Certified detectors for fire prevention at SOLIDS
For the detection of sparks and embers as well as for the prevention of fire spreading, T&B electronic presents the detectors suitable for these risks.
In order to prevent fires and explosions in filters, conveyors, silos, coolers, mills, pellet mills or dryers comprehensively and reliably, individually customized solutions are required. Each of the fire risks in the different plant areas can only be controlled with the most suitable detector.
FSM multichannel detector
For plant areas in which both sparks and embers can form, T&B electronic GmbH is presenting its FSM multichannel detector at the trade fair in Dortmund. This detector, certified by VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH, detects both sparks and embers. Previously, a specific detector was required for each.
If this combination detector is used in areas where sparks and embers are present, the cost of installation and maintenance is reduced - with the same functionality and safety.
Plant operators can invest this saving in fire protection for downstream processes into which hot particles can be introduced. The FST-lt hot particle detector from T&B electronic is suitable for this purpose, as it can detect even moderately hot foreign bodies in production areas from a temperature of 150°C.
Useful applications are, for example, packaging in pellet production, discharge from coolers or entry into silo systems.
Another application is in recycling plants: Here, pre-damaged lithium-ion batteries can initially only develop an increased temperature, but can later ignite. This poses the risk of fire spread-ing, for example from the crusher to downstream production or storage areas. Thanks to ear-ly detection of this fire hazard with the FST-lt, plant operators can take preventive measures at an early stage.
T&B electronic GmbH will present its detectors and holistic protection concepts for the bulk solids industry at SOLIDS / Recycling-Technik 2023 in hall 7, booth U08.
