Gensets and Engine Compartments

Leaks in fuel lines or hydraulic hoses can cause fuel or hydraulic oil to spill, evaporate, and spread throughout the compartment. Once in contact with hot components, the fuel or oil can ignite - filling the whole compartment with fire. Our systems protect these areas using linear pneumatic detection which triggers the release of dry chemical within the compartment to suppress the fire.

Electrical Cabinets

Faults in panels within the crane's electrical room can quickly start a fire. A fire in an unprotected panel can destroy the panel and spread throughout the electrical room. Our systems protect the panels with pneumatic heat detection tubing which bursts at the source of the fire, releasing the clean agent to suppress the fire. Clean agent will not damage equipment and is safe for the operator and the environment.

Electrical Rooms

Overcurrent can cause components and wiring to burn or lead to arc flash within the crane's electrical room. In these cases, the spread of fire can be catastrophic, destroying the room and possibly the crane. Protect these electrical rooms with a total flood system using a clean agent which does not damage equipment and is safe for operators and the environment.
