A Bulgarian facility has selected Spectrex SharpEye 20/20MPI indoor optical flame detectors for its fire detection measures.
The plant processes plastic bottles and the new non-EX IR3 flame detectors were chosen due to the reliable IR technology.
The 20/20MPI is a compact, high-performance and low-cost Triple IR (IR3) flame detector in a lightweight polycarbonate housing. It features all the benefits of IR3 technology, in addition to long-distance detection (up to 140ft / 43m) and a high-immunity to false alarms. With its lightweight housing and low-power consumption, the IR3 detector is especially suited to indoor applications, such as airport terminals, train stations, storage areas and public buildings.
Spectrex is a technology leader in optical flame and open path gas detection (OPGD). Our patented optical UV/IR and IR3 flame detector designs, and pioneering patented Xenon Flash designs in OPGD detectors are now the standard for oil and gas projects. A wide range of flame detectors are available, from ultra-fast (msec) detection time to high-sensitivity hydrocarbon and hydrogen flame detection, alongside the equally large OPGD range that can detect hazardous gases, from flammable hydrocarbons to toxic ammonia and hydrogen sulfide.
All Spectrex products can operate in the toughest conditions, from African deserts to Alaskan waters and are fully approved to meet relevant third-party Ex hazardous area, performance and reliability standards to the wide range of application challenges worldwide.
