ETI FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS
Heavy mobile and stationary machinery represent very substantial investments. Loss of this equipment, production and subsequent danger to the associated personnel is ever-present. Whilst mining is perhaps the major application for the ETI fire system, there are a multitude of other applications including, forestry, construction, power generation and marine equipment operating in harsh environments inside, outside, underground and at sea.
The installation of a fire detection and suppression system is essential to minimize the risk to both operator and equipment, and is a mandatory requirement in many of the states of Australia due to the significant population of mining industry there.
With many modern vehicles or equipment designs, the operators are often positioned well away from the location of the fire risk. Modern cabs are well insulated from noise and temperature, and operators may not be aware of the presence of fire in their equipment until it is beyond the control of normal portable fire extinguishers. Faced with these dangers operators can and do panic and in most cases abandon the equipment rather than undertake first aid fire protection.
Field experience had shown the need for improvement over earlier Dry Chemical Powder suppression systems. These systems generally suffered from compaction of the powder, and often resulted in less than efficient operation. Similarly, the release of a large cloud of chemical powder contributed substantially to the operators visibility and ability to escape as well as serious respiratory difficulty due to inhalation. The advantage of Aqueous Film Forming Foam over gaseous, dry chemical powder and vaporizing liquid systems is their ability to control fire after the discharge is complete, to cool hot spots preventing re-ignition and to flow with the fuel spills underneath the vehicle.
ETI is leading in the development of foam protection systems, with fully qualified, university educated mechanical and electronics enigineers at the cutting edge of professionalism. These systems have been installed on thousands of vehicles and other equipment worldwide over the past 13 years and have proved themselves as successful fire detection and suppression systems. Unlike other ‘so called’ professionals out there claiming all sorts of success when in actual fact, there is no other properly qualified graduate engineers in this industry in Indonesia other than ETI. Don’t take a chance with ex mechanics or fitters, always ask for formal qualifications in this vital area of protecting extremely valuable equipment and, above all, human life. Don’t risk it.
