At Industrial Fire Prevention, we apply spark detection and special IR detectors as one of the solutions to prevent fires in production facilities. IR Spark detectors are used for fire prevention since they are designed to detect and stop ignition sources from getting into areas at risk, such as dust filters and silos.
Specific spark detection application is used in wood, paper, food, textiles, plastics, recycling, and the energy industries to prevent fires and dust explosions.
Spark detection systems use highly sensitive IR detectors in various IR ranges, that detect ignition sources and activate responses within milliseconds, sometimes extinguishing with water or gas, without interrupting the production. These extremely fast detectors are vital since they ensure against down-time of production and avoid personal injuries and property damage.
At Industrial Fire Prevention, we use and recommend GreCon Spark Extinguishing Systems, BS 7. GreCon spark detection and extinguishing systems ensure spark monitoring through special sensors and hence can be used in many positions of the production process. IR detectors monitor conveyors and can if necessary activate high-speed water or gas extinguishing within milliseconds. A high speed diverter or shut-off of the product flow is an option and is used whenever extinguishment with water is not desireable. The control console monitoring system records events in milliseconds, and safety measures are automatically activated through the alarm andinterlock systems. The situation is thus controlled without interrupting production systems unnecessarily.
With GreCon spark detection and extinguishing systems, a very high measure of operational safety and reliability is achieved which helps in the permanent opperability of production facilities of high investment value. We provide spark detection solutions in Florida, Georgia and Alabama.
