Gas Base Fire Suppression System

There are more benefits to Clean Agent and CO2 suppression than putting out fires.

High-hazard areas require specialized fire protection systems — systems that not only extinguish the fire, but protect your facility from collateral and environmental damage as well.

FM-200 and NOVEC-1230 Gas: -

These are Clean Agent Gases and they are colourless, odourless, electrically non-conductive and suppresses fire by interrupting the combustion process and removing heat energy from the fire to the extent that the combustion process cannot sustain itself.

Benefits of Clean Agents: -

  • Extinguishes the fires fast and effectively – before any damage is done to your valued assets.
  • Atmospheric lifetime of approximately 34.2 Years for FM-200 and 5 days for Novec-1230.
  • Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) of Zero.
  • No post-fire residues to clean up.
  • No damage to protected equipment.
  • Is electrically non-conductive.
  • Safe for use in a wide range of normally occupied hazard areas.
  • The most widely accepted clean agent in the world.

 

FM-200 & NOVEC-1230 Worldwide Applications: -
  • Telecommunication Facilities
  • Computer Operations
  • Control Rooms
  • Shipboard (Marine) Systems
  • Rare Book Libraries
  • Universities and Museums
  • Art Galleries
  • Record & Storage Facilities
  • Petrochemical Installations
  • Pharmaceutical & Medical Facilities
  • Electronics & Data Processing Equipment.

 

CO2Gas: -

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a low cost, colourless, odourless and chemically inert gas that is both readily available and electrically non-conductive. It extinguishes fire primarily by lowering the level of oxygen that supports combustion in a protected area. This mechanism of fire suppression makes CO2 suppression systems highly effective, requiring minimal clean-up, but should be used in normally unoccupied hazard locations or otherwise avoided by personnel when discharged.

There are two type of Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression System, Low pressure systems and equipment are best suited for applications where large quantities of CO2 are needed. High pressure systems are recommended for smaller hazards or where space is limited.

NOTE: - Both Low Pressure CO2 and High Pressure CO2 systems are equally effective at fighting fires. Neither one is better than the other in terms of extinguishment.

 

Benefits of CO2: -
  • Extinguishes the fires fast and effectively – before any damage is done to your valued assets.
  • No post-fire residues to clean up.
  • No damage to protected equipment.
  • Is electrically non-conductive.
  • Is effectively extinguishes fire of flammable and combustible materials.
  • Low cost and easily available for refilling.
