Introduction

For over 70 years, Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions has been a preferred supplier of gaseous fire suppression systems to the Marine industry. Today, our inert and chemical gaseous fire suppression systems offer a long term, sustainable solution for protecting a wide range of areas within a ship such as “Critical Equipment Rooms” involving switchboards, transformer, engine control, pumps etc.

We provide three types of gaseous fire suppression for the marine industry. These are INERGEN® inert gas and Novec 1230 and CO2 chemical gases.  All these gases have one thing in common in that they will never be re-classified as “hazardous waste” nor require special inspection procedures under the EU’s “F” Gas Regulations.

Each type of gaseous fire suppression system has its own unique features and benefits that make them ideal for fighting fires in specific areas and working environments. For example, the small footprint area of Novec 1230 is ideally suited as a simple “Stand-Alone” suppression system for small, restricted space working areas. 

INERGEN® inert gas is closer to natural air than any other gaseous fire suppression system, and has the propensity to remain within the protected enclosure rather than leak out. Therefore, the importance of room integrity to prevent agent leakage is not as vital as it is for chemical agents. This feature provides INERGEN with unique, superior holding times without extensive and costly room sealing or dedicated extract ducting. INERGEN can also protect a number of different areas from one central cylinder storage area.

The different types of systems available are:

Inergen Premier System

INERGEN®

INERGEN® gaseous fire suppression systems are usually specified by the Naval Armed Forces to protect sensitive areas within fighting ships that are classified as “Non Immediate Evacuation”...more

novec 1230

Novec 1230

Novec1230 is supplied in lightweight cylinders with a small footprint that requires minimal storage space.  Novec 1230 fluid has a boiling point of 49 degrees C and therefore exists as a liquid at room temperature...more

co2 system

CO2

Carbon Dioxide is the original "clean" agent that is traditionally used for marine applications to suppresses fires in unmanned areas...more
