Fireye’s flame scanners are fully compatible for use on hydrogen (H2) flame applications and H2 / gas applications. With the growing demand for hydrogen in the global energy market, it is increasingly important for correct flame detection via the use of a hydrogen-ready flame scanner.
While Ultraviolet (UV) is predominantly used for H2 flame detection other factors are important in determining the correct hydrogen flame scanner to use.
With the ever-changing flame profiles within a hydrogen/gas mixture, hydrogen flame scanners need to be capable of multiple flicker frequencies in order to ensure accurate hydrogen flame discrimination.
