- How it Works
High temperatures in the engine compartment and often working with high external temperatures in dry conditions can lead to the potential for devastating consequences if fire ignites.
Any downtime during harvest due to a combine harvester vehicle fire can be a disaster, however automatic fire suppression can minimise the risk and damage ensuring complete fire protection.
Protecting wheel loaders from the risk of fire and total loss can be achieved through automatic fire suppression systems fitted within the engine compartments to provide asset protection.
As workhorses for any farming operation, fire can easily start within the engine bay and spread quickly throughout the vehicle. Fire suppression quickly detects and extinguishes the risk.
Agriculture is a vital global industry responsible for the food security of every nation. The sector makes a major economic contribution, producing livestock, poultry, crops and fish that means we can put healthy food on our tables.
Rapid advances in equipment technology enable farming professionals to improve productivity, yields and environmental impact. But despite all of the developments, agriculture still remains a hazardous industry. With heavy machinery such as combines, ploughs, balers and tractors playing a huge role in day-to-day operations, injuries and fire are ever present risks faced by agricultural workers.
Every year thousands of farm buildings, machines and acres of grassland are destroyed by fire. Heavy plant equipment is often relied on to work around the clock in some of the most gruelling conditions. High temperatures, rapid air flows and flammable fluids in engine bays can combine to create a near perfect environment for fires to start.
Vehicles found in this environment have a demanding schedule and must perform around the clock. This is no different from the Automatic fire suppression that will also be subject to these conditions. Reacton® ensure that our equipment offers its high performance when called upon.
Our Vehicle Waste & Recycling system features include:
With operators concentrating on the task at hand, a fire might not be spotted quickly, especially if it’s hidden in an engine bay. By the time it is noticed, the fire will likely have already caused extensive damage to the vehicle and become too dangerous to tackle with a handheld fire extinguisher. Within minutes, a seemingly small fire can spread quickly, bringing the operation to a standstill.
Reacton’s automatic fire suppression systems keep watch over your most valuable assets, so you don’t have to. Providing day and night fire protection for heavy vehicles, our A+ rated systems are installed in and around the fire risk areas. Within seconds of detecting the heat from the flames, the system will release an extinguishing agent straight into the heart of the fire. Protecting your assets and meaning your vehicles will be back in operation with minimal to no clean-up.
