MINING EQUIPMENT
“A fire outbreak can catch you offguard when least expected. Your Mining Equipments are highly vulnerable to a fire outbreak.”

CAUSES OF FIRE

  • Virtually all the mobile equipment used in mining operations contains large quantities of highly flammable diesel fuel, lubricating oils, and hydraulic fluids
  • The energized electrical equipment used in mining
    operations also presents an elevated fire risk

CAUSING

  • Business downtime
  • Production loss
  • Revenue loss
  • Infrastructure loss
  • Loss of human life

IF, A FIRE IS IGNITED, THEN :

  • Results in expensive repairs and unscheduled downtime
  • Unchecked and uncontrolled equipment fire can pose a serious
    threat of death or injury

CHALLENGES

  • Most mining equipment is operated around the clock under punishing conditions that stress mechanical and electrical components to the limit
  • Material or fluids coming in contact with hot exhaust or engine parts or an electrical fault can quickly erupt into a fast-spreading fire

WEFIRE™ Solution

  • WEFIRE™ system works to protect the critical assets from within. Hence the system is versatile and not bulky & requires very less gas compared to traditional systems
  • The WEFIRE™ Heat Detection tube upon detection, ruptures at the hottest point forming a nozzle like opening. This activates the cylinder valves and the clean agent gas/ Powder discharges through the
    opening directly onto the fire
  • Tube discharge system is ideal for areas such as control panels, however
  • Nozzle discharge system is recommended for areas needing wider and targeted protection such as Diesel tanks and Hydraulics
