FLADET IH-153E Infra-Red Ember Detector


If smouldering coal or glowing embers are loaded onto a conveyor it is probable that these will be transferred to a crusher, silo or bunker.  At such places hot coal may ignite combustible dust accumulations that then leads to a full scale fire incident.  This results in loss of critical equipment, loss of production, loss of property and human lives. With the additional adverse effect this would have on the environment. Infra-red Ember Detectors provide early warning of moving “hot spots” on conveyors before they reach processing equipment and storage hoppers and initiate alarm and extinguishing actions.

Digital (LHS) & Analogue Linear Sensing

The means to locally monitor for temperature changes (rise or fall) at "point of risk" and at ANY /ALL locations along an installed length of temperature sensitive cable - regardless of environmental conditions.

Fibre Optic Linear Temperature Sensing

Line detection of temperature change and rate of rise along multi -kms lengths of small diameter fibre optic cable. It provides high performance near real time temperature Sensing and Alarm functionality with standard communication interfaces.

Proline 'Nero' Water & Moisture Detection

Rapid detection of the smallest of leaks within Industrial, Commercial Environments by a recoverable cable. Designed to provide 24 hours/day x 7 days/week continuous monitoring of areas where even the smallest of leaks can prove disastrous. Essential where undetected leakages can cause serious damage to today’s complex electrical, communications and computer networks.
