Excavators, tunnel boring machines, harvesters, transit buses and other heavy machines work around the clock, often in rugged, hazardous environments. Highly flammable fuels, oils and hydraulic fluids flow through pressurised lines within inches of super-heated engine blocks, manifolds and turbochargers. One ruptured line can result in fast-spreading fire. With ANSUL Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems, however, protection is assured, 24-hours-a-day, 365 days-per-year. Torvac Solutions are an authorised supplier and installer of ANSUL products and can provide consultation and competitive quotes for any vehicle fire suppression system.
The combined performance of the A-101/LVS Twin-Agent Fire Suppression System provides the ultimate protection. While the FORAY dry chemical knocks down flames, the LVS agent cools surrounding areas, minimising the possibility of reflash. The fire suppression system can be used as a protection of large, off-road type construction and mining equipment such as large excavators/shovels, haul trucks, and wheeled loaders. The system also protects underground mining equipment and speciality vehicles such as slag pot and/or slab carriers and tunnel boring machines, as well as waste management equipment and forestry vehicles.
FORAY multipurpose dry chemical agent may be used to combat fires in ordinary combustible materials such as wood, cloth, paper, rubber and many plastics (Class A), as well as fires in flammable liquids, gases and greases (Class B), and fires involving energized electrical equipment (Class C). LVS agent is a wet chemical agent that is a unique blend of organic and inorganic salts, coupled with surface-active ingredients. This blend provides a strong measure of freeze protection along with the foaming properties associated with conventional Class B liquid agents. The agent flows readily into areas where flammable liquids may settle. It provides both fire suppression and superior cooling of superheated surfaces, while blanketing the fuel and cutting off oxygen to help prevent reflash. The FM Approved twin-agent combination has been proven effective in applications where superheated equipment, like a turbocharger, is used.
Torvac Solutions is an authorised installer and distributor of ANSUL Vehicle Fire Suppression systems. The ANSUL A-101/LVS is the ideal system for the protection of large heavy vehicles against the risk of fire.
