INERGEN TOTAL FLOODING SYSTEMS

(300 BAR ENGINEERED SYSTEMS)

1. INTRODUCTION
This manual has been prepared primarily for the use of Designers/Installers of INERGEN (300 bar) Fire Fighting
Equipment. Its purpose is to provide general information on Inergen and its use in Fire Fighting systems and to give more
detailed information covering the design, installation, testing and servicing of these systems.

Note: The manual covers the minimum requirements for the design of Total Flooding Systems. Local
application and explosion suppression systems are not covered by the manual. Whilst marine and
inerting systems are not specifically excluded these applications require additional considerations. If
in doubt refer to the Extinguishing Technical Department.

This manual has been prepared in the light of the best information available at the time of publication. It has been
assumed that users of this manual have sufficient experience of Fixed Fire Fighting Systems to enable the correct
interpretation to be made of the contents.

It must be recognised that correct system design, installation and maintenance are fundamental to the safe and effective
use of any gaseous Fire Fighting System.

1.1 APPROVALS
The 300 bar INERGEN system is based on a number of components, some of which have been approved or listed by
VDS. See Section 8 for VDS approved configurations.

1.1.1 TEMPERATURE RANGE

The components are designed to operate in the temperature range -20C to 50C, or as otherwise stated in separate
component listings.

1.2 GENERAL INFORMATION

INERGEN has been introduced as an alternative to Halon 1301, production of which ceased at the end of 1993, under the
agreed adjustment made to the Montreal Protocol in November 1992.
INERGEN is a mixture of three naturally occurring gases that do not support combustion, nor have an impact on the ozone
layer.
The three gases, Nitrogen, Argon and Carbon Dioxide are mixed in the following proportions:
Nitrogen 52%
Argon 40%
Carbon Dioxide 8%
INERGEN storage containers are designed to hold INERGEN in gaseous form at a nominal pressure of 300 bar at 15C.
Handling and Installation of INERGEN equipment should only be carried out by persons experienced in dealing with this
type of equipment.

1.3 DESCRIPTION OF INERGEN SYSTEMS

INERGEN systems are designed to extinguish fires involving flammable liquids, gases and class A hazards, especially
electrical equipment.
The systems are designed to be total flooding and consist of a fixed supply of INERGEN connected to a piping system
with nozzles to direct the agent into an enclosed hazard. INERGEN extinguishes fires by lowering the oxygen content
below the level that supports combustion. In simple terms if the oxygen content of the atmosphere is reduced to a level
below 15%, most ordinary combustibles will not burn.
As an example an INERGEN system will reduce the oxygen content from 20.9% to approximately 12.5% whilst
increasing the carbon dioxide content from 0.03% to around 3%. The increase in carbon dioxide content increases an
individuals respiration rate and the bodys ability to absorb oxygen thus allowing the body to compensate for the lower
oxygen content.
Since INERGEN is stored as a gas, it discharges as an invisible gas, allowing people to safely exit a protected space
without obscured vision.
INERGEN systems are particularly valuable in extinguishing fires in enclosures containing hazards or equipment where
a clean, electrically non-conductive medium is essential or where the cleaning up of foam, water or powder would be
problematic.

1.4 PROPERTIES OF INERGEN

Under normal conditions INERGEN is an odourless colourless gas with a density similar to that of air.
INERGEN does not decompose when subjected to heat from a fire so avoiding hazardous breakdown products, but it must
be recognised that in a fire condition, decomposition products from the fire itself especially carbon monoxide, smoke and
heat will create a hazard in the protected enclosure and the reduced oxygen level occurring in a fire situation may lower
the resultant level below that calculated from the agent discharge alone.
The following specification applies to INERGEN.

Pressure 295 - 300 bar at 15C


Argon (Purity Class 4.6) 40% by volume 7% Relative
Carbon Dioxide (Purity Class 2.5) 8% by volume 5% Relative
Nitrogen (Purity Class 5) 52% by volume
Moisture < 0.005%

1.5 SAFETY OF INERGEN


1.5.1 GENERAL

INERGEN simultaneously reduces the oxygen concentration in an enclosure and increases the carbon dioxide
concentration.
Proper and safe INERGEN design requires that the design concentration falls within a design window that limits the upper
and lower concentrations of oxygen and carbon dioxide. (as shown table 1)
INERGEN has been accepted for use in occupied spaces when the design concentration falls within this window.
If the INERGEN design concentration must be outside the design window, special safety devices based on national
requirements have to be used.

1.5.1.1 PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS

1.5.1.2 NOISE

Discharge of an INERGEN system can cause noise loud enough to be startling but ordinarily insufficient to cause
traumatic injury.

1.5.1.3 TURBULENCE
High velocity discharge from nozzles may be sufficient to dislodge substantial objects directly in the path of the
discharge. General turbulence in the enclosure may be sufficient to move light objects, unsecured paper etc. Ceiling tiles
in the vicinity of the nozzles should be clipped in place to prevent them being dislodged during the discharge.

1.5.1.4 VISIBILITY

Under normal conditions INERGEN will not reduce visibility in the protected enclosure. However in a fire situation
especially where large amounts of smoke are produced it is likely that the INERGEN discharge will produce some
displacement of that smoke around the enclosure and this could reduce visibility in some circumstances.

1.5.1.5 EXITS

Adequate means of escape from the protected area should be provided. Doors should open outwards and be self
closing. They should be arranged to open easily from inside and any that need to be secured must be fitted with escape
overrides.

1.5.1.6 POST DISCHARGE VENTILATION

In order to allow for the ventilation of INERGEN and/or the post fire atmosphere, a normally closed means of ventilation
with extract arrangements will be required as with any gaseous extinguishing system. Any mechanical ventilation
provided should not form part of the normal ventilation system. Controls for the ventilation system should be outside the
protected enclosure and should be key operated. In some circumstances the normally closed means of ventilation may
be provided by doors and windows.

National standards or local fire brigade rules need to be taken into account and may differ from the information given
above.

16. Other information

Further Information When used in fire extinguishing systems, the quantities of INERGEN are
mostly designed so that oxygen concentrations of between 15 % by volume and
10 % by volume, and CO2 concentrations of between 2 % by volume and
5 % by volume, are present in the flooded room. No hazards for healthy people
are known if they are present in this atmosphere for a short period. However,
the combustion products generated during a fire may be highly toxic, so people
leave any room that has been flooded with INERGEN This information
reproduces the status of knowledge of the party putting the product into

2. SYSTEM DESIGN

2.1 DESIGN STANDARDS


Information contained in this manual has been based generally on the ISO 14520 Standard on Clean Agent Fire
Extinguishing Systems.
The manual has been prepared to give an understanding in the application of INERGEN systems. Systems are suitable
only for the total flooding of hazard enclosures.

