Costs caused by not recognising the beginnings of a fire in a power station can quickly run to the millions.
Fire damage in secondary areas can also cause prolonged down time and add to ongoing running costs.
This is not to mention the possible loss to life should a catastrophic fire develop.
Power stations contain different operating and functional areas creating a complex site.
Therefore integration of an affective and fast fire detection system is crucial in the design of any power plant.
In 2019 Masinloc Power Partners Co, bought online their 335Mw power station in Masinloc, The Philippines.
The design of the fire system was paramount to the overall operation of the power station.
The power station is situated on a coastal site allowing for the coal to be deposited directly from the dock side. The coal is then needed to be taken from this store into the power plant itself. A 2km series of conveyors was assembled to achieve this.
The conveyor system employed Signaline Linear Heat detection throughout to detect any overheating section.
The Signaline FT-R range is particularly suited for this application as it allows for long single zones of line type heat detection.
It is also highly sensitive for close area overheating, like those found within conveyor systems.
The Signaline LocatorPlus will also identify the alarm location to the extinguishing system. Allowing for quick identification to the exact area of over heating before a fire develops.
Areas processing coal are also designated hazardous areas.
Signaline FT-R is deemed ‘simple aparatus’ meaning it is not at risk of being a source of ignition for the hazardous area.
However, the cable must be protected by an intrinsically safe barrier to ensure this safety.
Thankfully the integeration of the barriers is quite simple and makes Signaline FT-R safe for use in hazardous locations.
With vast knowledge of hazardous area signalling, and 30+ years of offering approved solutions, LGM was also called upon to provide hazardous area notification devices.
In this instance the UL, ATEX and IECEX approved D1XC1X05F was selected.
The D1X units employ the latest electronic technology and acoustic engineering in robust, marine grade, LM6 aluminium enclosures. Ensuring complete sound coverage and 360° warning illumination.

Recent catastrophic car park fires, such as the Liverpool Arena fire in 2017, have once again highlighted the essential requirement for having approved and efficient fire detection systems within car parks.
However, due to the difficult environmental conditions found in car parks it is not easy for many traditional fire detectors to perform well in these areas.
Signaline FT-EN is a new range of EN54 Part 28 approved linear heat detectors that are designed to mitigate such environmental issues. With a newly developed corrosive resistant outer coating Signaline FT-EN is impervious to difficult atmospheric conditions.
The Signaline FT-EN range was selected to protect the underground car park at a City Hall in the western region of the Netherlands.
With a quick alarm reaction and easy installation, the Signaline FT-78-EN, was the perfect solution.
Signaline FT-EN cables report to the Signaline LocatorPlus-EN controller which shows exact alarm location along the cable and is easily to integrated onto addressable fire system to report fire and faults. In this case an Apollo XP95 Loop was used and an addressable interfaced incorporated for power as well as monitoring fire and fault outputs from the LocatorPlus-EN.
Testing is also very easy with the Signaline FT-EN range as integrated test and fault buttons are in the FT-EOL-EN.
Rienk Leenstra, Aerocheck BV, commented ‘Setting up the system was very easy and testing with the EOL works like a charm’

As a global society we have all come to feel the impact of the Corona Virus. It is a very real threat but with the correct preventative measures the full impact can be avoided and the virus killed.
Like all businesses LGM has implemented special measures to ensure the safety of our employees and the continuation of business activities.
Therefore, we are pleased to say LGM Products is still open for business and here to fulfil orders, support technical queries and questions and continue supporting our clients.
To enable this LGM has –
· Enabled all sales, technical and finance teams to work from home. They have full access to all systems and therefore can continue to provide the level of support LGM is known for
· Warehouse operations have been altered so no member of staff are working in the same area and mostly on different floors of the building so zero contact between them is required
· Implemented a strict and enforced work-station disinfection schedule for those still in our facility
· All common areas that come into human contact, such as handrails, door handles, kitchens, bathrooms etc. are disinfected on a regular schedule
· All on site meetings have now been cancelled, postponed or moved to e-meetings
· Issued all employees with hand sanitizer and access to face masks
· Altered logistics operation procedures to avoid any colleagues coming into direct contact with external logistics personnel
While we are trying to limit the impact these new procedures have on service levels, we place the health and well being of our staff and community first and therefore this may lead to some disruptions or delays to customer orders. For this we apologise for any inconvenience, but also know that our customers understand that LGM’s first priority is to fight this threat.
LGM has always enjoyed great relationships with our customers and suppliers and we’re in this together as one team.
We will respond as the situation develops and will update our customers as necessary. We wish you all the very best and ask you to take similar special measures to stay safe and to stay healthy.

New for 2018, LGM Products is pleased to announce the arrival of the Signaline LocatorPlus.
LocatorPlus is a combined distance locator and monitor module compatible with all Signaline FT and FT-R linear heat detection cables.
Approved by UL, the LocatorPlus gives users instance alarm point location along the Signaline FT linear heat detection cable. However, unlike previous locator devices the LocatorPlus can then remotely report this location via the MODBUS output.
Furthermore, the LocatorPlus can offer location along 2 different zones of Signaline FT cable, each upto 3000m long.
But that is not all! The LocatorPlus also acts as a monitor module for the linear heat detection. It will report both fire and fault on either zone. These alarms are also indicated via an internal buzzer and LEDs on the LocatorPlus. The LocatorPlus is compatible with any conventional fire detection panel or can operate on an addressable interface. The LocatorPlus can also be used as the activation device on gas releasing panels
The LocatorPlus has two operating modes. Independent mode will report an alarm on either zone of cable independently. However, if set to interlocking the alarm relays are not triggered until both zones are in alarm. Thereby removing any risk of false alarms.

Designing an effective fire detection system for fuel storage tanks poses particular challenges.
Fuel storage tanks are located in hazardous areas, can be exposed to harsh weather, and often incorporate a ‘floating roof’ which means there is the added complication of a moving structure.
Signaline linear heat detection is an excellent method of protecting fuel tanks from fire and we are keen to meet any challenge faced by our customers.
Where a ‘floating roof’ is part of the design, Signaline’s Retractable Cable is required to connect the Signaline system to the top of the moving tank.
The Retractable Cable extends and retracts as the floating roof moves up and down ensuring that system integrity is maintained.
Normally, Signaline Retractable Cable is supplied with 3 metre flying tails for termination. But on a recent project in Saudi Arabia our customer required unusually long tails for the cable at both ends of the installation.
We were able to supply them with Retractable Cable which included 5 metre tails top and bottom – a bespoke solution which is not readily available on the market.
The Retractable Cable also comes with a Hytrel coating – a thermoplastic material which combines flexibility and excellent durable toughness to ensure that the cable will not be affected by UV light and hazardous gases.
If you are interested in how we can adapt retractable cable to suit your project requirements, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
