Flame Detectors

Flame detectors are sensors designed to detect and respond to the presence of a flame or fire, allowing flame detection. Responses depend on the installation, but include sounding an alarm, deactivating a fuel line (such as a propane or a natural gas line), or activating fire suppression systems.

Different applications call for different actions. In industrial furnaces, for instance, their role is to provide confirmation that the furnace is operating properly. A flame detector can often respond faster and more accurately than a smoke or heat detector due to the mechanisms it uses to detect the flame.
