Published:  21 October, 2010

Welcome to the latest exciting issue of Industrial Fire Journal, where you will notice an increased focus on fire engineering and the latest thinking in fire prevention, detection and of course suppression or extinguishment. Of course that is not to say we are neglecting to bring you important reports on active response as well, and you’ll notice some high-profile case studies and reports in this issue, including the story of the birth of a new firefighting team for an aluminum smelting complex in Abu Dhabi, and the latest research on silo fires and firefighting techniques.

Other articles in this issue that deserve equal attention include; a spotlight on spark detection for fine dust environments; pulsed cleaning for automated drilling assemblies; round-up of the latest water mist projects around the world; sprinkler installations in warehouses; hi-expansion foam systems for the protection of aerosols; how to install linear protection in warehouses; fire pumps of the future; hydrocarbon fire PPE; a new virtual-reality training system from TUIS; a new chapter on mass notification systems from the NFPA; airborne dispersion modeling; crisis management for ports and harbours and a new high-tech virtual-reality training system to train incident responders in ports.
