The Original Prusa Enclosure can have as an add-on a Self-contained tube-style BlazeCut Fire Suppression System. The system operates automatically and independently of any power supply by reacting to high temperatures.
Our 3D printers are known to be extremely reliable and safe. We’re adding this system mainly due to the requirements of certain institutions (schools, hackerspaces, etc.) where there is a frequent requirement to have a fire suppression system.
The BlazeCut T Series does not require any special maintenance. It is recommended to visually inspect the system every one to three months. During the movement of the tube, bubbles of gas in the extinguishing agent will be visible. This indicates that the extinguishing agent is in the tube and the BlazeCut T Series is functional.
It is recommended to inspect the pressure of the tube when the equipment is at operating temperature. Due to the physical and chemical properties of the agent, pressure in the tube can vary depending on the ambient temperature. The higher the ambient temperature, the higher pressure in the tube and vice versa.
The system will need to be replaced in the following cases:
The extinguishing agent does not leave a residue. Ventilate the protected enclosure properly, do not enter the area before ventilation. Remove the used system from the protected enclosure. The same procedure should be followed after the release of the extinguishing agent for other reasons (system damage etc.).
In case of fire, the system activates automatically burning the tube without previous warning. In case of fire, do not come into direct proximity to the system, there is a risk of being affected by the extinguishing agent.
In case of activation of the system do not enter the protected enclosure and do not open the covers of the protected enclosure, wait for the total release of the extinguishing agent.
The discharged system consists of recyclable materials. Please dispose of this product responsibly and recycle it where possible. Dispose of the discharged system according to local waste management regulations.
For proper recycling, return charged systems to your local BlazeCut agent.
In case of direct contact with the extinguishing agent, follow the instructions below.
In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical attention.
Move the person to fresh air and keep them at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If the person is not breathing or if breathing is irregular or breathing has stopped, administer artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. Loosen tight clothing such as collar, tie, waistband, and belt. Do not administer adrenaline and its derivatives. Seek medical attention immediately.
Flush/irrigate the affected area with a large amount of water. Do not use hot water. Remove contaminated clothing affected by the extinguishing agent. If you experience frostbite, seek medical attention.
Carefully flush/irrigate with water for several minutes. If possible, remove contact lenses, if they are inserted. Continue flushing. Seek medical attention.
