Preventing Heavy Equipment Fire Disasters

OFF-ROAD HEAVY EQUIPMENT FIRE RISKS

Whether you’re working with hydraulic equipment on a fracturing spread, you’re running a CAT haul truck at a mining site, or harvesting timber with a John Deer feller buncher, every machine is different, and each industry and piece of equipment has unique fire risks.

FIRE RISK IN HYDRAULIC FRACTURING SPREADS

The physical layout of the average hydraulic fracturing spread or drilling operation, with equipment operating in close proximity to flammable materials as well as other equipment, creates a high risk situation with limited fire-fighting access. Frac pumps, blender units, and diesel generator sets all present a significant fire risk and a fire on a single machine can rapidly spread and burn through the millions invested in the site.
