Advanced Mining offers the world's widest range of equipment for rock drilling, rock excavation, processing, demolition, bulk-materials handling and equipment for surface and underground mining.


The patented Sandvik FS1000 is a pre-engineered fire suppression system that requires no electrical or gas cartridge activation devices. A simple release of the stored pressure in the activation line initiates the foam discharge.

Our range of tanks and the ability to combine multiple tanks to make larger systems makes it possible to custom fit the system to any equipment.

Designed and manufactured in Australia, the FS1000 greatly reduces risk to people and property by providing effective fire protection and therefore safer operating conditions. It has been specifically designed to suppress hydrocarbon fuel & oil fires by application of AFFF or FFFP foam extinguishing agent.
