Fire protection in mining is essential, as the confined spaces and remote locations have a critical impact on escape routes and therefore life safety. The financial damage caused by the total loss of a specialised mining vehicle is enormous, not only in terms of equipment costs, but also in terms of meeting critical production deadlines.
Our POWERTECH International GmbH - fire suppression system detects and suppresses fires directly at the source, providing rapid protection and increased safety with minimal impact on personnel.
Another major advantage of our technology is that the system has no electrical requirements, making it ideal for ATEX/flame protection applications, which are often required in these environments.
Indirect fire suppression system
The POWERTECH tube has a double function:
Firstly it detects the high temperatur due to a fire,which causes its break,and subsecuently it discharges the agent through it.
Direct fire suppression system
The POWERTECH tube works as a detection device.
When a fire rises the temperature, the tube detects it and, immediately activares the cylinder releasing the extinguishing agent in the protecteted area though the pipes and nozzles.
Advantages of our systems
POWERTECH International GmbH fire suppression system are particularly characterized by the following features:
