Learn Science Behind Fire & Spread a Word to Save Lives in Your Society & Increase Awareness

>> How does a Fire Spread & How can it Get Dangerous ?

There are many factors which lead to fire disasters many times a minimum spark can lead to a big fire which can bring your infrastructure your beloved house in to ashes. But it is equally important to know how does fire spread through rooms of any building until there’s nothing left? How can you possibly identify that the fire that just broke out is going to take an ugly turn? All of these questions are actually pretty vague provided every situation demands different explanations, but all of them route down to the basics- How it spread and how many lives it claimed.

Fire is the visible effect of the process of combustion – a special type of chemical reaction. The fire triangle illustrates the cause of any fire it mainly involves heat, fuel & oxygen.

These three components can turn a simple spark in to flames blowing up everything.

To get control over fire if any of the 3 key components are controlled the triangle breaks and the fire can be stopped.

>> Know the Types of Fire to Stop Them.

Depending on the type of fuel the second component in the heat triangle the type of fire differs. Knowing the type of fire helps us to distinguish it and save it ot spresd and turn into dangerous flames.

  • Class A – fires involving solid materials such as wood, paper or textiles.
  • Class B – fires involving flammable liquids such as petrol, diesel or oils.
  • Class C – fires involving gases.
  • Class D – fires involving metals.
  • Class E – fires involving live electrical apparatus. (Technically ‘Class E’ doesn’t exists however this is used for convenience here)
  • Class F – fires involving cooking oils such as in deep-fat fryers.

>> Which equipment helps you reduce Fire ?

There are various equipment to get control over fire but Fire extinguishers are provided for a ‘first attack’ fire fighting measure, generally undertaken by the occupants of the infrastructure before the fire fighters arrive.

Depending of the type of fire and safety measurements we install various types of fire extinguishers.

  • Class A extinguishers will put out fires in ordinary combustibles such as wood and paper
  • Class B extinguishers are for use on flammable liquids like grease, gasoline and oil
  • Class C extinguishers are suitable for use only on electrically energized fires
  • Class D extinguishers are designed for use on flammable metals

>> Role of Extinguishing Agents Depending on Type of Fire.

Extinguishers are color coded according to the extinguishing agent.

Below we have listed the fire extinguishers according to the extinguishing agent.

 >> Water and Foam

Water extinguishers are for Class A fires only – they should not be used on Class B or C fires. The discharge stream could spread the flammable liquid in a Class B fire or could create a shock hazard on a Class C fire.

>> Carbon Dioxide

Carbon dioxide can be used on Class B & C fires. They are usually ineffective on Class A fires.

>> Dry Chemical

Today’s most widely used type of fire extinguisher is the multipurpose dry chemical that is effective on Class A, B, and C fires. This agent also works by creating a barrier between the oxygen element and the fuel element on Class A fires.

Ordinary dry chemical is for Class B & C fires only. It is important to use the correct extinguisher for the type of fuel! Using the incorrect agent can allow the fire to re-ignite after apparently being extinguished successfully.

>> Wet Chemical

Wet chemical of Class K extinguishers were developed for modern, high efficiency deep fat fryers in commercial cooking operations. Some may also be used on Class A fires in commercial kitchens.

>> Clean Agent

Clean agent extinguishers are effective on Class A, B and C fires. Smaller sized handheld extinguishers are not large enough to obtain a 1A rating and may carry only a Class B and C rating.

>> Dry Powder

However, dry powder extinguishers are for Class D or combustible metal fires, only. They are ineffective on all other classes of fires.

>> Water Mist

Water mist extinguishers are primarily for Class A fires, although they are safe for use on Class C fires as well.

>> Cartridge Operated Dry Chemical

Like the stored pressure dry chemical extinguishers, the multipurpose dry chemical is effective on Class A, B, and C fires. This agent also works by creating a barrier between the oxygen element and the fuel element on Class A fires.

