Printing, coating or laminating material for packaging or publication can involve solvent based inks, flammable aqueous coating materials, lubricants, hydraulic fluids and a buildup of paper dust in their processes. These materials when combined with the heat from motors, dryers and friction can result in disastrous outcomes that threaten both expensive equipment and operators. Rapid response fire suppression, designed to the specific equipment configuration is essential.
