Advanced Fire System Handles the Pressure at Elfab
Elfab, a global manufacturer of pressure relief products, has selected a high performance fire system from Advanced for installation at its corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility.
Elfab designs and manufactures rupture discs, explosion vents and detection systems for use in a wide range of applications and industries including oil and gas, chemical & pharmaceutical, as well as for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) in industries such as aerospace, medical, cryogenics and automotive.
Elfab specified an Advanced MxPro 5 2 loop multiprotocol fire panel and over 130 Apollo Discovery devices to protect its facility. The MxPro 5 range is the leading multiprotocol choice, offering world-beating quality, reliability and flexibility.
The system was the first MxPro installation by RayFire Services. Owner Ray Hope, described it as: “By far and away the easiest panel to install and configure I have ever worked with.”
David Mellody, manufacturing engineer at Elfab commented: “Providing protection for people, plant, processes and the environment across the globe is our business so it was key to select an industry leading fire panel to protect our own facility and employees.
“Advanced has an outstanding reputation for quality, performance and ease of use and also for providing excellent ongoing support to customers. The MxPro system is backwards compatible, easily expanded and upgraded which matches Elfab’s fire protection needs both now and in the future.”
Neil Parkin, Advanced’s sales manager for the North said: “MxPro 5 is Advanced’s highest performance multiprotocol fire panel and leads the UK market whether standalone or networked. Already the fire panel of choice for a number of sites in the UK including Tyne and Wear Metro, Durham Cathedral, the Scottish Galleries and The Shard, MxPro 5 delivers more features than other fire panels providing both power and technology for buildings of all sizes. We’re delighted Elfab chose it for its world-class facilities.”
