FDS303 Multi-Spectrum IR Flame Detector
Designed for hazardous industries where fast fire detection is critical and nuisance alarms are not an option!
The MICROPACK FDS303 is an explosion-proof multi-spectrum IR flame detector. The device delivers superior performance, responding to hydrocarbon liquid fuel and gas fires at long distances.
The FDS303 has been tested by Factory Mutual to detect a hydrocarbon fuel pan fire at 60 m (~ 200 feet) in 5 seconds.
The FDS303 complements the FDS301 and FDS300 Visual Flame Detectors by delivering superior performance in the detection of hydrocarbon fires which are not detectable in the visible spectrum. The FDS303 utilises the latest IR flame detection algorithms to ensure maximum false alarm immunity.
Typical applications include:
- On/Offshore Oil and Gas Processing Facilities
- Petrochemical Plants
- Chemical Facilities
- Aircraft Hangars
- Road Tunnels
- Power Generation
- Tank Farms
- Road & Rail Loading Racks
- LNG / LPG
- Warehouses/ Storage Areas
- Waste Recycling/ Biomass Plants
- Printing Industry
