Challenge - Combustible materials in demanding environments
Wood and cardboard are stored and processed in various ways everywhere on the plant site. This poses a potential fire hazard. The batteries of multiple machines, which give off heat and can overheat, also contribute to this. Monitoring technology must reliably monitor the extensive outdoor area and large warehouses. In addition, Wegmüller Attikon operates three wood chip silos, which, in addition to the fire hazard, have an excessively dusty environment. Forklifts and trucks move around the site. The aim is to prevent vehicles with hot engines, body parts, and exhaust systems from triggering false alarms during fire protection monitoring.
