MSA & General Monitors Hydrogen Flame Detectors includes:
- MSA FlameGard® 5 UV/IR-H2 Flame Detector
- GMI FL3100H-H2 UV/IR Flame Detector for Hydrogen Applications
The precision-crafted MSA FlameGard® 5 UV/IR-H2 Flame Detector monitors the ultraviolet and infrared spectral ranges to detect unwanted hydrogen fires. Its meticulous engineering and usage of UV and IR make it highly immune to false alarms caused by lightning, arc welding, hot objects and other sources of radiation. The unit’s continuous Optical Path Monitoring (COPM) checks both the optical path integrity and the detector’s electronic circuitry once a minute, while the wide field of view enables greater fire detection coverage.
The FL3100H-Hydrogen is an Ultraviolet / Infrared flame detector designed specifically to detect hydrogen (H2) fires and provide alarm outputs directly from the detector while maintaining false alarm immunity. It detects H2 fires by monitoring in both the ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) spectral ranges, making it highly immune to false alarms. Configurations with dual Modbus and HART are available. Modbus and HART data can be used for predictive maintenance. The flame detector’s electronics are integral within its explosion-proof housing, allowing detector information to be processed at the point of detection.
