IG55 & IG541 Inert Gas Fire Suppressions Systems
Inert Gas Fire Suppression Systems
Cost-Effective Inert Gas Fire Suppression
Inert gas fire suppression systems are the safe, natural way to extinguish a fire.
IG-55 is a mixture of inert gases. It is made up of 50% Argon and with 50% Nitrogen. It is non-conducting, odourless, colourless, and flavourless. It is an integral part of one of the important inert gas fire suppression systems.
It is non-corrosive and can be used at normal temperatures with most materials. as nickel,
Discharge of the extinguishing agent is through special valves developed and approved by accredited, independent organizations. They provide for flexible installation for all triggering and release systems currently available in the market, allowing for combinations of several of them.
The system protects against accidental activation due to small leaks. They also provide for checking and maintenance of all critical elements in the fixed extinguishing system, at the time of commissioning and later for system maintenance. This helps avoid accidental discharge. Extinguishing concentration is usually achieved when oxygen concentration in the air is reduced from its normal level of 21% to lower than 15%, depending on the combustible materials.
IG-55 is stored in high-pressure cylinders in the form of compressed gas, thus space required for such cylinder storage depends on pressure and capacity.
IG541 fire suppression is a blend of naturally occurring gases; Nitrogen, Argon, and a small amount of carbon dioxide. It is made up of these three gases in concentrations of approximately 50% Argon 42% Nitrogen and 8% carbon dioxide.
IG541 is an effective fire suppression system that will quickly extinguish a fire and prevent re-ignition. The is no risk to people or of damage to equipment when engineered and installed by a qualified fire suppression systems installation company.
IG541 fire suppression also does not damage the Earth’s ozone layer as it is completely made up of naturally occurring, inert gases.
An IG541 system is certified as a safe and clean fire suppression system for spaces occupied by people. Evaluated by medical authorities around the world, this mix of inert gases maintains normal blood-oxygen levels. This ensures normal heart rate and mental performance remain to enable a safe escape during or after a system discharge.
The extinguishing agent is stored and released as a gas. When the system discharges the IG541 gas, it is clear, allowing a safe and visually unobstructed exit.
