AFEX fire suppression systems are known for their proven technology and ability to combat flames at their source; before they have a chance to become established and spread to other machines.
The physical layout of the average hydraulic fracturing spread or drilling operation is a logistical nightmare when it comes to fire. The vehicles operate side-by-side with little room between them, creating an environment where fire can quickly spread and access for firefighting is nonexistent. Frac pumps, blender units and diesel generator sets all present a significant fire risk, and a fire on a single machine can rapidly spread and burn through the millions invested in the site.
Thankfully, there is already an established way to combat the fire risk on heavy equipment. AFEX fire suppression systems attack the source of the flames before they have a chance to become established and spread to your other machines. All AFEX fire suppression systems can be easily serviced and recharged in the field, making them ideal for even the most high-risk environments and applications.
