Advice on which automatic fire extinguisher system to get???
None. Fix your bus.
Works in the same way as firetec!
You will get your LB forum discount off this too!
Totally agree - i`m not saying the extinguishers are a bad idea but if fire is a worry spend cash on prevention rather than a cure ...
I always thought for the sake of few quid it made sense to do both.
I've just bought one of these......
Not gas, it'll blow away and doesn't cool the source, so will re-light. Foam or powder, the fire service normally use AFFF, foam which forms a film over the fuel source to prevent reignition.
Whenever you look at a video, see how established the fire is. Most of them light it and put it straight out, which is easy as there's no heat build up. Do a test with any fire service and they want to see it burn for quite a while to get really hot before accepting that a test is valid.
A van from the prototype forum caught fire the other day. His air cooled works fire extinguisher put it out, with minimal damage. A good investment if they save family & van!
Thats what I like real stories, I had my doubts about them in real life. Was he driving along or stationary do you know ?
I've copied the post, hope he doesn't mind:
I think folks who fit them also have an automatic fuel shut off valve system as well.
I think the aircooled works one kills the fuel pump in some way
Me also, it:s good to hear of one successfully doing it's duty.
It'd be interesting to hear what caused the fire.
I can see one putting out an electrical fire, but not a semi established petrol fire.
