IR detectors minimise fire risks

IR detectors minimise fire risks
Infrared IR detectors are widely used to monitor industrial facilities for the presence of flames, ensuring that the risk of an outbreak of fire is minimised. A flame will flicker randomly at a rate between 1-20Hz when it is burned naturally, modulating any IR signal generated. Pyroelectric and lead sulphide detectors sense this modulated IR light and so can provide a warning of the presence of a flame. The signal to noise characteristic of the IR sensor determines the range and sensitivity of the flame detection instrument.

Pyroelectric detectors for infrared spectrometers

Pyroelectric detectors for infrared spectrometers
Manufacturer of Deuterated L-Alanine doped Triglycine Sulphate (DLaTGS) pyroelectric detectors for infrared spectrometers, LASER COMPONENTS, supplies customers all over the world with these industrial grade detectors from its research and production facility in Florida. DLaTGS has several advantages over standard TGS, the material is doped with deuterium to raise the Currie temperature to 61°C, while doping with L-alanine prevents permanent depoling after excursions above the Currie temperature.

Heavy duty liquid level switch with glass sensor tip

Heavy duty liquid level switch with glass sensor tip
Developer and manufacturer of fluid and gas sensing solutions, SST Sensing, has released its Optomax Industrial Glass devices which are targeted at installation within harsh industrial environments. Thanks to their stainless steel construction and glass sensor tip, these single point liquid level switches exhibit elevated operational robustness. As a result, these devices are suited to applications where they are exposed to extreme temperatures (up to 125°C) and high pressures (up to 600bar).

Low noise infrared camera is looking at the sky

Low noise infrared camera is looking at the sky
The 6-telescope beam combination instrument developed by the University of Exeter (UK) and the University of Michigan (USA), MIRC-X, together with C-RED One, the low noise infrared camera from First Light Imaging, are opening new perspectives in infrared interferometry for astronomy. The MIRC-X imager is now looking at the sky on the CHARA telescope array, which is supposedly the world’s highestresolution imaging facility in infrared light, located at the Mount Wilson Observatory in California.

IR filters and coatings suitable for NDIR spectroscopy

IR filters and coatings suitable for NDIR spectroscopy
Specialist in the supply of infra-red filters and coatings, LASER COMPONENTS, has announced that its optical components can be used in the analysis of vehicle exhaust emissions using Non Dispersive Infrared spectroscopy (NDIR). The coatings used in narrow band pass filters are made up of several layers which create a complicated process of destructive and constructive interference, isolating a narrow region of the IR spectrum.

Infrared heaters save church 75% in energy costs

Infrared heaters save church 75% in energy costs
The inefficient underfloor heating system at St Michael’s Church in Wolverhampton has been replaced with Tansun's highly efficient infrared heaters saving over 75% in energy costs. The church’s congregation desperately sought a permanent heating solution to keep them warm during their services that didn’t take hours to preheat. Their previous underfloor heating had to be switched on three days before Sunday service.
