Particularly plants that are at risk of explosive dust must frequently be provided with explosion protection measures, as ignition sources are often unavoidable. In addition to electrostatic phenomena and mechanically generated functions, the most frequent ignition sources particularly include glowing embers, open flames and hot surfaces. Alongside grounding monitoring systems and spark extinguishing systems, the new detectors of the GSME and Hotspot series make an enormous contribution to increasing explosion safety. Both detectors have been developed for the early identification of combustion reactions and thermal events, which can ultimately be ignition sources for explosions.
Based on the proven GSME technology, the GSMX-P pyrolysis gas detector has been developed. The new design now also allows applications in ventilation pipes up to DN 1000. Due to its passive venturi effect, even small quantities of gases resulting from combustion can be detected in a long-term stable manner. An application after a filter / a dust collector allows both the monitoring of the filter and all machines connected to it, such as shredders, pellet presses, mills, conveyors and more.
- Explosion prevention with early detection of smouldering and developing fires.
- Highest moisture and dust resistance with unique diffusion filter technology.
- Comprehensive explosion safety concepts through the integration of the detectors into the REMBE® EXKOP® Express control system.
The well-proven multi-criteria technology on a semiconductor basis already enables foolproof early detection by the GSMX-P of all types of concealed and open glowing embers and smouldering fires in the emergent phase.The sensor elements of the detectors are protected from dust and moisture with the unique diffusion filter technology.
In contrast to conventional fire detection systems, the selection and positioning of special fire detectors is a particular challenge for industrial environments. The arrangement and alignment of the detectors should therefore be exclusively specified by specialist planners.
