Kidde Offers Free Brochure On Marine Fire Protection

Walter Kidde, Division of Kidde Inc.," 375 Main Street, Belleville N.J., is offering a free four-page brochure on the company's marine fire protection equipment for vessels, facilities, and other marine applications.

Decorated with a blazing circle of flame as a reminder of the staggering financial and ecological losses a single marine fire can cause, the publication is illustrated with color photos of various types of vessels and fire protection systems. The text states that through the years Kidde's fire protection experts have met the challenge of total marine fire protection by designing systems to protect thousands of merchant ships, tankers, icebreakers, aircraft carriers, LNG tankers, containerships, roll-on/roll-offs, etc., utilizing a variety of extinguishants and the most advanced fire protection technology available.

The different Kidde Marine fire protection systems are discussed, such as Halon 1301, classified as "least toxic" and considered the safest gaseous extinguishing agent, providing greater personnel safety; Dry Chemical, which when used by itself or in conjunction with foam can provide ideal fire protection on any vessel where flammable liquids present a potential fire hazard; LOEX ™ foam which is an excellent extinguishing agent against fuel fires that develop on tanker decks, fuel pumping facilities, off-shore platforms and other marine facilities; HI-EX® foam system, which is particularly effective in extinguishing fires in inaccessible areas of marine vessels; and Kidde's automatic carbon dioxide systems for the protection of contained areas such as machinery spaces, engine and boiler rooms, etc.

The company's smoke detection systems are also discussed, as well as Kidde's total marine capability to custom-design the ideal system to meet every marine fire protection need, and the domestic and international network of qualified experienced distributors to install and service these systems.
