Fail-Safe Fire Suppression System Detects And Stops Flash-Fires Inside CNC Machines


An automatic fire suppression system that rapidly detects and extinguishes fires inside CNC machines by flooding the workpan and turning the power off has been introduced by Firetrace International of Scottsdale, Arizona.

Firetrace(R) Automatic Fire Suppression Systems feature a flexible, proprietary, polymer tubing which ruptures when exposed to 212°F (100°C) and automatically activates the system to instantly dispense a suppression agent. Capable of detecting a flash-fire and extinguishing it at the source, the system is ideal for protecting CNC machines which use oil-based lubricants.

Easy to install directly into small, narrow spaces such as the machine's cutting- or erosion head, Firetrace Automatic Fire Suppression Systems are totally self-contained and require no electricity or external power, but can automatically shut-down the machine. The flexible tubing can discharge suppression agents such as CO2, FM-200, dry chemical powders, or foam.

Firetrace Automatic Fire Suppression Systems are priced from $2,000.00 fully installed; depending upon suppression agent, size, and complexity.
