Air Sampling
Supplement Your Supprossion System With Early Warning Detection Methods

Air Sampling is a Superior Method of Early Warning Detection

Air sampling detectors (ASDs) are a superior method of early warning detection, which identifies invisible by-products of degrading materials during the pre-combustion stages of an emerging fire. Unlike passive smoke detection systems, including soot detectors, air sampling detectors actively draw smoke to the detector through a piping system that runs throughout the protected area. ASD systems are designed to sound an alert any time the ASD’s ability to detect smoke is compromised. ASDs are suitable for environments where a highly sensitive, rapid smoke detection capability is required.

Range of applications could include:

  • Correctional Facilities
  • Clean Rooms
  • Cold Storage
  • Cultural/Heritage
  • Data & Telecom
  • Hospitals and Healthcare
  • Insurance
  • Marine
  • Nuclear Facilities
  • Oil & Gas
  • Portable Switch Rooms
  • Power Generation
  • Records Storage
  • Transportation
  • Wind Power Generation
  • Warehousing
  • Apartments and Hotels
  • Shops & Offices

F5 Faast Air Sample Detector
Notifier’s FAAST® (Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology) actively draws air samples through a network of pipes to the smoke detector. Blue LEDs and an infrared laser in conjunction with sophisticated algorithms detect incipient fires without triggering false alarms from non-hazardous particulates, like dust or other contaminants.
Xtralis’ VESDA® , the acknowledged industry leader in incipient fire detection, offers a full line of air sampling solutions for small spaces up to large multi-detector network applications.
