EXTINGUISHING FIRES AT TOUGH LANDFILL ENVIRONMENTS
Waste handling equipment operates in a tough environment with unique fire hazards. Hydraulic oil leaks and trash accumulation can ignite quickly, engulfing expensive machines in flames in a matter of minutes. An onboard fire suppression system provides a prompt response to vehicle fire, knocking down engine and trash fires quickly to reduce equipment damage.
The Impacts of Downed Waste Handling Equipment
The waste handling working environment is especially tough on machinery and equipment. Trash compactors, dozers, wheel loaders, excavators and refuse haulers are significant investments that, when out of order, are difficult and expensive to replace. An out of order piece of heavy machinery can threaten to halt or slow operations. While a fire suppression system can’t promise to stop the risk of fire, it can significantly limit the potential for equipment loss, saving you money in the long run.
