Early fire detection with TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors
Detect fires early, with no false alarms
Every second counts where fire is concerned. The faster a fire is detected, the faster action can be taken in order to prevent more serious damage. The head start that WAGNER’S TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors offer can be crucial to a company’s continued existence. After all, fire is an ever-present risk that is not to be underestimated. Material assets, operational processes, people and the environment are always exposed to this threat, which is why appropriate fire protection solutions are so important.
According to statistics by Siegfried Bussenius, the majority of damaging fires (68 %) develop from prolonged smouldering fires. Conventional smoke detectors have a crucial disadvantage there: depending on whether they are optical fire detectors or heat detectors, these smoke detectors will only react to high concentrations of smoke or increased temperatures within the protected area. By that time it is often too late to implement countermeasures.
WAGNER’s highly sensitive air sampling smoke detection systems (previously known as aspirating smoke detection systems) offer early smoke detection in the pyrolysis phase along with graduated alarms. High response sensitivity, continuous air sampling, and a graded alarm-activation concept ensure early detection of smouldering and incipient fires, so that users have time to react to alarms appropriately.
A crucial head start when it counts
WAGNER uses optical air sampling smoke detectors with HPLS technology for early fire detection. The structure of our air sampling smoke detection systems is based on a pipe system with air sampling points and a base unit with a detector module. For project configuration purposes, each of the air sampling points correspond to one point-type smoke detector.
WAGNER has been developing its own air sampling smoke detectors since 1997. The TITANUS® family features unparalleled detection quality and safety against false alarms—when it comes to air sampling smoke detectors choose WAGNER

Using OxyReduct® significantly reduces fire risk in the protected area. Combining a fire prevention system with an early fire detection system and a risk management system has given us the ideal solution.

Independently operated transformer stations require fire protection that will detect fires automatically and as quickly as possible. TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors offer the earliest possible fire detection, giving operators the time they need to suppress fires early on. Remote equipment diagnostics are possible as well.
