Catching Fire – Aerial Fire Mapping

Wildfires are a permanent threat for several regions around the world – and the global climate change is adding to the number and severity of these events. Fighting them is a huge challenge, strong winds, heat and inaccessibility make it even more difficult and dangerous for those who risk their life to protect others. One approach to tackle wildfires is the usage of airborne fire mapping. Highland Helicopters is a service company which added this task to their portfolio, as wildfires on New Zealand´s South Island happened right at their front door. On board is the VarioCAM® HD head 800 from InfraTec.

WASTE-SCAN Against "Black Clouds"

Many tons of waste are bunkered and processed every day in waste recycling plants. It is not uncommon for this to contain highly flammable materials. If ignition sources get into this storage area, for example during delivery, there is an acute risk of fire. Therefore, waste incineration plants are subject to the strictest fire protection requirements in order to prevent endangering the environment and local residents. For this reason, an extremely important preventive measure is the permanent monitoring of the waste bunker and, if necessary, the surrounding areas.

Early Fire Detection in Incineration Plant

The Amager Resource Center (ARC) is a waste incinerator like no other. From the roof of the Waste to Energy facility, skiers and snowboarders wind their way down on green plastic mats from a height of about 80 meters, even in the summer. The city hall of the Danish capital, Copenhagen, is just five kilometres away. The location, which is almost in the heart of a European capital, as well as its use as a public leisure centre, shows how much confidence operators place in the safety of the ARC. An important component in the security concept is the WASTE-SCAN infrared monitoring system for early fire detection by InfraTec.

Fire Protection in Wood Pellet Storage

Wood pellets as an alternative and high-quality fuel have become increasingly important in recent years. Their local origin from sustainable cultivation in the region has given WUN Bioenergie GmbH the opportunity to respond to market demand as an environmentally friendly supplier of raw materials. However, like other fuels, stored wood pellets need to be secured and monitored around the clock to prevent causes of devastating damage in the event of a fire, for example. Robust and reliable thermography solutions are a suitable tool for plant protection here.

Early Fire Detection in the Power Plant

Today's power and heating supply in the city of Bern is hardly imaginable without the Forsthaus energy centre (Energiezentrale Forsthaus – EZF). This power plant combines a refuse incineration plant (KVA) with a wood heating power plant and a combined gas‐steam power plant. The Swiss company relies on the WASTE‐SCAN infrared monitoring system from InfraTec for the early fire detection.

Statements of our Customers

TMD Friction Holdings GmbH

Time flies so fast! We would like to congratulate you on the company's anniversary and take this opportunity to thank you for the good cooperation over the past decades. We have been working with InfraTec for over 20 years and thus have been able to take advantage of the continuous progress in thermography. Be it in the area of process control in manufacturing or in the development of brake pads. Today, inline thermography in particular provides us with innovative possibilities in our daily NVH work. We are looking forward to the next innovations!

Thomas Haite, Specialist NVH, TMD Friction Holdings GmbH

Zweckverband Müllverwertung Schwandorf

As the operator of the second largest waste-to-energy plant in Bavaria and ultimately responsible for waste disposal safety in the entire eastern Bavarian region, it was eminently important for us to use a future-proof and, above all, reliable technology for automated fire and temperature detection to monitor the waste bunker, which represents our largest fire load.

We have not regretted our decision to work with InfraTec from Dresden. We would especially like to emphasize the flexible, uncomplicated and at any time accommodating cooperation, especially when it comes to scheduling and remedying defects, as this is unfortunately the exception rather than the rule in business relationships nowadays.

In this respect, we would like to congratulate InfraTec on its anniversary, wish it continued good business development and that the company philosophy of good, cooperative collaboration with customers continues to be cultivated in the same way as before.

Konrad Rieger, Technical Manager, Operations Manager Waste-to-Energy Plant, Zweckverband Müllverwertung Schwandorf
