Special hazard suppression systems are often used to protect high-value electronic equipment and facilities where the protection is of the upmost importance. Gaseous agent suppression systems release clean agents that are used to protect the most important businesses and equipment. But how are these suppression systems different from the traditional water sprinkler systems? Let’s explore two of these suppression systems: dry chemical and INERGEN systems.
Dry Chemical Systems
Dry chemical fire suppression systems use dry chemical compounds that suppress the fires. These systems are easily installed in any industrial settings and offer excellent fire coverage. Dry chemicals are used to extinguish many different classifications of fires including A, ordinary combustibles; B combustible liquids; and C, electrical fires. These suppressants should be recharged after every use to ensure they are ready for future use. Dry chemical systems are both affordable and accessible when there is not a water supply available making them ideal for loading docks as well as inside your facility.
INERGEN fire suppression systems are a blend of naturally occurring gasses. These gasses include nitrogen, argon, and a small amount of carbon dioxide. INERGEN is made up of these gasses and blended into a mix of 50 percent argon, 42 percent nitrogen, and 8 percent CO2. These systems are highly effective at extinguishing fires and also preventing re-ignition without people getting hurt or your equipment getting damaged. These systems are installed by only a qualified fire suppression system installation company like Fireline. INERGEN systems are made of naturally occurring gasses, making this suppression system environmentally friendly. They are also certified as safe and clean for occupied spaces and medically evaluated to ensure heart rates and mental performance of the people exposed to them. Unlike many suppression systems, this system does not have to be located in close proximity to the fire and can be stored further away. When INERGEN gas is discharged it is a clear gas that allows everyone a safe exit from your facility.
There are many different types of fire suppression systems available on the market. For two of the best choose dry chemical and INERGEN suppression systems for your business. For more information or to have your system designed for your business, call Fireline!
