How to prevent the generator set from catching fire: The 8-hour fuel tank used by Volvo generators is supplied by gravity or electric pump. The electric pump of large fuel tank far away should be equipped with a valve that automatically cuts off sudden fire. The materials in the fire extinguisher in the diesel generator room must be made of foam, which can be directly used by the pump or fire box. At the same time, the fire extinguisher should always be placed near the Volvo generator and the fuel storage.

Another important reason is that the fire in the oil and electricity room is very dangerous, and the applicable types of fire extinguishers are few. In this case, we recommend using BCF, carbon dioxide or powder desiccant. In addition, asbestos blanket is also a useful fire extinguishing material. Foam rubber can also extinguish oil fires far away from electrical equipment.

The place where diesel oil is discharged shall always be kept clean to prevent oil splashing. Small granular mineral absorbents can be placed around the machine room site, but fine sand shall not be used. Keep the machine room dry. Like these absorbents, they also absorb moisture, which is dangerous in places with electricity, as is abrasive. They should be placed separately from fire extinguishing equipment. Staff should pay attention that absorbent and abrasive cannot be used on Volvo generators or joint distribution equipment. The cooling air can flow around the desiccant. Therefore, before starting the Volvo generator, clean or remove the desiccant as much as possible.

In case of fire in Volvo generator room, the operation of Volvo generator shall be stopped in an emergency to prevent electric leakage in the room. From the above, we can see that one key point is that the layout of the machine room must avoid combustibles, the water circuit design should also be reasonably arranged, and some other fire prevention equipment should also be prepared to prevent problems before they occur.
