Hot spot detection for storage areas and conveyor belts
When storing bulk materials in closed bunkers, silos and open areas, reliable equipment is required to detect and fight fires.
Spontaneous combustion of stored materials or external entry of hot substances can cause fires that pose a high risk to operators and the environment. An effective prevention system is an early fire detection system based on an infrared camera including evaluation of the thermal images by means of software.
The infrared cameras, in compact or weatherproof housings, are aligned to the freely definable sectors of the area to be monitored and continuously measure the temperature distribution at the different positions. Due to the infrared technology, the measurement result is not influenced by smoke or dust. In the event of a fire, areas where the temperature has been exceeded are coloured red. In this way, the operator immediately recognises the location of the fire and can initiate fire-fighting measures.
