Fire Suppression Systems in the Food Manufacturing & Process Industry
Faulty machine parts and high process temperatures are just two of the potential causes of overheating, sparks or other hot spots which can then activate fire and dust explosions in mechanical and pneumatic conveying facilities in addition to downstream filters, silos and bins. There are numerous danger zones or risk areas that need to be continually protected and these include;
- Industrial fryers
- Extraction systems
- Hammer mills
The consequences of fire
Fires within the industry are an occupational hazard and can seriously impact on the future viability of a company. The key to maintaining business critical continuity is to take a proactive approach and ensure that the most appropriate fire suppression system is matched to individual needs.
