Thermal Blankets for Hitachi Engine Pipes

Aletek thermal insulation blankets are integral for effective fire mitigation in engine bays on Hitachi mining machinery. Install thermal blankets on heat-generating components such as turbos, manifolds, engine pipes, mufflers and tailpipes to provide a barrier that lowers the outer surface temperature. This barrier will reduce the risk of fire and potential ignition as well as protecting workers from burns.

Strategic Benefits
  • Reduce the risk of expensive engine fires and shutdowns
  • Essential for your ongoing fire moderation strategy
  • Decreased outer surface temperatures for key engine components
  • Faster install times, easier fitment, superior design
  • Ongoing improvements for the ultimate thermal blanket design

We manufacture our blankets from premium materials that we source from high-grade suppliers. Our products are significantly faster to install thanks to pre-fitted springs and our comprehensive blankets fitting guide. Ask us more about the Aletek Advantage for your Hitachi mobile fleet.

Tailor-Made Blankets to suit Hitachi Machines

Engine fires pose a considerable threat to mobile mining fleets. Take, for example, a burst hose burst that leaks fuel, coolant, or oil that then contacts a hot surface such as the exhaust manifold, turbos, or engine pipes. Thermal blankets are a control measure to reduce the surface temperature of red-hot components to reduce the risk of fire ignition. Our range of thermal blankets for Hitachi machines includes:

  • Excavators: EX2500-6, EX2600-6, EX5500-6, EX5600-6
  • Haul Trucks: EH3500AC-3, EH5000AC-3
  • Wheel Loaders: ZW120
