Demonstration of Autonomous Robotic Fire Suppression System, at Donsö Shipping Meet 2022. Want to give it a try?

Unifire AB, a partner of EU-project LASH FIRE, will demonstrate its state-of-the-art FlameRanger™ autonomous robotic fire suppression system at the afternoon of Fire Safety Meet during Donsö Shipping Meet on June 14, 2022.

The water cannon automatically aims the water eerily like a human fire fighter would with a joystick. When the fire is out, the system automatically shuts off the water, but remains ready to react again if any new flames are detected. The system is designed to operate 24/7/365, and typically sprays water onto the fire within about ten seconds from a fire breaking out. The system uses high-tech flame detectors and electronic hardware and software to locate the fire and aim the water cannons. The system is updated 10 times per second. According to Unifire spokesman, Roger Barrett James, “Unifire developed the FlameRanger system for rapid, fully automatic fire fighting in relatively large open areas, such as waste and recycling plants, aircraft hangars, atriums, manufacturing facilities and warehouses, tunnels, building exteriors, on ships, etc. To our knowledge, it is the only automatic robotic nozzle fire fighting system in the world with real-time, three-dimensional aiming from flame detector data.”

FlameRanger autonomously detects fires, locates them, and suppresses them with a high volume of water or foam by means of advanced robotic nozzles (aka fire monitors or water cannons) – all within seconds of a fire breaking out.

Unifire and LASH FIRE cordially invite you to come and see this impressive technology in action, and why not try it yourself by remote control device.
