Early Detection of Fires with the Pyrosmart Infrared Fire Detection System Interface
Intelligent automatic firefighting systems are becoming increasingly important. The hot spots of a fire can thus be detected as soon as possible in order to fight the fire and confine it. Hence, we have equipped our FT10e firefighting turbine with an interface for the PYROsmart® infrared fire detection system manufactured by Orglmeister Infrarotsysteme®, a leader in the sector.
An impressive project has just drawn to a close: we have created an interface with the latest software version of the infrared fire detection system PYROsmart® manufactured by Orglmeister Infrarotsysteme®, a leader in this sector. Standard fire alarm outputs can be used to connect the fire alarm system.
This complete package offers clients a fully automated, interactive firefighting system:
- the infrared system detects hotspots already in the initial stage, thus allowing them to be put out with the limited use of fire extinguishing agents;
- water jet with flexible geometry: the user can switch from sprinkler to direct the jet of water, or again to a variable combination of both geometries.
The system reacts in real time to changes in the hot spot. A simple and intuitive overall view is provided by a continuous flow of general infrared thermographic images, combined with pan video images. Regarding prompt and intelligent detection of fire when extensive monitoring is ensured, the complete firefighting system is designed to timely react to initial fires by automatically implementing the necessary measures.
The firefighting solution (fire detection and firefighting turbine) can be either fully automated or controlled by an operator at a workstation.
Applications for this complete innovative solution include: storage and production areas with a high risk of fire, such as recycling centres, packaging warehouses (paper, plastic materials), reactors, chemical industry, hangars, and warehouses for plastic material.
