Carbon Dioxide (CO2)Fire Suppression System in Pakistan

Carbon dioxide extinguishes the fire by reducing the concentration of a fuel in the oxygen and / or gas phase in the air to the point where it will stop.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) extinguishes a fire by decreasing the concentration of reactants to the limits which make the burning impossible. Carbon dioxide – is colorless, odorless, non conducting electricity, inert gas suitable for fire extinguishing.
Carbon dioxide reduces the burning concentration and/or any gaseous substances containing in oxygen to inflammability limit and extinguishes fire by cooling.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2)Fire Suppression Systems

Advantages

  • Ozone depletion potential is zero
  • -Physically extinguishes fire
  • -Used for local facilities
  • -Don’t recommend to use in areas with people existing.
  • -Low cost of refilling
  • -Discharge time is 60-120 seconds (30seconds for local systems) Low pressure systems.
  • -low pressured carbon dioxide systems are used on the total volume executions required high quantity extinguishers.
  • -High pressure systems: high pressured carbon dioxide systems are used on both total volume protection and local protection executions.

Applications

-Power transfer chambers
-Power generation sets
-Engine rooms
-Recording rooms
-Cable and installation galleries
-Electrical distribution rooms / centers
-Computer rooms
-Flammable liquid storage areas
-Painting cabinets
-Archives
-printing houses
-Industrial Ovens
