Firetrace News

Firetrace have completed many installations over the years around the UK however recently an installation took place at their premises in Ipswich on a Whirlpool Pro Tumble Dryer.

The engineer of the tumble dryer, Phil Nicholls from Thompson Rentals was present for the installation and was ‘happy’ with the Firetrace engineers work.

He stated “I am happy with the professionalism and quick confident working ethic of the Firetrace engineers. Their enthusiasm whilst also completing my product training was very detailed and specific allowing me to feel comfortable to install other Firetrace systems or resolve and problems if they occurred.”

Operating independently to the machine, Firetrace's dedicated tumble dryer system is fully automatic and designed to inert the machine including the drum with the use of CO2. The Firetrace System specifically designed for laundry dryers, involve installing detection tubing across the exhaust duct and above the drum an extinguishant. If a fire is detected the Firetrace detection tubing will rupture operating a pneumatic valve which will deploy the Carbon Dioxide into the machine. Because of this, it is important that the machine is in a ventilated area so that the gas can disperse safely.
