Rivelatore di Scintilla_EN
The spark detector is a protection system used in the ATEX extraction systems.
Sparks move at a speed of a hundred kilometres per hour inside the pipes of the extraction system and, in a very short time, reach the silo.
The spark detector is faster than the sparks. Through the infrared sensor the detector can identify the sparks, intercepting them and putting them out. It does not require periodic inspections. It is a total supervision system: it checks that the spark has been put out, it warns in time if something is not working and it blocks the shut down system if necessary.
