Forney's Mill Fire Detection System (MFDS) can notify you of a potentially hazardous situation in your mill before a fire starts, preventing damage to equipment and personnel. An impending fire can be predicted by monitoring the carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations in the atmosphere surrounding coal. In fact, a predictable increase in CO levels occurs up to 1½ hours before the first visual indication of a fire.

It is no longer necessary to accept the hazards of fires and explosions while processing and storing pulverized coal.

Systems Features

  • Single climate-controlled, 19" rack mounted analyzer.
  • Manifolds with up to sixteen (16) electrochemical sensors mounted as a set of two (2) per channel.
  • Sensors are maintained at a constant temperature.
  • Analyzer uses a solid-state detector, recognized for its ruggedness and low maintenance requirements.
  • Proprietary probe allows the extraction of a representative sample from the dust-laden atmosphere.
  • Coherent sampling system handles up to eight sample points with continuous feedback.
  • Latest microprocessor technology performs automatic calibration and alarming functions in the system itself, such as failure to calibrate, loss of sample, etc.
  • Self-diagnostic program identifies any problem and indicates it on the HMI display.

Forney MFDS Applications
The Forney Mill Fire Detection System (MFDS) is used for continuous monitoring of CO for early detection of fires in your coal processing and storage. The MFDS is effective in:

  • Coal Pulverizers (Mills)
  • Coal Storage Areas (Silos)
  • Raw Coal Bunkers
  • Coal Utilization Bins (Hoppers & Feeders)
  • Coal Dust Filters (Baghouse & ESPs)
  • Coal Transport Systems (Conveyors)
  • Coal Transfer Tunnels
