Fortunately, we did not have many incidents like this in the last years and one of the main reasons for that is the mandatory use of fire prevention systems installed on our units.

"I work in a large mining company in Peru as a Team Maintenance Supervisor. I work every day with heavy machinery equipment such as mining trucks, excavators, wheel and crawler tractors. I have always been fortunate that in all the mining projects I have worked on, our equipment had AFEX Fire Suppression Systems installed, giving my team great confidence and peace of mind against the risk of equipment fire. AFEX’s support is very good since they do their inspection work whenever we do some type of corrective or preventive work in the equipment. I congratulate AFEX for the excellent quality of its products and even more for its good support in mining operations throughout the country!"
"The entire AFEX team is great to work with. Beyond the rock-solid and easy to install product, the fast shipping and customer service levels are the best I have seen. Being able to order systems as a single part number, and then get everything needed in one shipment is great!"
