Johnson Controls has developed a new fire suppression agent for vehicle systems
Johnson Controls has launched its latest innovation in fire protection technology: the Ansul LVS NF-40 non-fluorinated liquid fire suppression agent for vehicles. The new LVS NF-40 agent provides superior protection against Class A and B fires for mobile equipment in mining, forestry, agriculture, construction and other industries. The agent features an operating temperature range of –40°C to 60°C to help ensure safety in subfreezing climates.
The Ansul LVS NF-40 agent is part of a complete fire suppression solution that protects heavy industrial vehicles such as excavators, haul trucks, loaders, dozers and cranes. The agent is stored within a tank onboard the vehicle. For flexibility in vehicles where installation space is limited, the new 3.0-litre Ansul LVS-M1 tank offers a rugged and sleek one-piece design with integrated mounting points and multiple orientation options.
Ansul LVS NF-40 non-fluorinated liquid fire suppression agent is designed to protect vehicle hazards ranging from superheated surfaces like exhausts and turbochargers to pumps and fuel rails. This product works by rapidly knocking down flames, then blanketing the fuel and cutting off oxygen to help prevent reflash. This biodegradable solution is formulated without the intentional addition of per fluorinated chemicals.
The agent is packaged in three convenient, pre-mixed size options: 11.4-litre containers, 19-litre pails and 1,000-litre totes.
