Daspos Fire Prevention System

The Daspos Fire Prevention System provides dual measurement detection and alarm of both oil mist/gas spray, methanol as well as hydrocarbon vapours. Any leakage of hydrocarbon will be detected by the system and its high airflow rate ensures far more reliable detection than light-scatter and other comparable technologies.

Proper fire prevention measures save valuable lives, time, and money. The Daspos Fire Prevention System is the 24/7 watch guard that never sleeps, giving crew members more time to react and dramatically reducing the risk of a fire.
