UHS Extinguishing Device

Extinguish sparks with our ultrahigh-speed technology

Technical Specification

In a brief

UHS extinguishing devices have very short reaction times and are therefore suitable for short pipes. Due to a reaction time of less than 0.1 s, extinguishing distances of less than 6.56 ft [2 m] become possible with the ultrahigh-speed technology.


Automatic extinguishing device: type UHS 1 Ex
Operating pressure (flow pressure): 58 to 145 psi [4 to 10 bar]
Volume flow at min. operating pressure: 7.977 gpm [30.2 l/min]
Ambient temperature for operation: 41 °F to 140 °F [+5 °C to +60 °C] (without insulation), -4 °F to 140 °F [-20 °C to +60 °C] (with insulation)
Temperature in material flow: 41 °F to 176 °F [+5 °C to +80 °C]
Storage temperature: 23 °F to 140 °F [-5 °C to +60 °C ]
Temperature of extinguishing medium: 41 °F to 140 °F [+5 °C to +60 °C]
Extinguishing medium: water, Smallest clear width of the extinguishing device: 0.8 mm. If the water is very hard, an additive approved by GreCon can be used to reduce deposits on fittings and pipes.
