Information below is included here to help you understand why using a Firefly System to protect your process and plant is the right choice.
Most cheaper spark detectors are designed to react to light from a spark and not energy level from a real dangerous hot particle. This can result in false alarms, production stop and expensive clean up afterwards.
Every year, many serious fires and explosions occur in industrial plants as a result of dust. Yes, dust. Fine inflammable material is explosive! The statistics speak for themselves. Dust explosions lead to considerable material damage and long production shutdowns.
How dangerous is your process??
How can you avoid fires & explosions??
Do you handle combustible material (e.g. combustible dust)?
If so some aspects need to be taken into consideration:
With the highest expertise on fire and dust explosions, we can provide you with a fast and reliable protection systems of the highest technical standard. With a unique patented technology based on Infrared (IR) radiation Firefly is able to eliminate both sparks and hot particles in your process.
An explosion will only occur when three basic conditions are present:
Oxygen / Air
Sources of ignition
Remove any of these three basic conditions and an explosion will not occur
Harmless extinguishing is essential. Firefly’s philosophy is that extinguishing itself must not cause problems. Even though our systems are fully automatic, an operator has the ability to manually activate a system.
Different applications and problems of fire require totally different types of extinguishing methods.
We are proud to announce that Firefly AB, as the only company in the world, is FM approved for spark detection/extinguishing system with spark detectors detecting hot particles down to ≥250°C (≥482 °F) and for spark detectors detecting down to ≥400°C (752 °F).
Firefly systems have been in use in Australia and New Zealand since the 1990's. ProDetec successful cooperation with Firefly over the years have lead to the installation of numerous fire protection and explosion prevention systems at some of the largest manufacturers in Australia and New Zealand.
