MITIGATING FIRE RISKS AT COAL YARD & MINING OPERATIONS
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.

DUAL AGENT FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM
Combining the Benefits of Liquid & Dry Chemical Agents
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.
