Spark and ember generation is a constant danger in production facilities where combustible materials are being worked, processed, transported, dried, filtered or exhausted. Insurance companies statistics show silos, dust collection filters, bins and even complete production lines are the areas of greatest risk.
Reduce your risk of fires and dust explosions in equipment, pneumatic conveying, and storage systems by extinguishing sparks before they reach the filter, dust collectors, or silos! Sensors detect spark’s infrared radiation and trigger the console to automatically activate programmable countermeasures: extinguishment, deluge, abort, etc. The system immediately releases a fine mist of water downstream, extinguishing sparks without interrupting production; greatly reduces risk of personnel injury, equipment damage, and downtime.
