Detection System for smouldering fires under mining conveyer belts
Smouldering material near the circulating air of mining conveyer belts is always a danger. In spite of safety precautions, the risk of fire cannot be avoided completely. Therefore, it is crucial to detect and accurately pinpoint the location of any combustion at the earliest possible stage. GESO FireFinderM is a new, field-tested and fully operational system for the complete and continuous detection of smouldering fire occurring under long mining conveyer belts.
In case of a detected smouldering fire, an alarm signal is generated and an alert is sent to a constantly manned station detailing its exact location (e.g. central mine control station).
