Spark Detection System

February 5, 2008
Untitled Document Spark Detection System
The CC5000 spark detection system is economically suitable for small to mid-size facilities needing one, two, four, or more zones of protection. The system can reduce the risk of dust fires and explosions in pneumatic conveying systems by detecting and extinguishing sparks and embers before they reach the collection and storage equipment. A sensor detects the spark’s infrared radiation and signals the control console to trigger an atomized water spray to immediately extinguish the flare-up. Relays can be connected to PLCs for equipment shutdown or other actions. The system is Factory Mutual approved.
