Custom Designed & Manufactured for Diesel-Powered

Safety is always a concern in the mining industry. Mine equipment very frequently includes diesel-powered engines, which carry safety risks of their own. Heat and Fire are two very important issues that can be virtually eliminated with the use of ATP’s FireWrap®.
FireWrap® is a custom designed soft-blanket insulation system that covers the hottest parts of the engine (exhaust manifold/s, turbocharger/s, exhaust tubing and silencer). Heat is guided out the end of the exhaust pipe, as the engine was designed. Also, flammable materials, such as coal, hydraulic fluid, and fuel, are never able to come in contact with hot surfaces.
As an added measure of protection, customers may order blankets with a Stainless Steel or Inconel liner. The metal liner stops fluids from coming into contact with the insulation fiber – thus eliminating a possible ‘wicking effect.’
