     Requirements & Practices to Implement Optical Flame Detection in Aircraft Hangars

     

    Presenter: John Jarvis, Ph.D

     


    Overview

    Aircraft hangar protection and fire detection poses requires unique detection and suppression methods to minimize capital loss and ensure the safety of those in near vicinity should an incident occur. An explanation of how optical flame detection works, from the general concept to different technologies, as well as response time vs. distance considerations will be discussed. Hanger specific design implementation considerations, from field of view, optimal coverage and detector mounting,placing, aiming and elevation of the detector height, all influence the effectiveness of the detection system. Various governing bodies and standards related to hangar protection will be presented, ranging from NFPA and military standards to Insurers. 

     

    John Jarvis joined Det-Tronics in 1998 and has held numerous roles in engineering, sales and marketing. He has extensive experience in the design, development and applications of many Det-Tronics products. John holds a Ph.D in Chemistry from Kansas State University as well as MS and BS degrees from Pittsburg State University.