2.2 DETERMINATION OF INERGEN QUANTITY

Prior to commencing with the design of any INERGEN system, the designer should have, as a minimum the following
details:
Enclosure dimensions
Specific details of the hazard
The minimum and maximum temperatures of the hazard enclosure
Height of the enclosure above (or below) sea level
Confirmation that the containment is adequate
Details of the ventilation system
Intended occupancy of the enclosure
Storage container location, (this should preferably be outside the protected enclosure), but must not be
exposed to weather or other potential hazards. Floor loading should also be taken into consideration.
Details of National laws or requirements that need to be taken into account, for example TRG 280,
which is applicable in Germany

The following notes provide additional information to assist the designer in providing the correct system for the hazard.
INERGEN is suitable for the protection of hazards involving Class A, B & C materials.
Providing a Class A fire is detected quickly, the INERGEN is discharged promptly and the concentration is maintained
for an adequate period of time to allow embers to cool, then surface fire and the embers associated with the burning of
solid materials are quickly extinguished.
INERGEN is suitable for use on fires involving live electrical equipment but is not effective on, and should not be used
to fight fires involving:
Chemicals containing their own supply of oxygen, such as cellulose nitrate.
Mixtures containing oxidising agents such as sodium chlorate or sodium nitrate.
Chemicals capable of undergoing autothermal decomposition such as some organic peroxides.
Reactive metals.
Solid materials in which fires quickly become deep seated.

Class B & C fires are quickly extinguished by INERGEN at the appropriate concentrations, but in the case of Class C
fires the risk of explosion should be carefully considered and where possible the flammable gas flow should be isolated
before or as soon as possible after extinguishment.

Determine the gross room volume. Only permanent impermeable building structures within the area may be deducted
from the gross volume.

1) Establish the minimum anticipated temperature of the protected enclosure. This should be used as the
design temperature when determining the agent quantity.
2) Determine the minimum design concentration for the hazard involved. As INERGEN is released into an
enclosure it displaces air and some INERGEN. Therefore more INERGEN is injected into an enclosure
than remains when the discharge is completed. The proportion of air that has been replaced by INERGEN
when the discharge is complete is called the design concentration.

The ratio of the volume of an enclosure to the volume of INERGEN injected into it is called the flooding factor.

The relationship between the design concentration and the flooding factor may be summarised by the following
equations.
Design Concentration = 100 - 100 / eff
Flooding Factor = ln (100 / (100 - dc))

The minimum design concentration as specified by ISO14520 is 36.5% however Tyco Safety Products would recommend
the use of a minimum design concentration for the protection of electrical hazards of 40% - flooding factor 0.51 @ 20C
(cu.m INERGEN / cu.m protected space).
Class B and C hazards will require separate consideration. A list of substances and the minimum design concentration
applicable are indicated in Table 4. These values taken from ISO 14520 are based on the extinguishing value plus 30%
and then rounded up to the next nearest full number. If any doubt exists refer to the Extinguishing Technical Department.
If the system is being designed in accordance with the VdS standard then the VdS requirement 2380 will have to be
followed.

3) Multiply the gross volume by the appropriate flooding factor from table 5 or determine the agent quantity
required by using the following formula.

Agent Quantity =V x (ln (100 / (100 - dc)) x ((0.70818 / (0.65799 + (0.00239 x t)))

Where, dc = Design Concentration, V = Enclosure Volume (cu.m), t = Enclosure Temperature.

Note: Adjust the agent quantity if the system is to be installed at altitudes that vary from sea level by more
than 11%. The multiplying factor is shown in Table 6.

4) Determine the quantity of INERGEN containers required by dividing the INERGEN quantity required by
the capacity of each INEGEN container as shown in Table 3.

V/V Is the agent volume requirements (m3/m3); ie, the quantity Q of agent required at a given hazard temperature and
a pressure of 1013 bar per cubic metre of protected volume to produce the indicated concentration at the
temperature specified. Q is given by the following formula:-

V Is the net volume of the hazard (m 3); ie, the enclosed volume minus the fixed structures impervious to
extinguishant.
SR Is the specific reference volume (m3/kg); ie, the specific vapour volume at the filling reference temperature.
t Is the temperature (C); ie, the design temperature of the protected area.
s Is the specific volume (m3/kg); the specific volume of INERGEN at a pressure of 1013 bar may be approximated
by the formula; s = K1 + K2t. Where:- k1 = 0.65799 and k2 = 0.00239
c Is the concentration (%); i.e., the volumetric concentration of INERGEN in air at the temperature indicated and a
pressure of 1.013 bar absolute.

The Halon Alternatives Group report, A review of the toxic and asphyxiating hazards of clean agent replacements for
Halon 1301, advises that INERGEN systems may be used in the fully automatic mode in occupied areas where the
oxygen level does not reduce below 12% (flooding factor 0.56).
In the event that the oxygen level is between 10% and 12% (flooding factor 0.74 - 0.56), the system may be on automatic
providing the enclosure can be evacuated in less than 2 minutes. If the oxygen level falls below 10% (flooding factor
greater than 0.74), the system must not be used in the automatic mode whilst the enclosure is occupied.
In order to determine or confirm the theorectical oxygen concentration or confirm which of the above conditions apply,
the following steps should be taken.
1) Calculate the exact volume of INERGEN to be discharged into the protected enclosure by multiplying the
number of containers to be provided by the volume of INERGEN contained in each (refer to Table 3).
2) Divide the actual volume of INERGEN being provided by the net hazard volume to determine the actual
flooding factor
3) Correct the flooding factor calculated above for temperature by dividing it by:-
0.70818 / (0.6598 + (0.002416 x t)) where, t = maximum enclosure temperature
4) Relate the actual flooding factor to the conditions of use outlined above.
Note: See also Section 1.5.1.1.

2.2.2 DISCHARGE TIME TO ACHIEVE MIN. DESIGN CONCENTRATION

The minimum design concentration is defined as the quantity of INERGEN required to achieve a concentration not less
than the extinguishing value, plus a 30% safety factor, even if the actual design concentration for the hazard enclosure is
greater than the minimum value.

For example, if the hazard consists of combustible materials that are extinguished at 28.1% to give a minimum design
concentration of 36.5% (say 37%) but the actual design is based on 40% design concentration, then the requirement is for
95% of the minimum value (0.95 x 37%) ie, 35.2% concentration to be discharged within 1 minute.
Expressed as an oxygen level the following calculation will apply: 100% - 35.2% = 64.8% of start level.
Therefore (assuming initial oxygen level of 21%) - 64.8% of 21% = residual oxygen level of 13.7%.

2.2.3 EXTENDED DISCHARGE


Should the nature of the hazard determine that an extended discharge of INERGEN is required the system must be so
configured that the requirement for 95% of the minimum design concentration for the hazard enclosure is achieved
within 1 minute.
Any extended discharge should be designed to add INERGEN at such a rate as to compensate for losses. The duration of
the extended discharge may be determined according to the nature of the hazard and the required hold time.
All extended discharge systems should be referred to the Tyco Safety Products Technical Department.

2.2.4 CONNECTED RESERVES

Connected reserves can be accommodated in the system. The means to achieve this will normally be by means of a
duplicate bank of INERGEN containers connected into a common manifold. All parts of the storage system will be
duplicated but the pipework system from the container storage area and the discharge nozzles will normally be common.