Ordinary dry chemical is for Class B & C fires only. It is important to use the correct extinguisher for the type of fuel! Using the incorrect agent can allow the fire to re-ignite after apparently being extinguished successfully.

>> When a Fire Hose Reel is The Right Solution.

When a fire breaks out, the last thing anyone needs to be is a hero, and staying too long in a burning building puts your life at risk. Remember that, as long as it burns, a fire is probably pumping out smoke you can see and smell, and toxic fumes that you can’t. If it’s not under control in a matter of a couple of minutes, get out, and leave the fire fighting to the experts.

An accessible reel could contain a small fire quickly and minimize damage

We have highly skilled employees who expertise in installing the right safety systems for you to get easy control over a fire disaster. The most important benefit of the hose reels are ,As  hose reels are generally located next to an exit, in an emergency it is possible to reach a safe place simply by following the hose.

The fire hose reels are designed to deliver, as a minimum, 0.33L of water per second. A control nozzle attached to the end of the hose enables the operator to control the direction and flow of water to the fire. All fire hose reels provided by Raj engineering come with a unique ball valve shut-off device, a plastic or solid brass hose reel nozzle and mounting bracket.

Any area where there could be Class A fires, which involve quantities of ‘ordinary’ combustible materials, such as timber, paper, cardboard or fabric, with the combination of people having the right training the fire hose reels are installed. So it is important to have an engineering expert to safeguard your infrastructure with the correct equipment at the correct location.

>> Save Lives By install Automatic Sprinklers.

Based on NFPA guidelines, a business that has a fire sprinkler system installed increases the likelihood that injuries to human lives will be avoided. Commercial fire sprinkler systems installed by us are effective since they typically activate quickly. This allows them to easily and efficiently control the fire. The deadliest part of a fire are the toxic fumes that are produced. The smoke from a fire can quickly spread throughout a large business. Fire sprinkler systems have the ability to reduce how much smoke is produced from a fire.

Uncontrollable fires can spread very rapidly. This accelerated speed of a fire is slowed down by the presence of a fire sprinkler system. Therefore, a properly maintained and installed fire sprinkler system can give people within your business the time necessary to get out in a safe manner. At Raj engineering systems are designed in accordance with either a pre-calculated table where pipe diameters are given or fully calculated where pipework is sized by hydraulic calculation.

>> Why to be Sorry After a Fire Disaster ? Safeguard it Today !

While fire, suppression should be a key element in any commercial fire protection plan, this particular approach to dealing with potential fires provides benefits that other strategies cannot. If you are wondering about the wisdom of making use of fire suppression methods that include the use of inert gas or some similar agent, think about what the right choice will mean to your operation.

We know from experience of so many years in fire prevention systems that choosing the correct fire suppression system for your organization can be a bit of confusing but as well a major concern, from knowing why you need one, to which type of system is required and choosing a reliable and trustworthy prevention system our engineers will provide you a complete fire suppression system in your budget considering all the government standards, because Safety comes first.

Suppression systems use a combination of dry chemicals and/or wet agents to suppress equipment fires. So the fire suppression systems help control fire and prevent from a big fire disasters.

No matter how big or small your infrastructure is make it safe before it’s too late.

The fire suppression systems are installed for every type of building and business .We have enlisted some below:-

  1. Fire Gas System
  2. Kitchen Fire Suppression
  3. Water mist System
  4. Foam Deluge System
  5. Pneumatic Heat detection Tube

>> Announce the Danger Before It’s too Late.

The fire telephone system also involves Public Address System for annunciation in case of a fire or any disaster. Public address systems are an essential tool in communication throughout a premises or campus. It becomes important that whenever there is an emergency situation all the occupants of the infrastructure are made aware of the emergency and saved .

Messages are sent from an operator via a microphone console or telephone handset and are routed through amplifiers before being distributed from speakers in the designated areas.

The public address systems are effective enough and it has been studied surveys that announcing the Danger and making people aware of the disaster helps prevent maximum life.
