Draeger launch flame detector for chemical sector
With high risk processes and flammable chemicals, sophisticated flame detection is one of the highest priorities in the chemical and petrochemical industries; and with the new Flame 3000, Draeger Safety UK are helping keep workers protected round the clock.
The new Dräger Flame 3000 is a highly advanced explosion-proof image processing flame detector. It has been designed for standalone operation and can also be integrated with a control system or fire panel, offering a reliable solution to flame detection, as well as a high level of false alarm immunity. The Flame 3000 and existing Flame 5000 are suitable for use in hazardous environments such as refineries, chemical and pharmaceutical plants since the sensitivity is not affected by reflections. Impervious to CO2 emissions along with hot gases and equipment, the flame detection system can be installed in any industrial situation where a potential fire source exists.
Chris Baldwin, Product Manager, Draeger Fire & Gas Systems, said: “In the chemical and petrochemical industries there is no room for error. Our flame detection solutions are designed to mitigate against false alarms, with sophisticated technology that warns you only when there is a real incident to deal with, thus saving precious time and money.\"
“Our new Flame 3000 and wider flame detection range,\" he continued, \"can easily be calibrated to work in conjunction with existing control systems or fire panelling, able to activate deluge systems, beacons and sounders...The system is able to utilise advanced technology combining digital signal processing with software algorithms to process and interpret the characteristics of flame, discriminating between genuine fire conditions and other radiant sources that may produce unwanted false alarms. The Flame 3000 is unaffected by the background radiation found in many industrial environments, making it an essential piece of equipment for the chemical industry.\"
