Heavy Machinery Fire Suppression

Home » Fire Suppression Systems » StrykerGreen Fire Suppression Systems » Heavy Machinery Fire Suppression

A fire on your heavy machinery can be devastating. Fires put workers at risk, while damaging valuable assets. They can result in business interruption due to the time it takes to repair the fire damage and may even result in litigation against your business.

Australia has a harsh and dry climate with often unpredictable conditions, therefore it is essential for heavy equipment to be protected with a fire suppression system. Engine compartments, electrical and hydraulic systems can all be targeted to maximise the effectiveness of the system.

How our Stryker fire suppression system works

1. The fire detection component is made up of a pressurised sensor tube. When a fire starts, the rapid increase of temperature causes the sensor tube to burst and thus activate the extinguishing system. A manual actuator is also present.

2. Tubing is laid around and inside the engine compartment, electrical systems and hydraulic systems, to ensure immediate suppression of fire once activated.

3. The extinguishing agent is in a cylinder outside the protection zone. A pressure differential valve releases the agent into the distribution system. The valve is activated by the sensor tube bursting when the fire ignites. Extinguishing agent instantly floods the engine compartment on activation of the cylinder.
