Industry Risks

The Mining industry has very high risks for fire, which is directly due to the harsh conditions and around the clock operations. The risk of fire is present with all types of mining equipment and within the mining operations buildings. If these risks are not being adequately covered this could prove to be devastating. 

Fires can start with any piece of equipment whether it be small vehicles, heavy duty mining equipment, buses, backup generators to electrical cabinets, server racks or kitchens, just to name a few.

When such difficult situations arise, we don’t seem to react and respond in the most appropriate manner and follow the respective protocols, however, by having an automatic fire system in place, the risk of damage or injury are greatly reduced. 

Consequences

The consequences of fire on a piece of equipment can be catastrophic. There is an extremely high likelihood of the fire spreading rapidly and the damage may not only be contained to the ignition area. Equipment damage, operator injury, loss of production or even loss of life always needs to be considered. A fire that has not been quickly detected and acted upon can cause serious damage if left too long. The fire will grow with time and encompass more area and would require more time, effort and resources to extinguish. A slow extinguishment is risking not only major damage and
shutdowns, but also the lives of the people.

The BlazeCut Difference

While fire extinguishers are affordable and easy to install, we recommend having at least one installed on every piece of equipment. However, their effectiveness is based upon various factors such as the extent of fire it needs to cover, the user’s familiarity and adaptability etc. Even if these factors are all well covered their effectiveness remains limited. This still doesn’t eliminate the very real possibility of the user getting burnt in case they get too close to the fire or due to limited previous experience.  

BlazeCut Fire systems automatically actuate within seconds in the area covered when a fire occurs, extinguishing the fire in seconds leaving very minimal damage. Smaller systems can be installed in under an hour by a professional installer avoiding major disruption for equipment demands.

BlazeCut offers ready-to-install fire suppression solutions ideal for fleet vehicles, buses, trucks, heavy equipment, electrical cabinets, and server racks as well as more comprehensive solutions and installs for larger or more complex equipment and building applications.
