Flame Detection

Flame Detectors operate in the harshest environmental conditions and offer a solution for virtually any application where there is a fire risk to personnel and property.

How does a flame detector work?

A flame detector is a type of sensor that can detect and respond to the presence of a flame. These detectors have the ability to identify smokeless liquid and smoke that can create open fire.

The sensors in the flame detector will detect the radiation that is sent by a flame, the photoelectric converts the radiant intensity signal of the flame to a relevant voltage signal and this signal would be processed in a single chip microcomputer and converted into a desired output.

The flame detector would respond to the detection of a flame according to its installation, it could for example sound an alarm, deactivate the fuel line, or even activate a fire suppression system.
