Fire safety – Base-mounted flame detectors

Said to combine high performance with a compact design, Apollo Fire Detectors Ltd’s eight-strong range of base-mounted flame detectors are suitable for most land-based and marine applications.
Apollo says the devices can detect 0.1m2 flames at a distance of 25m, as well as all types of flames – including those from a hydrogen source, which are invisible to the naked eye and some alternative flame-detection systems.
Devices are available in intelligent and conventional versions, which fit into Apollo’s Discovery, XP95, or Series 65 bases. A choice of detection methods is available to suit the application, with single UV, UV/IR2 combined, and IR3 variants on offer.

Installation is made quick and easy, says the company, thanks to a special bracket and integral mounting box. Applications include aircraft hangars, recycling centres, manufacturing and chemical production plants, ships’ engine rooms, fuel-handling areas, and power generation facilities.
