Detect fire risks early – extinguish quickly

When storing wood waste, paper or fuels in closed bunkers and in open areas, fires can occur due to spontaneous combustion of the stored materials or external entry of hot substances.

Our certified solution for early fire detection based on an infrared camera offers greater safety for your machines, plants or storage areas. Especially in combination with our extinguishing system, which is also certified.

The infrared technology recognises fires, but also hot materials, before a fire develops. The system distinguishes between real and apparent fire risks and only triggers an alarm if there is a real danger.

Depending on your processes and the requirements of your insurance company, you can select the IR camera with the desired certification: Either according to VdS or according to the European directive for fire alarm systems EN 54-10.

For the fastest possible extinguishing, we combine the infrared camera with our VdS-certified extinguishing system.

Early fire detection for small lithium-ion battery stores

Increasingly, the handling and storage of lithium-ion batteries and accumulators is an issue for recyclers and for manufacturers who are obliged to take back accumulators. Gases and aerosols can escape from pre-damaged accumulators – signs of an imminent thermal runaway of the accumulators.

For small bearings, T&B electronic offers a smart solution for early detection. This enables the operator to start safety and damage limitation measures at an early stage.

The Fire Gas and Smoke Detection System FGSDS detects smoke as well as various fire gases long before the thermal runaway.

Freely adjustable threshold values allow the system to be adapted to the operator’s individual safety requirements.
The system is based on a special gas detector combined with smoke detection and air intake. This means that only one detector is needed to monitor the entire interior. This also simplifies installation and use: the system can simply be placed outside the warehouse.

Löschung mit Argon hat Vorteile gegenüber Kohlendioxid

Argon extinguishing with certified components

Argon extinguishing is the optimum solution if neither the machine nor the product is to be contaminated by the extinguishing process.

Argon inert gas has clear advantages over extinguishing with carbon dioxide.

Both our new GEC-1 control center and the components of our argon extinguishing systems are FM Approved – crucial for the insurance cover of your production.

This speaks in favour of argon as an extinguishing gas – in contrast to CO2:

  • Clean extinguishing: no residues in the machine
  • No danger to persons
  • Quick resumption of production after extinguishing
  • No clearance measurement necessary after extinguishing
  • Also suitable for extremely high combustion temperatures

Extinguishing with an inert gas makes sense because gas spreads directly in all directions and therefore reaches every corner of the entire interior.

This type of extinguishing is therefore generally useful for machine protection, for example in CNC machines.
Argon extinguishing is particularly suitable wherever production should not be contaminated by extinguishing – for example in the food or animal feed industry.

Patented fire protection for belt dryers

In belt dryers, there is an enormous fire risk per se: due to the high energy input for drying – in combination with the dust load and a large fire load due to the high material throughput.

In addition, sparks or embers from upstream or downstream processes can get into the belt dryer. Smouldering fires then spread rapidly in the deposits in the dryer.

Avoid production downtime or total loss – with certified fire protection from T&B.

The usual solutions for prevention and extinguishing are often too slow or only effective selectively. Leading insurers now only grant sufficient insurance cover with certified fire prevention.

For this special application, T&B has developed a protection concept for belt dryers in cooperation with VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH. Thanks to the VdS certification of the protection concept, there is now a uniform standard that is accepted by every property insurer.

This innovative patented concept combines spark detection and spark extinguishing with a water spray extinguishing system. It thus enables both the best possible prevention and the reliable extinguishing of an incipient fire in the dryer.

Ready-to-connect ignition protection system

This ready-to-connect ignition protection system from T&B is especially suitable for small extraction systems such as mobile dust extractors.

The system automatically detects and extinguishes sparks already in the extraction system before they can enter the filter and cause fires or explosions.

The new system complies with EN 16770 (Annex B), which requires an ignition protection system for fire prevention.

This smart solution for spark extinguishing in dust extractors is compact – all in one enclosure with operationg elements.
Plant owners can easily install and connect it themselves. The system is then immediately ready for use.
