Fire & Gas Systems (NFPA, UL, FM, NOM)
The importance of preventing fires and hazardous gas leaks relies on preserving human life and looking after assets. At ECN
Automation we have plenty of experience in fire detection and suppression, as well as hazardous gas detection for different
For the implementation of this kind of projects we evaluate the necessary safety elements through risk assessment to comply
with the norms:
Always valuating the importance of safety in fire & gas projects.
Foam and water suppression system applications.
Toxic gas detection and alarm
A gas detection system implementation is the best way to create a
safe environment for people in the industry, preventing the existence
of toxic gas concentration, explosive gases, and even an
environment where the la of oxygen can be at risk in the work
Explosive gases and fire detection and alarm
Fire & Gas systems in the industry are the key for human and
infrastructure safety; we have the experience to develop projects
under national and international norms, also providing support
in audits performed by regulating entities.
For the implementation of gas systems, our personnel uses
norms NOM-002 and NOM-010 as guideline, besides IEC and/or
ATEX standards applicable to the needed solution, through a risk
assessment engineering therefore being able to prevent, avoid
or control an unwanted condition.

Our staff is certified in NFPA 72 and NOM-002-STPS, experienced
to specify the adequate solution for every area in your plant,
based on fire mitigation and control safety norms.
Fire extinction systems:
Fire Sprinkler System
Fire & Gas Integrated Solutions
Early detection and fire alarm is the first step in avoiding human and material damage; in strict compliance of current
norms the best prevention is possible.
Fire & Gas and integrated project consists of:
Fire extinction methods
Fuel cut off
Installation of automatic fuel cut off valves at the moment of smoke or fire detection in the protected area.
Suffocation (Oxygen displacement)
Clean Agent system installation in office areas (site) or foam systems in fuel tanks.
Inhibition (Chain reaction cut off)
Powder extinguisher installed to be used manually or automatically in the protected area.
Refrigeration (Heat reduction)
Installation of an automatic or semi-automatic system through water based sprinklers or hydrants.
The main principle in which the design of fire protection is based is that, unless otherwise stated, most risks can be
extinguished with extinguishing agents if the application is correct. A quick guideline for firefighting systems is the following
Class A Solid Materials Sólidos
Class B Liquid Fuel
Class C Gas Fuel
Class D Metales
Class E Electric Voltage above 25V
Class K kitchen
Powder for metals
Acceptable*1 for liquid fuels non water soluble
Good*1 do not use with water soluble liquids
Good*2 (for voltage below 1000V)
