Powder Fire Suppression System

Fest Fire Security supplies dry chemical powder – a complete fire fighting agent with its fundamental purpose of smothering a blaze.

Dry Chemical powder fire extinguishing system - are very economical and undoubtedly the most conventional fire extinguishing systems used today. They can safeguard a diverse array of industrial and automotive environments and perform all the necessary auxiliary functions. Dry chemical fire suppression systems can handle all three types of class fires (ABC). Fest Fire fighting powder systems can be customized to accommodate specific risks or hazards. Our Tri class or multi-purpose dry chemical powder are all tested and proven, UL/ULC listed, and complies with NFPA 17, 33 and 34 regulations.

Applications for Dry Chemical Agents

Dry chemical suppresses more fire than any other agent, delivering both rapid suppression and protection against fire re-ignition. Engineered for flexibility and economy, our powder systems may include the Twin-agent systems and the I-101 industrial systems.

Twin-Agent System I-101
  • Twin-agent technology combines the fast flame knockdown of a dry chemical with the fire securing capabilities of aqueous film-forming foam.
  • Two times the fight.
  • Maximum fire-stopping power.
  • Single-person operation.
  • Separate storage tanks filled with Purple-K and AFFF.
  • Nitrogen cylinders to provide pressurization to the tanks and expel the agents.
  • Twin hose lines to deliver the agents from storage tank to the twin nozzle assembly.
  • Nozzle assembly to control and direct the flow of agents to the fire - wither independently or simultaneously.
  • Manual and/or pneumatic actuation devices.
  • Pre-engineering allows customers to build the exact capacity system to protect the hazard area.

I-101 Industrial Fire Suppression System
  • Pre-engineered for industrial hazards like paint spray booths.
  • Flexible and economic.
  • Mechanical or electrical detection.
  • Total flooding or local application methods.
  • Class ABC fire fighting ability.

More About Powder Systems


What Is Fire Fighting Powder

Powder fire suppression systems - when introduced directly to a fire, the dry chemical powder extinguishes the flames almost instantly. The instantaneous extinguishing aftermath of powder is caused by the suffocation and anti-catalytic effect, a chemical intervention into the combustion process. The powder fragments when exposed to the flames, producing free radicals which melts and forms an insulating layer over the inferno. Our extinguishing powders consists of non-poisonous inorganic salts (mono-ammonium phosphate) making them non-toxic.

Area applications


Fest powder systems cater for Class A (Ordinary combustibles), Class B (flammable liquids and gases), and Class C (energized electrical) fire settings in a wide assortment of industrial configurations.

Typical applications include:

  • Petrochemical loading racks
  • Paint spray booths
  • Hazardous materials storage buildings
  • Flammable liquid storage areas
  • Warehouses
  • Offshore platforms
  • Refinery processing equipment
  • Machinery lubricating systems
  • Petrol dumps
  • Compressor and pump stations
  • Hydraulic systems
  • Aircraft hangers
