Vimpex, a leading UK manufacturer with over 20 years’ fire industry experience, has launch a range of new Hydrosense water leak detection systems. At this year’s Firex Vimpex unveiled its latest conventional Hydrosense systems and new addressable systems.
“These are exciting times for us,” says James Jones Managing Director at Vimpex Ltd. We are now offering the world’s only leak detection system built to the exacting standards of fire alarm system technology.” James continues. “Water leaks can cause significant damage to a business, in fact, it is the costliest and most common claim made by commercial customers to insurance companies. Hydrosense is designed to prevent water damage and has the potential to save businesses thousands.”
Hydrosense leak detection systems are designed to protect areas where water ingress could seriously damage electrical, communication and computer networks. It continuously monitors for water leaks around the clock, year in year out and has the facility for 72hour battery standby in the event of power failure. Should a leak be detected the control panel sounds an alarm which can be extended to a remote location. When an alarm is raised, Fire-Cryer® voice sounders can be used to broadcast an unambiguous message, avoiding confusion with other sounders on site.
The new Hydrosense systems provide both linear detection using Hydrowire and point detection using probes. Linear detection Hydrowire is a flexible cable which will continuously monitor large areas. When even a small amount of water or moisture comes into contact with Hydrowire it will trigger an alarm.
Point detection is provided by Hydrosense floor or drip tray probes, these are fixed to the floor or drip tray and adjusted to give the required detection level and connected to the control panel via a Hydrosense water leak detection module.
Utilising life safety technology in the design of Hydrosense provides the reliability and integrity of BSi approved fire detection systems, meaning there is virtually no risk of failure, downtime and significantly fewer false alarms.
