CARBON DIOXIDE (Co2)
CO2 has long been recognized as an effective suppression agent in non-occupied environments, especially effective for local application protection of equipment. CO2 is an environmentally friendly, colorless, odorless, electrically non-conductive agent that continues to be used heavily in industrial applications.
The fire suppression agent works by removing oxygen from the environment of discharge, so precautions must be taken to minimize any exposure to life. The system discharges at high or low pressure, depending on system application and design. Carbon dioxide gas has a high rate of expansion which allows it to work fast. When applied to a fire, CO2 provides a heavy blanket of gas that reduces the oxygen level to a point where combustion cannot occur. Since carbon dioxide is a gas, there is no clean-up associated with a system discharge — which means minimal business interruption.
