GreCon BS 7
Spark Detection & Extinguishing Systems
In many different industries where bulk materials are processed, fires and dust explosions occur again and again worldwide with far reaching consequences.
Interruptions of the production process that are caused this way lead to substantial follow up costs, quite apart from the direct damage to persons and property. With GreCon spark detection and extinguishment systems, the risks of fire can be prevented by a special technique: detection, as quick as a flash, and automatic extinguishment of the ignition energy before fire can arise.
Spark detection systems are primarily used as a fire prevention method in dust collectors and pneumatic conveying systems by detecting and extinguishing sparks and embers. When working materials, sparks are created very quickly. A dull tool, a damaged fan bearing, an over heated motor, or a foreign object within the material can be the cause. This is a constant danger for all facilities where combustible materials are being worked, exhausted, transported, filtered or dried. The damage statistics provided by insurance companies point out that filters, dust collection bins, silos and even complete production lines are the areas at greatest risk. Foreign objects in the conveyed material, defective parts of production machinery, friction processes as well as electric sparks are all identified as fire generating.
