SHIELD fire safety solutions
Fire risk under control in welding fume extraction systems
Plymovent presents SHIELD fire safety solutions1. This range of products reduces the risk of filter fires in the metalworking industry to a minimum. SHIELD products are divided into three categories: products to prevent fire, detect fire and suppress fire. Smoke, heat and sparks are detected at the earliest stages to minimise system damage and to avoid the fire from spreading and smoke from accumulating in the workshop.
Fire is a serious risk and can occur unexpectedly inside filtration systems. Some welding and cutting applications have a higher risk than others to cause fire, due to such factors as higher temperatures, more sparks or lower flash points.
