Significant technical advancements have improved the baseline performance of optical flame detectors in both sensitivity and intelligence. However, it remains incumbent upon end-users to ensure due diligence is followed in properly analyzing the onsite fire hazards, selecting and modeling the coverage provided by the optimal detection technology and finally ensuring proper installation, commissioning, operation, and maintenance practices are utilized to ensure 24/7 availability. This webinar will discuss the practical aspects of selecting, placing, and managing a high performing industrial flame detection system by addressing haz-op and ignition scenario analysis and how to define a performance specification definition. Flame mapping considerations will be discussed along with false alarm source identification, and conversion of theoretical coverage models to onsite reality. Finally, a brief summary of best install, operation and maintenance practices will be covered.
- Learn about available haz-op analysis options and zone coverage identification
