Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression System: Carbon dioxide extinguishes the fire by reducing the concentration of 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 colourless, odourless, 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 the fire by cooling.
- 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.
-Power transfer chambers
-Power generation sets
-Cable and installation galleries
-Electrical distribution rooms / centers
-Flammable liquid storage areas
