Spark Detection: Where, When, Why…

Spark Detection: Where, When, Why…

Spark detection is a specialist part of the Talentum Flame Detection range. Unlike all other Talentum Flame Detectors, which are forward facing, both types of Spark Detector (Standard and Intrinsically Safe) are rear facing. This enables the Spark Detector to be used to protect ducting, pipes and other enclosed risks (such as high voltage cabinets).

Due to the fact that, as its name suggests, the Spark Detector needs to detect sparks, it is very sensitive and has a very quick response time. Unlike the other types of Talentum Flame Detector, the Spark Detector only has one sensor (in this case, one infra-red sensor). This means that whatever the Spark Detector is being used to protect, it must be enclosed as any naturally occurring infrared radiation can trigger an alarm.

The Spark Detectors have two  types of mounting bracket which allow them to be fitted to both curved and flat surfaces.

The power connections and the Fire and Fault relay outputs are the same as the Front Facing Talentum ranges.

A typical use for Spark detection is on the ducting of an industrial process which takes raw material from one part of a machine to another. If a spark is detected, both ends of the ducting can be closed down to contain the spark and prevent a fire from starting.
