Tobacco Fire protection in the Tobacco industry

Tobacco burns very slowly. This is a fact well-known by the tobacco industry. However, a burning pocket of tobacco can become a costly problem at the primary tobacco production facility or the cigarette factory. The most problematic areas are after dryers and cutters within the primary production area, together with the cigarette makers and dust extraction systems.

Firefly offers tailor-made systems for the tobacco industry. A Firefly protection system for the tobacco industry aims to detect and extinguish or isolate dangerous hot particles from the process.

Fire protection for cigarette making machines

Mechanical problems in the cigarette making machine can cause the generation of dangerous ignition sources. Firefly offers fast IR-radiation detection in combination with effective water spray extinguishing and water mist suppression to protect cigarette making machines.

Ignition sources can also be generated from all dust-producing equipment. By tailoring a fire protection system using fast IR-radiation detection and water spray extinguishing, Firefly aims to avoid costly fires and dust explosions in tobacco companies.

Fire protection for dryers

Burning tobacco can give rise to an exothermic reaction, i.e. producing its own heat and glows which could act as an ignition source.

By tailoring a fire protection system using fast IR-radiation detection in combination with extinguishing by mechanical diversion, Firefly aims to avoid costly fires and dust explosions in tobacco dryers.

Fire protection for cutters

Over-feeding of the mill and shredder can result in the creation of dangerous ignition sources. Also, contaminates can cause mechanical problems that create dangerous sparks.

By tailoring a fire protection system using fast IR-radiation detection in combination with water spray extinguishing and water mist suppression, Firefly aims to avoid costly fires in cigarette cutters.
