New Heat Sensor Helps Stop Onboard Fires
there’s intense heat aboard, there’s going to be a
fire. Sea-Fire Marine, a leader in fire suppression
technology, works hard not only to find the latest
ways to put out fires, but also prevent them. An
innovative, early warning system, their new Heat
Sensor with display alerts boat owners to
dangerously high engine room temperatures.
The economical Heat Sensor system is intended for
engine rooms in any sized craft up to large yachts.
The sensors are available in two versions. An open
model is designed to be mounted on the extinguishing
system cylinder and is set at 151°F which is 55°F
lower than the discharge temperature. The other
style sensor features an enclosed casing for
installation throughout the engine room compartment.
It activates at 140°F.
These sensors indicate threatening temps and give
owners a chance to stop impending fires. Simple to
install, multiple sensors can be fit in an engine
room, depending on desired sensitivity. The system
is compatible with the full range of Sea-Fire ESRS
units, allowing for shutdown override control and
cylinder discharge notification.
rectangular or round mounted display panel with a
separate high temperature zone supplies both a
visual and audible alarm of threatening amounts of
engine room heat. Measuring just 3-1/3" x 2-6/7" x
5/9", the unique display features a weatherproof
design and LED dim function for night navigation.
Suggested retail price of the Heat Sensor warning
system display from Sea-Fire Marine is $149. Heat
sensors cost $108 each.
