FFE's Talentum flame detectors at the Rzeszow helicopter repair facility

Talentum flame detectors protect helicopter repair facility

  • 15 Sep 2015

A helicopter repair and overhaul facility in Rzeszow, Poland has installed FFE’s Talentum flame detectors as part of its foam extinguishing system.

Installed in the main hangar by Polish fire suppression company Gureco, the flame detectors are designed to instantly detect any type of flame. 

This is of utmost importance in helicopter repair facilities, as flames can potentially originate from many different sources, including metals. 

The detectors utilise infra-red (IR) sensing technology to detect flames within seconds, and are resistant to any dust, steam or smoke present. With the addition of an ultraviolet (UV) sensor, the detector becomes immune to flame signals such as sunlight.

Using optical sensors to receive the IR and/or UV radiation emitted by the flames, the detectors use a processor to analyse the signal waveforms and determine if they represent flames and, if so, accepts them.

If the signals do not match the internal algorithms for flames then they are considered to be false sources and rejected. 

Talentum flame detectors are the only available product of its type capable of detecting 99% of all types of fires in a single unit.