2.2.5 STOP VALVES AND DISTRIBUTION VALVE SYSTEM


Stop valves and distribution valves can be accommodated in the system. Both types of arrangement will create closed
sections of pipework and may require pressure relieving devices (pressure relief valves) to satisfy national standards.
The methodology by which to achieve the many configurations possible, in systems using distribution valves, will require
the use of non-return valves, pilot line bleed valves, and may require the use of non-return valves, strategically positioned
in the pneumatic pilot system. An example of a typical layout is shown in Fig. 5.
The safe use of INERGEN should always comply with recognised national standards. For information on the developed
concentrations please see Table 7: Achieved Gas Concentration

2.2.6.1 MAIN AND RESERVE SYSTEM - FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

Below is a functional description of the system as shown in Fig 1.


If fire breaks out it is detected in the early stages by the automatic detectors (smoke detectors, heat detectors etc.) (102)
positioned in the extinguishing area and is signalled to the detection and control panel (101). Alternatively, a manual
release push button (103) is also provided: this is positioned in the extinguishing area and can be operated manually be
the staff.

Within the electical detection and control panel (101) the signal from either the automatic detectors (102), or the manual
release (103), is processed internally, and initialy the following functions are carried out.

The accoustic alarm devices (104) are switched on in the extinguishing area (two independant alarm
devices)
Visual indicators and alarms, if present, are switched on.
An adjustable delay period of between 10 and 60 seconds starts, enabling the staff the leave the extin-
guishing area. This delay can be achieved in one of two ways, either:

a) electonically, by the module in the fire detection and control panel (101), or
b) via a stepper motor (106) and controller (101.1) with pulse technology.

The air conditioning / ventilation system is switched off, together with any operating equipment which
may be present such a power supply (107).
A signal is given to close doors or other operational enclosures (107)
An alarm signal is sent to a permantly occupied location if one has been identified.
Other secondary signals are possible on a project specific basis.

After the delay period has elapsed, the actiation signal is given to the components of the extinguishing system:

a) signal to the electric actuator (108) on the pilot cylinder (201), or


b) the stepper motor (106), as part of the pulse technology, has run out and
manualy opens the cylinder valve (202) on the pilot cylinder (201).

When this happens, a release membrane is destroyed, causing gas from the pilot cylinder to move the valve piston
downwards, which in turn opens the pilot cylinder valve (202), which can no longer be closed. The pilot cylinder gas,
INERGEN 200 bar, flows via the pilot pipe (203) to the connected container valves (302) of the extinguishing agent
containers (301)

The container valves (302) of the container battery that is to be opened are opened pneumatically.

The extinguishing agent, INERGEN 300 bar, flows via the pressure reduction unit (303): with its pressure reduced to
200 bar, it flows through the respective container connection hose (304) and the non return valve (305) into the manifold
(501).

The extinguishing agent, which has already been reduced to a pressure of 200 bar, flows on through the downstream
pressure reduction devise (405) where the pressure is further reduced from 200 bar to 60 bar.
The INERGEN then flows into the distribution pipe (503) and on to the extinguishing area where it exits the pipe through
the extinguishing nozzles (504) and is distributed in the room.

2.2.7.3 LOCK OFF UNIT FOR SINGLE BANK SYSTEMS

Application And Function


The Lock Off Unit can be used to isolate the supply of pilot gas from the main container. It is is located in the actuation
line between the pilot cylinder and the pneumatic actuator of the main container as shown in Fig: 2. It is also shown as
item 6 in Fig: 3.
By closing and locking off the ball valve (C), the source of pneumatic pilot gas is isolated from the pneumatic actuator
of the main container therefore preventing it from operating.
Under normal operating circumstances the ball valve (C) is locked in the open position, thus ensuring that when a
pneumatic source becomes available, at the time of system discharge, the main containers pneumatic actuator is able to
operate.
The Lock Off Unit consists of a 2/2-directional ball valve with a
relief bore hole and built on parts as described in the table below.
Two switches can be built onto the device to monitor whether the
ball valve is in the open or closed position. For further information
please see technical data sheet 5-125-01E.
The padlock supplied with the product can be used to secure the ball
valve in either of the end positions.
The ball valve must be installed in the correct orientation as shown
opposite. 210mm
Operation and Maintenace
If the lock off unit is properly used, it requires no maintainance.
Damaged lock off units must be replaced immediately. The
warnings in the Operating Instructions for the extinguishing system
must be followed.

2.2.8.1 DISTRIBUTION VALVE SYSTEM - FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

AREAS WITH IDENTICAL TIME DELAYS

Below is a description based on the the system as shown in Fig 5.


If fire breaks out it is detected in the early stages by the automatic detectors (smoke detectors, heat detectors etc.) (102)
positioned in the extinguishing area and is signalled to the detection and control panel (101). Alternatively, a manual
release push button (103) is also provided: this is positioned in the extinguishing area and can be operated manually be
the staff.

Within the electical detection and control panel (101) the signal from either the automatic detectors (102), or the manual
release (103), is processed internally, and initialy the following functions are carried out.

The accoustic alarm devices (104) are switched on in the extinguishing area (two independant alarm de-
vices)
Visual indicators and alarms, if present, are switched on.
An adjustable delay period of between 10 and 60 seconds starts, enabling the staff the leave the extin-
guishing area. This delay can be achieved in one of two ways, either:

a) electonically, by the module in the fire detection and control panel (101), or
b) via a stepper motor (106) and controller (101.1) with pulse technology.

The air conditioning / ventilation system is switched off, together with any operating equipment which
may be present such a power supply (107).
A signal is given to close doors or other operational enclosures (107)
An alarm signal is sent to a permantly occupied location if one has been identified.
Other secondary signals are possible on a project specific basis.

After the delay period has elapsed, the actiation signal is given to the components of the extinguishing system:

a) signal to the solenoid valve (204.4) responsible for the extinguishing area to be flooded and
to the electric actuator (108) for the pilot cylinder (201): or
b) signal to the solenoid valve (204.4) responsible for the extinguishing area to be flooded and to
the stepper motor (106, which has run out) mechanically opens the cylinder valve (202) on
the pilot cylinder (201).

In both cases a membrane is destroyed. As a result of this it is no longer possible to close the pilot cylinder valve (202).
The pilot gas, INERGEN 200 bar, flows into the ESPL-3 (204). Here the stream of pilot gas is split up into two flows.
The first of these flows at full pressure to the transmitter valves (204.7, one per container bank) which are still closed.
The second flow, after reducing its pressure to 10 bar, flows through the solenoid valve (204.4, one per extinguishing
area) which has already opened allowing the flow to continue onto to the pneumatic drive (402) which then opens the
associated distribution valve (401).
In addition, pilot gas is supplied to the input of the confirmation valve (204.5), which is still closed.

When the distribution valve (401) has reached the open position, a signal is sent to the detection and control panel (101)
by the position switch (403). After this signal has been processed within the panel the confirmation valve (204.5) for the
extinguishing area that is to be flooded is activated.

