VDAS LOP System (Low Pressure AFFF)
The Firestorm VDAS LOP systems are typically installed on mobile and transportable equipment to protect personnel and equipment from the dangers and damages that can result from a fire. They are designed to suppress fires quickly and to reduce the likelihood of re-ignition.
The VDAS LOP System is a pre-engineered fire suppression system which discharges a predetermined quantity of extinguishing agent through a network of strategically arranged fixed nozzles.
The loss of pressure method is used to actuate the VDAS LOP system. When the fire suppression system is put into service, the system is pressurized to a working pressure of 1,350 kPa (refer to the LOP Design and Installation Manual for more details). The force from this pressure keeps the LOP valve closed. Fire suppression systems are primarily intended to suppress fires by eliminating the supply of oxygen, Category A fuel sources, Category B flammable substances, and isolating ignition sources.
Designs and installations reference AS5062, MDG15, AS4587 and best practice.
