Triple IR Flame Detector - FlameSpec-IR3-HD

FlameSpec-IR3–HD is the next generation of the IR3. It is being introduced to further enhance the protection and safety for these high risk and high value industries.

The FlameSpec-IR3-HD will detect fires and explosions extremely fast, thus allowing preventative action to be initiated even more rapidly and minimizing the consequences!

The unmatched detection times and distances are:

  • 40ms   – for a fast fire burst or explosion

  • 1.2s         – for 1ft² (0.1m²) n-heptane pan fire at up to 50 ft. (15m)

  • <4.1s       – for 1ft² (0.1m²) n-heptane pan fire at up to 230 ft. (70m)

Integral HD quality video, with event recording, on top of the proven, superior capabilities of Triple IR (IR3) flame detection, provides a very powerful safety tool to protect personnel, plants, and processes.

The FlameSpec-IR3-HD flame detector provides ultra-fast response, high performance, and reliable detection of all types of hydrocarbon fires (visible and non-visible). The detector addresses slow-growing fires as well as fast eruption of fire using improved triple IR (IR3) technology. It operates in all weather and light conditions with the highest immunity to false alarms.

In addition, the detector provides high-definition (HD) video output of the monitored area with clear imaging of a fire event and of personnel at distances up to 100 ft (30m). This allows the rescue team to be aware of the exact situation before entering the hazardous area. The detector automatically records video of any fire event (1 minute pre- and up to 3 minutes post alarm initiation). These features, along with the built-in event logger, provide additional means to study the cause and development of fire events for “lessons learned” reviews.
