Combine And Cotton Picker Fires Cause Over $20 Million In Losses In The U.S. Each Year
Agricultural machines have a high risk of fires due to the buildup of debris such as straw and crop residue. Heat from the engine and exhaust components can ignite this debris, resulting in a fire which damages or destroys the machine and can spread to the surrounding crops. A rigorous maintenance and cleaning policy will go a long way to reduce your fire risk, and a purpose-built fire suppression system will help reduce damage to your machine in the event that a fire does occur.
AFEX has dedicated over 45 years of hard work to the research, design, and production of fire suppression systems for heavy equipment. Our systems are rugged, reliable, and effective. They are also easily serviced in the field using common hand tools, reducing the amount of downtime and lost productivity experienced as the result of a fire.
If you’re looking to protect your equipment from fires, an AFEX fire suppression system is your solution. Together we can design a fire suppression system that fits your fire protection needs.
