Safety Video: Multi-Spectrum infrared FL4000H detector distinguishes flames versus welding

Flame Detectors in Action

A new Flame Detection Video from General Monitors demonstrates how the FL4000H Multi-Spectrum Infrared Flame Detector responds to flames 210 feet away, as well as its immunity to arc welding. The FL4000H Detector leads the industry in quickly detecting flames at the furthest distance, monitors them longer, and prevents nuisance false alarms.

The Model FL4000H is an advanced multi-spectrum infrared (MSIR) flame detector designed to provide superior false alarm immunity with the widest field of view. The FL4000H employs a multi-spectral optical IR sensing array with a sophisticated Neural Network Technology (NNT) system to reliably discriminate between actual flames and the vast majority of false alarm sources (such as arc welding).

The FL4000H is designed to detect typical fires such as alcohol, n-heptane, gasoline, jet fuels and hydrocarbons. In addition, the FL4000H can see through dense smoke produced by diesel, rubber, plastics and lube oil fires.

The NNT flame discrimination algorithm classifies the output signals from the MSIR sensor array as either fire or non-fire. The MSIR/NNT combination is highly immune to false alarms caused by lightning, arc welding, hot objects, and other sources of radiation.

Smart technology ties work sites together for improved safety and communication

Automated and customized notifications can be sent to multiple users.

Site managers are always looking for ways to track operations more closely as a method of protecting their employees from potentially dangerous situations and improving efficiency. When dozens – or hundreds – of employees are moving around during their various tasks, it's virtually impossible to know where they all are or communicate when there's a need to do so.

Simplifying safety procedures during planned shutdowns

Development of safety plans surrounding confined space and other situations can be effectively developed by outsourcing safety programs to independent companies.

Planned STOs (shutdowns, turnarounds and outages) are often scheduled for preventative maintenance and new equipment installation that must be performed to keep a plant running and in regulatory compliance. To minimize production downtime, this work must be completed within a very tight time frame. As such, STOs are often feats of engineering, planning and coordination – work that begins many months, even years, before the event.
