Potential damage to hard disk drives during discharges of dry extinguishing systems.

When the fire protection industry became aware of potential damage occurring to hard disk drives during discharges of automated dry extinguishing systems, Siemens decided to find an answer to the problem.

After an intensive research phase, Siemens determined that the high noise level generated by conventional extinguishing systems during the discharge process was causing the damage. This conclusion led to the development of a new extinguishing system, named Sinorix™ Silent Extinguishing Technology.

With Sinorix Silent Extinguishing Technology, the extinguishing system operates at the same performance level as a conventional system, but with a significantly lower noise level. This is primarily due to the innovative new Sinorix Silent Nozzle, created to ensure disturbance-free operation of hard disk drives during the extinguishing process.
