Paper/Waste/Timber Recycling

The need to increase productivity has led to the development of new machinery with higher feeding speeds. These higher speeds automatically increase the risk for a fire or explosion due to for example friction. The demand for production safety and fire prevention in the woodworking industry has therefore increased. By tailoring a fire protection system using fast IR-radiation detection and flame detection in combination with effective water spray extinguishing and water mist suppression, Firefly aims to avoid costly fires and dust explosions in the woodworking industry.

Applications

A fire in a shredder can spread very quickly. Therefore, a fast acting fire protection system that also can withstand the tough conditions in and around a shredder is required.

ShredderGuard

ShredderGuard

Frequent fires in shredders often result in production downtime and loss of revenue. A fire in a shredder can spread very quickly. Therefore, Firefly has developed Firefly ShredderGuard, a Quick Suppression System that can withstand the tough conditions in and around a shredder. The main focus of the Firefly ShredderGuard™ solution is to detect and extinguish a fire in a shredder as quickly as possible. This is why a Firefly safety system always consists of three main integrated functionalities: detection, extinguishing and control. By integrating different techniques (flame detection, True IR-detection, full-cone water spray extinguishing and water mist suppression) into one solution, Firefly provides optimal safety for the protection of shredders.

Firefly Spark Detection Systems

Firefly Spark Detection Systems

Firefly’s Spark and Hot Body Detectors are designed to detect ALL potential ignition sources such as sparks, glowing and hot particles. These detectors are insensitive to daylight minimising false alarms.

Firefly Quick Suppression System

Firefly Quick Suppression System

A complete system designed for extremely quick detection and suppression of fires can be used for spot protection of any type of high risk area and can be combined with Firefly’s unique Spark Detection System.

Firefly Fast Water Mist Systems

Firefly Fast Water Mist Systems

Firefly PowerImpact™ extinguishing is used in process ducts and chutes, it has a unique design spraying from different directions into a chute or duct utilising Full cone spray nozzles. Large water droplets for more momentum and penetration with a minimum of three water nozzles and solenoid valves per zone. Each water nozzle uses a Quick-connection and flexible hose that makes it easy to test the system without releasing water into the process

Firefly Water Mist Suppression Systems have remarkable flame suppression capabilities, utilising a small amount of water. The unique design of the hydraulic system enables a very quick system response time.

Because a fire in a belt conveyor can spread very rapidly, a fast acting fire protection system that also can withstand the tough conditions in and around a belt conveyor is required

ConveyorGuard

ConveyorGuard

FIRE PROTECTION OF CONVEYORS

A fire in a belt conveyor is often hard to extinguish and can spread very quickly. In worst case it can spread to surrounding material stacks and could last for weeks, causing major loss of revenue and production downtime.

The purpose of the Firefly ConveyorGuardTM-solution is to automatically detect and suppress a fire at an early stage and to stop the conveyor belt as quickly as possible. The Firefly ConveyorGuardTM-solution can be complemented with Firefly open area flame detectors and/or LTS cable

Gas Recycling Program

Gas Recycling Program

Once the calibration gas cylinders are relieved of pressure they are NOT considered hazardous material or waste. Nearly all of our mixtures contain only a very small amount of a hazardous chemical(s) as a minor component in the gas mixture requested. The fact that it is such a small amount (usually in the ppm range) always precludes the gas mixture from ever being classified as hazardous.

Our EcoSmart cylinder program is an environmentally-friendly way to reduce waste caused by empty cylinders. We have six EcoSmart cylinder sizes and offer a free, easy way to return used cylinders for future use.
