Fire Suppression Systems for Heavy Machinery and Vehicles
Most systems that would qualify as heavy machinery are expensive, which means that purchasing this equipment was likely a notable investment for your company. Nearly all forms of vehicle equipment that are used within industrial, manufacturing, and mining applications are highly flammable.
The high likelihood of a fire developing within this machinery is caused by internal components that move quickly as well as the use of flammable substances like gas and oil. You can keep your equipment in good condition and suppress fires before they cause damage by selecting an automatic fire suppression system.
When a fire develops, the fire suppression system that you've installed will automatically sense the fire and suppress it rapidly. This results in the flames being put out before they are able to spread. Because of the immediate move to suppress fires, the fire suppression system you select should be among the more effective pieces of technology for keeping your heavy machinery safe and for protecting your investment.
As for non-gaseous pre-engineered fire suppression systems, these systems are designed to be used on certain vehicles, which include off-road and on-road vehicles used in the forestry, mass transit, and waste management industries. If it's believed that there's a substantial risk for a fire on a specific vehicle, these fire suppression systems can be installed. There are several risk factors that should be taken into account, which include:
- Occupant risk - If the vehicle's size, operation, or layout places the occupant at risk, a fire suppression system could prove useful.
- Vehicle risk - Because of how expensive part repairs can be for certain vehicles, having the right fire suppression system installed could be a wise investment. With this system installed, you're able to mitigate the risk of lower productivity in the event that the vehicle is damaged.
- Additional risk factors - Without a fire suppression system in place, other individuals, infrastructure, or vehicles in the nearby vicinity could be damaged.
How Automatic Fire Suppression Systems Work
Before you purchase a fire suppression system, you should know that there are many different types of fire suppression systems, which include everything from mist and water sprinklers to dry chemical, foam and gaseous fire suppression systems. In order for a system to be classified as an automatic fire suppression system, it must:
- React immediately to the development of a fire without requiring human intervention
- Contain a suppression agent cylinder
- Contain a detection element, which is usually a smoke detector or pneumatic tubing
The majority of these systems consist of a manual release or pressure switch as well, which delivers enhanced fire protection. If the system you choose is outfitted with a pressure switch, your heavy machinery can be shut down instantly once a fire has been detected. As for the manual release, this form of technology allows a human to activate the fire suppression system in the event that the system doesn't automatically activate itself.
While fire suppression systems are ideal for putting out fires across many different applications, they are especially useful at protecting large vehicles and heavy machinery. Keep in mind that these systems can begin to suppress fires before they are even detected by humans.
Importance of Protecting Your Heavy Machinery with a Suppression System
As touched upon previously, each piece of heavy machinery makes for a sizable investment, which is why it's important that you do what you can to protect the machinery and your investment. Installing a fire suppression system will also protect the individuals who work with the machinery on a daily basis. Automatic fire suppression systems can be used with numerous heavy machinery applications, which extend to spacious communication centers and large construction vehicles.
