Safeguarding Mobile Mining Equipment from Fire Threats
AFEX has been outfitting mobile heavy equipment with fire suppression systems for over 50 years. A supplier to many of the largest mines across the globe, AFEX understands the financial impact of a single, downed piece of machinery on mining operations. As a result, their fire suppression systems are built ruggedly to withstand everyday abuse and discharge reliably, saving valuable seconds crucial to limiting damage to machines.
The team is eager to be face-to-face with end users, OEMs and distributors at the MINExpo event this year. The mining industry has continued to grow exponentially despite the COVID-19 crisis, and we’ve navigated supply chain disruptions effectively to be in a position to provide fire suppression systems with short lead times.Rod Cavallaro, President at AFEX
AFEX’s booth at MINExpo will feature their signature red tanks and a comprehensive video outlining the company’s success safeguarding mining equipment across all seven continents.