EQUIPMENT: INERGEN 300 Bar

ISSUE No. & DATE: 1.00 16/12/05 CN

On opening the 10 bar pilot gas flows automatically via the pneumatic directional valves (204.8.1) in the control unit
(204.8) of the EPSL-3 (204) to one or more transmitter valves (204.7). The 10 bar signal is used here to send pilot pressure
of 200 bar to the necessary container bank/s which are required to flood the extinguishing area in question. The 200 bar
pilot gas flows via the optional Main / Reserve switchover unit (205) to the extinguishing agent bank.
Example:
Extinguishing area A requires bank 1
Extinguishing area B requires bank 2
Extinguishing area C requires banks 1 and 2.
The container valves (302) of the corresponding container bank/s are opened pneumatically. The extinguishing agent
flows via the pressure reduction unit (303), reduced to a pressure of 200 bar, via the respective container connection hose
(304) and the non return valve (305) into the manifold (501). The connection pipe (502) to the distribution valves (401)
is connected here.
The extinguishing agent, which has already been reduced to a pressure of 200 bar, flows through the opened distribution
valve (401) and downstream pressure reduction device (405), which reduces the pressure from 200 bar to 60 bar, and then
through the pipe (503) to the extinguishing area where it exits from the extinguishing nozzles (504) and is distributed in
the room.

AREAS WITH DIFFERENT TIME DELAYS

Below is a description based on the the system as shown in Fig 5.

If fire breaks out it is detected in the early stages by the automatic detectors (smoke detectors, heat detectors etc.) (102)
positioned in the extinguishing area and is signalled to the detection and control panel (101). Alternatively, a manual

After the delay period has elapsed, the actiation signal is given to the components of the extinguishing system:

a) signal to the solenoid valve (204.4) responsible for the extinguishing area to be flooded: or
b) The stepper motor (204.6) has run out and opens the integrated control valve mechanically.

Due to the activation of the area specific solenoid valve (204.4) or (204.6) the pilot pressure of 10 bar is fed to the
pneumatic drive (402) which opens the associated distribution valve (401). In addition, the input of the confirmation valve
(204.5, which is still closed) is supplied with pilot gas.

When the distribution valve (401) has reached the open position, a signal is sent to the detection and control panel (101)
by the position switch (403). After this signal has been processed within the panel the confirmation valve (204.5) for the
extinguishing area that is to be flooded is activated.

On opening the 10 bar pilot gas flows automatically via the pneumatic directional valves (204.8.1) in the control unit
(204.8) of the EPSL-3 (204) to one or more transmitter valves (204.7). The 10 bar signal is used here to send pilot pressure
of 200 bar to the necessary container bank/s which are required to flood the extinguishing area in question. The 200 bar
pilot gas flows via the optional Main / Reserve switchover unit (205) to the extinguishing agent bank.

Example:
Extinguishing area A requires bank 1
Extinguishing area B requires bank 2
Extinguishing area C requires banks 1 and 2.

The container valves (302) of the corresponding container bank(s) are opened pneumatically. The extinguishing agent
flows via the pressure reduction unit (303), reduced to a pressure of 200 bar, via the respective container connection hose
(304) and the non return valve (305) into the manifold (501). The connection pipe (502) to the distribution valves (401)
is connected here.

The extinguishing agent, which has already been reduced to a pressure of 200 bar, flows through the opened distribution
valve (401) and downstream pressure reduction device (405), which reduces the pressure from 200 bar to 60 bar, and then
through the pipe (503) to the extinguishing area where it exits from the extinguishing nozzles (504) and is distributed in
the room.

2.2.8.2 WELDED DISTRIBUTION PIPE VALVE ASSEMBLY

An means of mounting distribution valves when a fully VdS complient system is not required is by utilising the welded
distribution pipe assembly as shown below.
See section 3 of this manual for further information on the distribution valve used in the system shown.

Note: The dimension shown for the height to the top of the container fixing bar from floor level (1738mm) is
the correct dimension when using 80 Litre containers.
The room height dimension shown (2213mm) would be the minimum height requirement of a room
used for container storage if standard components are used as shown. This is based on the use of 80
Litre containers and a dimension of 100mm from the centre line of the distribution pipework to the
storage rooms ceiling.

2.2.8.5 ALTERNATIVE A - SCREWED DISTRIBUTION PIPE VALVE ASSEMBLY


LOCK OFF UNIT FOR DISTRIBUTION VALVE

Application And Function


The Lock Off Unit can be used to isolate an extinguishing area by inhibiting the automatic operation of the distribution
valve associated with that area.
The inlet to the lock off device is connected to the distribution valve pilot pipe (A) and its outlet (E) is connected to the
pneumatic drive of the distribution valve.
By closing and locking off the ball valve (C), the pneumatic source required to actuate the the distribution valves
pneumatic drive is isolated and therefore inhibiting the automatic operation of the distribution valve.
Under normal operating circumstances the ball valve (C) is locked in the open position, thus ensuring that when a
pneumatic source becomes available, at the time of system discharge, the distribution valve is able to operate.
The Lock Off Unit consists of a 2/2-directional ball valve with a relief bore
hole and built on parts as described in the table below.
Two switches can be built onto the device to monitor whether the ball valve A B
is in the open or closed position. For further information please see technical
data sheet 5-125-01E.
The padlock supplied with the product can be used to secure the ball valve
in either of the end positions.
The ball valve must be installed in the correct orientation as shown opposite.
Its location within the distribution valve arrangement is also shown in the C
diagram on the previous page.

Operation and Maintenace


If the lock off unit is properly used, it requires no maintainance.
Damaged lock off units must be replaced immediately. The
warnings in the Operating Instructions for the extinguishing
system must be followed.

Table 8: Estimated Pipe Diameters

2.4 DESIGN DRAWINGS

Following receipt of instructions from the client to proceed with an installation, system layout drawings must be prepared
which contain the following information as a minimum:
Extent of the protected enclosure.
Details of the hazards.
Location of the INERGEN containers and associated equipment.
Position of Pressure Reducing Unit and orifice size.
Layout, type and size of pipework.
Position of nozzles and orifice size.
Calculations to show how the quantity of INERGEN and number of containers were determined.
Over pressurisation vent calculations.

Drawings are to be submitted to the client for approval and installation must only proceed against approved drawings.

2.5 ROOM INTEGRITY AND PRESSURISATION

The successful performance of a Gaseous Total Flooding system is largely dependent on the integrity of the protected
enclosure. It is strongly recommended that a room integrity test is performed on any protected enclosure to establish the
total equivalent leakage area and enable a prediction to be made of the enclosures ability to retain INERGEN. The
required retention time will vary depending on the particulars of the hazard but will not normally be less than 10
minutes. Longer retention times may sometimes be necessary if enclosures contain hazards that may readily become
deep seated.
In considering room integrity the designer should be aware that the discharge of any gaseous extinguishing agent into an
enclosure will give rise to a change in the pressure within that enclosure, which under some conditions could affect the
structural integrity of the enclosure.
In most cases the protected enclosure will require a pressure relief device and in all cases the client must be made aware
of the pressurisation level expected (from calculation) within the enclosure.

In order to calculate the venting area required the formula on the next page may be used:

2005 Tyco Safety Products PAGE 29 of 133


INERGEN 300 Bar
14A-09
1.00 16/12/05 CN

In order to calculate the venting area required the following formula may be used:

Q
A = ------------------------------------
P V HOM

Where: A = Opening in sq. m


Q = INERGEN flow rate in cu. m/sec*
P = Max. Allowable Pressure Increase in Pascals **
VHOM = Specific Volume of the Homogeneous air / INERGEN mixture
(normally 0.77 cm/kg is a good average for 40% concentration)
The above formula may be used for simple openings with no ductwork.
* As the initial flow of INERGEN is greater at the start of the discharge than at the end, it is necessary to base Q on the
peak flow rate. The figure used is likely to be 4.5% of the design quantity, but the actual figure used must be taken from
the flow calculations.
** A value of 100 Pascals should be used if there is no other value offered by the client or clients representative.

