SANERGRID® ERT® product range allows you to comply with all regulatory and technical requirements regarding retention, fire suppression and oil spill. ERT® tanks are mainly used in the field of electrical transformer oils but they can also apply to any equipment containing non-explosive hydrocarbons.
The range ERT® is designed to prevent hydrocarbons pool fire risk for electrical transformers. Indeed the range is equipped equipped with a patented fire suppressing system of metal baffles across the top which will eliminate traditional systems such as pebble beds which become polluted and are not particularly effective and also take up part of the bund containment volume. The metal baffles are close spaced but will allow liquid through so that oil and rainwater can run into the tank, but in case of a fire the close spacing means that insufficient air penetrates and oxygen depletion occurs causing the fire to suffocate and extinguish.
Moreover this fast suffocation capacity decrease the probability of thermal runaway into the tank, which is very important in hydrocarbons fire, and make this extinguishing system so efficient, natural and simple, by acting simultaneously on 2 of the 3 component of Fire Triangle.
We also provide several optional items such as clamping braces to fix the tank and the transformer beams, silent blocs to reduce vibrations or hydrocarbons fire extinguishing fuses.
