Inert Gas and CO2 fire suppression Systems

Inert Gas and CO2 fire suppression Systems

The Basic Premise
The idea behind Ceasefire Inert Gas Fire System is to reduce the amount of oxygen present in the area where the fire breaks out. This is important because fires need oxygen in order to spread. Remove this vital element and the fire will be easier to contain.

While the oxygen level is lowered, the system does not eliminate oxygen from the space altogether. There is still enough Oxygen present to support proper breathing, as anyone in the immediate area moves along the escape route and exits the room.

What gases are used?
Ceasefire Inert Gas Suppression Systems use the following gases that reduce the concentration of Oxygen in the fire zone to kill fires.

These included:
CF1: CO2 (100%)
CF100: Nitrogen (100%)
CF541: A blend of Nitrogen(50%) + Argon(40%) + C02(10%)
CF01: Argon (100%)
CF55: A mix of Argon(50%) + Nitrogen(50%)

These inert gases are naturally occurring gases. We are surrounded by these gases. These gases reduce concentration of oxygen in the given space and extinguishes fire.

How is the Gas Deployed?
The Ceasefire Gaseous Fire Suppression systems can be configured for unique gas discharge options. Typically class “C” electrical fires require a minimum concentration while class “B” flammable liquid fires require a higher concentration or lowering of oxygen levels to put the fire out. Settling on the right approach depends on the type of environment in which the system will be used.

Absolutely safe on Environment: The system uses inert / non-reactive gases as the extinguishing agent and hence is completely environment friendly.

Electronics friendly: Inert gases leave no residue behind and is completely safe on electronics.

Uniform Discharge Flow: The system’s constant pressure regulation feature ensures discharge of the agent gases at uniform pressure throughout the operation, adding to the system’s effectiveness.

Real Time Design Support: Ceasefire in-house Design Cell offers end-to-end design support to customise the system for any kind of a premises.

Scalable: The system is scalable to a 240 cylinder installation for extremely high volume protection.

Zone wise Mechanical Actuation: In case of safeguarding a multi-zone premises, the system has the feature to actuate each zone mechanically. Hence ensuring localised protection.

Minimum Piping: Special cylinder valves minimise the need for piping and additional devices in the actuation line.

VDS Approved System: The Ceasefire Inert Gas Suppression Systems are completely VDS approved systems.
