Since its European introduction in 2003, Fike’s innovative ProInert® has become widely accepted as one of the best performing, most cost-effective, and environmentally friendly inert gas fire extinguishing systems. Since 2009 this same technology is available in the United States, and other parts of the world requiring UL and FM approval.
ProInert offers all the benefits of other inert gas systems with several significant design improvements – enhancements that not only mean a superior product, but savings to your bottom line! Most inert gas systems discharge from the nozzle into the protected space with a high surge flow rate, creating a hazardous pressure peak. These systems use pressure reducers further down the pipe network in order to mitigate safety issues, but also require both high-pressure and low-pressure piping.
Because of its unique patented valve assembly, the ProInert agent enters the protected room within the industry required 60 seconds, but at a steady flow rate — preventing destructive turbulence from occurring. This constant flow rate means you can use small-diameter, low pressure (and less expensive) piping from the inert gas container, all the way to the nozzle. And the necessary venting area is much smaller – reducing installation costs by as much as 60% on venting hardware. By using larger tanks, Pro-Inert can save up to 50% of the space required by other manufacturers. ProInert tanks can be filled with IG-55 or IG-541.
