Fire detection systems for safety and cost effectiveness
The key to minimising loss of revenue and production downtime due to fire and/or dust explosions is the detection of hot particles. Three elements are needed to cause a fire or a dust explosion:

  • Oxygen
  • Ignition sources
  • Flammable material

Spark Detection and Hot Particles Detection Systems for Maximum Safety

Imagine a sparkler. The sparks generated from it have a high temperature but little mass. On the other hand, the hot stem of the sparkler has a lower temperature but much greater mass.

  • This means that the stem (which is effectively a hot particle), but not the sparks, can be used to light a cigarette.
  • Material in your process can in the same way ignite when it encounters a hot particle.

It is therefore vital to not only detect sparks but also hot particles within your process. For a reliable fire detection system you need more than spark detection.

Preventative Dust Explosion Systems Offering Enhanced Damage Control
Once a fire or dust explosions occur the best damage control possible is required to react:

  • Sprinklers
  • Smoke detectors
  • Explosion Vents 

The only problem is that all of these react AFTER the fire or dust explosion has already occurred. Alternatively  preventive dust explosion protection systems can react to dangerous ignition sources and extinguish them BEFORE they can cause a fire or a dust explosion.

Fire and Dust Explosion Risks
Every factory in the process industry is different. Even within the same type of business, no two factories operate alike. The risk therefore for fire or an explosion will vary from factory to factory.

  • At ProDetec we have specialised in creating tailor-made fire detection equipment that will fit your operation.
  • Our principals and suppliers have vast experience and the highest technical skills necessary to design a safe fire protection equipment for your company.

Explosion Protection for Entire Processes

ProDetec can also deliver products and accessories for explosion protection and for the protection of entire processes including:

  • Explosion vents
  • Shut off valves
  • Gate valves
Through their association with world leading manufacturers of dust explosion, protection systems and detection instruments, ProDetec can handle the design, implementation and maintenance of ready-to-operate systems for protection against explosions, especially dust explosions.
