Fire Protection for the Marine Industry

Gielle Marine Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression System
Designed in according to SOLAS Ch.II-2, Reg.5 and IMO MSC/Circ. 847, 5.

The Gielle Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression System is an engineered system available in three application configurations: total flooding (for unoccupied areas), local application or hand-hose line. 

System includes detectors, a control unit, agent storage cylinders, piping and discharge nozzles. Gaseous carbon dioxide rapidly suppresses fire by a combination of cooling and oxygen displacement. Discharge duration and agent flow rates are customized for the individual application. 

Seafaring vessels by their nature are at greater risk of suffering the devastating consequences of a fire-related catastrophe.

The absence of emergency services, limited escape options and presence of flammable liquids while at sea make proper fire protection an absolute necessity.

Many shipboard fires begin in unoccupied cargo holds or machinery spaces. Gielle offers the marine carbon dioxide suppression system to contain such a fire before it can spread to threaten the crew, passengers, assets or the vessel itself.

How the System Works. 
The Gielle Marine Carbon Dioxide System utilizes highly sophisticated electric and/or pneumatic detection units which sense fire at its inception—immediately alerting the control system. The Control Panel activates the Control Head which initiates the release of Carbon Dioxide from the cylinders. 

The suppressant is delivered through a fixed piping network to multi-jet nozzles, which discharge the Carbon Dioxide directly onto the hazard—providing rapid, automatic fire protection around the clock.

Marine Approvals. 
The Gielle Marine Carbon Dioxide System is approved for use in marine applications such as machinery spaces and flammable liquid storage areas by major regulatory agencies.

System design, installation, service
Gielle provide the services (design and installation, retrofit, recharge, and maintenance) necessary to keep your Gielle system functioning properly and in compliance with Marine fire protection regulations.

Why Choose a Gielle carbon dioxide suppression system?
Superior Suppression. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a colorless, odorless, electrically-nonconductive gas whose density is approximately 50% greater than air. A Gielle carbon dioxide system suppresses fire by providing a blanket of heavy gas that reduces the oxygen content of the atmosphere to a point where combustion becomes impossible.

Damage-Free. A naturally-occurring atmospheric element, Carbon Dioxide dissipates into the air allowing an almost immediate return to “business as usual” without the interruption of a costly clean-up and the expense of damage to assets from suppressant residue. This results in fewer repair costs and reduced downtime.

Design Versatility. Because Carbon Dioxide is an ideal suppressant for a wide variety of industrial marine applications, Gielle offers three system configurations to efficiently protect different hazard types: 

Total Flooding—ideal for enclosed hazard areas, Local Application—used to protect a specified hazard area in an open floor plan, 

Local Hose Line—cost effective protection for small amounts of a Class B hazard.

Typical Applications
The Gielle carbon dioxide system is ideal for environments where flammable liquids and vapors present a potential hazard. These fires spread quickly and become so intense, they often cannot be approached. For this reason, it is essential to have sufficient fire protection on site.
• Engine Rooms
• Pump Rooms
• Lamp Rooms
• Cargo Holds
• Ductwork Electrical Rooms
• Diesel Generator Rooms
• Machinery Spaces
• Engine Scavenge Spaces
• Bow Thruster Compartments

A Gielle carbon dioxide system designed specifically for the hazard and operated automatically, assures immediate detection and rapid suppression.

Vessels Protected
The Gielle carbon dioxide system can be specified to provide economical fire protection for the unoccupied areas of :
• dredge vessels
• fishing vessels
• roro vessels
• cargo vessels
• tugboats
• yachts
• in-land vessels
• passenger vessels
• research vessels
• chemical vessels
• multi-purpose vessels
