The SST Model F130 Multi-Spectrum IR Flame Detector is a high performance and high reliability self-contained unit designed for hazardous applications. 5 Year Warranty and proudly Made in the USA.
Keywords: Multi-IR, Multi-Spectrum IR, Triple-IR, Flame Detector
The protection of onshore and offshore hydrocarbon process and handling facilities against any loss from fires requires positive and fast–responding optical flame detectors, with no tolerance for false or nuisance alarms caused by either EMI, lightning, x-rays, gamma radiation, arc welding, reflected sunlight, or any light source such as mercury or quartz iodine flood lights. Traditional UV and UV / IR flame detector sensors can be blinded by precombustion smoke, thus rendering the flame detector useless under these conditions. Also, oil mist or oil deposits on the quartz lens of a UV flame detector or combination UV/IR flame detector will seriously diminish the response to a fire. Therefore, we do not recommend using these types of flame detectors in a hydrocarbon environment.
The SST Model F130 Multi-Spectrum IR optical flame detector uses the latest state of the art processor and circuitry, eliminating the shortcomings of currently available UV/IR flame detectors which are subject to the aforementioned interferences. To insure reliable operation, the flame detector is equipped with an automatic Optical Self-Checking feature which continuously checks the optical viewing window for cleanliness and confirms operation of the flame detection circuits.
The F130 Multi-Spectrum IR Flame Detector’s electronics is housed in an aluminum powder coated explosion-proof enclosure and provides superior false alarm immunity. A stainless steel housing is also available. Electrical connections are made through a ¾ inch threaded outlet on the rear of the flame detector sensor, suitable for connection to electrical conduit or a cable gland.
The Model F130 Multi-Spectrum IR Flame Detector uses advanced multi-spectral infrared sensors which provide the highest level of flame and fire sensitivity as well as the optimal rejection of false alarms.
A bright LED indicator light signals the normal operation of the flame detector. In addition, the flame detector has a built-in Automatic Self Test program. A source of radiation is transmitted to the outside surface of the viewing window, and then passes through the window onto the IR sensor element. Should the transmission of the window be degraded, or other circuit malfunctions detected, the yellow Malfunction LED in the detector will turn on and the detector will transmit a malfunction signal.
Flame detection capability shall be provided by a Multi-Spectral flame detector. The detector shall provide a minimum 200 foot on-axis sensitivity to a standard 1 square foot n-Heptane. The detector shall not be susceptible to common false alarm sources such as lightning and arc welding, nor blinded by dense smoke or oil film on the viewing window. The sensor sensitivity response time shall be user selectable.
A comprehensive through the lens self check shall be performed periodically utilizing an integrated test source to verify that the viewing window does not need cleaning. The detector shall provide relay outputs for Alarm, Delayed Alarm, and Malfunction in addition to a 0 to 20 mA current loop capable of reporting the same conditions over a single wire.
All electronics shall be contained in a single user replaceable module which does not require field wiring or unwiring for replacement.
The detector housing shall be waterproof, explosion proof and corrosion resistant. The detector shall be classified as to explosion and fire hazard by Underwriter’s Laboratories, and certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres per CENELEC requirements. Safety Systems Technology Model F130 Multi-Spectrum IR Flame Detector, or approved equivalent, shall be supplied.
