The Intelligent Fire Prevention Platform
Firefly’s Unique Preventive Fire Protection Solutions
FIREFLY MILL ROOM PROTECTION™
Mill Room Protection™ is a fast acting fire protection system that prevents fires and dust explosions. The focus of Mill Room Protection™ Solution is to detect and extinguish a fire inside or around a mill as quickly as possible. The solution consists of a unique combination of Firefly Spark Detection System and Firefly Quick Suppression System.
FIREFLY FILTER PROTECTION
Dust extraction systems are vital to take care of dust generated in
dry bulk handling processes. The risk in these units is considered very high due to the high concentration of dust. Firefly’s FM-approved Spark Detection and Extinguishing System will efficiently prevent ignition sources from entering the risk zones.
FIREFLY SILO PROTECTION
Firefly’s True-IR detectors will prevent ignition sources (such as hot black particles, embers and sparks) from entering the silo. Full-cone water spray is one of the methods used to extinguish the ignition source in milliseconds after detection. The detection of a smouldering fire inside a silo is known to be very difficult. Firefly’s MGD, a gas analyzer, commonly known as “electronic nose,” is designed to detect the earliest stages of a combustion process, for example the self-heating process of an organic material.
ULTRA QUICK RESPONSE TIME
The Quick Suppression System, which is part of our Mill Room Protection™ solution, operates with high performance flame detectors for extremely quick detection. The efficient water mist system has remarkable suppression capabilities which reduce damages on machinery.
The True IR Spark detectors enable Precision Detection of ALL types of ignition sources such as hot black particles, glowing embers and sparks. The detectors are insensitive to daylight. Systems are also equipped with Multi-Channel flame detectors using advanced algorithms for Precision Detection of flames with high immunity to false positives.
EXCELLENT SUPPRESSION CAPABILITIES
The Water Mist System with fire-tested and verified extinguishing capabilities utilizes very small amounts of water resulting in less impact on machinery, minimized production loss and down time.

Reducing the risk of fire and costly downtime at Pellet plant Lesozavod 25 in Russia
Lesozavod 25 is a wood pellets production plant and a subsidiary to the Titan Group, located in Arkhangelsk in Russia. The main activity is the production of export sawn timber and wood pellets. The company specializes in processing softwood.
“We are using Firefly starting with the first plant 2013, and today Firefly is protecting all of our three pellets plants. Firefly’s Spark Detection System is protecting the complete process and our belt dryers have flame detection and water mist extinguishing. The system has saved us from a real disaster when hot particles came inside the dryer from probably a truck and Firefly detected and extinguished the hot particles which were falling from the belt before it started a fire. Reliable detections of the system give us real safety and we always find the cause of detection when Firefly stops the process. Nowadays we cannot run the production without Firefly.”
