 204 C) and is maintained by thermostatic controls. A fire condition exists when these controls fail, allowing the temperature of the oil to rise above 700 F (371 C), which is the auto-ignition point of the oil. With a carbon dioxide system, an extended discharge of CO2 for a minimum period of three minutes is required to allow for sufficient cooling of the oil and heated metal surfaces. Several configurations of cooking fryers exist. This discussion will concern itself only with the rectangular type fryer with an elevating hood and exhaust system. The three types of design approaches to be considered are: 1. Total flooding with the hood in the down position. 2. Rate by volume local application with the hood up (entire volume will include fryer plus 2 ft. (.6m) above and on each side of the fryer). 3. A combination system from either hood up or hood down. (Total flooding if the hood is down, local application rate by area if the hood is up.) All three designs also include a local application system for the drainboard and pump. It is essential that prior to the CO2 discharge all fuel supplies, heaters, equipment, and exhaust fans be shut down and a damper in the exhaust dust be allowed to close. Since the hood and a section of the duct is capable of being raised or lowered, the interconnecting of the CO2 hood piping is by means of a looped section of high pressure CO2 hose. The first method of protection would consist of Total Flooding Protection of the hood only when it is in the down position. This is the least reliable method as it requires the hood to be in the down position to be effective. Many fires involving these cooking appliances start when the hood is in the up position for maintenance or when the operator opens the hood in the event of a fire. In these cases the system is useless. We would recommend this method be employed only if the owner and the Authority Having Jurisdiction are willing to sign a waiver stating that the fryer will only be protected when the hood is in the down position. The second method of protecting this hazard would be to design the system based upon Local Application Rate by Volume. This may be employed if the fryer is a relatively small hazard. This method will put all of the nozzles on the hood and is designed per NFPA 12 to cover an area approximately 2 ft. (.6 m) outside the fryer on all sides and the top. This will usually be the most costly method of protection. 12-214

The third method of protection is Local Application Rate by Area in conjunction with Total Flood protection. In this case the fryer is protected by the same Total Flooding system as utilized in the first method and is also protected by a Local Application system designed to cover the liquid surface when the hood is in the up position. The Local Application nozzles are positioned just outside of the hood and even with the bottom of the hood when it is in the up position. Both systems will discharge simultaneously so that the hazard is protected regardless of the position of the hood. Even though this system employs two separate systems it is usually more cost effective than the Local Application Rate by Volume system. Hazard A potato chip fryer has dimensions of 12 ft. x 3 ft. x 4 ft. when the hood is down during the frying operation. There are conveyor openings at both ends, each 2 ft. 6 in. x 9 in., with the centerline 2 ft. from the top of the hood. A drainboard is at the exit end having dimensions of 12 ft. x 3 ft. There is an adjacent cooking oil pump having a dimension of 3 ft. x 2 ft. A telescoping exhaust duct exits from the top of the hood, measuring 18 in. diameter x 40 ft. in total length. The roof fan housing measures 5 ft. x 4 ft. x 4 ft. Items 1 through 5 are protection for the hood in the down position only. Items 6 through 8 are protection for the drain board. Item 9 is a bill of materials for the hood down system and the drain board system. Items 10 through 17 are protection for hood up, rate by volume, including local application. Items 18 through 23 are protection for the hood in either the up or down position.
