New technologies also bring new dangers

The development of the lithium battery has made it possible to manufacture lightweight and powerful batteries.
In the case of fires of e-driven vehicles or fires of battery storage facilities, the fire behavior differs from that of gasoline- or diesel-powered vehicles. In the case of battery fires, flammable gases are produced, which lead to small explosions or a strong development of heat. In general, the resulting fire gases and smoke from battery fires are very aggressive and toxic.

The function of a battery is based on chemical reactions. If water is used to extinguish or cool a fire, this extinguishing water is converted to acid / lye (to a greater or lesser extent). With the firefighting robot LUF 60, the fire can be cooled by the efficient use of water mist and thus the spread of the fire can be contained.

Less extinguishing water also means less contaminated extinguishing water, which is harmful to the environment or the sewer system.

Statistically, most fires of vehicles with electric drive occur due to accidents / crashes or during the charging process. In the event of a fire, the protection and safety of the emergency services has the highest priority.

The firefighting robot LUF 60 enables emergency services to bring fires under control from a safe distance and to extinguish or cool them.