2.6 DETECTION AND CONTROL SYSTEMS

Detection and control systems associated with fixed fire fighting systems are outside the scope of this manual. Reference
should be made to the applicable company technical manuals and the relevant national standards and code of practice for
the operation of fire protection measures pertaining to the electrical actuation of gaseous total flooding extinguishing
systems.

2.7 ELECTRICAL EARTHING AND SAFETY CLEARANCES

For guidance on the requirements for earthing and safety clearances refer to the appropriate section of the design standards
listed in Section 2.1.

2.8 FLOW CALCULATIONS


2.8.1 SOFTWARE INPUT DATA

Once the gas quantities and nozzle flow rates have been determined, an isometric sketch of the system should be
prepared. The sketch will show:
1) The number of containers.
2) The length of every pipe on the system.
3) Node numbers associated with every pipe. A node number is given at the following locations:
a) Each point in the container manifold where the flow from one or more containers enters the manifold.
b) At each change in pipe diameter.
c) At each location of a tee in the system, ie, where the flow rate changes.
d) Either side of the orifice plate.

The first container in the system is considered to be node 1. Where the discharge hose enters the manifold is considered
to be node 2. Node 3 will be where the second container discharge hose enters the manifold. This continues until the
discharge nozzles are reached. At this point the nozzles are given node numbers commencing with the number 301
The program will calculate the pressure drop in the system and will provide pipe diameters, orifice plate sizes and nozzle
sizes.

2.8.2 COMPLETING THE SYSTEM DESIGN

Once the program has completed the calculations and the Design Engineer has taken account of any warnings issued, the
appropriate nozzles and pressure reducing units are to be ordered.
The calculated nozzle and pressure reducing unit orifice areas are used to provide drilling information from the Tables in
Sections 2.9 and 2.10.

2.9 NOZZLE DRILLING DETAILS

Tables 9 to 11 details all the available orifice sizes for each type and size of nozzle. When ordering it is necessary to quote
the nozzle part number and orifice size.
The nozzle pattern used in any system design will depend on the location of the nozzle within the system.
The nozzle diameter and orifice diameter used in any system design will depend on the result of the system hydraulic
calculations.

3.2 INERGEN CONTAINER VALVE - CI 12-8

The CI 12-8 quick action valve is a container valve for INERGEN which can be opened automatically or manually. The
automatic opening procedure can be initiated electrically and / or pneumatically.
Functional Description of the CI 12-8 Valve
Electrical Release
The actuating disk in the valve is punctured by means of Release Head III and actuator SF-2 or the Step Motor SMV-1
delay device. The gas that is released presses the piston downwards so that the valve opens. The valve only closes again
when the container has been emptied.
Pneumatic Release
The valve can be actuated pneumatically via a control cylinder or
pilot cylinder. In both cases the pressure is between 200 and 240
bar.

Pilot Cylinder
Pilot cylinders with a filling pressure of 200 bar are used
(maximum developed pressure 240 bar at 50 degrees C)

To close the valve, it is necessary to interupt the supply of pilot


pressure in the valve and to relieve the pressure. The valve will then
close automatically due to effect of the remaining container
pressure and the built in closing spring.
To protect the container against inadmissible excess pressure (due
to the effects of temperature for example) the valve is fitted with a
bursting cap with an operating range of between 410 and 450 bar.

Valve Components
1) Outlet for extinguishing agent and filling
nozzle with protective cap.
2) Connecting cap ASK-2 with intake for pilot
gas
3) Test connection (special thread)
4) Safety device for bursting disk
5) Container screwed end:

3.3 ORIFICE AT THE CONTAINER - DRE-V/S (reduction from 300 bar to 200 bar)

The DRE-V/S pressure reducing unit is used to


reduce the pressure in a 300 bar system. The unit is
fitted at the outlet of the 300 bar valve, CI 12-8, and
it reduces the container pressure from 300 bar to 200
bar. The connection hose can be connected directly to
the DRE-V/S.

3.6 SOLENOID ACTUATOR - STANDARD


The SF-2 solenoid actuator is used to electrically operate the container valve. The
solenoid is operated at a nominal voltage of 24V d.c. (Power consumption
- 15 Watts) and rated to IP65.
It is fitted onto the Release Head III by means of a knurled swivel coupling which
enables the unit to be positioned as preferred for electrical connection.
The solenoid actuator is normally fitted to the container designated as the Pilot
container. The actuator is an electro-mechanical device which when energised
causes the central pin to move downwards, which pushes the central pin of the
Release Head III downwards which in turn punctures the burst disc in the valve.

Order Number KO 246 032 6

The power lead fitted with a


DIN plug for connecting to
the solenoid is supplied with
the solenoid actuator.

3.7 SOLENOID ACTUATOR - EXPLOSION PROOF Indicator


This version of the solenoid actuator is used to electrically operate the
container in the same way that the standard actuator does, but it is provided
with protection to EEx me II T4, IP65.

The solenoid is operated at a nominal voltage of 24V d.c. (Power consumption


- 9 Watts) and is available in other voltages and/or types of current rating.

It is fitted onto the Release Head III by means of a knurled swivel coupling
which enables the unit to be positioned as preferred for electrical connection.

The solenoid actuator is normally fitted to the container designated as the


Pilot container.

The actuator is an electro-mechanical device which has a central pin located


within it. When the actuator is energised, the central pin moves downwards,
this in turn pushes the central pin of the Release Head III downwards
puncturing the burst disk inside the CI 12 quick action valve causing it to open.

Fig 17: EEx Electric Actuator

3.8 SOLENOID RESETTING TOOL

The solenoid resetting tool is used to reset both the standard (SF-2) and
the explosion proof solenoid actuator following operation.
The resetting tool is to be fitted into the connecting thread on the
solenoid actuator and is turned until it stops. A click will be heard to

3.21.2 MANUAL PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE - ELV-1

Application
An ELV-1 Pressure Relief Valve is required for each actuation line.
The ELV-1 Pressure Relief Valve is used to manualy relieve to
atmosphere the residual pilot pressure in the actuation line of an
extinguishing system or, in the case of distribution valve systems,
the actuation lines of individual battery groups within the system.

Use And Maintenance


The ELV-1 Pressure Relief Valve is used in conjunction with an
Automatic Vent Valve SGV-1, see below.
Using a screwdriver, or a similarly shaped object, the relief valve
can be activated as shown in Fig 3.xx and by doing so the pilot line
will be depressurised.
The actuation line must be free of impurities.
If used correctly the relief valve is maintenance free.
Any valves that become damaged must be imediately replaced with
new ones.

