TACKLING MOBILE PLANT FIRES

Approved factory-fitted or retrofitted fire suppression systems are readily available, from companies such as Dafo, for heavy handling equipment. Burnt-out wrecks of equipment parked up awaiting an insurance assessor or an occupational safety officer to inspect them remain an all too familiar sight in port terminals.

Insurance industry figures indicate that 50% of all fires on mobile plant are due to poor maintenance. The main cause of fire is fuel, hydraulic fluid, lubricants or built-up flammable deposits leaking on to hot surfaces.

CONVEYOR BELTS ARE A LEADING CAUSE OF UNDERGROUND FIRES YET THEY ARE AVOIDABLE

This year has proven to be one of the deadliest for mine safety in South Africa since 2012. One of the leading causes of deaths and injury in mines is fire and a large proportion of fires are caused by conveyor belts. Conveyor belts are widely used in mining, both under and above ground.

CONVEYOR FIRE PREVENTION SYSTEM ROLLING OUT

Fire protection systems provider Advanced Automated Systems (AAS) is focusing on improving the fire prevention system of conveyors as opposed to most fire-prevention companies that try to prevent the spreading of fires already active on conveyor systems.

AAS has, therefore, finalised the initial tests on its distributed temperature sensing technology, which recognises frictional heating before pyrolysis – the thermal decomposition of materials at elevated temperatures in an inert atmosphere.
