FIREFIGHTING TECHNOLOGY FOR EV BATTERY FIRES
The new Rosenbauer Battery Extinguishing System Technology (BEST) is a patented system specifically designed for safe, efficient, and fast extinguishing of lithium-ion, high-voltage batteries in electric vehicles. The piercing nozzle directly injects water into battery modules to rapidly cool ‘thermal runaway’ fires.
BATTERY EXTINGUISHING SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY (BEST)
EV vehicles behave much differently than vehicles with conventional drive systems in many ways such as in event of an accident, faulty charging, etc. The Rosenbauer BEST is able to penetrate the battery housing no matter the material type or thickness. The objective is to cool the battery modules as quickly as possible to stop the fire at its source.
- The extinguishing unit is positioned underneath the electric vehicle. Alternatively, it may be secured to the vehicle or other access points when necessary.
- The operating unit triggers the piercing nozzle to penetrate the battery housing at a safe distance from the fire. Immediately after penetration, the battery housing is flooded with extinguishing water.
ROSENBAUER REMOTE-CONTROLLED FIRE EXTINGUISHING ROBOT
The RTE gives fire departments the ability to remotely extinguish fires without exposing personnel to dangerous situations. With a compact width of 31.5” the RTE fits within standard doorways and other compact spaces. Electric drive allows for more dependability compared to internal combustion as well as high torque for increased towing capacity. The RTE is capable of approximately 6 miles of range depending on payload, operation, and setting. Integrated LED lights and acoustic warning sounds help identify the robot in low visibility situations.
