• Refineries
• Chemical Plants (Ammonia, Ethylene)
• Hydrogen Gas Generators
• Hydrogen Fuel Cell Production
• Hydrogen Fueling Stations
• Hydrogen Test Facilities
• Rocket Launch Sites
• Merchant Hydrogen Manufacturing Plants

The FL500-H2 shares many of the same features as the standard FL500 UV/IR Flame Detector:

• Three LED indicators for alarm, fault, and normal operating conditions
• Field of view up to 130°
• Response times < 3 seconds
