Fire Protection in the Aluminum Industry is a Special Challenge
Even small fires can paralyze the entire production plant. Fire risks are considerable: high temperatures during casting and processing by rolling, forging, extrusion or bending favor the development of fires. Technical defects in production equipment, open construction methods and the interconnectedness of production areas favor rapid fire spread.
Different extinguishing techniques and fire protection concepts are required for the various protection areas within aluminum plants. Minimax offers these fire protection techniques from a single source. In doing so, the experts in fire protection can draw on extensive experience in various industries: whether in automotive, aluminum or energy power plants, logistics centers, offices and administration buildings, data centers or on ships - wherever fire hazards arise, Minimax supplies customized solutions and is also available with a comprehensive range of services after the fire protection system has been installed.
At Aluminium 2022 in Düsseldorf, Minimax will be highlighting two fire protection solutions that are typically used in aluminum plants:
Carbon dioxide systems
Due to its outstanding properties, the carbon dioxide extinguishing system is the ideal fire protection solution for many areas of application. Carbon dioxide extinguishing systems are well-suited for high risk areas, where, in the event of a fire, it is necessary to keep the protected objects available and functioning, to minimize operational interruptions after a fire.
