Becoming green and the challenges for optical flame detection

We are all too aware of the drivers to become greener. In some cases, the introduction of new equipment and the transition to alternative fuels is bringing significant challenges for optical flame detection. This article will highlight just a few…

Flame detector selection: Part 2 – detection technologies

Part One of our flame detection guide provided some pointers for the selection of flame detectors based on the sensing technology employed. This second article sets out some design considerations for your flame detection system. Broadly speaking, these considerations fall…

Flame detector selection: Part 1 – detection technologies

This is the first of a two-part article where we provide pointers for flame detector selection, based on the detection technologies used and application. For decades, radiant energy-sensing flame detectors have been applied as optical fire detectors for industrial and…
