ARJES, the global supplier and manufacturer of double-shaft shredders, has recently chosen Protecfire’s fire suppression systems for their machinery. Known for their commitment to quality and attention to detail, ARJES’ decision to select Protecfire’s Detexline 4MC system is a significant endorsement of the technology’s effectiveness and reliability. This move is sure to further solidify ARJES’ position as a leading provider of high-mobility shredders with a superior range of applications.

Fire suppression systems are an essential safety feature for shredder machines used in a wide range of industries, including waste management, recycling, and construction. The high-speed and friction generated during shredding processes can create a significant amount of heat and sparks, increasing the risk of fires.

To prevent fires and ensure worker safety, many shredder manufacturers now offer fire suppression systems as an add-on option. These systems are designed to detect and suppress fires quickly, minimizing damage to equipment and facilities.

Protecfire’s Detexline 4MC fire suppression system is a popular choice for shredder machines. It is a versatile and cost-effective solution that is easy to install and maintain. The system utilizes advanced detection technology to quickly identify the presence of flames or excessive heat and deploys a fine spray  to extinguish the fire in seconds.

Investing in a reliable fire suppression system is crucial for any company that utilizes shredder machines. It not only protects valuable equipment and facilities but also ensures the safety of employees and helps to maintain regulatory compliance.


🔥 The 5 most common causes of fires in recycling machines are:

➡️ Overheating due to technical deficiencies

➡️ Defective electrical systems or damaged cables
➡️ Spark generation from processing metallic materials
➡️ Improper operation and/or maintenance of the equipment
➡️ Hazardous fire substances such as LI batteries, flammable liquids, etc.

Even the dual-shaft shredders, such as the 𝗧𝗜𝗧𝗔𝗡 𝟵𝟬𝟬, pose a potential fire risk to operators of recycling plants. After all, they process flammable materials such as paper, plastic, and wood, which are easily combustible for the reasons mentioned above. Therefore, it is often advisable to take certain precautions to reduce the risk of fire in shredding plants.

Protecfire has developed a revolutionary technology for firefighting and installed it in one of our 𝗧𝗜𝗧𝗔𝗡 𝟵𝟬𝟬. 💪 The installation was quick and easy, as there are only four main components: liquid container, manual trigger, detectors, and spray bars. We find it to be a sensible and effective precautionary measure.
