Using the rugged and reliable AFEX systems, we can help protect you from the high risks associated with the debris and residue fire risks in your agricultural equipment. In addition to the system, a rigorous maintenance and cleaning policy can help you reduce your fire risk, and a purpose-built fire suppression system can help minimise damage to your machine if a fire does occur.
Agricultural machines have a high risk of fire due to the build-up of debris such as straw and crop residue. The heat from the engine and exhaust components can ignite this debris, resulting in a fire that damages or destroys the machine and can spread to the surrounding crops. United Safety’s AFEX systems provide versatile protection against these risks. Once installed, an AFEX system becomes a permanent part of the machine and with proper maintenance, can last its entire service life.
AFEX comes in three configurations: dry chemical, liquid agent, and dual agent. Each system can be activated manually or automatically and can be configured to accommodate any piece of equipment, large or small. All AFEX fire suppression systems can be easily serviced and recharged in the field with standard everyday hand tools. AFEX systems are rugged, reliable, and effective, protecting your heavy agricultural equipment from loss and production downtime.
