Spectrex has announced the launch of its next-generation SharpEye 40/40D and C series flame detectors that provide optimum protection against hydrocarbon-based fuel and gas fires, hydroxyl and hydrogen fires, and metal and inorganic fires. The new detectors provide early warning of fires at long distances in record time and with high immunity to false alarms.

Featuring new QuadSense™ technology with enhanced performance, the SharpEye 40/40D offers the longest distance detection of hydrocarbon fires at up to 90 metres in under 50 milliseconds with unparalleled reliability.

“The first step to battling a blaze is to quickly recognise it is happening while avoiding false alarms. The enhanced SharpEye fire detectors minimise immediate fire consequences by decreasing fire size as well as the risk to personnel, the environment, and facilities,” says Emil Cohen, Spectrex Senior Product & Customer Support Manager. “As the industry leaders, we are very proud that the 40/40D and C series continue Spectrex’s tradition of providing innovative, field-proven products that are used throughout the world.”

The new series can be used in a variety of industries and applications, including oil and gas installations and pipelines, petrochemical and chemical plants, storage tank farms, power generation facilities, fuel and gas processing and storage facilities, refinery hydrogenation, fertiliser plants, transportation, waste management facilities, pharmaceutical industry, hazardous materials storage areas, food processing, vehicle battery charging stations, hydroxyl production and storage, aerospace industry, explosives and munitions.

With an improved design, the SharpEye 40/40D and C are easy to install and maintain and come with universal wiring and multiple output options for maximum flexibility and compatibility. Ensuring flawless operation, Spectrex’s next-generation detectors offer top protection for people and property.
