The Flamex spark detection and extinguishing system is a cost-effective solution for the prevention of common baghouse fires and explosions. Applications like grinding, cutting, and drying operations can often cause sparks, which are typically the ignition source for fires and explosions in dust collectors and air filtration equipment. The Flamex system is specifically designed to address these hazards by detecting and suppressing sparks in the pneumatic ductwork before they can reach dust collectors or storage bins. Infrared detectors sense burning embers or sparks transported through ductwork to a dust collector, and an extinguishing device is then triggered to effectively extinguish the spark within a fraction of a second. The system can also be programmed to activate other extinguishing agents, alarms, abort mechanisms, or to shut down equipment.
