Emerson’s new flame detectors line out

01 August 2016

Emersion has launched the Rosemount 975 flame detectors, a complete line of optical flame detectors designed to perform in the harshest environmental conditions and connect directly to alarm or automatic fire extinguishing systems.

The new line incorporates a variety of flame detection technologies that will provide optimal coverage for a wide range of process industries, including upstream oil and gas installations, chemical plants, and refineries, said a statement from the company.

Multi-spectrum infrared sensor technology detects hydrocarbon fuel and gas fires as well as “invisible” hydrogen fires with wide area coverage and strong false alarm immunity, it said.

Integrated ultraviolet and infrared sensor technology rapidly detects hydrocarbon-based fuel and gas fires, hydroxyl and hydrogen fires, as well as metal and inorganic fires with robust false alarm immunity, it added.

Built to be extremely durable and weather-resistant, the Rosemount 975 flame detectors feature heated windows for operation in harsh weather conditions, such as snow, ice, or condensation; broad operating temperature ranges from -67F to 185F (-55C to 85C); and multiple output options for maximum flexibility and compatibility, said a statement. The new flame detectors line is approved to safety integrity level (SIL) 2 (TÜV).
