Fire protection system top priority (united kingdom)

We were approached to provide a fire protection solution for a new biomass feedstock barn in the UK as quickly as possible, as operations could not begin until a fire protection system was in place.

Knowsley SK designed, manufactured, delivered and commissioned a Turbinator foam skid to replace the existing bladder tank and balanced pressure proportioner. The Turbinator system was provided in a skid package with one tie in/out flange which minimised changeover time offshore and offered the following advantages over the bladder tank system:

  • Very low maintenance with no expensive testing regimes.
  • Foam System can be topped up easily by non-skilled personnel.
  • Can be tested with training foam or water from an external source.
  • Foam can be accurately proportioned over varying firewater inlet pressures.


Our client was very pleased with the products and services engineered and delivered by Knowsley SK and have since engaged with Knowsley for an additional Turbinator skid to provide protection for tanks and bunds at one of their UK sites. Knowsley continue to support and test the systems with an ongoing annual service contract.
