MINEShield – The ultimate fire protection solutions for the harsh conditions of mining applications
When you combine 24/7 heavy-duty non-stop working with heat, flammable liquids, turbo chargers, exhaust fumes and electrical components, the risk of fire in mines is exceptionally high. Conveyor belts – with their continuous friction, high working temperatures and static electricity buildup – represent a particularly high fire risk, as they might spread furious fire over long distances.
Fires grow rapidly in scope and intensity; hence the elapsed time between the onset of a fire and its detection is critical!
At the heart of Lehavot’s MINEShield solutions is DELTA – our unique pneumatic-electronic linear fire/overheat detector that analyzes the Rate of temperature Rise (RoR) within monitored regions via stainless steel tubing, providing real-time alerts to fire or overheating and, where appropriate, automatically triggering the suppression system.
The DELTA is the world’s most reliable fire/overheat detection device. It responds with high accuracy and sensitivity to temperature rises that exceed a predetermined rate, irrespective of the starting temperature. The DELTA can be calibrated according to each monitored zone’s environmental conditions.
MINEShield features and benefits:
Fast Detection – Rapidly detects fires, minimizing damage and injuries.
Extremely Reliable – Low rate of false alarms.
Distant Sensing – Identifies fires or overheating occurring at a considerable distance from the sensor tubing. It does not require line-of-sight to the fire.
Audio and Visual Indications – Combines integrated detection and control capabilities.
Performance Monitoring – Advanced Built-in Test (BIT) module that indicates failure in the event of reduced performance over the detection tubing.
Robust Structure and Durability – Non-pressurized system better tolerates grime, dirt, and extreme environmental conditions.
Low Cost of Ownership – Relatively low cost, low maintenance, and low power consumption.
Easy Installation – The stainless steel tubing can be routed to monitor large areas or confined spaces.
Cost-Effective – A single unit replaces multiple ordinary detector units and a separate control unit.
Quality you can trust
