Upon detection of a fire, Firetrace can discharge a fire-suppressing agent in as little as 4 seconds. In most machine applications either FM-200 or CO2 is the preferred agent.
Both of these are clean agents and will leave no residue in the event of a discharge. Firetrace CNC machine fire protection systems can work with a variety of other agents for specialized applications and materials such as titanium. Always discuss your needs with your Firetrace representative to ensure proper protection.
More than 5,000 machines are protected worldwide. Firetrace receives more than one report each week about machines saved from significant damage thanks to Firetrace. In fact, in these incidents operators frequently report that Firetrace reacts so quickly that the machine is undamaged by the fire.
Typically, once the issue that caused the fire is corrected the machine was restored to operation, no clean up required, thanks to clean agent fire suppressants that do not contaminate the oil.
