The Drager Flame 3000 is an imaging-based explosion-proof flame detector. This visual flame detection system uses digital image processing and advanced algorithms to process and interpret flame characteristics. This principle offers an extended field of view and fewer false alarms.

Superior False Alarm Immunity

The unique software algorithm of the Flame 3000 is capable of discriminating between genuine fire conditions and other radiant sources that may cause conventional detectors to become desensitized or produce unwanted alarms. The detector is immune to common sources of unwanted alarms, such as welding work, hot CO2 emissions and flare reflections. This makes it a great partner on your oil rig or industry plant.

Enlarged Field of View

The Flame 3000 can detect n-heptane fires of 0.1 m2 or greater at a 60 m (200 ft) distance within a 120° horizontal and 80° vertical field of view. The detector’s field of view is a rectangular pyramid shape. This gives it one of the greatest standard coverage areas and range of any available flame detector.

Flexible operation

The Flame 3000 operates as a stand-alone unit or can be connected to a control system or a fire panel to provide fault and fire signalling. This is achieved using a 0 to 20 mA signal or relay outputs.

Functional testing

The Drager FS-5000 flame simulator tests Dräger Flame Detectors at distances up to eight metres (26 ft). Maintenance costs can be decreased with a reduced need for scaffolds or ladders to access the detector.

Easy to install and use

The detector is easy to install using a stainless steel mounting bracket. The swivelling mounting bracket ensures that the device is optimally aimed towards potential sources of fire. The device status is displayed to nearby workers by a tri-coloured LED light.
