The DIMES Digital Measurement System from Rotarex Firetec monitors fire suppression cylinder contents 24/7/365. Fire protection systems can fail or perform inadequately if cylinder pressure is low due to a leak or system discharge. System maintenance programs are intermittent and often rely on techniques that are not overlay accurate, such as using pressure gauges or weighing the cylinders to determine fill levels. Now, with DIMES, system operators know at all times the status of the cylinder level and pressure, and are proactively warned if there is a problem.
DIMES uses digital sensors and an integrated microchip to send key parameters to an algorithm that calculates the exact level of the extinguishing agent. Operators can verify cylinder contents at a glance with greater accuracy than delivered by pressure gauges. Now, they only need to take action when the system sends a warning signal.
The DIMES system directly helps reduce operating costs, as interventions are only necessary when an alert is generated. Maintenance is easier and faster, and the need to periodically dismount and weigh cylinders to verify contents is eliminated. Acquisition costs are paid out quickly.
There is a DIMES solution for every extinguishing agent: inert gas, chemical, CO2.
