Various Flame Detector Types
Flame detectors are known for their fast response to open fires. Applications vary from indoor to outdoor and from hydrocarbon to non-hydrocarbon fuels. SENSE-WARE offers the best suitable Flame detector types – UV, UV/IR and IR3 – for your plant. With SENSE-WARE Flame Detectors installed the safety of your workers is monitored while at the job or back at home with friends or family. A Flame detector self-test is performed every hour to make sure the sensor and electronics operate well. A Test Lamp is available for regular inspections and end-to-end testing.
Why are there different Flame detector types?
Different types of burning materials emit different types of flames. In order to prevent false alarms (false positives) and avoid non-detection of real fires (false negatives), we have to optimize the sensors for the actual radiation from the possible fires and also keep the price of the Flame detectors as reasonable as possible. This is why SENSE-WARE supplies three Flame detector types: UV, UV/IR and IR3.
How to select the best Flame detector for your Application?
A “One size fits all” approach may lead to false alarms or non-detection events. Also maintenance failures may lead to unsafe situations. It is most important to know facts about the application and select the best possible Flame detector:
