No false alarms
23 January 2013
Designed for standalone operation, the new Draeger Flame 3000 is an explosionproof flame detector. Suitable for use in fuel transport terminals, it is not affected by sunlight and, in traffic tunnels, is impervious to
The advanced image processing detector is also suitable for use in rail loading areas as the sensitivity remains unaffected by moving reflections, In addition, an automatic shutdown system can be used to extinguish all fuel type fires.
The Draeger Flame 3000 has a rectangular, pyramid shaped field of view.
Representing a radial projection of the sensing element, it extends to 110Â° horizontal and 80Â° vertical, with an increased range of 60m to an n-Helptane 0.1m2 pan fire.
Housed within a single unit and approved to ATEX, IECEx and FM, the detector combines digital signal processing with software algorithms to process and interpret the characteristics of a flame.
The image processing algorithms are so discriminating that the detector is immune to false alarms. Requiring only one detection sensitivity setting, it is unaffected by background radiation.
