The Angus Fire Turbex LNG is the most effective protection for such specialised and severe cryogenic risks as LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) and LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gases).
Any foam generators designed for standard industrial applications will not have the performance requirements necessary to meet these risks, so Angus Fire have developed a special LNG Fixed Turbex System to meet this extremely demanding application.
Engineered to the highest standards for exceptional reliability and minimal maintenance, the Angus Fire Turbex LNG FT1- 500P/LNG and FT2-500P/LNG Fixed Turbex Systems have many special features.
The body, foam making net and fan all benefit from a special boiler grade of stainless steel designed to withstand continuous high temperatures without a reduction in material strength or risk of intergranular corrosion. The complex structure of the foam making net is specially supported to avoid distortion and the tubular support frame has holes drilled to prevent moisture build-up and relieve air expansion when heated. Special glass rope lagging insulates the water turbine and three lifting lugs are provided to assist with site installation.
Rugged construction and careful choice of materials provides exceptional corrosion resistance against highly saline, humid and high temperature environments.
The high efficiency design of the Angus LNG Fixed Turbex System has enabled these units to exceed the severe requirements of the National Fire Protection Association NFPA 11A Fire Exposure Test. Performance is unaffected even after exposure to temperatures up to 1000°C during the 5 minute preburn period of this test.
