AFEX would like to thank International Mining magazine for including our fire suppression system in the safety section of their October 2015 issue. The mention focuses on the fact that our systems are rugged and easily serviced. Also included was the fact that our Dual Agent systems provide the most efficient coverage available on the market. They are the best approach to protecting modern equipment, which have hotter-running engines, as they have both fast flame knockdown and a cooling effect to reduce engine surface temperatures.
AFEX will be in Booth 041 along with our distribution partner Resisa. On display will be a demonstration model of a dual agent system, showcasing the rugged and robust components which have made AFEX the leading manufacturer of fire suppression systems throughout the Americas.

The magazine itself is a global, technical publication which is written for miners by miners. The article may be read in it's entirety here.
AFEX Fire Suppression Systems thanks WorldCoal.com for featuring our Control Unit in their Product News section recently.
