GreCon Limited

The leading provider of Fire Protection and Industrial Measurement systems across UK & Ireland.

Fire Protection for the Recycling Industry

RiverRidge operates Northern Ireland’s largest integrated waste management company. The company has undergone substantial investment to transform it from a small skip hire and landfill business to the fully integrated waste recovery operation it is today.

GreCon’s relationship with RiverRidge started in 2014, protecting the shredding process at both Portadown and Garvagh sites. 

The recycling process carries inherent risks from fire. GreCon’s comprehensive range of highly sensitive detectors can detect a range of ignition sources such as sparks, hot and glowing particles, and can deal with the challenges posed by a range of temperature and ambient lighting conditions.

The importance of spark detection and extinguishing systems

In many industries, where bulk materials are processed, fires and dust explosions occur regularly with far-reaching consequences.
Interruptions of the production process can lead to substantial downtime and follow up costs, in addition to injury and property damage. Our Spark Detection and Extinguishing System affords you protection via a special technique; detection and automatic extinguishment of an ignition source within milliseconds before a fire can start.
