Statistics show that more than 50% of all fires in mines can be attributed to fires in mobile machines. This has been a rising trend over the years. Mining operations are extremely sensitive to unscheduled downtime as every minute of the operation is crucial.
An engine fire in a mobile machine operating above or underground can have devastating consequences in the form of production reductions, injury and possible loss of life. Due to the typically large quantities of diesel and hydraulic oil, often operating under high pressures in immediate areas, an ignited engine fire could lead to rapid and disastrous series of events. If not detected early and sufficiently suppressed, will lead to a total asset loss.
The FOGMAKER system quickly detects and suppresses a fire by generating a dense blanket of water droplets within the protected area.
