Flame Detection Systems

What is Flame Detection?

Flame Detection is a fire detection system that uses Infra-Red Radiation to identify the presence of a fire.  It is commonly used to protect large open areas such as warehouses, open external storage yards, and the Waste Management Industry.


  • They detect radiation with a band width of 4.4 micrometers – the specific radiation emitted by the production of carbon dioxide during hydro-carbon combustion, making them extremely reliable
  • With a range of 50m, there isn’t a delay in waiting for smoke or heat to rise to the roof
  • At a distance of 30m a flammable vapour explosion can be detected in 0.6 seconds, and an average 30cm x 30cm fire in 1.6 seconds.
  • Mounted in a solid stainless steel container for durability and long-term effectiveness
  • Fitted with connection for air-purge connection to keep the lens clean in dusty environments
  • IP66 & 68-rated against dust and water ingress, and ATEX-rated for explosive environments

Blazequel’s Solution

We provide a Triple-IR Flame Detector.  This includes 3 different sensors, one detecting 4.4 micrometer wavelengths, one a slightly smaller wavelength, and one a slightly larger wavelength.  This makes the  detector an extremely reliable solution, providing extra protection against false alarm activations.  This has been proven in the significant number of successful tests with many of the common false alarm causes, including welding, grinding and direct sunlight.

Water Mist Fire Extinguisher Video

The Water Mist Fire Extinguisher is a revolution in portable fire fighting.  It’s able to fight fires in flammable solids (Class A fires), flammable liquids (Class B fires), fires involving electrical equipment (Class E fires) and cooking fat (Class F fires).

Due to this remarkable list of fire categories, the Water Mist fire extinguisher is the only extinguisher you’ll ever need.  It can remove the requirement for having multiple different kinds of extinguisher in your workplace.

It’s also been proven at extinguishing gas fires (Class C) but there isn’t a safety listing for this category for safety reasons.  If you have a Class C fire, just evacuate and don’t risk trying to tackle it!

Using pure water, the Water Mist fire extinguisher leaves none of the residue commonly associated with fire extinguishers.

It extinguishes the fire by breaking the water into a fog of tiny droplets.  The enormous surface area created by this fog of water droplets swiftly absorbs the heat away from the fire – this breaks the ‘feedback loop’ of the fire.

Simultaneously, the water fog, and the resulting steam as the water evaporates displaces the oxygen from around the fire, smothering the flames by starving them of oxygen.
