Due to their various capabilities in wooden and furniture constructions, MDF panels (medium density fibreboard) are a derived timber product, the demand of which is growing the most worldwide. The panels are produced in large quantities on continuous pro-duction lines, running at high speeds. However, the production processes, such as the processing of the wood into chips as well as the drying, glueing and pressing of the combustible material to panels, hold various risks of fire. Sparks, glowing embers or particles, generated in different plant areas, can easily cause serious fire and explosions.
A GreCon spark detection and extinguishment sys-tem significantly increases the safety and protection of production facilities. It detects sparks in time and automatically extinguishes them-and has done so successfully for more than 40 years.
