Fire Protection Solutions for Sawmills
Firefly PlanerGuard™ - Fire Protection of High Speed Planer
Planing at high speeds leads to an increase in friction heat, making the process vulnerable to fire. Firefly’s Quick Suppression System PlanerGuard™ solution for high speed planers focuses on detecting ignition sources at an early stage. Non-invasive water mist suppression is used to quickly and effectively suppress the fire with the aim to avoid costly downtime and damage to the planer.
Firefly PlanerGuard™ - Fire Protection of Open Planer
In many cases, large amounts of shavings are accumulated in and around the open planer. When ignited, these shavings can cause rapid fires resulting in considerable damage. Firefly’s PlanerGuard™ solution for open planers monitors the machine by using flame detectors installed local to the area. Non-invasive water mist suppression aims at quick and effective suppression of the fire, even in the closed areas of an open planer.
Firefly PlanerGuard™ - Fire Protection of Moulder
A moulder is often installed in a production area adjacent to other machinery. The consequences of a fire in a moulder can therefore be extensive and cause damage to surrounding equipment. Firefly’s PlanerGuard™ solution for moulders detects sparks or incipient fire at a very early stage. Non-invasive water mist suppression aims at quick and effective suppression of the fire, even in the closed areas of a moulder.
The fine dust generated by a sanding machine can, when ignited, give rise to severe dust explosions and rapid spread of fire. Firefly’s SanderGuard™ system solution is designed for all types of sanders. Firefly’s SanderGuard™ system solution includes quick flame detection inside the sanding machine and water mist suppression, providing optimal protection of this important link in the production chain.
