Draeger Flame 5000: Making Your Process Safer and More Efficient

August 17, 2020 | Product News

The Draeger Flame 5000 detects characteristic properties of flames on the basis of a live video signal. By using Draeger’s sophisticated digital signal processing and software algorithmics –  false alarms can practically be excluded and true flame emergencies can be detected from a safe distance. 

The Flame 5000 is easy to install using a mounting bracket of stainless steel. The swiveling mount allows for the device to always be aimed towards a potential source of fire. Detection of fires of 0.1 m2 at a distance of 44m within a horizontal visual field as of 90 degrees. The detector’s field of view is a rectangular pyramid shape and represents a radial projection of the sensing element, therefore giving it the greatest coverage area of any flame detector currently available.

The detector transmits live video signals, which can also transmit alarm and status signals to a controller and fire alarm system. A 0 to 20 mA signal or relay outputs are available for this purpose. Additionally, video recordings of the time period immediately before and after a detected fire can be saved, collected and retrieved by means of a digital memory card.

The Flame 5000’s visual technology allows for instant verification of a fire alarm without the operator having to enter a dangerous area. The device status is displayed by tricolor LED light at the front of the device so that the status of the device is always clearly visible for persons working close to it. Green means normal operating conditions, the yellow LED indicates a fault and the red LED turns on if flames are detected.

The device is available with aluminum or stainless-steel housing and can be employed worldwide due to its variety of approvals: ATEX, IECEx, FM and cFM.

The Neal Systems service team can install and service all aspects of this device, as well as provide you the best complete solution for flame detection.

Contacting, Torodial, and Flow-Through Conductivity 

May 4, 2020 | Product News

You can improve process performance, reliability and reduce the cost of ownership by simply using the best in industry conductivity products. The conductivity products provided through Foxboro by Schneider Electric utilize established technologies to deliver patented solutions with capabilities that are exclusive to industry. 

There are three main conductivity products that Foxboro by Schneider Electric offers: Contacting, Torodial and Flow-Through.

Contacting Conductivity 

Contacting Conductivity measures conductivity using electrodes. Foxboro offers a family of contacting sensors for resistivity and low-level conductivity measurements. There are multiple mounting methods, including, threaded bushings, flanges, ball valve, and sanitary. 

High accuracy paired with universal bore mounting, selection of wetted materials, and compatibility with 875CR and 876CR makes these Contacting Conductivity products an optimal solution. 

Torodial Conductivity 

Torodial Conductivity uses an electrodeless conductivity sensor by using PEEK, Teflon, Polypropylene in either small or large bore designs and standard or high temperature. This product measures from single digit uS/cm to 2000 mS/cm and calibrated with precision calibration loop. 

The Torodial sensor hosts an integral automatic temperature compensation that is compatible with 876EC and 875EC. Like the Contacting Conductivity products, the toroidal has multiple mounting accessories, which ensures a perfect fit for your application. 

Flow-Through Conductivity  

The flow-through conductivity products are a family of noninvasive, flow-through and toroidal conductivity sensors for 875EC or 876EC. The flow-through conductivity offers an industrial and sanitary version with a variety of line sizes including a 0.5 inch, 1.0 inch, 1.5 inch, 2.0 inch, 3.0 inch and 4.0 inch. 

This family of products has a selection of process wetted materials and an in-line calibration with calibration plug. The flow-through conductivity installation process also eliminates bypass loops. 

These three options and the extensive knowledge of the Neal System’s team will allow for us to help you select the best product, mounting, and installation for your conductivity needs. For more information of any of the conductivity options, contact the one of our engineers here!
