Talentum® Spark

The Talentum® Spark is a specialist detector designed for industrial applications to protect enclosed, dark areas where visible light is not present.


This detector has a high sensitivity to flame, sparks, and embers and has a very fast response time. The detector has one infra-red (IR) sensor, which is selective to low frequency modulated infra-red (IR) radiation such as that emitted from flames and sparks.

Many different sources can cause sparks:

  • Blunt tooling
  • Dryers
  • Heaters
  • Hot bearings
  • Hot surfaces
  • Friction


If these sparks are picked up by the pneumatic ducts and transported to silos, it can lead to a catastrophic disaster. In a confined environment, such as ducts or silos, combustion can lead to an explosion due to the building pressure of rapid combustion in enclosed environments.


By using a specialised IR sensor, the Talentum® Spark can respond to 1.0 to 3.0μm light emitted by sparks and prevent them from reaching silos of materials where an explosion could then occur.

Spark detection is a proactive measure of explosion prevention, leading to decreased downtime for your factory.
