FFE’s ATEX certified, explosion proof Fireray 3000 Exd optical beam smoke detectors protect wide areas (up to 1,500m2) against smoking fires in potentially explosive environments. They are designed for large enclosures within oil rigs, refineries, ordnance stores and similar premises and provide an early warning of smouldering or highly smoke-generative fires which may not be picked up by flame detectors.
Fireray detectors offer more simplified wiring, installation and maintenance than any other detection type.
The company’s intrinsically safe, flameproof Talentum flame detectors are used when fast-acting and highly accurate fire detection is essential. Using infra-red (IR) sensing technology, they can detect flames from all fuel types – from hydrocarbon fires with 4.3µm emissions through to invisible hydrogen fires – and can even detect flames through dust, steam and smoke. They are also immune to the effects of wind.
FFE’s Fireray smoke detectors and Talentum flame detectors are ideal for high value, high risk installations with potentially explosive atmospheres such as offshore platforms, onshore oil refineries, storage farms, pipelines and LPG/LNG facilities.
