firetrace-logoFiretrace is a simple and effective “micro-environment suppression system”.

It is comprised of a polymer tubing that will rupture when exposed to a flame. This specialized tubing is leak resistant, flexible, durable and precisely temperature sensitive which allows it to quickly react when the heat from a fire is present. The detection tubing connects to a custom engineered valve and a cylinder that contains the best fire suppression agent for a particular hazard.

Designed for simple installation, often very near the source of a potential fire, Firetrace is a self-activating suppression system that reliably suppresses fires in seconds.

At Fire Chief Equipment, we provide a low maintenance, cost- effective solution to the problem of “micro-environment” fire protection where the hazard is typically contained within a critical enclosure, such as equipment, machines, vehicles, or storage compartments. Firetrace systems can be installed in virtually any enclosed space where high-value assets are located or where an increased risk of fire could be mitigated by an automatic fire suppression system.

Firetrace direct release

Direct Release Systems

The Direct Release System utilizes the Firetrace Detection Tubing as both the fire detection device and the fire suppressant delivery system. The portion of the tube nearest the hottest point of the fire ruptures and forms an effective discharge “nozzle”. The pressure drop in the tube releases the entire contents of the cylinder through this nozzle.

Indirect Release Systems

With the Indirect Release System, the Firetrace Detection Tubing is used only as a detection device. The fire suppression agent is delivered via copper tubing, stainless steel tubing or braided hose. Once the tube “bursts”, the suppressant is discharged through strategically placed nozzles within the protected enclosure.
