Fire Protection in the Woodworking Industry
Striving to reach higher productivity in woodworking processes has led to increased efficiency and automation. A higher degree of automation demands a larger investment, and therefore production downtime will be even more costly.
The need to increase productivity has led to the development of new machinery with higher feeding speeds. These higher speeds automatically increase the risk for a fire or explosion due to for example friction. The demand for production safety and fire prevention in the woodworking industry has therefore increased.
Firefly offers several Quick Suppression solutions to protect the machines in a sawmill i.e. PlanerGuard and SanderGuard.
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 the woodworking industry.
