Mobile plant fire suppression, and machinery fire protection systems

The best type of protection from fire is prevention. We put systems in place which minimise the risk of fire and its impact on busy working environments populated with staff, machinery and valuable assets.

Mobile plant and machinery fire protection

Dafo fire suppression systems are able to eliminate fire in the first instance. This multi-levelled system is designed to detect and suppress a potential fire before it gets out of hand, while also alerting anyone within the hazardous area. In this way we aim to help you to protect your staff and minimise costly damage to your equipment.

The system is made up of three integrated elements which work in conjunction to detect early warning signs of fire and suppress the potential outburst, while also raising an alarm to alert persons operating the machinery.

  • Detection: linear heat detection cable is routed throughout the engine, positioned in high risk areas for fire for the earliest possible warning of potential fire hazard.
  • Alarm: situated both in the operator cabin and externally, an alarm system will alert personnel to the potential fire. This alarm can be released manually or automatically from the operator cabin or the control room and can be installed in any other control room or necessary area.
  • Suppression: A distribution network within the engine of the machine has been designed with flexible, fire-resistant hydraulic hoses and stainless-steel piping with DW2 nozzles. Upon activation, the engine will be dowsed, with all high-risk areas being the primary focus. Eliminating the potential fire as quickly and efficiently as possible.

  • Interlocking fields of spray for optimum coverage and cutting off oxygen supply
  • Special droplet size and semi-coarse spray cool high-risk areas quickly
  • Consistency ensures all engine components are covered, targeting burning fuel
  • Prevents reignition by saturating both the fuels and ignition source
  • Easy clean up to salvage engine after the fire risk is eliminated
