Fire Protection Within the Recycling Industry
When inflammable material is crushed, conveyed and stored, the risk of fire increases. The use of renewable sources of energy increases this risk, as these materials usually are dry and need only low ignition energy to ignite. Common materials handled are wooden pellets, peat and agricultural waste. Another energy source is domestic refuse which can be highly inflammable!
Firefly offers fire protection that detects and extinguish sparks/hot particles and flames in risk areas using fast IR-sensors together with water spray or water mist to extinguish.
