A flame-detection system with ultra-high-speed response

By Chemical Engineering |

Det-Tronics

This company has introduced a new high-speed deluge module (HSDM) for the Eagle Quantum Premier (EQP) fire- and gas-safety controller (photo). The HSDM expands the capability of the EQP so it can activate ultra-high-speed suppression systems for high-hazard applications. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard for Water Spray Fixed Systems for Fire Protection (NFPA 15), ultra-high-speed detection and releasing systems must be capable of response in 100 ms or less from the presentation of the energy source to the flow of water from the deluge nozzle. The EQP safety system is FM Approved with the HSDM, making it the industry’s only listed flame-detection and releasing system capable of ultra-high-speed response, says the manufacturer. — Det-Tronics Corp., Minneapolis, Minn.
