FAAST impresses Symposium Crowds

December 6, 2017

Felix Heck, Business Development Manager for FAAST, recently presented FAAST’s impressive detection accuracy and reliability at the Anlagensicherheit/Störfallvorsorge Symposium in Dresden, Germany.

The symposium, which takes place every two years, was hosted by the Saxon State Office for the Environment Agriculture and Geology on 30th November 2017, with over 200 participants from diverse backgrounds in plant operations, engineering and research attending. The event’s aim is to bring together key manufacturers, operators, firms and institutes for a powerful networking experience and also provide a platform to discuss the new SEVESO III Directive and its impact on German law.

A main topic of interest was the fire protection and structural prevention of fires and dangers in production and storage facilities for dangerous goods. The FAAST range, presented by Felix Heck, proved to be a highlight at the event, demonstrating benchmark detection capability and false alarm immunity in hazardous locations.

Felix comments on the reaction to FAAST and why the device is so well suited to hazardous area monitoring. “FAAST ASD devices can detect smoke many hours before a fire even starts, making them ideal for the most hazardous and challenging areas. FAAST offers the most accurate and reliable detection with false alarm immunity for a diverse array of applications; from cleanrooms and laboratories up to very dirty and harsh environments (e.g. heavy industry or recycling plants).

“The event put a lot of focus on the value of both accuracy and false alarm immunity as well as the ability to offer remote monitoring capabilities to enhance intervention effectiveness in the event of a fire. These focuses helped to showcase the real-world value of FAAST’s notable performance and stability aspects in terms of minimizing unnecessary downtime and better protecting assets and personnel. It was a very successful event and we gained a great deal of interest in FAAST and a number of requests for specific application support.”
