Tunnel installations include conditions with dirt, dust, moisture, and corrosive environments. Conventional technology often fails to provide a reliable and cost-effective protection solution. Forced by the conditions, conventional detectors tend to result in false alarms and often lead to significant maintenance outlays. The TASC Linear Detection System is designed to minimize operating costs and to operating with maximum reliability even in adverse conditions such as:
– Dirty, dusty and corrosive environments.
– High humidity and dynamic temperature fluctuations.
– Solvent fumes and radiation.
– ATEX classified areas with gas or dust.
The most dangerous incident that can occur in a tunnel is a FIRE. Due to the fuel of the vehicles that circulate in tunnels and/or the transport of dangerous goods, the possible fires that could be generated in a tunnel would be of great calorific power. In addition to this, there would be a high presence of toxic gases, poor visibility due to smoke, disorientation of users, emergency exits difficult to locate and the so-called “oven effect”.
