Fire Suppression for Off-Road Heavy Equipment

Advance Planning will Reduce Impact!

Mining, construction, and forestry industries all use off-road commercial vehicles. In these rugged, remote environments heavy equipment used for logging (including mulchers and skidders), drag-lines, and boring machines work long hours in demanding conditions. A fire in these large, expensive hard to replace vehicles not only risks the investment but it can be life threatening.

The main fire hazards include:

  • electrical system shorts in the vehicles’ wiring
  • flammable liquids, such as gasoline or diesel fuel, hydraulic oil, engine oil, and engine coolants are highly flammable under pressure
  • combustible material like wood chips/shavings or other dried plant material

The combination of a heat source with fuel quickly starts a fire. Generally, the fire is situated so the operator can’t see the smoke or flames until there is significant damage.

The Stat-X® aerosol-based fire suppression system is a total flooding system designed to contain the fire to the protected enclosure. Upon activation the aerosol agent is uniformly distributed throughout the enclosure to suppress the fire. The ultra-fine Stat-X particulates stay suspended in the enclosure until vented.

The Stat-X fire suppression system is a stand-alone system that is ideal for these remote conditions. Stat-X is an EPA Snap Listed total flooding Halon 1301 replacement and an alternative to clean agent gas and water solutions. Stat-X is UL Listed for Class A (surface), Class B, and Class C fires.

These machines operate in remote areas that are not easily accessible by fire departments which further implies the need to have a good fire suppression system in place. This is the difference between a minor repair and a total loss.

Be prepared with a Stat-X fire suppression system

Thus, fire protection needs are wide and varied across many applications. The common thread is that fire suppression systems are critical when ensuring a safe work environment and business continuity.
