Protect what is important

This is how you protect persons and property, avoid production losses and minimise secondary damage

Safety first – fire protection plays an important role in each production.

The goal of fire protection is to effectively protect persons and property against the dangers and effects of fire. Furthermore, it is necessary to minimise material damdage that is caused by production interruptions or loss of customers.

However, the risk of fire is even encouraged unconciously.

In order to optimise profit, production facilities become more and more efficient, and production losses are inacceptable. But fire and explosions are a risk factor in many processes.

How high is the risk?

Every 5 minutes
a fire breaks out in German companies

More than 2 billion € per year
is the damage sum for German factories.

Glowining embers & smouldering fire
are often the cause of fires and explosions

Consequential damages
are often disastrous events for concerned companies

Consequential damages

1/3

of the companies survive. Often by merger or acquisition.

1/3

the companies are insolvent by damage caused by fire

1/3

of the companies are insolvent within 3 years by loss of customers

How can you protect your plant?

Fire protection is to be looked at in its entirety.
Effective fire protection consists of several measures that support

Structural

Structural fire protection helps to prevent fires and to isolate them. A burning fire is prevented from spreading.

Technical

By technical fire protection, one understands facilities that, in case of fire, automatically contribute to avoid personal injuries or property damage.

Organisational

Organisational fire protection includes personnel and organisational measures that contribute to prevent a fire from arising or spreading.

Where are the Risks in Your Production?

Explosions and fires are great risk factors in many industries

Industries

Wood 100.00 27.90%
Food 95.70 26.70%
Metal 46.24 12.90%
Plastic material 39.07 10.90%
Charcoal 37.63 10.50%
Other 35.13 9.80%
Paper 4.66 1.30%

Areas of application

Silos / Bins 100.00 34.70%
Filters / Dust extractions 58.50 20.30%
Dryer 27.67 9.60%
Mills / Shredders 25.94 9.00%
Screens / Seperators 15.56 5.40%
Other 12.10 4.20%
Mechanical transport systems 12.10 4.20%
Grinding machines 10.37 3.60%

Damage is caused in downstream plant areas and not in the place of origin of the sparks (e.g. dryer, burner, sander etc.). Therefore a spark extinguishing system is the safest solution.

Spark Extinguishing System BS 7

Eliminates sparks

The GreCon Spark Extinguishing System detects ignition sources wherever material is pneumatically or mechanically extracted or transported. Sparks or glowing embers are eliminated even before severe damage is caused.

Machine Fire Protection FLAMEWOLF

Extinguishes arising fire

GreCon develops protection concepts for object protection on the basis of the individual requirements of the particular production process. Thanks to a modular design and a large range of detection and extinguishing equipment, GreCon object protection solutions are applied in many industries.
