Integrated Spark and Fire Extinguishing Systems

Offer Protection for Planers and Moulders

BS7 Planer Protection

By means of a GreCon early fire detection, combined with automatic extinguishment systems, this risk of fire can be effectively met. Besides spark extinguishment within the exhaust pipes, a water extinguishment, which stands out due to minimum water consumption due to a new water spray technique, is also used in the planer cabin or in the covering hoods of the planer or in the bottom engine bed. 

An optical sensor is installed underneath each roller and conveyor roller. This optical sensor monitors the interior space of the planer and activates suitable water extinguishing devices. If an adjustable danger threshold is exceeded, adjoining extinguishing devices are also activated.

The tool positions are exhausted. Spark detectors are positioned in the central exhaust pipe. Upon detection of sparks, water extinguishing devices for pipe systems are activated to protect downstream filters. If an adjustable danger threshold is exceeded, a shut-down of the planer and possibly the fan of the filter is compulsory. Water extinguishing devices are activated according to the application.
