CO2 Fire Suppression Systems

CARBON DIOXIDE, is the most effective and versatile gas for the suppression of a wide range of types of fires. So, it is highly customizable according to the risk being protected. The necessary security measures must be considered in case of areas normally occupied by people.

Key features:

VdS Approved.
Compact valve technology: allows using the standard cylinder transportation safety cap, avoids using special caps and adapters.
Direct release circuit: outlet connection to activate the slave cylinders from the master valve, eliminating the pilot cylinder and relief screw (except selector valve configuration).
Maintenance at its safest: all components may be assembled and disassembled whilst under pressure, this includes: pressure gauge, pneumatic release, manual release and solenoid valve.
Discharge-free commissioning system: whilst performing system functional testing during commissioning, the release circuit can be disconnected from the valves avoiding any accidental discharge and allow easy testing.
Standing strong and secure: stand alone or wall mounted brackets with several configurations available, adapting the system to the room space.
Flexible and resistant: all release and discharge hoses take into account the best balance between flexibility and durability, allowing easy installation and strength to withstand the pass of time.
Spare-parts free: upon discharge or during maintenance, no rupture disks, nor special components must be replaced. Reducing down-time and lowering warehousing costs.
Differential pressure actuation: allows using the same pressure from the cylinder to maintain the valve closed, reducing dramatically leakage problems even with high temperature fluctuations.
Optimized standardization of systems: common components between systems reduces quantities needed hence saving on warehousing costs and allowing fast delivery to clients locally.

Mechanism and application areas:

CO2 Systems suppress fires by displacing oxygen content in the atmosphere, reducing oxygen concentration from 21% to 15% and having a cooling effect by removing sufficient heat from the fire.

Application Areas:
Marine industries: engine rooms, paint lockers, vehicle transport areas on cargo vessels, flammable liquid storage areas.
Heavy industries: rolling mill, control rooms, sheet printing, particle board chippers, cable trays, electrical room, motor control centres, nuclear power facilities, waste storage facilities.
