Unifire is the World Leader in
Autonomous Robotic Fire Suppression Systems for Waste to Energy & Recycling Plant Facilities

Waste to Energy and Recycling facilities regularly experience fires. When not immediately detected and extinguished, these fires often result in catastrophic loss, including personal injury and even death, as well as devastating damage to the facilities and the environment.

The key to avoiding such losses is

  1. rapid and reliable detection of fire or heat build-up; and
  2. immediate fire suppression with a high volume of water or foam directly on and around the fire.

To meet this challenge, Unifire has developed FlameRanger™ autonomous robotic fire suppression systems.

FlameRanger systems combine state-of-the-art fire detection technologies with Unifire’s cutting-edge electronic hardware and software, which guide our advanced robotic nozzles (aka remote control fire monitors) to aim a high volume of water or foam at and around the fire.

Typically, FlameRanger begins suppressing the fire in under 15 seconds from a fire’s ignition (or heat alarm when combined with thermal imaging cameras).

When fire is no longer detected, the system automatically shuts off the water (or foam) supply, and goes into standby mode, ready to react again should any new fire be detected.

FlameRanger has been developed exclusively by Unifire and is totally unique on the market. It is proven both in numerous in-house and third-party tests as well as in installations in waste and recycling and other industrial facilities spanning 4 continents.

We work with a variety of proven third-party fire detection technologies, including 3IR flame detectors, thermal imaging cameras, video analytics and hybrid video analytics / thermal imaging detectors.

Unifire’s systems are cost-effective and are the most advanced and effective systems available on the market.

Our systems can also be operated by remote control from anywhere in the world, allowing human activation and control whenever desired.
