A market leading developer of fire prevention and protection systems for the process industry.

Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Firefly AB is a market leading developer of fire prevention and protection systems for the process industry.  Firefly’s complete solutions which include detection, extinguishing and control, has national and international certifications and are active in more than 80 countries. The company has 50 years of know-how and experience of industrial fire protection and provide local expertise all over the word.

Firefly’s unique, patented prevention systems stand out in the world because of their design to detect and extinguish ignition sources before a fire or explosion occurs. As is the case of the Firefly Spark Detection System solution, with FM approved detectors to detect superheated particles from 250 °C. At this point, the particles are dark, they do not emit light, and Firefly detectors are able to detect them due to their patented True IR technology.

The solutions are tailored to each process and plant. Firefly has extensive experience in industries such as Tissue, Pulp and Paper, Wood, Recycling, Power Generation, Bioenergy, Food, Tobacco, and Hygiene.

On Wednesday, June 23rd, Ryan Morrow, Firefly expert and Director for North America will be sharing, live from Sweden, the prevention solutions specially designed for the Hygiene industry.

In the hygiene industry, diapers, sanitary napkins, and other personal sanitary products are manufactured with similar technology. Pulp is milled and transferred to a forming station where Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP) are added. The pulp is then sucked onto a polymer film by a vacuum system which is effectively a dust extraction system.

Overfeeding or malfunction of the mills can cause ignition, as can problems at the forming head or fan failure. Ignition sources can ignite the product, in the worst case while in storage, or it can ignite collected dust in the dust removal system (dust filter). The result can be devastating fires resulting in damages and costly production downtime.

To avoid ignition in the process it is important to detect and extinguish sparks and hot particles which could have been produced by the mill or fan. Firefly offers many Spark Detection and Quick Suppression solutions to protect these processes.
