Fire prevention in biomass plants stores and silos

News & Insights


Biomass fuels storage

Biomass fuels are stored in large piles or silos which represents a risk of fire because of spontaneous heating and combustion.

Reducing the likelihood and frequency of fire at biomass plants is critical for the safety of the personnel and the infrastructure.


FireTIR for early fire detection in biomass plants stores and silos

The early fire detection system FireTIR allows real time detection of fire hazards before a fire breaks out, measuring and monitoring the temperature distribution in the biomass plant store or silo.

The system is able to capture the temperature distribution of the warehouse in milliseconds, with automatic detection of hot spots.


Cutting edge technology

Based in radiometric infrared cameras, FireTIR is a modular and flexible system for early fire detection and temperature monitoring of warehouses and industrial plants (indoor and on open-air grounds). The FireTIR system cameras are protected by rugged protective housings to withstand the aggressive ambient conditions that sometimes surrounds the system.

The system includes a software that allows real time inspection, fast and precise temperature measurement, full remote control of all infrared cameras, configuration of different inspection zones, pre-alarms and alarms, notification of alarms by email, sms or digital outputs, recording functions (images and video) as well as the analysis of the measured data.

FireTIR system includes discrimination capabilities, avoiding unwanted alarms due to moving vehicles and objects. It consists of intelligent algorithms based on the recognition of the pixel’s movement.
