Carbon-dioxide System

Carbondioxide System

Carbondioxide was the first gas to be used as a fire extinguishing agent. It is a chemically-inert, electrically non-conductive and odorless gas. A Carbondioxide system includes detectors, a control unit, agent storage cylinders, piping and discharge nozzles. Carbondioxide extinguishes fires by reducing Oxygen levels to stop combustion. Carbondioxide systems have three settings: They can completely flood hazard areas (for unoccupied areas), protect processing and machinery areas, or be manually operable as a hand-hose system in emergency situations. In each of these cases, the duration and rate of agent discharge are customized.

Applications:

  • Combustible Liquids
  • Liquefied Gases
  • Electrical Equipment
  • Smoldering Fires
  • Power generation
  • Cable Tunnels
  • Transformers
