Repair of cables for refrigerated containers to prevent fires.

Réparer les câbles de conteneurs réfrigérés pour éviter les incendies.

Numéro : pap. n. 1691



This paper analyses the current issue of fires occurring in refrigerated containers during transportation deemed to have started in refrigeration machinery or cargo, the reasons behind such fires and recent developments in technology made with a view to reducing the frequency of such incidents and the safety implications. Initially an overview of the issues faced by operators of refrigeration machinery and the relevant codes of practice is presented. Details of current working methods and requirements of personal in a variety of departments are also considered. The principal causes are examined, discussion of methods to prevent failures on existing and future refrigeration systems and the operational issues surrounding any changes to work practices considered. The overwhelming majority of these hazardous refrigeration machinery fires are not as a result of the machinery itself or the cargo but rather damage to power cables and their subsequent sub-standard repair.
