Infrared detectors sense sparks being transported through ductwork to a dust collector. The system then triggers an extinguishing device located downstream from the detectors and effectively extinguishes the spark within a fraction of a second. The short spray time results in no downtime or clean-up. The system can also be programmed to activate other extinguishing agents, alarms, abort gates and equipment shut down.
Currently in its fifth generation of development, the FLAMEX System has continually been improved to incorporate the latest advances in technology. FLAMEX is Factory Mutual approved and in thousands of installations across North America.
