Measures for Fire Protection in Engine Room of Diesel Generator Set

Aug. 28, 2022

The construction of the engine room of diesel generator sets is also an important aspect to ensure the safety of operation. Especially in summer, the rise of temperature will bring many hidden dangers. At this time, it is essential to take fire protection measures. Here, Starlight has compiled some precautions for you, and I hope you can pay attention to it when designing the computer room.

Daily fuel tanks, anywhere, are fed by gravity or electric pumps. Electric pumps from long-distance large fuel tanks should be equipped with valves that automatically cut off sudden fires. The material inside the fire extinguisher must be foam and can be used directly from the pump or fire box; fire extinguishers should always be located near diesel generator sets and fuel storage depots.

Fires between oil and electricity are dangerous, and there are few types of fire extinguishers available. In this case, we recommend the use of BCF, carbon dioxide or powder desiccant; asbestos blanket is also a useful extinguishing material. Foam rubber can also extinguish oil fires away from electrical equipment. Always keep the oil place clean to prevent oil splashes, we recommend: small granular mineral absorbents can be placed around the site, but fine-grained sand is not used.

However, absorbents like these also absorb moisture, which is dangerous where electricity is present, as do abrasives. They should be kept separate from fire fighting equipment, and workers should be aware that absorbents and abrasives cannot be used on diesel generator sets or combined distribution equipment. Cooling air can flow around the desiccant. Therefore, before starting the diesel generator set, it should be cleaned as much as possible or the desiccant should be removed.

When a fire occurs in the engine room of the diesel generator set, some local regulations stipulate that in the event of a fire in the engine room, it is necessary to remotely stop the operation of the diesel generator set in an emergency to eliminate the circuit leakage in the event of a fire in the engine room.

The above safety and fire protection measures can ensure operational safety and personal safety, and prevent unnecessary losses from accidents. Of course, these details must also be paid attention to when setting up the computer room.
