Fire Prevention: Catch issues before they could result in smoke/fire

Fire Prevention: Catch issues before they could result in smoke/fire

Early issue detection remains important in preventing massive losses due to fire. These massive losses can be prevented if there is a properly installed and maintained fire detection system that can help to increase the survival rate while decreasing the property losses. When smoke is detected it is already too late.

What if you could detect an anomaly that could lead to fire and early enough so that you can mitigate that risk?

When looking at a fire, then it is often preceded by 2 stages that we are all familiar with

Stage 1: Anomaly phase - the ""it feels hot" phase

Stage 1 Anomaly Phase

Stage 1 is the most important stage to monitor. Why? Because this stage typically gives you ample time to react and fix the problem before it results into a catastrophic event.

Fires could be have multiple origins like UPS issues, short-circuits, electrical overloads, water, corrosion, earthing/grounding. All those risks are unmonitored. Yet they only cost a fraction of the fire detection and suppression system.

Stage 2: Gas venting phase - the "it smells funny" phase: Off-Gas detection from smoldering to overheating components

Smoke sensors are deployed to monitor for fires and try to catch them quickly.

Prior to smoke and fire, there might be a release of gasses. The type of gas depends on the type of equipment that has an abnormality.

Using a gas sensor abnormal gasses can be sensed to trigger an alert before actual smoke is detected by the fire safety system.

An example are batteries. Lead acid batteries may release Hydrogen gas. H2 at more than 4% reaches the LEL and may become explosive. For Li-ion batteries CO2 and other gas sensors can be used.

Stage 2 Gas Venting Phase

Current fire systems will try to limit damage. It's about early detecting to try to avoid damage with the right sensors.

The Infrasensing Sensor Platform is the only solution on the market that enables you with the right sensors to detect most Stage 1 anomalies and Stage 2 gas events.

The sensors do not replace fire safety systems. They complement them. The sensor system has to be completed with adequate monitoring, alerting, operational procedures to mitigate the risks and safeguard the infrastructure.

For critical systems, redundancy of monitoring should be implemented.
