This unique Pilot Flame Detection System is designed for continuous duty monitoring of pilot flames on flare stacks. The heart of the system is the QUASAR Model M8100PM-EXP multi-wavelength, non-contact infrared thermometer which can be removed from the explosion proof housing for repairs or replacement, leaving intact all wiring and alignment of system.
A sight-through optical system and selection of various spot sizes enables the QUASAR to be positioned as far as 1300 feet from the stack being monitored, allowing for flame movement, varying luminosity and most climate conditions. Alignment on the flame is accomplished through superb sight-through optics and the M-3 Swivel Mount.
Alarm contact closure, delay adjustment and 4-20 mA output can be customized for a specific location or application, eliminating false alarms due to intermittent flames. A single internally oven-heated detector assures long-term stability and drift-free operation.
The system is complete with internal water base, swivel mount and airpurge tube and is CSA and CENELEC approved for hazardous locations.
