Fire prevention for the metal industry

In the metal industry, high temperatures and spark flight are inevitable. During production and processing, overheated parts and smouldering fire can occur which can cause fire or explosions. A special GreCon spark detection and extinguishment system significantly increases the safety and protection of the production facilities. It detects sparks in time and automatically extinguishes them – and has done so successfully for more than 40 years.

Danger zones of metal productions

  • Core removal
  • Press
  • Filter
  • Sand recycling

The right solution

  • When  processing  metal, there is a risk of fire in the extraction systems and filters. The metal dust that deposits there can ignite by exothermic reactions. This is a challenge that requires special spark extinguishing systems.  However, sparks or overheated parts can also be caused in other plant areas by high temperatures, defective machines or foreign bodies.

    • Injury and loss of human life
