Fire protection: essential for in the hydrocarbon industry

Does your company operate in the hydrocarbon industry? Then fire protection is surely an essential component of your safety and health management. Environments with a high fire risk not only need active fire protection such as fire detectors, sprinklers and fire extinguishers, but passive fire protection as well. Avoiding or delaying fires can prevent serious damage to people, equipment and the environment. JetBlack offers unique customized passive fire protection systems that will help your company avoid dangerous fires.

Fire protection: passive vs. active

There is some overlap between the two, but fire protection can roughly be divided into active and passive fire protection. Active fire protection includes the systems and equipment that put out fires. These systems are triggered and ‘activated’ when a fire occurs, such as fire extinguishers, sprinklers and fire detectors. Passive fire protection systems, on the other hand, are permanent built-in means used to contain a fire or slow down the spread of fire. These include coatings, casings, and special fire proofing materials that ensure that a fire cannot reach or escape from flammable equipment. Containing or slowing down a fire this way can buy valuable time to put out a fire and evacuate the premises.

Similarly, other process equipment such as actuators, junction boxes, man-ways, and process vessels will also be well protected and accessible. Because of our custom-made approach, we can incorporate inspection hatches for easy access when in need of inspection or maintenance.

The material used to construct the box are able to withstand extremely high temperatures for 2.5 hours. During exposure to extreme jet fire lead, the panels retain their integrity and ensure, thanks to the high-quality insulation core, for a relatively small and defined temperature increase on the inside. The stainless steel used to construct the box is corrosion-resistant and maintenance free, which makes it ideal for both outdoor and offshore conditions.
