Protecting Pickling Lines in a Fire

Immediate Activation of Fire Protection Systems for Pickling Lines of Steel Manufacturing
Every aspect of a manufacturing process has a chance of igniting a fire, with some processes having a higher risk than others. A pickling line, used to descale or clean steel, has a higher chance to start a fire due to the acid tank and the plastic construction of the exhaust ductwork.

Types of Systems
A fire protection system that includes heat detection, flame detection, and suppression systems would be the most comprehensive system for a pickling line. Each pickling line is unique to your manufacturing processes and would require a custom designed fire suppression system. A fire suppressions system is designed to protect both the inside and the outside of the acid tanks.

What a Fire Suppression System Can Do For You
The goal of a fire suppression system is to minimize the fire hazard, potential damage and downtime in case of an emergency. A fast responding system with little water will suppress a fire, but also have limited residue allowing you to get your systems back up and running.
A fire suppression system for a pickling line should include optical flame and heat detection to detect a fire and activate the suppression system. A water mist suppression system is fast responding and uses very little water minimizing containment requirements and the potential water weight in ductwork.
