Milpitas, California, Dec. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sierra Monitor Corporation (OTCBQ:SRMC), a global leader in flame and gas detection solutions for 40 years, today announces the availability of a new line of flame detection products. The new 39xx series flame detectors meet or exceed customer expectations as they go well beyond industry performance standards, making Sierra Monitor one of the top choices in the flame detection worldwide. With new UV, UV/IR, and Multi-Spectrum Infrared models, Sierra Monitor has your flame detection needs covered.

  • UV/IR model 3986 – Technology with a quick response time as low as 50 milliseconds and high false alarm immunity. This model is one of the most universal flame detectors for detecting visible and non-visible fires. Two options are available; one for hydrocarbon-based fire and one for non-hydrocarbon-based fire. 
  • Multi-IR model 3976 – With the ability to monitor five IR bands, it has a quick response time as fast as 260 milliseconds and the highest false alarm immunity with a longer detection range. Its Fire Event Analysis (FEA) algorithm enables it to have excellent discrimination between real fires and non-fire signals which makes it one of the best on the market.  
  • UV model 3966 – Technology with the quickest response time as low as 15 milliseconds, and is available in a standard as well as high temperature model rated to +125°C. The high-temp model is ideal for turbine enclosures to detect any visible hydrocarbon and non-hydrocarbon fires.          

The 39xx series flame detectors also have outstanding indoor and outdoor accountability to meet any application needs.

“I am beyond excited about our new flame detectors – we have been working on offering an improved flame detection solution for a long time, and the 39xx series does not disappoint. All three models have something unique and attractive about them making them well suited for diverse environments and applications,” said Jonathan Breede, Flame and Gas Detection Product Manager for Sierra Monitor Corporation. 

SMC’s flame detectors are fully certified and available today.  For more information about 39xx series products, please visit:, or contact your local Sierra Monitor representative.
