Our solutions are not sold as individual components, only as complete systems.
Since no two applications are the same, every system is tailor-made for the particular duty.
When you are exposed to a risk of fire or dust explosion in your plant, you require a safety system to assist you in covering this risk. This is why our fire and dust explosion safefy systems are used in process industry all over Australia and New Zealand for over 25 years.
Every year, thousands of industrial plants suffer from fires and dust explosions. Whenever you produce, handle, store or transport combustible material such as for example wood, tissue or sugar, you are exposed to this risk. The result may be costly production downtime, loss of revenue or in the worst case, human injury or loss of life.
A Firefly safety system always consists of three main integrated functionalities: detection, extinguishing and control.
One of the unique features is Firefly's patented TrueDetect technology.
Firefly uses True IR detectors to detect sparks, hot particles and flames in both fall chutes and pneumatic conveying systems.
Each Firefly True IR detector is insensitive to daylight and equipped with the Multi-checkpoint technology to minimise false alarms and ensure detection quickness and reliability.
400C - The GD400 detector can be used for monitoring pneumatic conveyor systems and chutes. For protection of risk zones where material occurs in dust clouds, e.g. filters.
250C - The TD 250 detector can be used for monitoring pneumatic conveyor systems and chutes. For protection of risk zones where material occurs in layers, e.g. storage coils.
Firefly PowerImpact extinguishing and Firefly water mist are integrated parts of a Firefly System.
Firefly offers powerful full-cone extinguishing with a unique nozzle design and placement aimed to penetrate and cover the entire material flow inside a fall chute or pneumatic conveying system
In case flame suppression in or around high risk machinery is required, Firefly offers its non-invasive water mist suppression in order to provide optimal safety for machinery.
In some processes, gas is the most suitable extinguishing agent. Carbon dioxide and nitrogen are excellent extinguishing agents provided the affected section of the process can be isolated. This is done with the help of Firefly's fast acting valves withy closure times down to 50 ms.
Another extinguishing method used in the Firefly system is mechanical diversion. When an ignition source has been detected, a diverting valve is opened which rapidly re-routes the material flow out of the process flow for collection in a container. The process itself does not even have to be stopped.
