Base-mounted flame detectors

Apollo Firect Detectors, flame

Apollo Fire Detectors’ latest range of base-mounted flame detectors has a Class 1 performance that enables them to quickly identify 0.1 m2 flames at a distance of 25 m. They can rapidly detect all types —including those from a hydrogen source, which are invisible to the naked eye and some other flame-detection systems.

These devices are available in intelligent and conventional versions and fit into Apollo’s Discovery, XP95 and Series 65 bases. There is a choice of detection methods, including single V, UV/IR2 combined and IR3 variants.

Single UV distinguishes between flames and most other sources of radiation, as does the combined UV/IR2, which also filters out most other sources of false alarms such as arc welding and flickering sunlight. The IR3 is typically unaffected by dust, dirt and other sources of false alarms.
