Carbon Dioxide is an effective fire extinguishing agent. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a colorless, odorless, and electrically non-conductive gas. Since CO2 is naturally found in the atmosphere, there is no environmental impact and it is environmentally preferred. CO2 suppresses a fire by forming a blanket of heavy gas that absorbs heat from the fire, reducing the oxygen content to a point where combustion cannot occur.
CO2 is an acceptable Halon 1301 alternative. There are two types of systems:
– Total Flooding System, which quickly extinguishes both surface and deep seated fire hazards by discharging the agent into an enclosed volume.
– Local Application System, which is used when the hazard is non-enclosable. These sytems protect a two- or three-dimensional hazard by discharging the carbon dioxide directly on the burning material.
BFPE International maintains a stock of CO2. In the event you have a discharge, we are able to recharge your system so that you are able to resume business with minimal interruption.
