FLAMEX Spark Detection & Extinguishing System
Available from FLAMEX, Inc.
The FLAMEX Spark Detection and Extinguishing System is a cost effective solution for the prevention of baghouse fires and explosions. It identifies and extinguishes a spark in a pneumatic duct within a fraction of a second, preventing the spark from entering filtration units and storage bins where violent explosions and fires can occur.
Infrared detectors sense sparks being transported through ductwork to a dust collector. The system then triggers an extinguishing device located downstream from the detectors and effectively extinguishes the spark within a fraction of a second. The short spray time results in no downtime or clean-up. The system can also be programmed to activate other extinguishing agents, alarms, abort gates and initiate equipment shut down.
Currently in its fifth generation of development, the FLAMEX System has continually been improved to incorporate the latest advances in technology. FLAMEX is Factory Mutual approved and has been installed in thousands of locations across North America.
