Fire suppression system for machines operating in mines
It is well-known that the increased demands on reduced emission levels, as TIER 4F and EPA 2013, have led to higher fuel pressures and increased temperatures in the engine compartment. In combination with the time-critical industry demands, the risk for fires to start in the engine compartment has risen dramatically.
Statistics show that nearly 55% of all fires in mines originate in a vehicle fire*. This has been a rising figure over many years. Out of these, hot surfaces is the dominating cause, and also overheating lead to several fires. Together, these two are the cause of more than 50% of all vehicle fires in mines.
