Fire protection solutions for the recycling industry
Every year, fires occur in numerous shredders in the recycling industry. Frequent fires in shredders often result in production downtime and loss of revenue. Regardless if you shred waste, paper or other material, a fire in a shredder can occur due to several reasons: for example friction, bearing failure or foreign objects (stones, metal pieces, etc.) in the process.
A fire in a shredder can spread very quickly. Therefore, a fast acting fire protection system that also can withstand the tough conditions in and around a shredder is required.
The main focus of the Firefly ShredderGuard™ solution is to detect and extinguish a fire in a shredder as quickly as possible. This is why a Firefly safety system always consists of three main integrated functionalities: detection, extinguishing and control. By integrating different techniques (flame detection, True IR-detection, full-cone water spray extinguishing and water mist suppression) into one solution, Firefly provides optimal safety for the protection of shredders.
