Whether pushing coal in a yard, mining underground or processing at a power plant, equipment fires are a threat. Not only is coal dust highly flammable, but stockpiles produce extreme heat that can cause both safety and capital risks. Fire suppression systems are purpose built to operate in the most rugged environments, detecting fire as soon as it happens and minimizing damage. AFEX systems have reliably protected LHDs, loaders, dozers, drills and underground trucks at coal operations.
The impacts of a vehicle fire at a coal yard or mining location can be devastating. Some of these risks include:

For decades, we’ve been trusted to supply heavy duty equipment fire suppression systems at many of the largest mines in North and South America.
As equipment manufacturers design machines that are more powerful and productive, the risk of more severe fires due to increased heat throughout the engine compartment and hydraulic systems grows. A dual agent fire suppression system combines the benefits of dry chemical with liquid agent to address these risks.Learn more
