The impact of a fire on a mining operation can be disastrous. Protecting a site against hazards that cause underground mine fires requires special purpose fire suppression systems.
Because of the confined spaces and time to evacuate, a fire is a severe hazard in mines and outbreaks can be a serious threat to operators and equipment. Ensuring that an effective and quality mining fire suppression system is installed and maintained throughout its lifetime is one of the essential steps in protecting ‘mission-critical’ assets and people from the danger of fire in such an environment.
