Many goods carried on conveyor systems, including biomass, black and brown coal, industrial confetti (for Energy From Waste plants), recycling products and sulphur, are highly combustible and have the potential to self-ignite.
If they should combust upon an unprotected belt, the likelihood is that the system will enable fire to spread into the holding hoppers, blending, crushing or other processing areas of the plant.
As part of the operators’ risk management policies, the installation of early warning detection along a conveyor susceptible to conditions of excessive heat can avoid catastrophic fire damage and substantial consequential losses.
We offer specialist fire detection products for industrial applications and are perfectly suited to conveyor systems. Several models are available including specialist sensors with ATEX certification for hazardous dust environments and there are also glass-free, stainless steel sensors designed for use in the food processing industry.
Equipped with ranges, broilers, fryers and a myriad of other high temperature cooking appliances, no other environment demands proper fire protection more than today’s modern cooking facilities.
The Kidde WHDR system is specifically designed for the challenging demands posed by cooking applications. By offering one of the most flexible system configurations in the industry, Kidde provides efficient, economical protection for all types of cooking facilities and design layouts. Our customised approach allows you to specify the type of detection, control and cylinder sizes to fit your application. Investing in a Kidde WHDR system guarantees more than just code compliance – including UL300, NFPA 96 & 17A and AS3772 – it provides automatic, round the clock protection from the devastating consequences of fire.
How the WHDR™ system works
The kidde ind dry Chemical system offers the choice of two dry chemical agents effective on Class A, b and C fires.
It is available in two basic configurations: as a local application system or a total flood system. A local application system is designed to protect a specific piece of equipment, while a total flood system is recommended for protection of enclosed rooms or spaces. In addition to the configurations, the Kidde IND System also offers options for detection and control to create a system that will be ideal for your application.
Could you afford to have your production line shut down due to a fire? Is there room in your operating budget to replace machinery and facilities damaged by fire? If your company is typical of today’s high-productivity, cost-conscious facilities, the answer is, “No.” The Kidde IND Dry Chemical System is your best choice for protection of any industrial process or machinery where hazardous liquids or hazardous materials are involved.
Kidde Fire Systems designed the Sentinel DCS Dry Chemical System to protect haulers, graders, forestry, waste management machines and trucks, and other vehicles and machines. The DCS System employs multiple means of actuation, providing flexibility for how the system is controlled and activated. The Sentinel DCS system utilises long-proven fire suppression technology, with the multi-purpose ABC Dry Chemical agent. With fast flame knockdown and chemical interference with the propagation of flame, ABC Dry Chemical is utilised throughout the world.
Kidde Fire Systems designed the Sentinel LS Wet Chemical System to protect haulers, graders, forestry, waste management machines and trucks, and other vehicles and machines. The LS System employs multiple means of actuation, providing flexibility for how the system is controlled and activated. The Sentinel LS system utilizes the multi-purpose AquaGreen XTTM Wet Chemical agent. With fast flame knockdown and chemical interference with the propagation of flame, AquaGreen XT provides excellent class “B” and class “A” suppression. The system can also be used as a secondary securement against re-ignition after a dry chemical discharge.
The Kidde Fire Systems Sentinel NET Detection and Control System is specifically designed to protect large haulers, graders, shovels, trucks, and other vehicles/machines critical to operations. It uses a variety of technologies to detect fires. The Sentinel NET System is designed to reduce the cost of ownership and offer fast installation while minimizing the required time to maintain the system.

Stat-X® highly-advanced fire suppression technology offers a highly compact and economical fire extinguishing solution. A Stat-X® unit consists of an extremely rugged, hermetically sealed, stainless steel canister containing a stable, solid compound. The canister is durable and non-pressurised, and is capable of withstanding harsh, corrosive environments. In the event of a fire, Stat-X units automatically release ultrafine particles and propellant inert gasses which quickly and effectively extinguish fires without depleting oxygen levels and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and zero Global Warming Potential (GWP).
Compared to traditional pressurised gas or chemical agent piped systems Stat-X® advanced technology is economical to install and own. No special storage space or distribution piping is needed. And since the Stat-X® agent is generated only when the system actuates, you don’t have regular agent level inspections or containers to weigh and hydro-test over the years. When discharged, the aerosol agent remains buoyant protecting the space for an extended period of time. Afterwards, it is easily vented out for clean-up leaving little residue. Spent Stat-X® units are simply replaced and the system can be restored.
The Inert Pressure Relief Damper Fire Integrity Section is fitted with balanced weighted blades, hinged on stainless steel rods and bronze bearings. The precision engineering and blade overlap provides a positive shutter to the wall opening and minimum leakage
All Pressure Relief Dampers are available with an external Self Closing Door or ‘Cat Flap’, held in place with a magnetic catch. This provides weather proofing when used on external walls, an intrinsic sound barrier and a positive air, dust & noise seal
The Self Closing Door or ‘Cat Flap’ will provide a natural thermal barrier between the two areas, ideal when fitted in external walls. This will help to prevent condensation forming on the Inner Fire Section blades. Additional insulation can be fitted to increase the thermal and sound absorption characteristics
The Dual Flow damper Inner Fire Section is fitted with balanced weighted blades, hinged on stainless steel rods and bronze bearings. The precision engineering and blade overlap provides a positive shutter to the wall opening and minimum leakage
All Dual Flow Dampers are fitted with integral ‘Cat Flap’ or positive shutoff closing door held in place with a magnetic catch - this provides an intrinsic sound barrier and a positive air, dust and noise seal
The integral ‘Cat Flap’ will Provide a natural thermal barrier between the two areas, ideal when fitted in external walls, this will help to prevent condensation forming on the Inner Fire Section blades.

The vast majority of systems installed are Total Flood systems and all Kidde Gas Suppression Systems are approved for Total Flood applications. Kidde Carbon Dioxide Systems however, are approved for both Total Flood and Local Applications.
In a total flooding system, a predetermined amount of agent is discharged through fixed piping and nozzles into an enclosed space or enclosure around the hazard. Total flooding is applicable when the hazard is totally enclosed and when all openings surrounding the hazard can be closed automatically prior to or at the start of system discharge. The agent extinguishing concentration must be maintained for a sufficient period of time, generally a minimum of ten minutes.
Local application systems differ from total flooding in that the nozzles are arranged to discharge directly onto the fire. Local application is practical in those situations where the protected equipment can be isolated from other combustibles so that fire will not spread beyond the area protected, and where the entire hazard can be protected. One of the principal uses of local-application systems is to protect open tanks containing flammable liquids, but this technique can be generalized to protect three-dimensional hazards such as paint spray booths and printing presses. Suppression by local application is transitory, and will not be effective unless suppression occurs quickly and all potential re-ignition sources are eliminated.
