The NESTE oil bio-ethanol plant, constructed in the Port of Rotterdam, is equipped with SharpEye 40/40I and SharpEye 40/40M optical flame detectors.

The ongoing demand for environmentally friendly biofuels has created the need for dedicated extraction plants that produce biofuels from various agricultural crops. Production of ethanol from corn is a growing trend all worldwide. The ethanol serves as a clean burning fuel, but due to its high flammability its production process requires special fast and reliable fire-detection and suppression means.

The SharpEye 40/40 line of optical flame detectors provides enhanced sensitivity and highest immunity to false alarms, thus making them the preferred fire-protection solution for the modern biofuels industry.

Spectrex is the world-leader in the flame and open path gas detectors (OPGD) field. We are fully committed to enhancing the safety of your employees, capital investments and to the environment. Being the first to launch major innovations that have become trade standards, such as the first UV/IR and IR3 flame detector designs, Spectrex continues to offer more than 40 different flame detector designs to meet application challenges from offshore to mall floors, from Alaska to Malaysia. Spectrex was first to incorporate the Xenon Flash in OPGDs to solve false-alarm issues common in the industry. Today, more than 28 major OPGD designs are offered by Spectrex for continuous hydrocarbon and toxic gas monitoring.
