Process Fire Protection

Take a holistic and fully integrated approach to safety

  • Handling wood fiber requires a comprehensive approach to sparks/fire detection, suppression, explosion protection, and notification.
  • Cogent offers extensive integrated design expertise to ensure your equipment and fire protection systems work reliably and take automated action when required.

Hazardous Locations

Achieve full compliance with expertise

  • Environments where combustible dust is present require area classification as part of any fire safety system design.
  • Cogent can help you navigate standards – whether in North America or Europe – enabling you to select the correct classifications, specifying requirements, and locating equipment to achieve full compliance within your plant environments.

Fire Alarm Systems

Mitigate risk before the alarm sounds

  • A properly integrated fire system provides full situational awareness at your fingertips during an event.
  • Proper designs must also accommodate local standards and address the correct monitoring, notification, and safe exiting in a timely manner.
  • Cogent can help you do all that and more, assuring that your fire alarm system addresses all applicable standards and personnel safety.

Electrical Safety

Protect your business from the risk of power

  • Cogent helps assure that your industrial electrical systems are designed and installed to safeguard employees from electrical shocks, mitigate fire risks, and minimize risk to personnel.
  • Cogent also provides engineering services to design your electrical system to minimize and manage arc flash risks.

Equipment Safety

Design for safety – from the operator down to the device

  • Cogent helps you meet heightened demands for safe operations.
  • Cogent designs process safety into every project.
  • Cogent integrates safety into every equipment process to decrease the incidence of safety issues, industrial accidents, and safety device failures.

Building & Asset Protection

Take a plant-wide approach to protecting key assets from fire

  • Cogent’s industrial safety design services help you protect high-risk areas such as thermal oil and hydraulic rooms from catastrophic events.
  • Employ plant-wide solutions such as foam systems and effective compartmentalization of building and various monitoring systems.

Safety System Design

Meet industry standards with ease

  • Cogent’s expertise in safety system design helps you meet complex functional safety requirements.
  • Our team will work closely with your stakeholders to ensure compliance to safety standards such as ISO 13849 and IEC 61508.

Emergency Shutdown Systems

Ensure a shutdown won’t keep you down

  • Cogent helps build automated systems that provide orderly shutdowns in the event of process upsets that are beyond operator control.
  • Cogent’s emergency shutdown sstems are designed to reduce the potential risks to equipment and personnel.
  • Ensure process safety, electrical safety, and fire protection.

Cogent considers an integrated strategy in regards to Industrial Safety

Recovery
How quickly can we recover and get back to production
Response
Emergency evacuation and notifying fire brigade
Mitigation
Containment and keeping away from critical assets (e.g. Fire walls & explosion hatches).
Protection
Deployment of automatic fire protection systems such as sprinklers, deluge, and foam systems.
Prevention
Reducing the probability of a fire (by taking away one of three elements I.e. oxygen, fuel, or ignition source).
