All flames detected

Talentum dual infra-red (IR) optical flame detectors

Winters Recycling has installed eight Talentum dual infra-red (IR) optical flame detectors from FFE at its Hitchin site.

Winters Recycling has installed eight Talentum dual infra-red (IR) optical flame detectors from FFE at its Hitchin site.

Talentum detectors are suitable for waste handling because they can detect almost all types of flickering flames, not just hydrocarbon flames. By utilising IR sensing,the detectors can also identify flames irrespective of any dust, steam or smoke present, and are immune to the effects of wind or draughts.

Optical sensors receive the IR and/or UV radiation emitted by the flames and a processor analy ses the signal waveforms and determines if they represent flames and, if so, accepts them. If the signals do not match the internal algorithms for flames then they are considered to be false sources and rejected.

FFE’s equipment can detect 99% of all types of fires in a single unit, making them suitable for all types of waste handling facilities, from small, mobile compactors to large recycling facilities such as those at Winters.
