The Heat Detector is a vital fire alarm device which is designed specially to identify and information about the fire. The design of Heat Detector focuses on the increases in the temperature and the detector contains heat sensitive elements. It is best to place the Heat Detector in kitchen space to prevent fire mishappening.
The mechanism behind Heat Detector
The Heat Detector makes use of the thermocouple technologies and it also follows the electro-pneumatic technology which is sensitive to fire. When the heat increases, the temperature is also elevated and it reaches a fixed threshold. The life of a Heat Detector is usually 7-10 years or until it is operating in a full-fledged. The Heat Detector is installed in the living room, kitchen, near the stairways.
The Heat Detector contains a thermal mass and the element is used to identify the heat. The Heat Detector provides thermal lag which is used to provide information about the fire. The Heat Detector usually goes off when the temperature is increased above 57 degrees Celsius. The alarm is triggered as soon as the heat elevates at a particular temperature.
In order to test the functioning of Heat Detector, you can apply heat via hair dryer on the Heat Detector. When the Heat Detector is kept 6-8 inches away from the detector, you can notice the functioning of Heat Detector. The Heat Detector is used in residential space to detect fire. When the temperature increases then the Heat Detector warns the people ahead of time.
