On fire at Electra Mining Africa 2022: Smart, efficient and cost-effective fire-suppression solutions from FOGMAKER South Africa

FOGMAKER South Africa (Pty) Ltd will use Electra Mining Africa 2022 as a platform to showcase its renowned fire suppression systems as well as to introduce new products and technologies to the mining industry.

“Based on our past experience, this mining exhibition serves as an excellent meeting point for all our stakeholders, from customers, end-users and industry experts to our OEM partners,” says FOGMAKER South Africa’s Managing Director, John Russell. “Alongside our proven Swedish-manufactured FOGMAKER water-mist fire suppression system, this year’s show will also see the unveiling the introduction of Q-TEC Fire’s foam fire suppression solution into our product portfolio.” 

Essentially every diesel engine-operated vehicle and machine is susceptible to fires due to presence of heat, rapid airflow and flammable fluids. Fires present a real and serious threat to mining operations so ensuring that steps are taken to minimise the fire risk through design and operational procedures, and where the fire risk is still unacceptable that an effective, certified and reliable fire suppression system is in place is paramount. A small fire in a mine can spread quickly, leading to catastrophic results including loss of life as well as exorbitant costs linked to damages and downtime.
