Fire Response System

This system continuously monitors the temperature inside the dryer drum, even long after the cycle is complete. If an unexpected increase in temperature occurs it will automatically activate the multi-level Fire Response System to control the fire and preserve the equipment. An external signal, such as the building’s alarm system, can be connected so the dryer provides immediate notification for prompt action.

THREE LEVELS OF PROTECTION

  • LEVEL 1: SENSE

    STANDARD ON ALL O-SERIES DRYERS
    All O-Series dryers come standard with our Level 1 - Sense System. When an unexpected increase in temperature occurs, the system will trigger an alarm on the machine and send a remote signal if it is hooked into an external connection, such as the building’s alarm system. Models with reversing capabilities will tumble in an attempt to smother and control the fire.

  • LEVEL 2: SPRAY

    OPTIONAL UPGRADE WITH WATER HOOKUPS
    When an unexpected increase in temperature occurs on a water equipped model the system will trigger the Level 2 – Spray System. This will trigger the alarm on the machine and the remote signal if it is connected. Meanwhile, the machine will begin to intermittently spray water into the cylinder. The intermittent spraying will provide enough water to reduce the fire while limiting damage to the equipment. Models with reversing capabilities will tumble to help disperse the water throughout the load and attempt to smother the fire.

  • LEVEL 3: DOWSE

    OPTIONAL UPGRADE WITH WATER HOOKUPS
    In the unlikely event that the temperature continues to rise, the Level 3 - Dowse System will be activated in water equipped models. When the emergency temperature is reached the machine will turn the water on fully to completely dowse the load.
