Make safety a priority with an indirect high-pressure (IHP) CO2 system. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colorless, odorless, electrically non-conductive gas that is highly effective at suppressing a wide variety of Class A, B, and C fires.
In areas with delicate electronic equipment, such as server rooms and data rooms, and storage areas with potentially combustible materials, sprinkler systems are not the ideal extinguishing agent. Typically, in those environments with valuable machinery and lots of people working you will find clean agent fire suppression systems. These use manufactured, inert gasses to suppress fires. However, in areas with no building personnel like engine rooms, power stations, and around large industrial machines, CO2 fire suppression systems may be the most effective fire protection system.
The CO2 can be used to concentrate suppression on a single component or piece of equipment, such as an EDM Machine.
CO2 is the only gaseous agent that can be applied locally in this way.
1. High-pressure spun steel cylinders (known as HPCO2 suppression systems)
2. Low-pressure light wall refrigerated tanks (known as LPCO2 suppression systems)
