Automatic Fire Suppression In The Mining Industry

The global mining industry is pivotal to the world’s economy, with industries across the globe depending on the supply of commodities from underground. In its search for, extraction, beneficiation and processing of naturally occurring solid minerals from the earth, mining is an industry that relies on plant machinery to do the heavy lifting.

Some of the biggest trucks on the planet are found working tirelessly at mines and are capable of moving extreme payloads in excess of 450 tonnes, which is more than a fully loaded Airbus A380. With multiple diesel engines generating 6 times more power than a Formula 1 racing car, these trucks operate around the clock in extreme conditions. Along with dozers, excavators, wheel loaders and shovels, these heavy lifters are relied on to keep these operations moving 24 hours a day.

The Importance Of Fire Suppression In Mining

Fire poses an ever present threat to mine operations, with over a third of fires originating from vehicles. A small fire in a mine, either on the surface or underground, can rapidly become catastrophic result in loss of life. Heat, flammable fluids and rapid air flow in engine bays culminate to provide a near perfect environment for fires to start.

Mining regulations can be complex and can differ significantly from country-to-country. But an unquestionable parallel is the approach to reducing fire risk. Which is why regulators, such as MSHA, advocate the installation of automatic fire suppression equipment, such as Reacton’s P-Mark 199 heavy vehicle accredited systems, in battery and engine compartments.
