Industries | Fire Prevention with Non-Contact Temperature Measurement

Avert Irreparable Damage

Early fire detection with infrared cameras and infrared thermometers is an important protective measure in the industry designed to avert irreparable damage in industrial plants and buildings.

Hence surfaces can be observed 24/7 and protective measures can automatically be introduced via process technology.

Using the flexible IRISvisual software, the parameters, for example such as the temperature thresholds, can be adjusted very simply. If the multi-stage temperature thresholds are exceeded, the system automatically triggers the corresponding alarm.

Early Fire Detection and Quality Control

When it comes to fire prevention, speed is of the essence. The use of early fire detection systems is becoming more and more important and is attracting a lot of attention. Especially in industrial and recycling plants these systems have become an important safety standard. The infrared cameras from Optris are very popular for the use of early fire detection systems and contribute with useful accessories to continuously increase the user-friendliness and effectiveness of such systems.

Fire Prevention in Garbage Bunkers

Waste recycling produces heat at the first collection point, the refuse bunker, which can cause a fire. To avert this hazard, bunkers can be monitored with an infrared camera end-to-end system.

Infrared Cameras Monitor Planing Systems - from Fire Protection to Quality Control

At the Austrian company Binderholz GmbH, various products are machined using the latest generation of planing machines. If parts on these types of machines become too hot, in the worst case this could lead to the shavings igniting and resulting in a fire. Optris infrared cameras detect overheated parts immediately thereby removing the risk of fire effectively. But in this application, the infrared technology also provides additional benefits: Burns on the wood caused by excessive pressure are minimized.
