Up to 60% of fires within the wood processing and wood board industry can be attributed to Sanders. The high speeds associated with sanders, and friction, along with the risk of belts breaking and the build-up of dust within a Sander, make this a particularly high risk to any plant. Firefly’s SanderGuard™ system from Orthos can detect hot particles, sparks or flames both inside and outside the sander within 300ms.
The SanderGuard™ system is totally immune to daylight and other disturbances in the woodworking process. There is no other industrial fire protection system on the market that is able to operate in such harsh environments!
