Dual guard housing system with cooling air increases pump seal longevity while preventing fires from spreading
Dedicated system for each pump
Combines 3 layers of protection:
• Forced air cooling of seal to prevent failure and improve life
• Preventative monitoring of key failure indicators to predict failure before it happens, and
• Active auxiliary fire suppression using a foam agent to extinguish a seal fire should it occur
Fail-safe operation using mechanical fire detection – no reliance on power
Several configuration options- customizable for your operation’s specific requirements and layout
Primary advantages over conventional methods:
Preventative instrumentation to detect early signs of failing equipment- allowing you to stop a fire before it even starts
Suppressant foam is much more localized, leading to more effective suppression and easier cleanup than conventional systems
Individual foam canisters do not degrade over time like the pressurized bladders common in full-room foam systems
Wech Tech’s PumpGuard+ includes all of the features of the base PumpGuard package PLUS dual-zone fire suppression to both the mechanical seal AND the pump volute housing, providing total protection of the entire pump area.
