Video Smoke Detection for Waste Recycling

This video shows Smokecatcher Video Smoke Detection detecting a simulated fire at a waste recycling facility, demonstrating the incredible speed of detection which can be achieved!

This building’s roof is almost 20 meters high! If a ceiling-mounted fire detection system was in use, it could take several minutes for the smoke to reach the roof, by which time it could be too late.
If flame detection was used, it would detect nothing at this stage of a fire. Flame detectors will only detect when the incident has developed into a real fire, by which time it may be too late.

Video Smoke Detection provides the fastest detection speed, the most reliable false-alarm resistance and the best resistance to harsh operating conditions.
