Flame Detection

Commercial flame and fire detection systems.

Fire detection is a critical step in fire prevention. A properly functioning, well-maintained fire detection system can reduce or eliminate a risk before it becomes a problem. There are many types of hazards and applications that require a thorough understanding of the regulations and technology to give the best protection. The Hiller Companies has decades of experience along with the technical capability to design, install and maintain a full spectrum of fire protection systems and keep them in peak condition.

Flame or fire detection systems respond to radiant energy, both visible to the human eye and undetectable to the human eye. Flame detector devices are sensitive to glowing embers, coals and flames that are detectable by intensity and spectral quality. There are three types of flame detection systems: infrared, ultraviolet and infrared/ultraviolet.

Fire detection options include: flame detection, heat detection, smoke detection, air sampling, cable and digital sensor linear detection. Hiller represents some of the most respected detection and fire alarm manufacturers in the world and can customize any system to meet individualized fire detection needs.
