The 40/40I optical flame detector is a multi spectrum based on three IR bands (IR3), detects fuel and gas fires at long distances with the highest immunity to false alarms. The 40/40I IR3 can detect a 1ft2 (0.1 m2) gasoline pan fire at 215 ft (65m) in less than 5 seconds.

Spectrex Inc. is a technology leader in optical Flame and Open Path Gas Detection (OPGD). Our patented optical UV/IR and IR3 Flame Detector designs, and pioneering patented Xenon Flash designs in OPGD detectors are now the standard for Oil & Gas projects.

A wide range of flame detectors are available, from ultra fast (msec) detection time to high sensitivity hydrocarbon and hydrogen flame detection, alongside the equally large OPGD range that can detect hazardous gases, from flammable hydrocarbons to toxic Ammonia and Hydrogen Sulfide.

All Spectrex products can operate in the toughest conditions, from African deserts to Alaskan waters, and are fully approved to meet relevant third-party Ex hazardous area, performance and reliability standards in a wide range of applications and challenging situations worldwide.
