Tyco’s OmniPass antiblockage deluge adaptor is a revolutionary safety innovation that will eliminate potential for deluge system blockages within the nozzles.

Exclusive to Tyco the OmniPass antiblockage deluge adaptor is the only device available that has been specifically designed to prevent blockages in fighting nozzles within systems using seawater.

The small discharge orifices within the nozzles are the ‘weak point’ of the system that are most susceptible to blockages caused by one or more of the seawater bi-products. It takes less than 6g of debris to block a typical offshore deluge nozzle and the results can be catastrophic.

The OmniPass antiblockage deluge adaptor ensures that any debris or seawater bi product(s) that has potential to block nozzles is held retained within the pipework, where due to significantly larger cross sectional diameters the effect is greatly reduced. The innovative design minimises the effect to ensure maximum flow is available at the nozzle.

Even when pipes appear to be completely blocked, nozzles with the OmniPass antiblockage deluge adaptor have been proven to deliver significant amounts of water that could be critical in an offshore fire condition.

OmniPass Platform Magazine Feature

Tyco is pleased to introduce to the industry a reliable and easy-to-implement innovation which will eliminate the threat of blocked nozzles allowing fires to take hold. OmniPass is a simple and cost-effective adaptor, which, when fitted between the pipe and nozzle, catches debris and increases the area passing space for water, thus effectively eliminating the chance of a blockage. The adaptors have been installed on a UK North Sea platform for over a year, and 12 monthly tests have shown there have been no blockages on the OmniPass-equipped nozzles, even with the old system and existing debris being present. Tyco is the only company in a position to provide the industry with an effective and achievable solution to this pressing issue. Current systems are not designed for salt water and have never been adapted to meet the challenges of salt water corrosion and marine life. While the system still requires maintenance, Tyco delivers a deluge resilience programme that meets with HSE requirements, which includes a move from annual wet testing to every five years, yearly and annual internal dry inspections to ensure no pipe blockages exist in the pipes. It’s said that only OmniPass can quickly and cheaply transform your deluge system from a dangerous liability into a fully operational life-saving asset. OmniPass gets water to the fire, first time, every time. Click on the link below to view the full OmniPass feature in October’s edition of Platform Magazine.
