INERT GAS FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS

Inert gas fire suppression Systems utilize natural inert gases like Nitrogen, Argon, and/or mixture of the inert gases. Inert gas systems will extinguish fire by reducing the oxygen concentrations in the enclosure, and are suitable to be used for Class A, B and C Fire Hazards.

The Extinguishing Agents are stored in high pressure cylinders at 200 bar (2900 Psi) and 300 bar (4350 Psi) in sizes of 80 Lit and 140 Liters. The containers are equipped with the SIG-200 or SIG-300 Valves. The extinguishing agent cylinders are connected to a manifold by a Discharge Pressure Regulator. The discharge pressure regulator has a maximum outlet pressure of 60 bars (870 Psi) which will reduce the cost of piping and installation. Various types of actuators are available for the SIG Valves.

 

Inert gas agent’s compositions are as follows:

o   IG-01 is 99.9% Argon

o   IG-100 is 99.9% Nitrogen

o   IG-55 is 50% ± 5% Argon and 50% ± 5% Nitrogen

o   IG-541 is 52% ± 4% Nitrogen, 40% ± 4% Argon and 8.5% ± 0.5%

Contrary to Halocarbon clean agents, Inert gases have no residue and by products when exposed to fire. Inert Gasses have 0 GWP (Global Warming Potential), 0 ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and are safe to be used in occupied areas as per NFPA 2001 Guide lines.

The inert gas systems can have long pipe runs to the protected space and can have a bank of cylinders protecting multiple enclosures by use of directional valves. Directional Valves are available from ½” (DN15) to 3” (DN 80).
