Fire hazards generally exist on the whole production line. Metallic friction, condensation of volatile substances, oil leaks and fiber deposits particularly in close proximity to the pneumatic exhaust systems, may all assist in starting a fire.
From experience the highest risk of fire comes from the press inlet and the press outlet, where amongst others units, such as cleaning, lubrication
and extraction systems exist. In the press inlet the entering pre-compressed material mat and the deposits are exposed to strong physical influences, by extreme heat supply and high pressure, and thus may easy ignite.
A particularly high number of fires start at the press outlet, where volatile substances leave the extremely hot board and ignite upon contact
with oxygen in the air.
The complex design of the press prevents the water spray from the ceiling sprinklers from reaching and wetting the fire in its interior. Protection with a Minifog PressProtect System will help to protect your production systems
from fire damage and expensive downtimes.
