The company’s line of fire detection and suppression systems for CNC and EDM machines is designed to automatically detect and extinguish oil-based fires. Pressurized tubing bursts to discharge a fire-extinguishing agent when it detects heat radiated from a fire. The detection tubing is flexible for easy routing and is designed to withstand the heat, dirt, oil and vibration common to machine interiors, the company says.
 
The systems are said to be compatible with most commercially available extinguishing agents including CO2 and environmentally friendly “clean” agents such as Dupont FM-200, HFC-227ea and 3M Novec 1230 fire protection fluid. According to the company, these non-toxic agents leave no residue and will not contaminate lubricating oils or fluids.
