Fire Protection in the Particle Board Industry

High-risk areas in a particle board factory are dryer(s), dryer cyclones, screens, mills, wind sifters, silos, line extraction, sanding/saws as well as the press. Dangerous sparks and hot particles can be generated in the process which can lead to loss of revenue and/or human life as well as major damage to the production line and machinery. Firefly offers many Spark Detection and Quick Suppression solutions for the particle board industry.

By tailoring a fire protection system using fast IR-radiation detection and flame detection in combination with effective water spray extinguishing and water mist suppression, Firefly aims to avoid costly fires and dust explosions in particle board factories.

Firefly Pressguard®

It is well-known in the wood panel industry that a fire in a press spreads extremely quickly. A small flame can, in just a couple of seconds, develop into a large-scale press fire with devastating consequences/losses.


Note: All Firefly systems are tailor-made according to the design of the plant. The examples above are a general explanation on how Firefly can minimize the risk of a fire or a dust explosion in this process. For further information, please contact Firefly.
