Hydrogen Fire Detection

Hydrogen gas burns with an almost invisible flame and radiates very little heat, making it difficult for a worker to detect. This makes hydrogen fire very dangerous. 

The typical flame detector used in many hydrogen applications is the simple corn broom which you hold in front of you and if the broom catches fire, you stop moving forward.

The Det-Tronics X3302 is excellent for the detection of these fires and other invisible flames such as ammonia and methanol. The Det-Tronics X3302 is a multi-spectrum IR flame detector.  It is immune to the traditional false alarm sources like arc welding, lightening, grinding and x-rays from welding inspection.

The X3302 brings state-of-the-art IR flame detection to the difficult task of detecting invisible hydrogen flames. Focusing on the water-band IR emissions of hydrogen flame, the X3302 overcomes the limited detection range and false alarm tendencies of other flame detectors by employing field proven multispectrum infrared (MIR) technology.
