ITT Controls - Flame Detection and Detectors
ITT Controls also delivers instruments for flame detection. Flame detection is the technology for detecting flames, using a flame detector. Flame detectors are optical equipment for the detection of flame phenomena of a fire. There are two categories of flame detection: Flame detector for the detection of a fire in a fire alarm system and flame scanner for monitoring the condition of a flame in a burner. A flame detector is a sensor designed to detect and respond to the presence of a flame or fire. Responses to a detected flame depend on the installation, but can include sounding an alarm, deactivating a fuel line (such as a propane or a natural gas line), and activating a fire suppression system. When used in applications such as industrial furnaces, their role is to provide confirmation that the furnace is properly lit; in these cases they take no direct action beyond notifying the operator or control system. A flame detector can often respond faster and more accurately than a smoke or heat detector due to the mechanisms it uses to detect the flame.
Flame Detectors are made by various manufacturers such as Emerson, Honeywell, Siemens and Draeger. If you need any information regarding flame detectors or flame detection please contact ITT Controls via firstname.lastname@example.org.
