Electrical shorts, particularly in larger mining vehicles such as shovels and drag-lines, can also touch off fires. Often these fires start in parts of the vehicle where the operator can’t see smoke and flames until it’s too late.
As an authorized distributor of Amerex and Ansul vehicle fire protection systems, we can match your needs with the system that best suits them. The right system will warn the operator and suppress the fire (in its earliest stages), protecting both equipment and employees. As a result, damage is limited and equipment down time is held to a minimum. Protect lives and reduce your insurance costs with the proper vehicle fire protection systems.
Amerex Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems
Whether it is a loader operator or your children riding in their school bus, Amerex Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems are designed to protect human life by quickly and efficiently suppressing a fire before it can reach the operator or passenger areas.
Ansul Systems for Non-Road Mobile Equipment
Today, “mega class” equipment such as large excavators, shovels, draglines, haul trucks, wheeled loaders, and other specialized equipment presents a formidable fire protection challenge. This equipment contains hundreds of feet of highly pressurized hydraulic lines with hundreds of gallons of hydraulic fluid creating a substantial source of fuel. With size in mind, Ansul system engineers and agent chemists jointly developed a new generation of fire suppression systems.
Ansul LVS Liquid Agent Fire Suppression System
The LVS Liquid Agent Fire Suppression System is designed in combination with an A-101 dry chemical system, for use on large, off-road type construction and mining equipment (such as large excavators/shovels, draglines, haul trucks, wheeled loaders), and specialty vehicles (such as slag, pot and/or slab carriers, tunnel boring machines, and forestry vehicles). These types of heavy equipment have large volumes of oils and hydraulic fluids under pressure, putting them at greater risk of fire.
