Due to ever more compact and efficient construction machines, which also have to meet stricter and stricter environmental requirements, the risk of fire is increasing. As a result of protecfire‘s consistent development of the extinguishing technology for machine and engine protection that was proven reliable and approved for use in the mining industry, the new and peerless detexline (detection - extinguishing) has been designed.
With this patented system, the extinguishing and pilot function are carried out over just one line. In addition to saving on material and mounting, this solution takes up less space in the object it protects and can be optimally integrated. Disturbing components are a thing of the past.
Whether it‘s digging mineral coal at a depth of 1500m, conveying potash and salt to the surface or building a tunnel, the rough conditions in the mining industry demand a lot from humans and machines.
The protecfire extinguishing system is perfectly suitable for this area because of its compactness and insensitivity to external factors. It is a very effective solution for digging mineral coal because there are no electrical components in the system that could cause an ignition.
Since the system is almost maintenance-free, high expenses and downtimes are significantly reduced for the operating company. Multiple fire tests carried out by Deutsche Montan Technologie have proven the effectiveness of the extinguishing technology.
- Simple installation and (re-)fitting
- Almost maintenance-free – optionally, maintenance can be carried out by the customer‘s own personnel
- Exact and ultra fast fire detection through patented fire detection element
- German mining approval for the extinguishing technology since 2008
- Depressurized in operational mode
- No external power supply needed
- Long extinguishing agent discharge time (up to 90 sec.)
- Use at -30°C to 80°C ambient temperatures
With the fine-spray nozzles developed by protecfire, a comparatively small amount of extinguishing agent can create an enormous reaction surface of extinguishing water droplets, which rapidly lowers the fire‘s energy and also causes a significant decline in temperature.
In this way, the fire source‘s thermal reaction conditions are blocked. When the fire is extinguished, the extinguishing agent forms a sealing film over the components and so prevents any reignition.
