Flame detector

The “Four Industriel Belge” (FIB) is the world leader in furnaces for metal thread treatment.
In order to guarantee safety, an important issue must be taken into account: if gas is injected into the furnace, it must be burned in full. The injection of gas without the presence of a flame risks causing the furnace to explode!
FIB hired Macq to develop a new generation of detector. The specifications were very simple, the detector must be:
Perfectly safe
Easy to use
Not penetrate the furnace
Robust to withstand very difficult environments
Easy to maintain
Commercially attractive and visible and not too expensive
Based on these requirements, Macq created the Gorgon, an FIB flame detector, which is now successfully marketed around the world.
