PBE’s fire suppression solutions can detect and suppress fires at the conveyor belt, air compressors, rescue chambers, battery change-out stations and also activate audible and visual alarms.
Fires can occur anywhere electrical devices or conveyor belts are present. The PBE system detects and suppresses fire with water by means of fusible alloy sprinkler nozzles mounted around stationary equipment. PBE has chemical suppression and water based systems, both of which use temperature sensors placed around the area to be protected. The top of the line system in this category is the FlowBoss system designed to exceed MSHA and NFPA pressure requirements. These solutions are customized to cover any belt head, take up or underground belt storage area in the mine.
The fire suppression systems can be monitored and controlled using PBE’s MineBoss™ 2.0.
