The BS&B SparkEx Spark Detection and Extinguishing System from BS&B and HMA INSTRUMENTATION has been designed specifically to be able to detect hot particles, sparks, and flame that may become the ignition source for a fire or explosion if allowed to pass through ducting and conveyors towards other materials-handling equipment.
For example, a few hot particles entering a dust collector are sufficient to trigger a dust explosion. Smouldering combustible solids conveyed into a storage silo can also become the basis of a raging fire, with potentially disastrous consequences.
The BS&B SparkEx Spark Detection and Extinguishing System from HMA INSTRUMENTATION uses infrared detectors to search for elevated temperature particles. The system operates in a continuous automatic mode, with all of its critical circuits primed to raise an immediate alarm in case of application difficulties.
