What is CO2 Fire Suppression?

This is the most efficient of all fire suppression systems on the market today.  It suppresses a fire  by cooling and asphyxiating the fire, thus removing the essential oxygen and heat it needs.

CO2 fire suppression systems are an ideal solution for local fire suppression applications.  This agent is suitable for both local applications as well as total flooding applications.

The CO2 fire suppression agent is one of the oldest and most effective fire fighting solutions used within this industry. 

Applying safe and correct designs, including all safety procedures, this fire suppression system is the most effective solution available for most applications.

CO2 fire suppression systems rapidly cool the risk within the first minute of discharge, then  an extended discharge removes oxygen and effectively INERTS the protected risk. 

When CO2 systems are activated, the agent becomes white as it condensates in the warmer protected environment.  The condensation clears overtime and the CO2 gas becomes invisible.  Due to the colourness and odourless charactoristics of the gas, it is essential add odourisers to the discharge pipe work so that the agent is scented as the CO@ system discharges into the risk.

Advantages of using CO2 are :-

  • Non-corrosive
  • Non Conductive
  • Zero Ozone Depletion
  • Zero Global Warming (as fire suppression CO2 is nor taken from a fossil fuel)
  • Easily distributed
  • CO2 can be used as a common bank arrangement with diverter/distribution valves directing it to multiple enclosures
