The EDS EV395 Spark Detector is an electronic device suited to detect sparks in combustible materials transport pipes and channels, headed to a storing silo.
During the transporting phase, a spark, produced in the previous manifacturing stages, can be transported mixed with the materials.
If this spark is not detected and neutralized very quickly, once it arrives inside the silo, it can cause a fire or an explosion.
So the precise and quick detection of the spark, can be used to prevent great damages and dangers to both people and things and consequently to elevate the security level of the installation.
The EV395 detector is able to reveal sparks that cross its viewing range even if they have a great velocity (up to 100 km/h).
The detector is equipped with an optical head sensible to infrared radiation, that has a viewing range of more than 90 degrees (solid angle) and a suitable electronic circuit that provides the amplification and managing of the signal.
When the EV395 detector intercepts a spark it provides the powering of a relay suitable to switch on optical and acoustic alarms. Moreover a fire extinguishing system ( splinker) can be activated. For the former function it is suggested to use our EV 521 control
unit that has a great using flexibility. Spark Detection system by EDS.
