Flame Detection

Flame detectors are needed for facilities where risk of loss to personnel and property is high. The 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.

Common Applications:

  • Oil and gas pipelines
  • Turbine enclosures
  • Off-shore platforms
  • Automotive manufacturing facilities
  • Aircraft hangers
  • Munitions plants
  • Nuclear facilities

Threats Detected:

  • Hot spots before they ignite
  • Smoke
  • Fire
