Liquid chemical fire suppression systems provide exceptional cooling abilities and suppress Class A (debris) and Class B (fuel) mobile equipment fires. The liquid agent, SAFE-X*, cools hot surfaces quickly to minimize fire reignition. Liquid systems are especially designed to protect high risk vehicle components, such as turbochargers, exhaust components, and Tier 4 aftertreatment components.

*SAFE-X is a certified AS 5062:2022 fluorine free agent.

Liquid Chemical Suppression System Fighting Equipment Fires

Watch as the liquid chemical agent forms a film over the fire to remove oxygen, cool high heat components and interrupt the spread of equipment fire.

System Accessories

  • Stainless steel tubing distribution replaces need for costly, timely hose replacements
  • Telematic integration via Control Unit detection panel
  • Engine shutdown package limits intensified fire damage due to hydraulic fluids or fuel
  • Fire sleeves for wires and hoses provide additional heat and flame resistance
  • Horn and strobe for secondary audio/visual indicator of alarm condition
  • Pushbutton for electronically monitored means of manual system activation



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.
