An Inergen Fire Suppression system uses the naturally occurring gases nitrogen, argon, and carbon dioxide to put out a fire. It is a clean agent system that can be used in applications where water is not suitable for fire protection.
How Does Inergen Work?
Inergen systems work by releasing an agent that is a combination of nitrogen, argon, and carbon dioxide on the surface of the fire. This agent floods the area, suppressing the fire by lowering the amount of oxygen present so combustion cannot occur.
Applications for Inergen Systems
Inergen systems may be used in many applications. They are especially useful for facilities where water would cause damage or be harmful to the equipment in the area. Some applications where Inergen systems may be found include:
- Computer Rooms
- Telecommunications Facilities
- Data Centers
- Power Generation Facilities
- Petrochemical and Gas Applications
Benefits of Inergen
There are numerous benefits to using Inergen fire suppression. Since Inergen systems use naturally occurring gases, they are not harmful to the environment like some other forms of fire protection. Also, Inergen is safe to use in occupied places because the mixture of gases present will still allow a person to breathe even when the oxygen levels are reduced. Inergen can be used in many applications because it is effective on Class A, B, and C fires. It is electrically non-conducive, leaves no residue behind, has zero ozone depletion potential, and zero global warming potential. In addition, Inergen systems do not take up valuable floor space. The cylinders for this system can be placed remotely from the area that is being protected.
