Industrial gas turbines, which are used in the oil and gas industry, for example, drive generators for power generation or compressors (mechanical drives) for gas compression or gas liquefaction. The operating temperature inside turbine acoustic enclosures can reach up to 120°C and the surface temperature of the turbine itself up to 800 °C. Oils leaking from the leaks in oil pipelines can easily get ignited on these hot surfaces. Once lit, a fire can quickly spread to other areas due to the high air flow rate actually used for cooling. Long downtimes and higher costs are often the result. TurbineProtect combines state-of-the-art fire detection technology as well as fire alarm and extinguishing system control with effective, approved fire protection technologies. Thanks to its flexible design, TurbineProtect can be individually adapted to customer requirements and offers reliable protection.

TurbineProtect combines industrial fire detectors and fire detection systems and suppression control with various fire protection technologies such as: CO2 High and low-pressure fire extinguishing systems, Oxeo inert gas fire extinguishing systems (with argon or nitrogen), Minifog ProCon XP high-pressure water mist suppression systems. This enables a reliable integrated fire protection solution that can be individually customised to the requirements on site. Other solutions according to customer requirements are also possible.
The Inveron risk management system summarizes information in visual form from various systems on one interface. Responsible people can thus, especially in the case of extensive and complex production or building structures, quickly view all relevant data of fire alarm and extinguishing systems as well as other hazard detection systems at a glance. Inveron enables the operator to make the right decisions in stressful situations and ensures complete documentation of all safety-related events.
Preferably, carbon dioxide fire extinguishing systems or Oxeo inert-gas extinguishing systems with the inert gases nitrogen and argon are used. These ensure quick, residue-free fire extinguishing, even in areas that are difficult to access. For large turbines, low-pressure CO2 extinguishing systems can be beneficial as the entire quantity of extinguishing agent is stored in one container which means comparatively smaller area is required for storing a large quantity of extinguishing agent.
Alternatively, Minifog ProCon XP high-pressure water mist extinguishing systems offer reliable protection. As compared to conventional water spray systems, Minifog ProCon XP system manages to extinguish a fire with approximately 95% less extinguishing water. This extremely low use of extinguishing water reduces the risk of water damage and thermal warping of hot machine parts to a minimum.
Pre-assembled container solutions allow extinguishing systems of any size and almost anywhere to be quickly and easily upgraded or expanded. These individual extinguishing system solutions are manufactured and assembled according to standardized processes, delivered and commissioned on site. The commissioning costs remain within a manageable range due to the high degree of preassembled parts. This saves time and therefore money.
