Carbon Dioxide is the original "clean" agent that suppresses fire without leaving behind an agent to damage sensitive equipment, and because there is no agent to clean up, you are back in business faster. Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions offer both High and Low pressure systems.

Carbon Dioxide is a plentiful, non-corrosive gas that does not support combustion nor react with most substances. It is commonly compressed to the liquid state for storage in high pressure cylinders or  low pressure bulk storage tanks. Upon release, it discharges under its own pressure giving the appearance of steam as its low temperature crystallises water in the air.

For fire suppression purposes, the discharge is designed to raise the carbon dioxide concentration in the hazard. This removes the free oxygen which supports combustion*, and results in fire extinguishment.

The resultant lack of free oxygen dictates that total flooding hazards are evacuated immediately, prior to system discharge and carbon dioxide atmospheres produced by local application discharge must be avoided by personnel until the area has been vented and declared safe to return to work.
