When working biomass materials, sparks are created very quickly and can ignite dust into an explosion and fire that can injure personnel, damage equipment, and cause production downtime. Prevention is safer and the less costly method of mitigating these hazards. These spark detection and extinguishing systems detect sparks and extinguish them before the filter. They detect heat build up in silos, bag houses, and storage bins outlined in NFPA 69, 654, and 664 standards. Systems are Factory Mutual approved.
