Mining & Materials Processing

Innovative Fire Protection for the Special Hazard Industry

Mining & Materials Processing Applications

Protectowire is committed to providing our customers with the best products and services in the industry through our factory-trained, global distribution network.

Protectowire’s product portfolio was engineered to meet the extreme demands of the mining and material processing industries. This industry requires large expensive pieces of machinery and operational efficiency. Production loss from inoperable equipment can be severe resulting in significant financial costs. Protectowire can protect your assets, we offer unique products and decades of successful installations, our products are engineered for the intense operations associated with these industries.

“Saving lives and assets is our vision at Technoswitch, this is achieved by providing our customers with innovative fire detection solutions, like Protectowire’s CTI linear heat detection system. CTI provides a reliable and confirmed method of detecting fires in mining applications, especially on conveyor belts where false or unwanted fire alarms leads to loss of revenue. The CTI technology compliments the design philosophy around protection of conveyor belts, by activating deluge suppression systems only once a confirmed fire is present. By confirming the presence of heat with the CTI technology, we can confidently activate the required response to safeguard lives and assets.”

THE INDUSTRY LEADER IN LINEAR HEAT DETECTION SINCE 1938

Conveyors

Large drive motors, belts, and roller bearings are stressed to the limit in dirty, dusty, and sometimes hazardous environments within the mining industry. Protectowire linear heat detectors can be installed over the belt or alongside the conveyor near the bearings for overheat detection. Protectowire linear heat detector’s versatile construction enables it to be installed on and around controllers, switches, motors, or other conveyor components with the greatest risk of overheat or fire.

Heavy Equipment

The mining industry relies extensively on expensive special purpose vehicles and heavy processing equipment that are often operating in extremely harsh environments. Protectowire products have been used successfully on all types of mining equipment including hauler trucks, loaders, dozers, drills, or hydraulic shovels. Protectowire linear heat detectors can be easily installed around and throughout the drive, power cables, turbos, hydraulic lines, and motor areas to provide dependable warning of overheat or fire in these critical components.

Waste Management Facilities – Recycling Centers & Transfer Stations

Protectowire linear heat and thermal cameras provide monitoring and fire detection solutions for waste management facilities. A combination of proven technologies is best for this harsh environment. The fire load can be huge in these facilities and ignition to waste products can have catastrophic results.
