Common causes of fires are heat, sparks, embers, and hot particles. These items are often the source of larger fire and explosion events. Preventive fire and explosion protection is an important measure, not only to protect production, but the company and the people working within. One of the most efficient ways to prevent fire or dust explosions is the early identification of the ignition source. Fagus GreCon the leader in Spark Detection and Extinguishing Systems for 50 years, helps eliminate early causes of fires and explosions. The system provides excellent preventive protection, as it does not wait for an actual fire or explosion to erupt. InfraRed sensors detect sparks/embers and then automatically trigger countermeasures.
