CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, PA, July 20, 2021 – Process, safety and plant engineers responsible for protecting their facilities from flame hazards will want to register for a live demonstration at the MSA Detection Experience Center to see how MSA’s sophisticated flame detectors respond in real-time to a variety of industrial fire types and false alarm sources.
MSA is the global leader in industrial process gas and flame detection, including its General Monitors brand of advanced flame detectors. MSA is one of the few suppliers of fixed gas and flame detection (FGFD) measurement technologies that develops and manufactures a full range of products and integrates them into safety solutions.
MSA’s Detection Experience Center provides a live, informative flame monitoring technology demonstration experience to those responsible for gas and flame safety. These demonstrations reflect the most common, dangerous hazards encountered in a wide range of industries: aerospace, chemicals, electric power, food/beverage, oil/gas production, petrochemical refining, pharmaceuticals, and others.
This virtual event is conducted by MSA safety experts and presents a variety of helpful topics, such as how to review a facility for potential hazards, evaluating in-place flame monitoring equipment, flame sensing technologies and best practices. Other topics include standard fuel types, testing detectors, nuisance alarms, detector field-of-view and distance.
The MSA General Monitors brand flame detection products featured in the seminar include:
FL500 UV/IR Flame Detector
The FL500 UV/IR Flame Detector delivers high speed flame detection with increased false alarm immunity in a compact design. The FL500 UV/IR Flame Detector monitors for radiation emitted by a flame in both the ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) spectral ranges.
FL500-H2 UV/IR Flame Detector
The FL500-H2 UV/IR Flame Detector is a modified version of the FL500 designed specifically to detect hard-to-see hydrogen flames. UV/IR flame detectors provide a fast response time with increased false alarm immunity against radiation sources.
FL4000H Multi-Spectrum IR Flame Detector
The FL4000H is a multi-spectrum infrared (MSIR) flame detector with superior false alarm immunity and a wide field of view. The FL4000H employs a multi-spectral optical IR sensing array with a Neural Network Technology (NNT) system to discriminate between actual flames and the vast majority of false alarm sources. The FL4000H detects typical fires such as alcohol, n-heptane, gasoline, jet fuels and hydrocarbons.
There is no cost for this informative live virtual event and demonstration, which is offered bi-weekly based on availability. The event can be customized for company groups upon advance request. In addition, MSA fixed gas detection products are also available for customer site demonstration and testing on request.
