MONARCH systems offer breakthrough technology in the industry’s most flexible and effective fire suppression system. The fire extinguishing agent is dry chemical which, pound for pound, suppresses more fire than any other agent.

MONARCH Industrial Systems have been tested and approved in accordance with UL and applicable NFPA standards. Pyro-Chem authorized distributors have been extensively trained in system designs, installation and maintenance.

Industrial and Automotive Commercial Environment Fire Hazards

Industrial and automotive commercial environments can develop a truckload of potential fire hazards. Hazardous material storage areas and commercial paint spray booths today involve highly flammable liquids, creating an environment in which fire is always a threat. Fumes can build up, chemicals can leak or spill. Add an ignition source and it becomes a potentially devastating combination. If fire occurs, systems must be shut off and alarms and other electrical devices must be activated. The MONARCH Pre-Engineered Dry Chemical System can protect a diverse range of hazard areas and perform all the necessary auxiliary functions.

Cost-Effective Fire Protection Components

The MONARCH System delivers a surplus of cost effective fire protection components

  • Automatic detection and actuation controls provide 24-hour protection.
  • Dedicated manual actuation system allows immediate actuation at the first sign of fire and provides backup to the automatic detection system.
  • The most effective fire-extinguishing agent in the industry, dry chemical suppresses more fire than any other agent.
  • Pressurized D.O.T. rated steel tanks ready for release in the event of a fire.
  • Pressure gauge on the agent tank allows visual inspection of system status.
  • Fully assembled and 100% tested mechanical control head provides reliable operation of the input and output functions.
  • Flexible piping configurations allow for a streamlined design that will not interfere with space limitations.
  • Critical elements of the system such as the control head, cylinder valve assembly and gas shut-off valve are fully assembled and 100% inspected by Pyro-Chem.
  • Protective nozzle caps help prevent contamination and blockage by paint or other commercial byproducts that can inhibit the proper discharge of extinguishing agent.
  • The MONARCH system is available in a variety of sizes economically suited to fit specific needs, designed with the flexibility to accommodate changes to assembly line layout or work area expansion.
