Teledyne Flame and Gas Detection is hosting a free webinar that will illustrate how the latest flame detector technology with on-board video capture can enhance the situational awareness and safety of first responders. Taking place on Wednesday 11 October 2023 at 14:00 (UTC+1) UK time, this informative webinar is a not-to-be-missed event for anyone keen on learning more about flame detection and the benefits of on-board video.


Brent Kleven, Associate Product Manager – Americas, Fixed Gas Detection at Teledyne GFD, will present the webinar. As a highly skilled professional in the field of gas and flame detection with almost 40 years of industry experience, Brent Kleven will ensure webinar attendees discover the game-changing innovation of remote verification. A flame detector that can provide this information in real-time dramatically enhances the safety of first responders before they step into danger, ultimately making it an essential resource for managing hazardous situations.


Importantly, webinar attendees will also gain the ability to conduct thorough post-fire analysis. The latest Spyglass™ flame detectors from Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection can capture video one minute pre-event and three minutes post-event, helping users to understand the root cause of the fire: what happened, why, where and how?


Further information imparted during the webinar will ensure participants are able to capture complete imagery with high-definition video excellence. They will also learn how to choose between precision colour video versus near-infrared (NRI), discovering why colour is preferable for regular hydrocarbon fires but how selection differs for fires started by alternative fuels such as hydrogen.


Brent Kleven will walk webinar attendees through all these critical key points. He will also provide exclusive access to the ground-breaking capabilities of the new Spyglass™ flame detector from Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection.


Spyglass™ flame detectors work by analysing the absorption of radiation caused by gases in the atmosphere and comparing it to background atmospheric absorption. This innovative technology ensures clear imaging of fires up to distances of 30m. While the HD colour video unit is perfect for hydrocarbon fires as it provides a highly realistic view, hydrogen fires may be nearly invisible to the human eye and do not appear well on colour video. In these cases, NRI is more suitable as it enhances visibility and clearly displays the extent of the flames.
