TUNGUS Advantages

  • Multipurpose

TUNGUS powder-based modules are capable of extinguishing the following classes of fires: Class A (solids), Class B (liquids & gases), Class C (electrical) and Class K (cooking oils & fats).

  • Stand-alone units - no connections required

Modules in outdoor open areas or in enclosed indoor spaces do not require any conduits, plumbing, electrical connections or batteries and are completely stand-alone.

  • Wide range of operating temperatures

Modules feature a wide thermal range, operating in temperatures from -60°C up to +125°C. As such, the system can be installed in extreme hot or cold outdoor temperature conditions, without affecting performance.

  • 12 years maintenance free

Tungus fire extinguishing modules provide reliable, unsupervised, fully automatic protection under a wide range of conditions, maintenance-free for 12 years according to manufacturer specifications, (although regular visual inspections should be undertaken).

  • Efficiency & reliability

Their unique design, high-pressure discharge patterns, and fire extinguishing compound minimize or even eliminate potential blind spots during extinguishment of fires in areas with challenging geometric layouts. Modules extinguish fires at an early stage of fire origin without any external power source in stand-alone and self-triggering modes. A single TUNGUS module is capable of extinguishing fires in areas of up to 860 ft²; in structures with a volume of up to 8,830 ft³; from a vertical/horizontal distance of up to 105 ft. (Coverage area/capacity varies with size of module.)

  • Fast-acting

Modules are activated by a self-generated electrical impulse (whether manually or automatically) and the firefighting powder is generally released in seconds. Total time from fire detection to fire extinguishment takes as little as 15 seconds

  • Highly effective design

Achieved by implementing space industry research and development in the design and manufacturing of all TUNGUS modules.

  • Cost effective

Modules are reusable and can be easily reloaded by authorized, trained facilities, using the original reloading kits supplied by the manufacturer. Overall lower cost is achieved through unique and simple construction designs that, as stated above, do not require any conduits, plumbing or electrical connections. Significant additional savings are achieved because of quick and easy installation and low maintenance, testing and inspection requirements, especially in comparison to conventional pressurized extinguishing systems.

  • Safety

The absence of pressure inside the module casing during installation, operation and monitoring assures greater safety. The discharge powder “ISTO-1” is eco-friendly and, unlike conventional water sprinkler systems or most pressurized systems, creates little or no damage to surrounding objects, structures, inventory, building air quality, and environment. Powder clean-up following discharge generally involves simple vacuuming and mop-up, without the requirement for clean-up and disposal being conducted by certified or specialized parties.

  • Wide field of application

Offers various fire protection options for a variety of objects, areas and machinery in all climate zones and in harsh environments.
