Fire origin and cause investigation and product failure analysis
Our fire investigators were engaged for a cause and origin investigation following a fire in a workshop at a single family residence. After observing the scene and collecting evidence for laboratory analysis, we determined that the potential cause of the fire was a pancake compressor used in the workshop area. After further analysis of the pancake compressor, it was determined that it had overheated during use and caused the fire.
As a part of our investigation, EFI Global also conducted exemplar testing of a new compressor and compared with findings from the fire. Upon completion of the testing, it was determined that the failure of the compressor was due to a manufacturer defect that was present in this type and brand of compressor. As a result of our efforts and investigation, EFI Global worked with the local Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue a formal recall of the product.
