We’re delighted to announce that FEV, a renowned UK manufacturer specialising in high-quality fire suppression systems for the motorsport industry, will be front and centre at the upcoming Professional MotorSport World Expo 2023. This premier event is scheduled for November 8 & 9, 2023, at Köln Messe in Cologne, Germany.
Since our establishment in 1990, FEV has been dedicated to driving advancements in fire suppression technology within the motorsport sector. Our unwavering commitment to innovation and safety has been the driving force behind our development program from day one.
Once our meticulously crafted fire suppression systems leave our UK factory, they find their way to a diverse range of customers across the globe. Our clientele includes some of the industry’s largest OEMs, Formula One teams, WRC teams, clubman drivers, and even avid car enthusiasts who want to safeguard their prized possessions.
From the outset, FEV has consistently led the charge in fire safety technology. We proudly hold the distinction of being the first company to develop a Halon alternative gas fire suppression system. This groundbreaking achievement not only resulted in significant weight reductions—over 3.0kg—for Formula One teams but also introduced carbon fibre technology. Our collaboration with teams allowed us to create uniquely shaped extinguishers, leading to superior packaging design.
At FEV, we place the highest priority on customer service and support. Our dedicated team is passionate about working closely with our customers to meet their specific product requirements. In the fast-paced world of motorsport, we take pride in our ability to deliver products and services with remarkable speed.
Our products are the preferred choice for major motorsport manufacturers and teams worldwide, spanning the spectrum from Formula One to clubman drivers. Our FIA homologated plumbed-in extinguishers meet the stringent requirements set by FIA and Motorsport UK.
Innovations in Design and Technology:
Years of intensive research and development, coupled with valuable input from our customers and close collaboration with governing bodies, top-tier teams, and technology providers, have empowered us to continually enhance our product range. Our latest range of fire suppression systems incorporates cutting-edge technology, enabling us to offer some of the most competitive safety systems available in the market.
Among our innovations:
Remote Charge Technology: This pioneering technology, introduced by FEV several years ago, is integrated into some of our gas plumbed-in extinguisher systems. It allows us to use smaller cylinders by eliminating the need for propellant space inside the bottle. A separate capsule filled with Co² and a detonator is attached to the pressure inlet. When activated, the remote charge rapidly pressurises the system, expelling the extinguishant consistently and effectively suppressing fires.
PTDV Technology: FEV’s Pressure Transfer Discharge Valve, patented in 2005, provides us with a unique competitive edge. Combined with our remote charge technology, it offers the most effective fire suppression discharge. The innovative lightweight flange design, featuring inlet and outlet ports, allows the extinguishant to exit the cylinder at a significantly faster rate. Importantly, it incorporates a fail-safe solution, ensuring reliability in critical situations.
FEV’s presence at the Professional MotorSport World Expo 2023 promises to be an exhilarating opportunity for attendees to explore our latest innovations and engage with our dedicated team. We invite fellow motorsport enthusiasts, teams, manufacturers, and industry professionals to visit our booth at the expo and discover the future of fire suppression and safety technology in motorsport. Don’t miss this chance to experience our commitment to excellence and our significant contributions to advancing safety in motorsport. See you at Köln Messe, Cologne, Germany, on November 8 & 9, 2023!