3.21.3 AUTOMATIC VENTING VALVE - SGV-1

Application
An SGV-1 Vent Valve in conjenction with the an ELV-1 Pressure Relief Valve is required for each actuation line
The SGV-1 Vent Valve is used to automatically relieve to atmosphere any minor flows of pilot gas that might occur due
to leakage in the pilot system.
Such a leak could build up pressure in the actuation line of the extinguishing system or, in the case of a distribution valve
system, the actuation lines of the individual container banks within the system, and unles a SGV-1 Vent Valve is utilised
this pressure build up could otherwise lead to the accidental discharge of the container bank / extinguishing system.
When the pilot sytem is operated the pressure within the actuation line closes the SGV-1 Vent Valve preventing escape
of the pilot gas to atmosphere. Therefore the SGV-1 Valve must only be used in conjunction with the ELV-1 Pressure
Relief Valve (see above) as this provides a means to relieve the trapped pressure with the actuation line.
Use And Maintenance
Install at the end of each of each actuation line.
The actuation line must be free of impurities.
If used correctly the vent valve is maintenance free.
Any valves that become damaged must be
imediately replaced with new ones.

3.23 TOTAL FLOODING NOZZLE - STANDARD

The total flooding nozzles are designed to uniformly distribute INERGEN throughout the hazard area. All nozzles are
specifically drilled to suit the individual design requirements as established by the hydraulic calculations.
These nozzles are permitted to cover an area of up to 95sq metres based on a maximum nozzle height restriction of
3.7 metres. However, this height restriction can be increased to 5 metres, but in doing so the area coverage must be
reduced from 95sq meteres to 70sq metres maximum per nozzle. The total volume being protected by one nozzle must
not exceed 352 cu. metres.
Where the size of any hazard enclosure determines that one nozzle does not provide coverage within the above parameters
the hazard should theoretically be sub divided into appropriately sized modules.

Note: For systems fully complying with the VdS standard the area of coverage per nozzle is limited to 30sq
metres. In addition only VdS approved nozzles GRD 1/2" and GRD 1 nozzle may be used.

Nozzles are available with a 180 pattern or 360 pattern and with either
BSPT or NPT thread.
The 180 pattern nozzle should not be located in the corner of a room, Orifice Diameter
nor should it be located more than 300mm from the wall. Is Stamped Here
It is recomended that 360 pattern nozzles are placed at least 1 metre
away from the wall.
Nozzle Weights: 1/2" = 0.05Kg, 1 = 0.15 Kg, 1 1/2" = 0.35 Kg,
The hexagon part of the nozzle is notched to indicate BSPT thread.
Chrome plated trim rings are available for 1/2" and 1" nozzles.
The maximum throw for a 180 pattern nozzle is 7.775m.
The maximum throw for a 360 nozzle is 5.5m.

3.25 GAS EXTINGUISHING NOZZLE - GOD (DIN Thread VdS Approved)

Application
The cup like design of the GOD Local Application Nozzle gives it the ability to discharge INERGEN in a soft, mist like
manner. It is this characteristic of the nozzle that allows it to build up an extinguishing concentration local to the object
being protected.
As with total flood nozzles, the GOD nozzle is installed on the pipe network of the extinguishing system and the required
orifice size is established by means of hydraulic calculations at the system design stage. The nozzles location within the
system should be determined at this time.
E
The GOD Local Application Nozzle can be used in cable voids as part
of a larger extinguishing system. G
Use And Maintenance
The nozzle should be thoroughly inspected and overhauled as part of
the maintenance for the extinguishing system. During the maintenance
they should be cleaned to remove any dust, fibres, paint or other dirt.
Any damaged nozzles must be immediately replaced with new ones.

3.30 DISTRIBUTION VALVE ASSEMBLY - (NON VdS SYSTEMS)

The distribution valve is used in applications where multiple areas require to be protected from a single bank of
containers.
The valves are operated pneumatically by a pilot cylinder (P/No. 304.208.002) or manually by use of the manual
operating lever. A typical pilot cylinder operated distribution valve system is shown in Fig 1 - page 14.
The distribution valve requires a minimum pressure of 7 bar to satisfactorily operate it and the precise configuration of
the actuation system is critical in ensuring that the system operates as intended. The actuation port is 1/4" NPT (fit stud
coupling 309.010.003 to allow connection to the actuation tubing).
The valve is supplied in 50mm NPT connections as standard, but is available in other sizes to order.
Distribution valve assembly comprises of ball valve/actuator, pressure regulator, bleed valve and pressure relief valve.

3.31 DISTRIBUTION VALVE ASSEMBLY - HD-BV / 3 (VdS SYSTEMS)

The type HD-BV/3 high pressure distribution valve assembly is closed and unpressurised when in standby mode.
The HD-BV/3 high pressure distribution valve assembly performs two duties, it acts as both a distribution valve and a
pressure reduction unit (200 bar to 60 bar) by utilising the orifice plate that is included as part of the HD-BV/3 assembly.
The required orifice size is established by means of hydraulic calculations at the system design stage.
The valve will open after the integrated activation device has been triggered. Once open, the distribution valve allows
INERGEN to flow into the pipe network for its respective extinguishing area. The remainder of the distribution valves
remain closed and therefore prevent flow of INEGEN into the other extinguishing areas.
In order to open the distribution valve the attached pneumatic actuator is exposed to pilot gas at a pressure of 10 bar. After
a discharge, the distribution valve is closed manually, for details of this please see the relevant operating instructions.
The outlet pipe from the orifice unit must be the same diameter as the orifice unit, reduction of the pipe diameter at the
exit of the orifice plate unit is not permitted.

3.32 PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE

In the event that INERGEN becomes trapped in a closed section of pipework it is necessary to provide a means for it to
be safely vented. Two methods may meet this requirement:
1) Controlled operation of a distribution valve to allow INERGEN into the protected space.
2) By means of the pressure relief valve and manual overide arrangement as shown below.

Note: National standards may not require the use of the


pressure relief arrangement as shown on this page.
Please check with appropriate national standards.

The INERGEN pressure relief valve arrangement as shown below is
designed to automatically relieve excess pressure in the pipework
system and would normally be fitted in all closed sections of pipework,
i.e., between the containers and stop valves, etc. It is factory set to
open at approximately 250 bar, there is no on-site adjustment allowed.
It is a requirement that the outlet from the valve is piped to atmosphere
away from personnel. A manual bypass valve must be incorporated into 1
the pressure relief arrangements to allow for trapped INERGEN to be /4 NPT

3.34 PILOT CYLINDER

Pilot cylinders are filled with INERGEN gas and are pressurised to 200 bar.
They are used in conjunction with the release head III to pneumatically
operate the main container of the INERGEN fire suppression system.
A pilot cylinder can also be actuated manually, using the local manual
actuator and release head III. It may also be actuated electrically using the
solenoid actuator or the step motor delay device, again in conjunction with
release head III.
If the INERGEN fire suppression system is designed to utililise
distribution valves, a pilot cylinder may also be used to operate a
distribution valve as well as the main container for the associated area.

Pilot cylinders are manufactured in accordance with 99/36/EG (TPED)


and are pressure tested to 250 bar. pilot cylinders are coloured grey to
EN 1089 with a bright green top dome. The Cylinders are fitted with the C
CI 12-6 container valve, which has a nominal burst disk rating of 270 Bar.
(At 70 degrees C, +30 bar - 10 bar. At 20 degrees C 300 bar maximum)

The size of the pilot cylinder required will depend on the number of main B
(80 Litre) containers the pilot cylinder will be required to pneumatically
actuate. Please see details below:
8 Litre Pilot Cylinder: Used when then are 2 - 40 main containers.

