Dräger Flame 5000 explosion-proof Flame Detector

The Dräger Flame 5000 is an imaging based explosion-proof Flame Detector. This Draeger visual Flame Detector uses digital image processing and advanced algorithms to process and interpret flame characteristics. This principle offers an extended field of view and fewer false alarms. Each Detector is equipped with a color CCTV camera.

Immunity against false alarms
The unique software algorithm of the Dräger Flame 5000 is capable of discriminating between genuine fire conditions and other radiant sources that may cause conventional detectors to become desensitized or produce unwanted alarms. This Draeger visual Flame Detector is immune to common sources of unwanted alarms such as welding work, hot CO2 emissions and flare reflections.

Maximum field of view
The Dräger Flame 5000 Flame Detector can detect n-heptane fires of 0.1 m2 (1 ft²) or greater at a distance of 44 m (144 ft) within a 90° horizontal and 65° vertical field of view. The detector’s field of view is a rectangular pyramid shape. This gives it one of the greatest standard coverage area and range of any Flame Detector currently available.

Flexible operation
The Dräger Flame 5000 operates as a stand-alone unit to transmit live video recordings or can be connected to a control system or a fire panel to provide fault and fire signalling. This is achieved using a 0 to 20 mA signal or relay outputs. An integrated memory card enables this Dräger Flame Detector to record videos before and after alarm events. Depending on the environmental conditions you can choose between an aluminium or a stainless steel housing.

Safe and fast intervention
Live video provides instant visual verification of a fire alarm without the operator having to enter a dangerous area. This reduces the risk of injury and improves response time. An optical verification facility checks the window for contamination and ensures its field of view is not compromised by obstructions placed immediately in front of the Flame Detector.

Functional test
The Dräger FS-5000 Flame Simulator tests Dräger Flame Detectors at distances up to 8 meters (22 ft). With reduced need for scaffold or ladders to access the detector, maintenance costs can be decreased.

Easy to install and use
The Dräger Flame 5000 Flame Detector is very easy to install using a mounting bracket of stainless steel. The swiveling mounting bracket ensures that the device is optimally aimed towards potential sources of fire. The device status is displayed to nearby workers by tri-colored LED light.
