Borg Warner Turbo and Emissions Systems is a world leader in the provision and development of Turbo Charging systems for combustion engines. The company is constantly working on new technologies to further improve the effectiveness of their systems.
Tecserv UK was approached to develop an Automatic Fire Detection and Fixed Fire Extinguishing system to this facility to comply with their insurance and operational requirements.
The brief was to develop a reliable and effective system for this challenging environment whilst minimising down time and unwanted alarms. The Test Cells under normal operation provide many of the detectable effects of fire, with the potential for smoke, heat and flame to be present. They are also classified as hazardous, requiring both flameproof and intrinsically safe equipment.
In addition to the Fire Detection System there was also a requirement for a Flammable Gas Detection system to detect any leakage of fuel that would also initiate a safe shut down of the facility.
Increasingly, CCTV and voice alarm systems are playing an important role in the safe management of buildings and measures to combat acts of violence and terrorism and these works have helped to ensure people, property and processes are protected.
The Test Cells have been in continuous operation and the design of the systems together with the ongoing support Tecserv has proved to be successful. The systems are resilient to the environment and providing reliable operation with negligible unwanted alarms, exceeding all of the customer’s requirements.
Please note Tecserv UK only operate within the United Kingdom – any work outside of this region cannot be considered.
