spark detection
explosion isolation

Sparks in pneumatic and mechanical conveying systems can lead to serious fires and possible explosions. This can result in loss of production, serious damage to the property and danger to humans. Processes can be protected from fires and explosions by detecting sparks with Spark Detection and creating water mist barriers, activating rapid acting isolation valves or simply shutting the process down.

Spark Extinguishing System

comprised of 3 major components:

Spark Detector

Extinguishing or Emergency Shut Down System

Control and Alarm Unit


The Spark Detectors are fully ATEX approved for use in Zone 20/21 areas

fast response

Within milliseconds, the extinguishing or isolation system is activated.

cost effective

Spark detection systems provide plant designers and end users with a cost effective solution

test facilities

The Spark Detectors are equipped with built-in test facilities

Spark Detectors monitor the process conveyors continually and send a signal to the Control Unit immediately if any sparks are detected.  Within milliseconds, the extinguishing or isolation system is activated. Contact Euratex for a free design consultation.

If exposed to flame the valve can be re-used but the seals and valve plate must be checked before re-entering service. The unit does not necessarily need to be returned to the manufacturer.  Savings are made in spares holding and down-time as a result. 


  • CAT2/3D electrical installation
  • Digital, pressure or optical sensors
