52 NEW PRODUCTS & SERVICES FIRE DETECTION


Draeger Safety UK says its new Dräger Flame 3000 explosion- proof image-processing flame detector helps keep workers protected round the clock. Designed for standalone


operation, it can also be integrated with a control system or fire panel, offering what the company describes as a reliable solution to flame detection and a high level of false-alarm immunity. The chemical industry encompasses a wide array of diverse processes


and applications, and, as a result, the Flame 3000 can work alongside Dräger’s entire range of flame-detection equipment to create a bespoke solution for every client. According to Dräger, this approach is driven by the application, and takes into consideration substance, surrounding environment and processes, fire type (hydrocarbon or non-hydrocarbon) and size. Both the Flame 3000 and existing Flame 5000 are said to be suitable


for use in hazardous environments, such as refineries and chemical plants, because the sensitivity is not affected by reflections. Impervious to CO2 emissions, along with hot gases and equipment, the flame-detection system can be installed in any industrial situation where a potential fire source exists, adds the company. Chris Baldwin, product manager, Draeger Fire & Gas Systems, said: “In


the chemical and petrochemical industries there is no room for error. Our flame-detection solutions are designed to mitigate against false alarms, with sophisticated technology that warns you only when there is a real incident to deal with, thus saving precious time and money.

HEAD AND FACE PROTECTION


Designed for use in all welding applications, ESAB’s new Warrior™ Tech welding helmet is said to meet the needs of welding professionals who require a high- specification, ergonomically-designed lightweight helmet that provides protection from dangerous UV/IR radiation and heat. Critical for any welder is the performance of


the lens, says ESAB, which points out that the Warrior Tech’s four welding-arc sensors provide high response levels and a wider sensory coverage than many alternative helmets of this type. The firm explains that the helmet has a large viewing area of 98mm x 48mm and features shade adjustment between DIN9 and DIN13 thanks to its automatic shade-darkening filter lens. The helmet is said to offer optimal


performance for most fabrication and out-of- position welding. Its sensitivity control is a useful adaptable feature when welding with low amperages, and ensures a better reaction to darker arc light, adds ESAB. Visit www.esab.co.uk or call 0800 389 3152 for more information.


DOWN-DRAUGHT BENCH


Aylesbury-based rapid-prototyping company, Graphite, which prints plastic parts – including consumer goods, car parts, aerospace components and high-temperature tooling – has invested in a down-draught bench from AirBench. The product is helping the company contain


the dust that is generated during the printing process – not only for the safety of its staff but also to keep the facility clean and tidy.


Graphite’s


managing director, Kevin Lambourne, said: “After


considering many different solutions, we chose to invest with AirBench. With a plug-and-play installation, it means we can easily relocate the unit and add additional benches as we grow the business. Its quiet operation and knee space also means we can comfortably use it all day long. Business is doing well and we are so pleased with the product we’ll soon be ordering our third one.” AirBench is described as one of the UK’s


leading down-draught benches, and is available in more than 200 different variations. Visit airbench.comfor more information.


SAFETY FOOTWEAR


Fortress Distribution has introduced a re-usable shoe cover to its range. Designed to fit conveniently and quickly over safety footwear, the Yuleys slip-on/slip-off safety footwear protector is said to enable construction workers, tradesmen and delivery drivers to enter clean environments without the need to remove their dirty footwear. Described as an


environmentally-friendly and cost-conscious alternative to traditional disposable shoe covers, Yuleys can easily be cleaned with warm water for years of use. According to the company,


the footwear is a seamless one-piece shoe cover made of flexible industrial-grade SEBS rubber and comes in a variety of sizes to fit the majority of work shoes and boots. Founded last year, Fortress Distribution says it is growing rapidly


through its partnership with Black Mamba Gloves and Accessories, and is looking forward to introducing additional brands to its safety and workwear portfolio. Alan Matthews, director at Fortress Distribution, said: “We are really


excited to be partnering with Yuleys protective footwear to bring this unique product to the UK and Ireland. There is a real gap in the market for the solution that Yuleys provides and we can see a tremendous opportunity for this product.” For more information about Fortress Distribution Ltd, visit www.fortressdistribution.co.uk or call 01908 676869.
