Production of wood-based boards firefly
Every year, there are hundreds of fires in the plants that manufacture wood-based boards. Production downtime and damages resulting from fires cause serious losses. All wood-based boards, regardless of the type and technology, are subject to the pressing process in a hot press. The largest number of incidents occur in such presses, which in consequence lead to the stop of production. Firefly PressGuard™ is a system that effectively prevents press fires in the production of wood-based boards.
Flame detectors are used in the surrounding area of the machine, in combination with water mist extinguishing. These unique detectors are used to detect flames, while remaining insensitive to other disturbances, such as sunlight.
Extinguishing with the use of a water mist is effective both in open areas and in places that are hard to reach, without having to worry about damage to the machine.
