Evaluasi Kinerja Jalur Perpipaan Sistem Pemadam Kebakaran dengan Media Pemadam Api Jenis Gas Clean Agent Halocarbon HCFC Blend A pada Ruang Mesin Kapal
Abstract – The engine room is one of the most critical compartment that have significant level of risk. There are so many equipment, device, and environment considered have potential caused of fire. Those of the potential component could rise probability of fire.Therefore safety operation on engine room should become as a main aspect for the engine room operation. Considered on environment issue, fire suppression medium Halocarbon HCFC Blend A (AF11E) would become as prospective fire suppression medium on the future. Application of the HCFC medium has been applied to extinguish fire on industrial control panel room (factory, plant). Other applications is on traffic control room in the airport. The application of the medium is not common on ship engine room. This research discusses the performance evaluation of fire suppression system piping using the fire suppression medium Halocarbon HCFC Blend A in the ship engine room. The pipe sizes used are 4-inch discharge pipe, 3-inch main pipe, 2-inch separator pipe, and 1-inch branch pipe. The number of outlet nozzles used was 49, the required extinguishing agent supply amount was 1126.916 kg for 70 kg bottle contents, and 15 extinguishing agent cylinders were required.
