Fire Detection Solutions for Recycling Plants
In recent years, many recycling plants have had fires due to various external events and equipment failures. These events and failures have caused combustible waste products to be ignited, often with catastrophic results.
Recognising this, Patol offers a range of recycling plant fire protection solutions, recommending a combination of specialist products for early detection of potential and actual fires in harsh environments.
Typically, plants process mixed recyclable waste, which is collected, sorted, stockpiled and processed from a number of materials such as wood, plastic, paper, cardboard, rubber and carpet/tiles. The waste products are highly combustible and susceptible to potential ignition from the processing machinery.

Modern recycling plants are by their very nature, dirty and dusty environments. Patol have four specialist detection products that provide a complete solution for dusty environments. These products have been extensively used for many years to protect high value assets such as coal fired power stations and steel mills.
Types of detection products available include:
- Infrared Transit Heat Sensors for monitoring waste on conveyor systems.
- Linear Heat Detection Cable for machinery or internal waste reception and storage areas.
- Thermal Infrared Cameras for internal waste reception and storage areas.
