Emerson introduces new flame detectors to help keep personnel and facilities safe
Emerson Process Management has released the Rosemount 975 flame detectors, a complete line of optical flame detectors designed to perform in harsh environmental conditions.
The new line incorporates a variety of flame detection technologies to provide coverage for a wide range of process industries, including upstream oil and gas installations, chemical plants, and refineries.
Integrated ultraviolet and multi-spectrum infrared sensor technology rapidly detects hydrocarbon-based fuel and gas fires, hydroxyl and hydrogen fires, as well as metal and inorganic fires.
Built to be durable and weather-resistant, the Rosemount 975 flame detectors feature heated windows for operation in harsh weather conditions, such as snow, ice, or condensation within a broad operating temperature range from -55°C to 85°C.
The detectors also feature multiple output options for maximum flexibility and compatibility, and the line is approved to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 2 (TÜV).
The devices can be tested in-field with a specially designed flame simulator at distances of up to 12m from the detector, eliminating the need for personnel to stand on scaffolding or supports to access the detector.
