Generator Room Solution
In order to achieve the right room temperature when using generators indoors, ventilation must be taken into account. Heat from the engine radiator, alternator, and exhaust system must be released to the atmosphere. The ventilation system in the generator room must be able to meet a two-hour fire rating.
The selection of a suppression system for a generator room is primarily influenced by four factors: ventilation of the space for cooling and combustion air, storage and delivery of flammable/combustible liquids, storage of Class A combustibles in the room, and equipment tolerance to non-fire damage resulting from suppression system operation.
In the past, a variety of system types, such as sprinklers, AFFF foam sprinklers, carbon dioxide, clean agents, and water mist, have been chosen.
The primary method of protection for both interior generator rooms and outdoor generator enclosures in recent years has been water mist. Systematic water mist is FM approved to protect generators and have successfully passed fire tests. They solve issues with ventilation and the impossibility of sealing off generator rooms. Most of the time, they can put out pool fires.
