Spark Detection

High risk, high speed, high value processes? Spark detection is the answer!

Spark Detection
Fire Detection in UK

Spark detectors are designed to spot infrared radiation in certain frequency ranges. They’re highly effective at areas like silos or dust filters where fires could start. Spark detectors work extremely fast, finding ignition sources in just a millisecond.

How do spark detection systems work?

Process typically involves sensors strategically placed in areas where sparks are likely to occur, such as near machinery or in ductwork where materials are being transported. These sensors can detect the presence of sparks or excessive heat. Once detected, the system triggers a response, such as activating water sprays, shutting down equipment, or isolating the source of ignition. 

By quickly identifying and mitigating potential fire hazards, spark detection systems help prevent accidents, protect personnel and property, and ensure continuous operation in industrial settings.

Advantages of Spark Detection System

  • Reliable operation in extreme temperatures as low as -40ºC, with the option for insulation covers to optimize performance.
  • Sensors effectively detect ultraviolet and infrared rays, even in environments with heavy dust accumulation and other materials in transit.
  • Reduced cabling to the central unit by using signal routers
  • Accurate sensor response calibration for intricate multi-zone industrial setups, ensuring precise detection in complex plants.

When do I need a spark detection system?

Spark detection systems are essential in operations where sparks, glowing particles, or other ignition sources might enter dust filters or other plant units containing combustible materials prone to ignition. 

Without proper protection, even a small spark can:

  • Pose a threat to your personnel’s safety
  • Trigger fires or explosions
  • Interrupt production and process lines
  • Cause significant damage or destruction to assets such as machinery, inventory, and facilities.

Industries can benefit most from spark detection system

Spark detectors are ideal particularly in environments where flammable materials are present. Here are some common applications:

  • Waste Recycling Industry
  • Oil & Gas Industry
  • Chemical Plants
  • Woodworking and Sawmills
  • Metalworking Industry
  • Automotive Manufacturing
  • Agricultural Processing
  • Power Plants
  • Textile Industry
  • Printing Industry
