WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO INSTALL A CONTROL LOGIC SPARK DETECTION SYSTEM
Spark detection and extinguishing system must be considered as an integral part of a plant's overall security and safety. Usually, attention to safety is paid only when it is too late. By installing a spark detection system, you can protect your work against potential loss of production and equipment. You are spending now to save your working process and your money in the future.
To detect and extinguish sparks before they reach their destination, the available time is very short since particles speed inside the conveyor is approx. 30 m/s and pipes can also be very short, sometimes less than 10 m. At 30 m/s speed, 10 m mean a third of a second.
Within this lapse of time Control Logic spark detector is able to operate, open a water jet and/or close a lock-gate.
Most of the time is absorbed by the automatic jet sprayer or the electro-pneumatic lock. But the short time available does not represent a difficulty for the detector, because its intervention time is very short, a few hundredths of a second. In pipes with diameters up to 50 cm, only one spark detector is usually installed.
In fact, in this case the maximum distance between a spark and the detector is 50 cm.
Pipes larger than 50 cm are usually equipped with two spark detectors facing one another. The use of two opposing detectors removes any "shadow" zones located at the window sides, out of the observing cone of the detector. In conclusion: Spark extinguishing systems are the most efficient way to prevent fires.
Control Logic spark detection system is the result of years of research development:
Super-easy to use maximum reliability SAFETY IS SURELY THE BEST INVESTMENT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR PLANT.
