Detecting smoke from dust

Honeywell has developed the next-generation Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology (FAAST), which combines what it describes as “the earliest and most accurate fire detection with false alarm immunity”.

Tim Checketts, business development manager, says: “FAAST mitigates the detection issues and risks associated with fire protection in recycling plants. It uses a sophisticated three-stage filtration technique, dual-optics particle analysis and intelligent algorithms that effectively distinguish smoke from dust particles.

“This is vital in plants which are recycling large volumes of fibrerich materials such as paper.”

FAAST can withstand temperature and humidity variations because it is able to auto-learn its environment. Integral replaceable components minimise device failure and improve maintenance, which can be costly in hostile environments.
