Vehicle Fire Suppression Repair
Vehicle fire suppression systems are a driver or operator’s first line of defense in safely escaping equipment during a fire. A properly installed and operating system protects lives, mitigates downtime, and prevents you from having to replace expensive equipment.
Liberty Fire Solutions provides complete commercial fire suppression repair services, including bus fire suppression repair and heavy equipment fire suppression repair. Our fire suppression repair services are designed to ensure your system is ready to withstand the most challenging conditions.
How Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems Work
You can install vehicle fire suppression systems on any vehicle, including buses and heavy equipment. A great alternative to traditional fire extinguishers, these systems are often used on airport vehicles, agricultural equipment, and various plant and machinery equipment.
Vehicle fires can start at any time, even when the vehicle is unattended. The detection wires built into a vehicle suppression system are wrapped around the vehicle’s engine. When a melted wire touches another wire, the system sends a message to a control panel to extinguish the fire. Manual systems require the vehicle operator to push a button to initiate the suppression system.
Fire Suppression Repair Services
There are two types of vehicle fire suppression systems.
- Dry systems saturate a vehicle’s engine compartment with a fire-fighting agent, smothering the flame.
- Wet systems use a wet chemical agent that provides fire suppression and cooling of superheated surfaces while cutting off oxygen to prevent reflash.
Some systems are dual-agent and use both dry and wet chemical agents. The dry chemicals extinguish flames while the wet ones cool surrounding areas.
When your vehicle fire suppression system malfunctions, you need immediate service to keep your employees and vehicles safe. Regular inspections help keep your system in good working order. During an inspection, our trained technicians will look for issues with parts and components like:
- LED light indicators and alarm systems
- Hose assemblies
- Control panels
We’ll also check the last recharge date on each cylinder and confirm the chemical is free flowing. If the system needs recharging, we handle that, too.
