The Indian Space Research Organisation selects Spectrex flame detectors

Published:  18 July, 2016

A number of detectors with built-in-test capabilities are now in place protecting key areas within the Indian Space Research Organisation’s facilities.

Although headquartered in Bangalore, ISRO’s primary spaceport is the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh, where on June 22 the space agency set a world record with launch of 20 satellites in a single payload.

The 40/40LB UV/IR flame detector combines UV and IR sensors where the IR sensor operates at a wavelength of 2.5-3 μm, and can detect hydrocarbon-based fuel and gas fires, hydroxyl and hydrogen fires, as well as metal and inorganic fires.

The patented optical UV/IR and IR3 flame detector designs and pioneering patented Xenon flash designs in open path gas detectors are now the standard for oil and gas projects.
