Our Fire Protection Products

We PHENIX FIRE PROTECTION SYSTEMS Provide the following systems on Turnkey basis (Consultancy, Design, Detailed Engineering, supply Installation, Testing & Commissioning) as per NFPA, latest Fire Service Code and NFPA standards.

Hydrant System Accessories

Our range of Fire Hydrants Systems are standard fire detection system that can easily sense fire in the initial stage and can control it by automatically dialing the fire brigade station or other related authority and inform. To control the fire an optional automatic Carbon Di-Oxide discharger can also help. Fire Hydrant System is one of the most effective fire alarming systems.

The whole pipeline is kept under uninterrupted pressure with water. Whenever the hydrant valve is open, the pressure in the pipeline reduces drastically and jockey pump set which normally keeps the total system pressurized is unable to cope with the system demand which results in further fall in pressure. The further fall in pressure is perceived by the designated pressure switch and the main fire pump set starts automatically. Relying upon the type and sensitivity of the risk, diesel-engine powered fire pump set should also be installed having standby capacity of 100%. Some of the system components of fire.

It is a semi-automatic fire extinguishing system. A network of pipes is laid out counting upon the risk with hydrant valves placed at strategic places. The spacing or the distance between yard hydrants is guided by norms viz.

The entire range of ISI marked Hydrant Accessories - Landing Valves, Couplings, Branch Pipes, Special Nozzles, Fire Hoses, Monitors, Hose Boxes, Hose Reel Drums etc.

Fire Hydrant Wet Riser System

Were risers are a form of internal hydrant for the fireman to use and are always pressurized with water. Wet risers are only required for buildings where the topmost floor is higher than 30.5 meters above the fire appliance access level.

Wet riser system comprises duty fire pump with standby pump discharging into a 150mm diameter riser pipe with landing valves at each floor and to which canvas hose with nozzles cab be connected to direct the water jet at the fire. A jockey pump is usually provided to maintain system pressure. For high rise buildings, each stage of the wet riser should not exceed 70.15 meters.

Automatic Sprinkler System

Although automatic sprinkler installations have been commercially available since 1882 and have since been installed in a steadily increasing range of industrial and commercial premises, is true to say that many facets of sprinkler protection are little understood. It may be worthwhile, therefore, to descri 0.+*-be briefly the basis principles involved. Sprinklers fixed on pipe work charged with water spaced at regular intervals installed throughout the protected building and are connected to a reliable water supply. When a fire occurs, only the sprinklers in the immediate vicinity of the fire automatically operate the discharged water to control the fire. Sprinklers are not so sensitive that they operate at a stage when prompt manual first aid operations still have a chance of success.

These factors limit the damage to very low proportions. The operation of any one sprinkler causes an alarm to sound to bring help to the scene so that the water may be shut off as soon as the fire has been extinguished. The value of the automatic sprinkler system in the eyes of Fire Insurance Companies whose estimate is based on actual calculations, is shown by the high annual rebates on fire insurance premium which are allowed to the owners of sprinklered premises. The rebates vary according to the risk and it is not possible to lay down any hard and fast rules. For approved installations conforming with the standards laid down by the Tariff Advisory Committee of India, the saving is seldom less than about 40% of the premium normally charged for the insurance of a corresponding risk without sprinklers.

Medium Velocity Water Spray System

Medium Velocity Water Spray Nozzles has an external deflector, which discharges water in a directional cone shaped pattern of small droplet size. The water is uniformly distributed over the surface to be protected. The nozzle is used in deluge water spray system for special hazard fire protection application. As the design and intent of specific water spray system may vary considerably, a MV nozzle is made available in several combination of orifice sizes and spray angles.

The minimum desirable pressure to achieve a reasonable spray pattern is 1.4 Kg./Sq.cm. The water distribution pattern as shown in the graph in following pages is at an average pressure of 2.0 Kg/Sq.cm. The change in pressure between 1.4 to 3.5 Kg./sq.cm. does not affect considerable change in spray angle. The spray pattern shown is with indoor application. System designer must consider wind velocity while designing the system for outdoor application. Field obstruction if any affecting the spray pattern of the nozzle must also be considered. The nozzle may be oriented to any position which is deemed necessary to cover the hazard.

Some of the areas where this system is widely used are:

  1. Horizontal storage vessels (like LPG Bullets, NH3 storage tanks etc.)
  2. Vertical storage vessels (like benzene, xylene, toluene tank age etc.)
  3. Spherical storage vessels (like LPG bullets, spheres etc.)
  4. Spot protection (Protection of selective areas/ equipments)


Use Teflon tape or soft thread sealant on male thread of the nozzle. The nozzles must be hand tightened into the fitting. LIFECO make wrench must be used to tighten the nozzle unit into the fitting. Excessive tightening torque may result into serious damage to nozzle arms and the deflector which may affect spray pattern of the nozzle and it's performance.

It is recommended that water spray system be inspected regularly be authorized technical personnel. The nozzle must be checked for corrosion, external and internal obstruction, blockage if any. The nozzle should be cleaned or replaced if required. The system must be operated with optimum water flow at least twice in a year or as per the provision of NFPA or local authority having jurisdiction.

The owner is solely responsible for maintaining the water spray system and the components therein so that it performs properly in actual operating condition

Automatic Fire Alarm & Smoke Detection System

Fire detection and alarm systems are designed to provide warning of the outbreak of fire and allow appropriate fire fighting action to be taken before the situation gets out of control. As all systems are designed primarily to protect life, property, this places a great responsibility on the designer because each building will present a different set of problems in relation to the risk of fire and fire spread.Each fire detection and alarm system therefore must be specially designed to meet the requirements for each building.

The fire alarm system can either be operated automatically or manually. Automatic operation is via the detectors whereas manual operation is by breaking the glass at the manual call point (break glass unit).

To override the automatic operation of this system in case of its failure during a fire, use the nearest unit of the manual break glass.

Smoke Detectors

Audio Visual Strobes / Alarms are lights combine a single- or quad-flash strobe light with an 87dB piezo alarm. Each unit comes with 3 bolts and rubber spacers for mounting. Wiring is separate for light and alarm
