Apollo Fire Detectors will be promoting developments in marine fire detection technology to operators at this year’s SMM exhibition.

One of the product ranges on the stand will be Discovery – a high specification analogue addressable fire detector, designed to meet the requirements for sophisticated fire management systems.

“Apollo understands the unique challenges associated with providing fire detection in shipping and offshore facilities, to ensure the correct technical solution is deployed,” said Warren Moyle, senior technical support engineer at Apollo.

“Detectors for marine applications have to operate reliably under challenging conditions. In addition, devices installed into marine applications have to comply with a unique set of approvals. Apollo has a long tradition of developing specialist detectors that meet these stringent standards.”

Volatile environments

My Moyle also explained that the company will be promoting the Apollo XP95 and the Orbis marine ranges, which have been specially developed to meet stringent marine approvals and include intrinsically safe detectors for volatile environments like oil rigs.

In addition to detectors, a selection of supplementary fire system products will also be on display on the stand.

These include visual indicators and sounders for environments with high ambient noise, or where visual indication of an alarm is required.

Ingress of water into fire detectors is another risk in marine environments and devices like the Apollo Deckhead Mounting Box are designed specifically to prevent contaminants entering through the rear of the base.
