Whilst Lithium-Ion batteries offer many advantages over other energy storage technologies,
they can present challenging fire risks when things go wrong - and traditional fire suppression
methods are not effective when a condition known as Thermal Runaway occurs within the Lithium-Ion cells;
when this happens, the resulting fire can be extremely intense and it can often take several hours,
or even days to fully extinguish such fires - potentially resulting in a complete loss of the facility.
The LPG Lithium-Ion Risk Prevention System is designed to prevent fires in Lithium-Ion battery cells,
by anticipating and inhibiting the conditions that lead to Thermal Runaway.
One of the early warning signs of Thermal Runaway is the production of off-gases and if detected early enough
the system can allow actions to be taken that may prevent a catastrophic event.
When combined with our
FIRECLASS detection and
SAPPHIRE Fire Suppression Systems,
the LPG Lithium-Ion Risk Prevention System monitors the battery cells and detect these off-gases
in order to provide an early warning detection.
