Talentum Flame Detectors
The Talentum® story began when inventor Andrew Broadbent’s father; a textile supervisor, felt that the local fire service was becoming too permanent a fixture in his workplace. Traditional smoke detectors couldn’t cope with the dusty mill environment which resulted in frequent false alarms. This presented a real risk of distracting the fire service from emergencies, or creating a ‘cry wolf’ scenario where the alarm would not be taken seriously.
Andrew knew that the first evidence of a fire in a textile warehouse would be a spark, not smoke, so he developed the world’s first rear-viewing infrared device for flame detection. Able to detect a flicker within 27 milliseconds, it also happens to be the world’s fastest.
So rapid is the detection, and so respected is the Talentum® solution, that the BLOODHOUND Project to set a new land speed record of 1000mph has selected Talentum® as its flame detection device.
Like the BLOODHOUND Project team, we’re ambitious and we don’t believe in standing still. Talentum® is ever-evolving and new features, such as a Testing Air Purge kit for exceptionally high dust environments, are already being planned. With Talentum® you’re kept one step ahead of risk, and your sites and assets are kept safe.
