Fire suppression system
Ground Support Equipment
Fire protection for machines at airports can make a big difference for saving both lives and property.
Choking and cooling time at least double compared to other certified systems* which prevents reignition.
World-wide service network and training program available.
Always active – no power supply needed for activation or system monitoring
*SP4912 method test result
Prevent risks, service disruptions, downtime, and delays
Ground support equipment (GSE) can serve as potential high-risk elements at an airport. Engine fires put human life, property, and machinery at risk. Fires can also create major service disruptions, effect downtime, and cause delays.
Invest IN the safety of people and property
A Fogmaker fire suppression system is an investment in the safety of people and property. High-pressure water mist is a superior suppression technology in engine compartments, and strongly limits the consequences of a fire in GSE machines such as pushback tractors, GPU, luggage trucks, carriers, freight loaders, passenger buses and supply trucks. The system works for both regular engines and electric vehicles.
The double piston accumulators is the base of the Fogmaker system and should have a working pressure of 100-105 bar at 20 degrees C.
The detector bottle is the base for the detection system and the pressurized detection tube. This bottle is checked with every annual inspection to ensure correct pressure and functionality.
The distribution system consists of distribution hoses, pipes, fittings, and spray nozzles. The system distributes the suppression liquid from the piston accumulator out into the fire-protected area.
Fire and fault alarm signals – a constant alarm signal equals fire! An alarm signal every 60 seconds equals a fault alarm, it could be a sign of a broken cable, faulty pressure switch/signal module, leakage/low pressure etc.
Manual actuator (optional) – by mounting an actuator on the detection line the Fogmaker system may deploy by hand –manually.
How it works
An Outstanding system that always is active
High-pressure water mist has an outstanding choking and cooling effect. The system is always active – no power supply is needed for activation or system monitoring. Also, Fogmaker has a longer emptying time than many competing systems, which is critical to prevent reignition and downtime. This also buys valuable time for evacuation. With decades of experience and a wide international network, we offer you a reliable and robust system with a low TCO.
Retrofit existing machinery
Many airports choose to retrofit existing machinery. We have long experience in risk analysis and installations on tow trucks, de-icers, buses and GPU:s.
