Tyco Fire Protection Products and one of its leading global brands, Ansul, will debut the Ansul Experience at MINExpo International 2016 in booth 7871 when the exposition opens on Monday, Sept. 26. The Ansul Experience will immerse attendees in the simulation of real-life scenarios, showcasing how a fire protection system works from detection to actuation to suppression, and will feature the new Ansul Checkfire AXP Vehicle Detection and Actuation System with Quad IR Optical Sensors.
Booth visitors will have the opportunity to step inside specific hazard areas, such as an engine room and electrical cabinet, typically found in a mobile equipment unit. Tyco Fire Protection Products representatives will take attendees through a tour of the hazard areas and a fire event showing how ANSUL fire detection, actuation and suppression systems work together to help protect mobile equipment. Attendees will gain hands-on knowledge of what happens during a fault condition by interacting with the new ANSUL AXP Detection and Actuation system’s control module, similar to what mobile equipment operators experience in a cab.
“The Ansul Experience will give MINExpo attendees a behind-the-scenes look at how our time-tested mobile equipment fire protection solutions work. We are also excited to offer a first look at two upcoming products,” said Raj Arora, vice president and general manager, Fire Detection and Special Hazard Products, Tyco Fire Protection Products. “We know the mining industry works in tough environments and some of the toughest terrains, which is why we constantly strive to enhance our products and engineer new technologies, such as the new Ansul Checkfire AXP and Quad IR Optical Sensors, to help keep people and equipment protected.”
The new Ansul Checkfire AXP is expandable, addressable and fully programmable for mega-class mobile equipment, including electric shovels, haul trucks, draglines and other specialty equipment. Together with fast detecting Quad IR Optical Sensors, which provides unmatched ability to differentiate between open flames and hydrocarbon signaures, Checkfire AXP provides pinpoint suppression to knock down flames at the source. Multiple protection zones are controlled by a single, operator friendly control module, which will be showcased in the ANSUL Experience in the booth.
