FFE is bringing a little bit of Bloodhound to FIM Expo

A little bit of Bloodhound technology is coming to this year’s FIM Expo at Leeds Football Club on 27 April. Fire safety specialist FFE is showing its Talentum UV/Dual IR flame detectors – the same flame detectors being used in the Bloodhound supersonic car, which is aiming for a world land speed record in the coming years.

 

“Bloodhound is a prestigious and ambitious engineering project and we are delighted that our Talentum flame detection products have been selected as part of the vitally important safety system. We will follow the Bloodhound team’s progress closely as they attempt to break 1000mph,” commented FFE’s Managing Director Mark Osborne.

 

By utilising infra-red (IR) sensing, Talentum UV/Dual detectors can detect visible and invisible flames from virtually any source, irrespective of any dust, steam or smoke present, and are immune to the effects of wind or draughts. They also give the highest immunity to false flame sources.

 

Also on display will be FFE’s Fireray 5000 motorised, auto-aligning optical beam smoke detector, which is ideally suited to large interiors with high ceilings they enable coverage of a large area at minimal cost. The Fireray 5000 combines an infrared transmitter and receiver in the same unit and operates by projecting a well-defined beam to a reflective prism, which returns the beam to the receiver for analysis.

 

Last but not least, the company will also be showing its soon-to-be-launched explosion-proof Fireray 3000 Exd optical beam smoke detector. Designed for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, such as large enclosures in oil rigs, refineries and ordnance stores, it provides an early warning of smouldering or strongly smoke-generating fires in hazardous areas.  

 

About FIM Expo

FIM Expo features many of the UK's leading fire detection and alarm manufacturers and showcases the latest products and developments in this sector. According to the organisers, what makes it different from many other trade exhibitions is the informal format, regional focus and ability to see the latest from all the major fire detection manufacturers in one place.