4. INSTALLATION INFORMATION

This section provides general guidance on the installation of INERGEN Fire Fighting Systems. However, it is of
paramount importance that persons involved in the installation of this equipment have had previous experience in the
installation of this or similar equipment. Appropriate items of safety equipment such as safety shoes should be worn by
those involved in the installation work.
Equipment is to be installed in accordance with an approved drawing. It is not permitted for changes to equipment,
pipework or nozzle positions to be made without the authority of the Extinguishing Systems Design Engineer.
It should be noted that special components have been designed to allow for the safe assembly of the high pressure side
of the installation (the sections up to and including the pressure reducing units).
Under no circumstances should alternative components be used in this part of the installation.
The components are supplied with a variety of left hand (referred to as L), right hand (referred to as R) and left and right
hand threads (referred to as RL etc.) to ease assembly. All left handed threads are identifiable by a groove around the
circumference of the component.
Gas tight seals are made using O-rings. All O-rings should be lubricated with non-acidic grease. O-rings required to
make gas tight seals are supplied as part of union joints/pressure reducing device and do not need to be ordered separately.

4.1 DELIVERY AND HANDLING OF EQUIPMENT

1) Check all equipment delivered against the Despatch Note. Notify the extinguishing stores immediately if
there is any discrepancy between the equipment received and that indicated on the Despatch Note.
2) Store all equipment in a dry room at a temperature between 0C and 50C and protect from direct sunlight,
until it is required for installation. Keep containers upright and secure them so that they cannot fall over.
Make no attempt to move INERGEN containers unless they are fitted with transport caps and
anti-recoil caps.
3) It is usual for, but not essential, for the installation to start with the fitting of the containers. To move
INERGEN containers use a trolley and if containers are to be raised over steps etc; ensure that appropriate
lifting gear is employed. Under no circumstances must containers be rolled or dropped into position.
Until containers are fully connected into a completed pipework system the transport caps must
not be removed except temporarily to allow for the fitting of the container retention ring.

4.2 CONTAINER FIXING

1) The container bank will be constructed to allow fitting to wall/supporting structure or free-standing us-
ing the appropriate components detailed in the manual. Follow the instructions below depending on which
fixing method is required.
2) Check that there is at least 300mm free access at the ends of the container bank, and at least 1000mm free
access at the front of the bank.
3) Ensure that the floor and walls are flat. If it is suspected that the floor is likely to become wet, place the
containers on metal grating to keep them off the floor. The metal grating will raise the height of the bank
by 30mm.
4) The container bank will be made up of one or more manifolds. Manifolds come in two types:
for single bank use, where all inlets are used.
for double bank use, where all or most of the inlets are used.
5) For container banks to be fixed to a wall, mark the positions of the retention bars on the wall, for an
80 Litre container the top face of the fixing bar will be 1738mm from the floor, and fix them to the wall.
It may assist with the installation to bolt two or more retention bars together before fixing to the wall.

2005 Tyco Safety Products PAGE 95 of 133


INERGEN 300 Bar
14A-09
1.00 16/12/05 CN

6) For 'free standing' container banks, mark the position of the free standing posts on the floor and fix to the
floor. Use a spirit level to ensure that the post is vertical. Bolt the retaining bar(s) to the post and then fix
the other free standing post.
7) Bolt the two manifold brackets to the retention bars in the appropriate place.

4.3 INSTALLING MANIFOLDS

1) On systems using between one and two rows of containers the following steps will require to be
completed. To install the manifold, check that the end cap has an 'O' ring fitted, screw the end cap onto
the manifold by hand. Ensure that the fitting is screwed fully home.

2) Check that the union joint has an 'O' ring fitted and screw the union joint onto the other end of the
manifold. Ensure that the fitting is screwed fully home.

3) Locate the manifold onto the manifold fixing brackets. Manifold fixing brackets are positioned at either
end of the container bank. They are bolted to the retention bar and fix the manifold at the end cap or union
joint. The 560mm pipe is screwed into the union joint, please see diagram below. The orifice plate is then
screwed onto the 560mm pipe. If the container bank has more than two rows of containers then there will
be a second row of manifolds and free standing posts will be required. A high pressure tee and elbow will
be required for the assembly. Consult the approved working drawing for the specific layout.

Note: 65mm pipe clamps should be used for 50mm unions and 100mm pipe clamps for 80mm unions

A > 0mm A + B = 5mm B > 0mm

Checking the correct installation of HF fitting.

4.4 INSTALLING DISTRIBUTION PIPE AND DISTRIBUTION VALVES


ALTERNATIVE A - NON VdS APPROVED SYSTEM
1) If the system has distribution valves then a two way, three way (or combination of both) distribution valve
manifold may be used. These are connected to the manifold with a union joint, please see the diagram
above. To reduce the height of the distribution valves a down pipe may be used. This is fitted between the
manifold and the distribution valve manifold and reduces the height of the distribution valves by 1392mm.

2) Use a 'pair of distribution pipes' (302.402.576) to fit either side of the distribution valve. Connect the 2"
ISO left hand thread into the distribution valve manifold using a union joint. The other end of this pipe
has a 2"NPT end. Screw this into the distribution valve. The other pipe has 2" NPT at one end and 2" ISO
right hand at the other. Screw the 2" NPT into the distribution valve and the 2"ISO into the orifice plate.
There will be one pair of distribution valve pipes for each distribution valve.

4.5 INSTALLING THE PRESSURE REDUCING UNITS


ALTERNATIVE A - NON VdS APPROVED SYSTEM

1) Check against the drawing that the correct sized orifice has been supplied.
2) Observe the following procedure to ensure correct assembly of the pressure reducing unit:
3) Ensure that the orifice plate, circlip and O ring are properly installed into the unit. Screw the unit onto
one of the pair of distribution pipes. This will be the 2" ISO right hand thread. Do not overtighten. The
system pipework can now be installed from this point.

4.6 INSTALLING DISTRIBUTION PIPE AND DISTRIBUTION VALVES


ALTERNATIVE B - VdS APPROVED SYSTEM

Connection and all pipework up-stream of selector valves is classified as high pressure piping and HF fittings must be
used as specified in Data Sheet 5-433-04.
Fabrication of high pressure piping and components on site is not allowed.
For assembly of fittings and pipes see the diagram below. Installation should preferably follow the direction of gas flow.
Special attention should be paid to the following:

Two sizes of elbow are available, DN50 and DN80. Both of them have left and right hand threads.
Pipe is stocked in 560mm lengths in DN50 and DN80 sizes.
Special pipe can be supplied in lengths from 170mm.
From reducing or increasing diameters for 50mm to 80mm, a 80 x 50 x 80 Tee must be used, with one
outlet capped if necessary.
The distribution pipe below the selector valve must be supported at the first and last union joints and
also between every two selector valves. Standard support brackets are available. See exploded view on
page 25 of this manual.
All connection pipe between the main manifold and the selector valve distribution pipe must be
supported so as to avaoid any instability, especially at changes of direction. This could happen because
of the easily rotable o-ring seals. Pipe clamps and brackets should be used. Supports shall be fitted to
the union joints and not directly to the pipework or tees.

