Aug 18 2016 Read 653 Times

Emerson (USA) recently announced the release of 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.

“When you’re concerned with protecting lives and the future of your operations, you need an optimum solution for each facility and location,” said Lara Kauchak, vice president and general manager for flame and gas detection, Emerson. “We believe this comprehensive new line of flame detectors provides the reliability and functionality to meet all of our customers’ flame detection coverage needs.”

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. 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. 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.

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 -67 F to 185 F (-55 C to 85 C); and multiple output options for maximum flexibility and compatibility. The Rosemount 975 line is approved to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 (TÜV). The detectors can even be tested in-field with a specially designed flame simulator at distances of up to 40 feet (12 metres) from the detector, eliminating the need for personnel to stand on scaffolding or supports to access the detector.
