On the newest British aircraft carrier emergency fire system worked

40
The aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth, included on December 7 as part of the British Navy, will not leave Portsmouth for scheduled two-month running trials, possibly due to an unexpected response of the fire extinguishing system, reports TASS message of the newspaper Evening Standard.




According to the newspaper, referring to a naval source, "the incident occurred on Sunday, and experts are trying to figure out the cause of the sprinklers." According to the information, "the flow of water into the aircraft carrier was insignificant and the consequences of the incident were quickly eliminated."

At the end of last year, the ship, which became the flagship of the royal fleet, found a leak in the seal of one of the mechanisms.

A shaft seal problem was identified during the Queen Elizabeth marine test. Its removal is scheduled while parked in Portsmouth,
then told the representative of the Navy, who assured that this damage will not make changes to the test schedule.



The aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth first entered the sea 26 June 2017 of the year. Its displacement reaches 65000 t, the length of the ship is 282,9 m, the width is 75 m and the draft is 9,9 m. The construction of the ship took more than 8 years and cost £ 3,1 billion ($ 4,1 billion).

    So what? It worked, then everything is in order! Soon they will write that the captain sneezed, and this will mean that the aircraft carrier is worthless?

        It is better to let it work non-standardly than not to work properly.

          Well, this is how to say, if you recall the events of 2008 of the year ...
          8 November in 20: 30 in the Far East time an accident occurred on a nuclear submarine of the Pacific Fleet.
          During factory trials in the Sea of ​​Japan, an automatic fire extinguishing system did not work on board a submarine. In the submarine compartments were 208 people, 127 of them - civilian specialists. The accident affected two submarine nasal compartments. As a result of the release of freon, which is used in the fire extinguishing system, three soldiers and 17 civilians were killed. 21 man was hospitalized with poisoning, reports Lenta.ru

        Not fatal for people .. But salt water for appliances and electrical appliances ... not ICE! However, anything happens in the Navy. They will figure it out and punish those who are caught. bully

          By any means, most automatic systems are very unhealthy

      It is in this way that the Western media act in relation to us and do not give a damn about objectivity. Only the creation of a negative field around everything that relates to Russia.
      From myself I’ll add, what a horror, sad even normal sprinklers cannot deliver! negative

        Judging by the photo - the system in the hangar is not a sprinkler, but a deluge. The sprinkler works like a water lock in a wet pipeline system. The deluge system is dry, a fire signal starts the fire pump and water blows through each deluge (spray) - which we see in the photo. Either some woodpecker pushed someone else’s button, or a false alarm occurred.

        Expensive siberalt, in our hospital in the winter the same problem arises - patients smoke in toilets and halls, and there the same alarm system. Almost every day, and sometimes 2 times a day, howling begins. Then there is a wise guy that somehow cunningly disconnects the wires and the sensor turns off. But the fire inspector is cunning and when the code sees that an alarm has not been received by the O1 console for several days, it comes and fines. And there is nothing to be done, because the patient cannot be kicked out - at once the howl will rise and it will not work to be fined either, since he has no money. Here is the staff and pays for idiots with cigarettes.

      It worked and it’s good. However, the desire of this vessel to choke onboard water (this is the second wet incident) is alarming. Yes, and excessive nervousness with depresnyak all superstitious servants on board are provided ...

      There are different fire extinguishing systems. And they are used simultaneously on the same ship, but in its different departments. There is a very good, acting instantly and super reliable. But certainly reliably killing all who are there, who did not take protective actions. (Not from a fire, but from a fire extinguishing system). This is a gas system that fills the volume of a room affected by a fire with gas that does not support combustion, for example, freon. Do not use water, foam, powder in a room with an electrician. But to extinguish gas is the very thing.
      So, before you get excited, you need to study the materiel a bit.

      Another question is which circuit worked. In general, the emergency response of emergency systems is no less than a system failure. Damage to equipment, casualties among crew and civilian personnel can occur.
      In principle, I wanted to spit on them, even if they’re sinking at the pier, but I don’t see the grudge about this point. Any complex technique can fail, especially at the stage of testing and refinement.

        Greetings! The sprinkler head itself can still work, there are thousands of them on the aircraft carrier. Yes, in principle, this is an ordinary matter, they simply made a sensation out of an ordinary case.

      It happens the other way around. The machine gun worked, filed Freon (gas fire extinguishing system) into the room and killed hundreds of those present there who did not wear insulating gas masks. The machine did not work. But sooner or later (on the ship, quickly), people will manually put out the fire. Maybe from such a failure of the automaton the losses will be incomparably smaller.

    Still, a beautiful bowl. For the F-35, that’s it. Even an ugly springboard does not spoil the overall impression. A good looming AUG. The Queen, Daringi, Type-26, and a couple of Astyudas below. They would still stick AWACS there ... and the Falklands forever them. Given the economy of Argentina.

    It is written that the sprinkler system worked. This is a pipe under constant water pressure, a lockable flask into which special fluid is pumped. If the flask is heated, then it will burst and water will pour. Pure mechanics. The most common reason for false triggering is that they hooked the flask over something (smashed).

    Well, it worked and worked ... Shoals are for everyone.
    But now they called it a trough ... in the name of an old hag who had already become a sort of rarity ..
    And in Britain there are no worthy personalities anymore?
    Well, this ship will be the same rarity ... The old people always creak, leak, break. They are naughty - like small children ...
