The CAT Vehicle Suppression Systems are pre-engineered systems utilizing I-PROTECT linear heat detection tubing as well as specialized discharge nozzles to safely and efficiently suppress fires and cool down engine compartments, wheel arches and brake cooling systems to a safe working temperature on buses (BSS), heavy duty mechanical vehicles (VSS) and armored vehicles (AVSS). In-cab water mist suppression systems are also
Surface and underground conveyor belt suppression is one of the most common applications for CAT’s LSS and consists of three sub-systems i.e. primary suppression, cooling zones, and a redundancy system (including an early warning system); collectively capable of suppressing fires on complete conveyor belt installations.
CAT’s handheld water and foam mist extinguishers are capable of extinguishing Class A, B, C and K fires.
Both types of extinguishers aim to effectively suppress the fire while minimizing collateral damage and causing no thermal shock to equipment.
