VESDA SMOKE DETECTION SYSTEM PDF

Metrics details Abstract The Phillip J. The initial technology was invented and patented by David Packham and Len Gibson, who worked with John Petersen on prototype development, field trials, and applications engineering. Martin Cole was responsible for the successful commercial development and many further patented technical developments. The VESDA technology and its pre-eminent role in the introduction of aspirated smoke detection ASD internationally has led to a major global impact on public safety. The recipients of the Philip J.

When high value assets, equipment or irreplaceable items are at stake, early warning of a smoke or fire problem, is essential.

Our air sampling or air monitoring equipment actively pulls in room air to a special chamber where it can detect the presence of particles that are created in the very early stages of combustion, even before smoke is visible. This provides the valuable time necessary to initiate a flexible, appropriate response. Conventional smoke detectors struggle to activate with high amounts of air passing through their chambers. VESDA smoke detection is far more responsive than conventional smoke detectors.

With ever increasing environmental responsibilities, it is essential that a fire suppression system should deploy unnecessarily.

VESDA smoke detection use in conjunction with conventional smoke detection is a perfect match. Preferably VESDA detection samples the air across the return plenums of the air conditioning systems which provide primary smoke detection! An alert alarm can be raised and human intervention can prevent the gas from discharging! For example, VESDA detection will be better suited to a warehouse with smoke detectors situated at high levels.

Conventional smoke detectors can become faulty and access equipment will need to be deployed, this can be extremely disruptive to operation and it is also dangerous.

Aspirating pipe will replace the smoke detectors at high level, with holes in the aspirating pipe replacing the smoke detectors. Cold temperatures will ice up the optical chambers of conventional smoke detectors rendering the system useless. VESDA detectors are located outside the cold environment, with aspirating pipe work located within the risk or outside the risk with capillary smoke sampling heads located within the risk! The condensation is collected at a condensate water trap and dry air arrives for sampling by the VESDA detector.

Where VERY early detection of smoke is an absolute necessity. The VESDA line of air sampling detectors is the most widely specified, installed, and has a proven track record of reliability. Suppression Systems Inc.

Why VESDA? Leveraging Air Sampling Smoke Detection Within Your Fire Alarm System

VESDA air-sampling smoke detectors are renowned for their ability to consistently deliver protection for a diverse range of global businesses and their challenging environments, providing enhanced life safety and business continuity solutions. With the realisation of the consequences of a fire to critical data within computer server rooms, the need to detect a fire at the earliest stage becoming vitally important. Aspirating Smoke Detection system are becoming more and more an integral part of a Gas Suppression System. A VESDA system continually draws air from an area, through a pipe network, back to a central detector which continually monitors for very small amounts of smoke. Delayed detection means late suppression and more damage.
