Draeger At Firex North
23 January 2013
Featuring the latest in CCTV flame detectors, Draeger will be focussing on fixed gas detection systems and the use of infra-red (IR) sensor technology to reduce maintenance and calibration intervals at Firex North 27th
Visitors to Stand B20 will also be able to find out more about Draeger's solution to fire and gas detection integration. Using leading edge technology products that meet ATEX and other legislative requirements, Draeger's high end systems fully integrate with existing plant and are designed to meet physical constraints as well as the operating budget.
A significant development in flame detector technology, the Draeger Flame 5000 is certified as SIL 2 capable and is suitable for use as part of a functional safety system.
Reliable and rugged, the colour imaging based CCTV flame detector is also explosion-proof. Designed as a standalone system housed in a single unit, it combines colour imaging with digital signal processing and software algorithms to process live video images and interpret the characteristics of a flame.
Unlike traditional radiation, or combined radiation and CCTV flame detectors, the Flame 5000 uses the camera to detect the flame and, as a result, eliminates false alarms. Simple to install with a stainless steel mounting bracket that can be rotated for optimum positioning, it can detect fires of 0.1m2 or more, at 44m within a 90Â° horizontal field of view.
