The Det-Tronics optical flame detection and releasing system is designed for the unique demands of ultra-high-speed applications such as munitions and other energetic materials manufacturing. Installing a listed system like that offered by Det-Tronics is the best way for manufacturers to comply with industry codes. These industry codes include:
Unified Facilities Criteria – UFC 3-600-01 Fire Protection Engineering for Facilities
National Fire Protection Association – NFPA 15 Standard for Water Spray Fixed Systems for Fire Protection; and NFPA 72® National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code
It starts with the right detector
In order to meet overall system response time requirements of these codes, it is important to select the optical flame detection technology that best matches the characteristics of the particular material of interest. The flame detection and releasing system must be capable of detecting an event and providing a signal to the deluge system. The deluge system must respond in no more than 100 milliseconds (ms) from the presentation of an energy source at the detector to flow of water from the water spray nozzle.
