- IP class: IP66 / NEMA 4x
- Special: Interpret flame characteristics
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
