FK‐5‐1‐12 is a colorless, clear liquid. It is stored as a liquid and dispensed into the hazard as an
electrically non‐conductive gaseous vapor that is clear and does not obscure vision. It leaves no residue and has acceptable toxicity for use in occupied spaces at design concentration.
The Impulse Valve Operator Supervisor (IVOS) is used to monitor the presence of the Impulse Valve Operator (IVO).
The Impulse Valve Operator (IVO) provides a means to activate a Fike Impulse Valve container via an electric signal from a Fike control panel.
The Impulse Valve Pneumatic Operator (IVPO) provides a means to pneumatically activate a Fike Impulse valve container utilizing the discharge pressure from a ‘Primary’ Impulse Valve container or Nitrogen Actuator Assembly.
Check Valves are used to prevent agent loss from the open end of a manifold and/or piping system in the event that one or more containers are removed for servicing / maintenance.
The Impulse Valve consists of a fast‐acting rupture disc (Hastelloy C276/316 SST) assembly housed in a brass valve body.
The container mounting straps and brackets are designed to rigidly support the installed suppression container.
The Liquid Level Indicator (LLi) is an optional accessory that can be fitted to Impulse Valve containers equipped with an LLi boss.
The Impulse Valve Operator Supervisor (IVOS) provides the means to secure and electrically supervise the connection of an electric actuator or pneumatic operator to the discharge valve on a Fike Impulse Valve container.
Fike’s clean agent containers are painted steel containers available in various sizes and varying fill densities.
FK‐5‐1‐12 extinguishes a fire by heat absorption. The gaseous mixture created when FK‐5‐1‐12 discharges into air has a much higher heat capacity than air alone.
Instructional signs are used to provide the necessary information to personnel in the area and to comply with NFPA 2001 requirements.
The FK‐5‐1‐12 low pressure switch (LPS) is an optional item that can be added to Impulse Valve containers for the purpose of continuously monitoring the container pressure for a low‐pressure condition.
The pressure gauge is mounted to each FK‐5‐1‐12 container to provide visual indication of the container pressure.
The discharge nozzles are made of brass and are available in a 180° and 360° discharge patterns.
