This mechanical counterweight system provides a simple, easy to install, low cost and low maintenance method of constant monitoring for fire suppression cylinders.

Each cylinder is suspended beneath a counterweight system. When the cylinder is fully charged, the arm of the counterweight will hang horizontal. As the agent is discharged, the weight reduces and the counterweight arm will fall, indicating a leak.

The falling arm allows for very quick visual indication of any leaking cylinder. The system itself can also be fitted with a variety of remote alarms, including actuators, infrared or mechanical trip mechanisms. This allows for more sophisticated monitoring methods to provide instant alerts in the event of discharge, including integrating a variety of local visual or audible alarms, warning people that potentially dangerous levels of CO2 might be present near the cylinders.

Alarms are typically triggered when the agent mass decreases by 5% or more however, it is possible to adapt the system for each customer requirement.

Whilst mainly used on 45KG / 100lbs CO2 cylinders, the system can be used on any tank up to about 250KG weight. The system is incredibly flexible and can be easily adapted for any application depending on the cylinder, weight, agent or communication requirements of the customer.
