Detect-A-Fire

DETECT-A-FIRE® HEAT DETECTORS
Rate compensated and easy to install, the Detect-a-Fire is a heat detector designed for corrosive and high-humidity environments...

 

Rate-compensated for quicker response. Rugged outer shell, easy-to-install coupling and wire leads. Self resetting and intrinsically safe with listed barriers. Explosion-proof and hermetically sealed, designed for corrosive and high temperature/humidity environments. Rated 140°F - 725°F.

Technical Specifications:
DETECT-A-FIRE units are the "heart" of many Fire Protection Systems. These highly reliable devices have been a standard of the industry for over 45 years. Many thousands of these units are now in use controlling the release of extinguishants such as clean agents, C02, water, or dry chemicals. In some systems the device is used as an ALARM device, to sense overheat or fire, and alert personnel. In other systems, it is used as a RELEASE device, to sense fire and actuate fire attack systems.

DETECT-A-FIRE units have met with wide acceptance because they are designed with RATE COMPENSATION. This provides a unique advantage over both fixed temperature and rate-of-rise types of detectors because only the DETECT-A-FIRE unit accurately senses the surrounding air temperature regardless of the fire growth rate. At precisely the predetermined danger point, the system is activated.
Fixed temperature detectors must be completely heated to alarm temperature and therefore a disastrous lag in time may occur with a fast rate fire. Rate-of-rise devices, on the other hand, are triggered by the rate of increase in ambient temperature and are subject to false alarms caused by harmless, transient thermal gradients such as the rush of warm air from process ovens.

 

HORIZONTAL DETECT-A-FIRE-UNITS
 

Horizontal detectors are designed for locations where appearance is a factor. The attractive, functional design lends physical protection of the unit while making it suitable for commercial, industrial, mercantile and public buildings, institutions and ships in non-hazardous locations (those classified as "ordinary" under the National Electric Code). Flush mounted units are designed to fit standard 4" octagonal electrical boxes and surface mounting units are designed to mount directly on ceilings or on 4" electrical junction boxes. Canadian Electrical Codes requires mounting only to an electrical junction box.

   

VERTICAL DETECT-A-FIRE-UNITS
 

Vertical detectors are designed for use in both "ordinary" or "hazardous" locations. For "ordinary" use, they may be mounted to any approved junction box with 7/8" diameter opening by using 1/2-14 NPT mounting nuts. The device may be wired in or out of conduit, depending on local preference and codes. Four leadwires are provided on normally open vertical units (that close on temperature rise), per UL requirement, to facilitate supervision of system wiring. Instruments are Underwriters Laboratory and Underwriters Laboratory of Canada listed and Factory Mutual approved for hazardous locations, when mounted in a suitable fitting.
