Spark detection and extinguishing systems firefly
Every year, many people are injured or even killed as a result of fires and dust explosions occurring during the industrial production. The worldwide industry loses millions of dollars due to the interruptions in production resulting from fires or dust explosions.
Instead of undertaking actions that minimize the consequences of fire or dust explosion, the much better solution is to implement preventive methods that prevent the occurrence of a fire or explosion. The appropriate design of production processes, maintenance of cleanliness and efficiency of machines are the key elements. Installation of the Firefly spark detection and extinguishing system constitute another such element.
The spark detection and extinguishing system consists of a detector, which detects dangerous particles (sources of ignition) in the transported material, and extinguishing devices. When sparks/sources of ignition are detected, the extinguishing is automatically activated within milliseconds, thus eliminating the risk of a fire or dust explosion. Signals sent by the detectors, extinguishing devices and information regarding the status of system operation are collected via locally installed network hubs, in the control unit. The control unit is equipped with a 12″ colour touch screen and includes the EXIMIO system operator interface. It provides a clear, information-rich and user-friendly preview of the system components’ operation status. Handling of the control unit is intuitive and organized in a manner similar to the use of smartphones.
Installation of the Firefly spark detection and extinguishing system may save the production from costly fires and dust explosions. By combining unique and patented technology with over 40 years of experience in the industry, Firefly offers the highest quality solutions in the scope of safety, which ensure continuity of production.
