Bulk storage

Due to the mercantilism of the Dutch and the economical interesting location of the Netherlands a lot of oversees material is brought in and stored there. A good example of such a product is cocoa beans. These are being stored in very large bulk storage locations in one of the Dutch harbour areas.

These warehouses are extremely high and dusty buildings where the cocoa dust forms a very sticky substance. Because of this sticky nature every installation in these areas, including the fire detection system, will pollute very rapidly. When Stratos aspirating systems are combined with optional automatic purge systems, that fully automatic clean the interior of the piping system, blockings in the pipes will be prevented. This makes that the service interval and the life of the fire detection system will be extended dramatically.
