Representing a significant development in flame detector technology, the new Draeger Flame 5000 is a reliable, explosion-proof, colour imaging based CCTV flame detector.
Designed as a stand-alone system and housed within a single unit, it combines colour imaging with digital signal processing and software algorithms to process live video images and interpret the characteristics of a flame. Ideal for use in oil and gas installations as well as chemical and pharmaceuticals plants, it can also be used throughout industry wherever a potential fire source exists.
Unlike traditional radiation, or combined radiation and CCTV flame detectors, the state-of-the-art Flame 5000 uses the camera to detect the flame and, as a result, can virtually eliminate false alarms. Also offering improved detection capabilities, it can be used to provide live video images, or can be fully integrated with a control system or fire panel to provide fault and fire signalling using normal 0-20mA or relay outputs.
As well as the surveillance benefits, this obviously removes the need to despatch operators to investigate alarms, and reduces the risk of injury whilst improving response time to around four seconds.
