Abstract

Purpose. Investigation of ways to prevent combine harvester fires arising from heat generation processes in friction units and processed plant materials.

Methods. Analysis of the causes of fires on combine harvester by heating of friction units and processed plant matter.

Findings. A significant number of fires on combine harvesters occurs due to heating of frictional surfaces and ignition of plant matter. The ways of solution of the complex problem of increasing fire safety of combine harvesters are presented in the work. A rational solution to this problem is the use of new composite materials, use of modern control and fire extinguishing systems. In addition, the fire safety of cereal-harvesting machines is ensured by controlling the temperature of the friction units, preventing them from overheating, timely maintenance and keeping the combine clean. Application field of the research. The presented results can be used in the field of ensuring fire safety of enterprises of the agro-industrial complex.
