The OmniPass adapter from Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions is first to receive listing for safe operation in extreme marine conditions.
The product has been listed by independent safety science firm Underwriters Laboratories (UL) as a filter adapter for use in saltwater environments.
The adapter is specifically designed to protect deluge nozzles from debris or other seawater by-products that could result in a blockage, and is unique in receiving the highly-valued listing. UL’s rigorous testing regime found the OmniPass adapter capable of maintaining nozzle performance even when subjected to extreme cases of pipe debris.
Deluge systems provide an essential first line of defence in offshore fire suppression, helping to contain fires and reduce the likelihood of explosions and obstructed exits. Due to the operating environment of offshore rigs, however, these systems are directly exposed to sea water by-products such as corrosion, debris and marine growth which often result in nozzle blockages. A single blocked nozzle can pose extensive hazard risk for an offshore rig.
With the oil and gas industry facing increased scrutiny and an ageing infrastructure, the OmniPass adapter is a logical and cost-effective solution that will help to reduce blockages and ensure deluge systems function as intended.
