COMBATING HIGH RISK FIRES TO SAFEGUARD OPERATIONS

Agricultural machines, such as combines and pickers, can experience debris buildup from ground material such as straw and crop residue. This debris can easily ignite when it encounters the heat from the engine and exhaust components. Not only can a fire destroy a machine, but it can also spread to the surrounding crops. While a rigorous machine maintenance and cleaning policy will go a long way to reduce fire risks, a purpose-built fire suppression system will reduce damage to the agriculture machine if a fire does occur.
