Aviation Extinguishers - All You Need To Know

Hello and welcome to this month's blog, where this time we put the spotlight on our aviation extinguisher division.

We have nearly 40 years of expertise in the portable, mobile and fixed fire extinguisher market and our systems are on board many of the commercial and military aircraft in service today.

 

What is the life cycle and warranty for FFE extinguishers?

Vibration Switches - All you need to know

What are they?

Vibration switches are a simple protection devise that triggers an alarm or shuts down a machine if the vibration exceeds a pre-set threshold level. These devises are used for the protection of rotating and reciprocating machinery (below 300rpm) such as, compressors, pumps, turbines, motors and generators, vibrating conveyors, vertical and horizontal crushers and shakers.

Top 10 most asked questions on Flame Detectors

Welcome to this months blog, I will be answering the top 10 most asked questions about our Talentum Flame Detectors.

1.What type of flames can your Talentum detect?

Our Talentum detectors look for flames across a broad spectrum of infrared and UV light (both invisible to the naked eye). They also detect the flickering movement of a flame allowing our products to detect most flames, that are both non-hydrocarbon or hydrocarbon based.

Launching the Fireray One

Our new fire detector the Fireray One is opening an exciting new chapter in optical beam smoke detection.

Our previous range of reflective beam detectors require manual alignment, which takes on average ten minutes to set up and align. However, our new detector the Fireray One not only features motorised self-alignment (which takes 60 seconds), but several advanced features that other beam detectors do not have.

These features include:

Top 10 most asked questions on Beam Smoke Detection

Hello and welcome

We’ve been on a short break, but we are back with our monthly blog posts, where we talk anything and everything around fire safety and best practice.

In no particular order let’s get into the most frequently asked questions I get about our beam smoke detectors.

Which Beam Smoke Detector is best for you – End to End or Reflective.

Choosing the right Beam for a particular site depends on a number of criteria (which will be discussed in the Blog).

While both types of Beam technology, Reflective and End to End are equally good at detecting smoke, each type has applications to which it is more suitable than the other type.

Reflective Types:

 

Distance Sensitivity of the Talentum Flame Detector

The sensitivity of all Talentum Flame Detectors is based on the size of the flame and the distance that flame is away from the Flame Detector. 

For example, while a Flame Detector will pick up a cigarette lighter flame at 1M, the same size flame would not be detected at a distance of 8M.

How to wire to a Conventional or Addressable Fire Panel.

There are two types of Fire Panels, Conventional types which have ‘Zones’ which are connected directly to devices such as Optical Beam smoke Detectors or Flame Detectors and Analogue Addressable types which have a loop bus onto which addressable devices can be connected.
