VACTEC_Responsive corrosion inhibiting Vacuum Technology-based fire protection system

Project description

A new fire protection system in a vacuum atmosphere

Automated water sprinklers are currently the most common systems used to contain fires in homes and buildings around the world. With origins going back to Leonardo da Vinci who developed the world’s earliest fire sprinkler system in his kitchen, so much has changed. Vacuum technology is the latest evolution of the sprinkler system. The EU-funded VACTEC project is developing a new system that will be a more reliable, more durable and easier-to-operate system. It will also be dry and provide a natural response to the problems of frost, as well as corrosion. For instance, this new system maintains a vacuum atmosphere within the pipe network and has a double activation sequence to avoid both false activations and flooding.
