South-Tek Systems

Wet, dry or pre-action; every fire protection system is at risk of experiencing corrosion. It is one of the most important issues facing our industry today. South-Tek Systems manufactures state-of-the-art technology specializing in corrosion inhibition. But what is the driving force behind corrosion? The answer is oxygen. Wherever oxygen interfaces with metal and water, there will be corrosion. That is why South-Tek Systems’ safe, green, cost-efficient solutions are what Europe has been waiting for.

Studies show that replacing compressed air with high purity nitrogen (98%+) effectively inhibits the corrosion process in dry and pre-action Fire Protection Systems. Utilizing industry-exclusive PSA technology, South-Tek generators produce high purity nitrogen to maintain positive pressure in both dry and pre-action systems.

South-Tek’s FM-Approved and UL-Listed nitrogen generators are installed in over 10,000 locations worldwide. Now with CE approval, STS has begun to provide its award winning products in Europe.

For wet system corrosion, South-Tek manufactures wet air vents, nitrogen inerting kits, and the only water deoxygenation system in the industry.

To find out more about corrosion, nitrogen generators for dry and pre-action systems, deoxygenation for wet systems, and South-Tek in general, please contact your local distributor.

Safety Technology International

STI manufacture an extensive and unique range of fire, safety and security products, many of which will be on display at the trade shows in June.

Within the range is an audible polycarbonate protective cover designed to retrofit over manual call points, which is globally recognised by authorities as an essential fire system component on sites where the risk of false alarms is high, for example education, health care and housing.

The polycarbonate range also includes weatherproof enclosures. An ideal solution to extend the life and reliability of call points and switches exposed to harsh conditions such as factory wash down areas.

Also within the Stopper Line are alarm devices for fire extinguishers and fire doors as well as a comprehensive range of protective anti-vandal cages, resettable call points, push buttons and key switches.

The newest edition to the ReSet Call Point series is the UL listed Global ReSet. A unique manual call point that mimics the feel of breaking glass whilst offering the user the benefits and environmental advantages of a resettable operating element.

Safespill Systems LLC

Safespill Systems has developed the solution to storing flammable liquids in plastic IBC’s, drums and smaller containers at the fraction of the cost of a fire rated cut off room.

The Flammable Liquids Solution, or FLS, integrates Safespill’s flooring technology with FM approved deluge and detection systems. With a footprint of only 400 sq. ft., the system can store up to 18 plastic IBC totes stacked 3 high or a combination of totes, drums and smaller containers. An integrated deluge system floods the enclosure with 350+ GPM of sprinkler water ensuring no fire can develop inside the enclosure. Sprinkler water and flammable liquids are removed through the Safespill flooring profiles and pumped to designated containment.

The unit is completely pre-engineered and can be installed close to where the liquids are used within a facility, minimizing forklift traffic of flammable liquids. Safespill also offers a tailored spill containment and removal flooring system for loading docks, blending stations or other areas sensitive to spills. These systems can be retrofitted in existing facilities without needing to cut concrete preventing significant downtime.

Restaurant Technologies

Grease easily builds up in restaurant hoods, flues, and fans which poses a great fire risk. Keeping the kitchen consistently clean is crucial to maintaining a safe operation.

To mitigate the risk of a catastrophic fire, Restaurant Technologies has designed the AutoMist system to automatically clean hoods, flues and fans daily through a spray mixture of detergent and water. AutoMist is designed to eliminate the hazardous buildup of grease in food service kitchens.

The AutoMist system minimizes fire risk every day by keeping the hood, flue, and fan area clean. Hood inspection frequency is dependent on cooking operations. If upon inspection a hood is found dirty, cleaning must occur. With daily automatic cleanings, grease is no longer gradually building up between cleanings and making a mess of the hood system.

Unlike water wash hood technology, AutoMist covers the hood, flue and fan. The programmable delivery system that contains cleaning solution automatically controls when cleaning is initiated. By installing sprayers along the hood and up the flue to the exhaust fan, every nook and cranny gets cleaned. AutoMist can be installed into existing exhaust structures, and retrofit into most configurations.

FireDos is a German manufacturer of foam proportioning systems and monitors for firefighting. The foam proportioners are driven by the extinguishing water only and can be used in all types of fire extinguishing systems like sprinklers, deluge systems and all types of wet systems onshore and offshore as well as in firefighting vehicles.

The outstanding advantages are the complete independence from any external energy, the huge operating range, the reliable achievement of the proportioning rate, independent from flow rate and pressure condition, even changing during operation and the possibility to test the proportioning rate without producing any foam / water solution.

The extremely robust FireDos monitors are lifetime lubricated and suitable for the usage on firefighting vehicles as well as for usage in very harsh conditions such as waste burning stations, seawater atmosphere, etc.

Due to its shape and internal design, the pressure loss inside the monitor is minimized which finally results in significantly higher throwing distances. All adjustments of the nozzles such as shape (jet/spray) and flow rate (25% – 100% of the flow rate) are possible during operation.

With its high-end products, FireDos does its bit to an effective and reliable firefighting with a maximum of economical feasibility.
