Spark control

SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging light guides play an important part when it comes to spark recognition in silos, filters, dryers and pipes. In case a spark occurs during the processing of substances like wood or flour a light guide transmits the spark to a external detector unit which in turn activates a fire extinguisher. The system is then automatically shut down to prevent any destruction. Our hot-fused flexible light guides allow spark recognition in harsh high-temperature environments up to 350°C, thus broadening the spectrum of applications.
