Praetorian Fiber Optic Sensing System developed by Hawk Measurement Systems has the ability to detect conveyor fires, reports in real-time and can monitor up to 50 miles
a truck filled with cardboard caught fire inside the Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnel in CO. What could have ended up being a major disaster was resolved in three hours. Thanks to the fiber-optic fire detection system there were no casualties nor damage to the tunnel structure
FOSA released a brief primer entitled Cable Installation Considerations for Fire Detection. The document contains guidance on specific requirements of fire detection in tunnels, large buildings, industrial sites and large equipment.
AP Sensing provided its reliable Linear Heat Detection solution to monitor surface and coal reclaim tunnel conveyors at the Bulga Coal Handling Plant, Australia.
Mine Ventilation Society of South Africa study concludes that using the LIOS Linear Heat Detector LHD3 series will greatly improve safety for life and assets.
