A flame detector is a device that detects the presence of a flame due to combustion. It detects the flame by optical sensing, ionization, or by heat detection means, and often forms part of a system of active fire protection used in fire alarm systems and in applications where the presence of a flame, such as a pilot light is necessary for operational safety.
Our Infrared (IR) flame detectors work within the infrared spectral band. Hot gases emit specific spectral patterns in the infrared region, which can be sensed using a specialized thermal imaging camera (TIC) for fire-fighting, a type of thermographic camera. False alarms can be caused by other hot surfaces and background thermal radiation in the area, as well as blinding from water and solar energy. A typical frequency in which a single frequency IR flame detector is sensitive lies within the 4.4 micrometer range. Typical response time is 3–5 seconds.
