In many different industries where bulk materials are processed, fires and dust explosions occur again and again worldwide with far reaching consequences.
Interruptions of the production process that are caused this way lead to substantial follow-up costs, quite apart from the personal injuries and property damage. With GreCon Spark Detection and Extinguishing Systems, the risks of fire can be prevented by a special technique: detection, as quick as a flash, and automatic extinguishment of the ignition energy before fire can arise.

- Eliminates ignition sources
- Fire and explosion prevention
- Avoid property, equipment and personal damage
- Maintain greatest production availability
- Discount for fire protection risk insurance possible
In times of worldwide competition, modern production plants become more and more efficient. Besides new factories, a continuous improvement and increase in productivity are therefore demanded from already existing and often obsolete production lines. Nevertheless, production safety must not suffer from this. Above all, it is necessary to nip the creation of fires and explosions in the bud. Unprotected facilities for comminution, drying, cooling and pressing are especially at risk with their pneumatic or mechanical conveying or extraction systems. Industry-specific protection solutions.
GreCon spark detection and extinguishment systems substantially contribute to an elimination of such varied danger sources. As preventive fire protection for filter systems and silos in numerous production plants, they have been part of the standard equipment in the area of safety technology for decades to protect mechanical or pneumatic conveying systems.
Spark detection and extinguishment systems can detect and eliminate ignition sources before fires or explosions occur.
A GreCon spark detection and extinguishment system is suitable for almost any position of the production process to ensure fire protection or monitoring functions by means of special sensors. IR detectors monitor conveyors and can if necessary activate high-speed water extinguishing devices within a few milliseconds. The spreading of ignition energy can be effectively prevented. A diversion or shut-off of the product flow is an option and is used whenever extinguishment with water is impossible.
Depending on the events, that are recorded exactly to the millisecond, adequate measures are automatically and specifically activated via a 4-fold graduated alarm system. These measures can be mostly carried out without interrupting the production process. Action is taken ad hoc to minimise damage and the resulting downtime without unnecessarily disturbing the production process.
Furthermore, filters or silos can be monitored for fire arising during standstill periods or self-ignition by suitable GreCon technology. In such cases, extinguishment is activated even before the operator or the fire brigade notice the arising fire.
With GreCon spark detection and extinguishment systems, a very high measure of system and operational safety and reliability is achieved. This is nowadays of very high importance in modern production plants, especially concerning safety regulations. The permanent availability of production facilities of high investment value is to be guaranteed, especially in difficult economic times and under (international) competitive pressure.
To maintain maximum availability and reliability of your GreCon systems – that’s what we are there for! Both in the field of fire protection and in measuring technology. The GreCon spark extinguishing system detects sparks and extinguishes them before they cause damage. A service plan, which was developed especially for these systems, provides for reliability and removes any worry about damage through fire. Measuring technology from GreCon will help you to optimise the use of energy and resources by gaining objective data. The quality and reliability of these measuring results influences your product quality and your production result.
