Firefly AB has always been known for its advanced detection technology with high performance detection of hot black particles, glowing embers and sparks as well as the detectors being insensitive to daylight. Firefly has had several other third party approvals but this is the first time the detection temperature has been approved.

Detecting down to 400°C or 250°C is critical to prevent fires and dust explosions based on the minimum ignition temperature (MIT) and minimum ignition energy (MIE) for most process material.
