Dräger Flame 3000

​The Dräger Flame 3000 is an imaging based explosion proof flame detector. This visual flame detection system uses digital image processing and advanced algorithms to process and interpret flame characteristics. This principle offers an extended field of view and fewer false alarms.

Superior False Alarm Immunity

​The unique software algorithm of the Dräger Flame 3000 is capable of discriminating between genuine fire conditions and other radiant sources that may cause conventional detectors to become desensitized or produce unwanted alarms. The detector is immune to common sources of unwanted alarms such as welding work, hot CO2 emissions and flare reflections. This makes it a great partner on your oil rig or industry plant.

Enlarged Field of View

​The Dräger Flame 3000 can detect n-heptane fires of 0.1 m2 or greater at a distance of 60 m (200 ft) within a 120° horizontal and 80° vertical field of view. The detector’s field of view is a rectangular pyramid shape. This gives it one of the greatest standard coverage area and range of any flame detector currently available.

Flexible operation

​The Dräger Flame 3000 operates as a stand-alone unit or can be connected to a control system or a fire panel to provide fault and fire signaling. This is achieved using a 0 to 20 mA signal or relay outputs.

Depending on the environmental conditions you can choose between an aluminum or a stainless steel housing.

Functional testing

​The Dräger FS-5000 flame simulator tests Dräger Flame Detectors at distances up to 8 meters (26 ft). With reduced need for scaffold or ladders to access the detector, maintenance costs can be decreased.

Easy to install and use

The detector is very easy to install using a mounting bracket of stainless steel. The swiveling mounting bracket ensures that the device is optimally aimed towards potential sources of fire. The device status is displayed to nearby workers by tri-colored LED light.
