Spark detection and extinguishing systems have proven invaluable in hundreds of applications across North America, preventing fires and explosions that once wreaked havoc in the wood processing industry.

Today, spark detection is at work in some of the most potentially volatile applications imaginable, including fiberboard, furniture, particleboard, plywood, wafer, flake, OSB, and hardboard plants just to name a few. Spark detectors use electronic photodiodes to sense the smallest spark in a duct.
