FIRE TOWERS AND FIREFIGHTING MONITORS. REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS
Fire towers with fire monitors are used in water extinguishing and spraying installations. According to GOST R 12.3.047-2012, the firefighting monitors are designed for outdoor installations for the protection of vertical vessels up to 30 m high at oil refineries, gas refineries, petrochemical, chemical enterprises, for the protection of apparatuses and equipment with circulation of gas, flammable and combustible liquids.
The designs of the filling racks for handling LHG, flammable and combustible liquids and pressure vessels are protected with stationary water cooling installations. Fire towers with firefighting monitors are located along the entire length of the railway racks for spraying of each tank-car with at least two compact jets. Firefighting monitors are also deployed at raw material, commodity and intermediate warehouses to protect spheres and horizontal tanks with LHG, flammable and combustible liquids under pressure. Installation of firefighting monitors on towers is advisable if spraying along the entire height is required (in the case of protection of tanks with LHG and HIL under pressure) or spraying of each point of the tank with at least one compact jet (clause M.4 of GOST R 12.3.047- 2012).
The types of firefighting monitors shall comply with GOST R 51115-97. Stationary water spraying systems can be equipped with both remote control nozzles and hand-operated universal monitors.
Fire extinguishing of industrial and production facilities involves using modern means of protection of fire departments personnel. In particular, a firefighting monitor operator’s workspace is in proximity to a burning object. To protect an operator from heat flows, water curtains and water heat-protective screens can be installed on the tower.
As an additional safety measure (“above the norm”), firefighting monitor systems can also be installed at other industrial facilities which store and handle Flammable and combustible liquids. This simplifies the work of fire services and reduces the risk of the facility destruction in case of fire.
QUALITY CONTROL AT THE POZHNEFTEHIM TEST STANDS
A hydraulic test stand is part of the Pozhneftehim-Detal production unit. It enables the development of new equipment modifications and the quality control of products for fire extinguishing systems. The Pozhneftehim annually arranges demonstration tests of equipment at the Advanced training courses. In 2019, for the first time, the audience witnessed the operation of the Fire monitor complex with the water heat-protective screen and the fire monitor for continuous and sprayed water jets.

PRODUCTION OF FIREFIGHTING EQUIPMENT
We invite the customers to visit Pozhneftehim production of the firefighting equipment
Pozhneftehim production is unique in its own way. Here you can see the operation of the equipment for fire extinguishing systems and water curtains. For testing we use our own foam concentrates and the generators form foam of low, medium and high expansion ratio. Here you will see the operation of the proportioning systems for storing and dosing foam concentrates, pumping station, etc.
Pozhneftehim specialists will tell you about the peculiarities of our production, the technological processes, demonstrate the main elements of the quality control system. It helps to understand the importance of creating conditions for reliable protection of objects, especially of hazardous industrial enterprises.
