A full-sized replicas of the supersonic Bloodhound car is appearing on the FFE stand at FIREX. Why? Because Bloodhound uses FFE’s Talentum UV/Dual IR flame detectors.
By utilising infra-red (IR) sensing, Talentum UV/Dual detectors can detect visible and invisible flames from virtually any source, irrespective of any dust, steam or smoke present, and are immune to the effects of wind or draughts. They also give the highest immunity to false flame sources. Also on display will be FFE’s Fireray 5000 motorised, auto-aligning optical beam smoke detector, which is ideally suited to large interiors with high ceilings, enabling coverage of a large area at minimal cost. The Fireray 5000 combines an infrared transmitter and receiver in the same unit and operates by projecting a well-defined beam to a reflective prism, which returns the beam to the receiver for analysis.
Last but not least, the company will also be showing its soon-to-be-launched explosion-proof Fireray 3000 Exd optical beam smoke detector. Designed for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, such as large enclosures in oil rigs, refineries and ordnance stores, it provides an early warning of smouldering or strongly smoke-generating fires in hazardous areas.
