Waste Recycling Plants Enhance Fire Safety with FAAST
A growing number of recycling and waste management plants are using Honeywellâ€™s Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology (FAAST) smoke detector, the company says.
The system design removes both dust-stimulated false alarms and problems arising from environmental fluctuation.
FAAST uses a three-stage filtration technique, dual-optics particle analysis and intelligent algorithms that distinguish smoke from dust. The company says the device can withstand temperature and humidity variations, auto-learning its environment.
Tim Checketts, business development manager for Honeywell fire safety, says high dust prevalence and environmental fluctuations cause increased false alarms, which lead to unplanned downtimes â€” at least 30 minutes unplanned downtime and resources to investigate per event â€” and increase maintenance needs. Using FAAST will reduce waste management plantsâ€™ total cost of fire safety, Checketts says.