Note: 65mm pipe clamps should be used for 50mm unions and 100mm pipe clamps for 80mm unions

A > 0mm A + B = 5mm B > 0mm

4.7 DISTRIBUTION VALVES AND PRESSURE REDUCING UNITS


Note: The connection pieces seal well when hand tightened with a friction wrench. Do not overtighten. All
o-rings should be smeared with grease, we recomend Molykote paste G-n.

1) The distribution valves valves are fitted to the distribution pipe between flanges. The lower flange is fitted
to the outlet of the tee on the distribution pipe via a greased o-ring joint. The correct position of the bolt
holes is shown in the diagrams below.

Incorrect Flange Allignment Correct Flange Allignment

2) Insert the appropriate o-ring into the groove in the top of the flange.
3) Before each flange is placed on the flange, temporary means should be used to support the weight of the
pneumatic drive.
4) The next o-ring is now fitted, together with the orifice plate (with the correctly drilled orifice for the zone
in question)
5) The upper flange is now placed on top of the orifice plate, with another greased o-ring.
6) The two flanges are now bolted together and tightened to the appropriate torque.
7) The low pressure system piping can now be screwed to the upper flange and fixed.
8) The temporary support may now be removed and the next valve installed.
9) Once all the valves are in place, the lock off unit for each valve is installed by clamping it to the piping
above the selector valve. It is connected to the pneumatic drive of the selector valve.
Since all the components in a 300 bar system from the manifold to the distribution valves are fully pressure tested and
the HF series of fittings is approved by VdS, it is not necessary to carry out pressure tests on site. To check correct
assembly, a leakage test should be carried out at 2 bar using INERGEN. See stage 1 of instruction 5-037-03 for details.
This test report must be recorded in a written report and signed by the responsible supervisor.
Warning: Water should not be used to test the pipework since it would penetrate into the small
cavities of the o-ring seal units and be difficult to remove.

4.8 INSTALLING THE CONTAINERS

1) When the containers are in the general vicinity of the container bank, unscrew the transport cap, screw
on the container retention ring, and screw the transport cap back on. The threads on the container
retention ring must be fully engaged by the threads on the container to ensure that upon fixing the
container will be securely fastened.
2) Secure the first container to the retention bar with the fixing links provided. Bring the next container into
position. Ensure that the retention ring is at the same height as the first container, and secure this
container to the previous container and retention bar. Continue with the installation of all containers in
the bank in a similar manner.

4.9 PIPEWORK INSTALLATION

1) Install all pipework from the pressure reducing unit to the nozzles in accordance with the approved
installation drawing.
All nozzles are to be strictly positioned in accordance with these drawings and are to be adequate-
ly fixed to prevent movement resulting from the reaction to the discharge.
2) If a requirement at the time of installation, carry out a purge of the pipework using CO2, nitrogen or air.
Ensure that all personnel are outside the protected area or any other area that could be affected by a
discharge. If a purge of the pipework is not required or possible at this stage, ensure this is reported to the
Extinguishing Systems Design Engineer or Installation Manager so that arrangements can be made for
this to be done at the commissioning stage.

4.10 COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION

1) Remove the plugs from the manifold as required and replace with manifold check valves. Ritelok TL 43
nutlock must be used on the threads to ensure a proper seal. Check valves should be tightened to a torque
of 50lbs/ft.
2) Remove brass recoil cap from INERGEN gas outlet and fit pressure reducer DRE-V/S and the discharge
hoses between outlet and the manifold. Ensure that all the o-rings are fitted the between the container
valve and non-return valves.
3) Install the actuation line using a combination of actuation hoses, branch tees and elbows.
For the purpose of this manual the checking of the actuation lines are shown in the
commissioning section, but the checks may be carried out during installation (if so, the
commissioning section should be consulted at this stage).

4) All threads on the actuation lines are to be torqued as follows:


Threads with O-ring seals: 10Nm
Metal to metal seals: 40Nm
These torques must not be exceeded.
5) Fit the container pressure indicators to the valves. These are fitted hand tight and should give a pressure
reading when correctly fitted.
6) Use soap solution to check that the seal is tight. If necessary, use a spanner to tighten the connection by
up to one quarter of a turn and then test again.
Do not over-tighten as this could damage the O-ring.
7) Fit all door caution and manual control point plates.
8) Visually check installation for completion in accordance with the approved installation drawing.

5. COMMISSIONING INFORMATION
This section provides guidance on the commissioning of INERGEN Fire Fighting Systems and is in the form of a check
list to be completed by the person carrying out the commissioning. The commissioning schedule (Document
14A-08-C1, an example of which is shown on pages 100 to 108) is intended to cover the majority of the equipment or
configurations likely to be encountered, however, where appropriate it may be necessary to carry out additional checks
to those listed.
All sections must be completed, or if not applicable, write N/A in the appropriate space.
It is essential that persons carrying out commissioning of INERGEN systems are experienced in the commissioning of
this type of equipment.
Container pressures adjusted for temperature are to be checked for compliance using Table 35, Page 100.
Pages 101 to 108 are an example of the schedule to be completed by the responsible person. The schedule is to be
completed during the commissioning of all new systems and those that have been modified.

5.1 CHECKING THE PNEUMATIC ACTUATION LINES


1) The actuation lines on the INERGEN container arrangement must be configured using the components
detailed in section 3.21.5 of this manual and as detailed in the installation section (Section 4) and as such
a pressure test is not required.
2) Any other sections of actuation tubing ie, actuation tubing from pilot cylinders to distribution valves are
to be tested by carrying out a functional test on these lines by discharging a charged pilot cylinder to con-
firm satisfactory operation of the distribution valves and any associated devices.
During this operation (to prevent accidental operation of the INERGEN containers) the
pneumatic actuators are to be removed from the containers. No loss of actuation pressure should
occur during this process and the actuation lines should then be safely vented by manual
operation of the bleed valve.
3) Following completion of these tests the distribution valves will need to be manually closed and all
actuators reset prior to refitting to the containers.

5.2 CHECKING OPERATION OF SOLENOID, PNEUMATIC AND


LOCAL MANUAL ACTUATORS
1) Read Sections 3.60 to 3.10 before proceeding.
2) Prior to carrying out any tests on any actuator, ensure that they are disconnected from the INERGEN
container.
3) Check that the resetting tool is available for tests on the solenoid actuator.
4) Electrical, manual or pneumatic operation of the above devices is confirmed by the movement of the
central pin.
5) After testing and before fitting to the container valve ensure the central pin is in the fully retracted
position. The solenoid resetting tool is required to reset the solenoid after each operation. (See also
Section 3.8

Upon completion of commissioning of the system, confirm in writing, any defects or actions arising, to the responsible
person within the company or the clients representative as applicable.
A copy of the completed commissioning schedule and any correspondence arising from defects or outstanding actions
must be retained in the project file.
As soon as reasonably practicable after commissioning, ensure a User Manual and As Installed drawings are sent to
the clients representative and such transmission is recorded/confirmed in writing. Confirm in writing the clients
responsibilities in respect to over pressurisation venting.
