These systems protect the following people operated ammunition assembly machines people operated explosive material handling systems remotely controlled machines that load explosives into ammunition components. The systems installed at Joilet have electronic timers, fast acting pneumatic valves and back-up electronic circuitry to control the length of the deluge water flow.
