October 2019 Environmental Spotlight
Prism™ Thermal Suppression
Our October spotlight story focuses on the Prism™ Thermal Suppression System.
This system helps protect the Prism weld fume and cutting extraction system in the
case of a thermal event with a simple extinguishing method. The Prism system is UL
listed and FM approved.
The thermal suppression system is available in our 4-16 bank Prism configurations. It
fixes the volume in the filter bank by closing the dampers as soon as the smoke
detector is activated or detection tubing is ruptured. Once this occurs, the system
releases the agent into the discharge piping, where it can fill the entire bank in around
10 seconds or less. The Prism system includes a strobe light that will signal in the
event of a system discharge. Having these safety systems set in place allows
customers to keep their employees safe, save money, and save valuable time.
If you have any questions about the Prism Thermal Suppression System, please contact me.
