Gas Fire Suppression

Total flooding systems extinguish fires by rapidly discharging CO2 into an enclosed volume to create an atmosphere that is incapable of supporting combustion. The agent mixes homogeneously in the risk area to generate a CO2 concentration by volume of at least 34%. This concentration of CO2 presents a serious hazard to personnel and under no circumstances should CO2 be released into areas that may be manned at the time of discharge.

Total flood CO2 systems are ideal for unmanned applications such as transformer rooms, remote switch rooms, generators and archives. All systems should be installed with safety systems in place to prevent the inadvertent release of agent into occupied spaces.
