A blazing fire can have devastating consequences. It damages valuable assets, causes down-times and risks lives.A proper fire protection installation is made more complex when the area is affected by harsh environmental conditions. Industrial facilities frequently product dirt, dust, humidity and corrosive atmospheres in the production, storage or transport of goods. Conventional sensor technology often fails and tends to produce false alarms. These technologies require periodic, time-consuming maintenance effort.

AP Sensing’s unique linear heat detection solution reduces operational costs and offers maximum reliability even under severe conditions like:

  • Dirt, dust and corrosive atmospheres
  • High humidity and extreme temperature changes
  • Solvent vapors and radioactivity
  • ATEX classified areas (risk of dirt or gas explosions)

A fiber optic based DTS (Distributed Temperature Sensing) solution is unaffected by air currents and can accurately determine the size and direction of a spreading fire. No other fire detection system can withstand temperatures up to 1000 °C (1800 °F) without losing monitoring capabilities. Fire-fighting countermeasures can be used effectively before and during the fire event.

Our DTS solutions offer robust and reliable asset protection for:

  • Tunnels, metro, car parks
  • Conveyor belts
  • Cable trays and transformers
  • Bus ducts, false floors and ceilings
  • Tank farms, coal storage
  • Production areas
  • Power plants including NPP
  • Refineries and chemical plants
  • Offshore platforms
  • Warehouses and freezers
