Fire and Explosion Prevention for the Metal Industry

Spark Detection & Extinguishing Systems offer safety for your metal products production

High temperatures and sparks are inevitable in the metal industry. During production and processing, overheated parts and smoldering fire can occur which can cause uncontroled fires or explosions. Pipe fires are frequent in automobile and metal working industries.

When processing metal, there is a risk of fire in the extraction systems and filters. The metal dust that deposits there can ignite by exothermic reactions. This is a challenge that requires special spark extinguishing systems. However, sparks or overheated parts can also be caused in other plant areas by high temperatures, defective machines or foreign objects.



Zones at risk in the metal production

Fire or explosions in metal production can damage or even destroy the plant. GreCon spark detection and extinguishing system monitors and protects the following areas at risk:

  • Foundry
  • Drum
  • Press
  • Welding
  • Polishing
  • Hardening
  • Core removal
  • Sand recycling
  • Conveyor
  • Filter
