Aspirating Smoke Detection is based around a central detection unit which continually draws air through a network of small and unobtrusive pipes. As the air moves through the sampling chamber, the detection unit uses a Nephelometer to detect the presence of smoke particles by measuring the amount of light that is scattered ( or reflected ) by smoke particles in the chamber.
Aspirating smoke detectors are highly sensitive, and can detect smoke even before it is visible to the human eye. This provides a very early warning of an outbreak of fire, and prompts investigation at the earliest smouldering stage of a fire, when it can easily be dealt with.
