watch>>>Detecting Hydrogen Fires - Learn How in Under 5 Minutes

X3302 Multispectrum Infrared Hydrogen Flame Detector is certified as Safety Integrity Level 2 (SIL 2) capable by exida, a globally-recognized certification agency. Det-Tronics is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
The X3302 Hydrogen Flame Detector, with field proven multi-spectrum infrared technology, meets each requirement of IEC 61508 and now with SIL 2 capability can be used in extreme hazard applications that pose a high risk of hydrogen fire, including refineries, chemical loading, battery rooms, compressor areas, and gas plants. Engineers and system designers can incorporate X3302 Hydrogen Flame Detectors into their SIL 2 system design to protect people and property against fire hazards.
“SIL 2 compliance indicates high reliability in extreme hazard environments,” said Charles Hoff, product manager, Det-Tronics. “The X3302 Hydrogen Flame Detector is fit for protecting environments that may pose high risk to personnel and where fire may cause a large amount of property damage.”
In addition to SIL 2 compliance, Det-Tronics introduced additional sensitivity modes on the X3302 Hydrogen Flame Detector. These sensitivity modes will help optimize the X3302 Hydrogen Flame Detector for specific applications based on fire size and distance to ensure reliable hydrogen flame detection.

Flame Applications and Products

Detector Electronics' flame detectors are solutions for applications in which risk to personnel is high and where fire might result in a large loss of equipment.  Beyond critical life-safety concerns, our products have proven to minimize total cost of ownership while minimizing false alarms.

Our industrial and commercial applications include oil and gas pipelines, turbine enclosures, off-shore platforms, Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels, automotive-manufacturing facilities, aircraft hangers, nuclear facilities, hydrogen-filling stations, and munition plants.

Bottom line -- no other company offers more flame-detection technologies with wider area coverage, higher false-alarm immunity, reduced response times, and the appropriate global approvals. And to improve ease of use, all X-Series flame detectors have HART-protocol options.

Detector Electronics Corporation (Det-Tronics) is a global leader in industrial hazard safety solutions, providing flame detection, gas detection, and hazard mitigation systems for critical industrial applications. We design, build, test, and commission SIL 2 flame and gas safety systems that range from conventional panels to fault-tolerant, addressable systems. Our flame and gas detectors are globally certified to the latest product approval standards.
