ANSUL Underground Mining

Underground mining is a high risk operation, a fire can mean loss of equipment, production or even life. It can also create a public relations nightmare and attract higher insurance premiums. ANSUL Underground mining has provided protection for heavy machinery for over 40 years and is the world’s leading provider of fire suppression systems for heavy vehicles and machinery.

LVS Liquid Agent is designed for mobile mining equipment.

Mobile mining equipment operates virtually non-stop with flammable liquids flowing through pressurised lines within inches of super-heated engine blocks. The ANSUL LVS Fire Suppression System provides both fire suppression and superior cooling of super heated surfaces while blanketing the fuel and cutting off oxygen to help prevent reflash. The liquid agent flows readily into hard-to-reach areas along the same path flammable liquids may have travelled. Additional features include tank capacities of 5 gal to 30 gal (18.9 L to 113.6 L) and an effective operating range of -40 °F to 140 °F (-40 °C to 60 °C).

ANSUL offer a complete line of fire detection equipment, suppression systems and hand portable extinguishers for underground mining applications. ANSUL provides 24 hour fire protection with fully self-contained dry chemical and twin-agent systems that suppress, cool and prevent reflash. Torvac is an authorized supplier and installer of ANSUL products and can design a specific solution to your fire suppression requirements.
