Tyco Fire Protection and Building Products
Tyco's laboratories provided a typical lab scenario setup for a case study of the application of a mobile fire products collector. For the purpose of the study, the fire products collector system design was subdivided into four primary components used for typical laboratory testing requirements: the hood, the duct, the probes and the instrumentation cabinet. The sampling portion of the duct and the mobile cabinet with all of the instrumentation are able to be moved and can be shared between the two different test bays in order to reduce the cost significantly. Through creating a mobile version of the fire products collector, the cost efficiency of the system was improved by approximately 66%.
