The paper describes the mode of operation of the various types of detectors currently available for protecting machinery spaces and the methods of testing their performance. Facilities required in control panels are mentioned including fault monitoring of the panels and the detectors. The design approach for the complete installation is explained together with the location and selection of detectors for particular areas. Commissioning of the system at the fitting out stage and during sea trials is discussed.
