Industrial Fire and Hazard Control’s Double Assassin multi-purpose fire fighting trailer
Industrial Fire and Hazard Control recently delivered two Double Assassin multi-purpose fire fighting trailer to Tharisa Mine. Chief Fire Officer Jared Jones of Tharisa Mine said that their specific risks included wildland interface, conveyor belt fires, hydrocarbon risks in the form of fuel storage, large hydraulic oil/grease depots, tyre stores, compressors, generators and heavy machinery and that they required two multi-purpose trailers that would be able to address all of the above noted risks. Industrial Fire and Hazard Control was favourably adjudicated based on operational efficiency/capability versus cost investment after Tharisa Mine’s call for quotations. The Double Assassin trailer is built on a dual-axle heavy-duty trailer and offers a 740-litre tank for Class A or Class B foam in premix state. The monitor mounted on the tank has up to 500l/min discharge capability with a stacked tip to adjust flow rate. It comes with 135kg of Purple K dry chemical powder.
Ansul Purple K includes, together with the Potassium Bicarbonate base, ingredients that enhance the flow characteristics and expelling properties but, very importantly, the powder is siliconized to impart excellent water repellency (a very important factor to consider when using Hydro Chem application techniques). The Ansul Purple K is suitable for all B and C class fires that involve flammable liquid fuels such as petrol, diesel, kerosene, oils and alcohols and gasses, etc. A test undertaken by Ansul have proven that Ansul Purple K is twice more effective that the standard Sodium Bicarbonate DCP.
