Mission Critical Equipment Requires Special Fire Suppression Considerations
Many fire suppression systems can damage or destroy the very equipment they're meant to protect. Sensitive computer, electronic and telecommunications equipment - like that found in data centers, telecommunication facilities and other tech businesses - require special fire suppression considerations and advanced care. If your building houses mission critical electronics and you have limited space, consider a CLEAN AGENT (FM-200, HFC-125, NOVEC) as a halon alternative to waterless fire suppression system that is specifically designed to protect sensitive computer, electronics and telecommunications equipment.
How Clean Agent Works
Clean agents fire suppression system are designed specifically to protect sensitive electronic equipment. They stop fires fast using a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms. Clean agent systems typically discharges gas directly onto the surface of combustible materials. Heat is absorbed from the surface of the burning material(s), thereby lowering the material's temperature below the ignition point.
Clean agents deploys quickly and cleanly - it won't leave behind oily residue, particulate or water. They are one of the fastest suppression systems available; its extinguishing levels are typically reached in ten seconds or less. This extreme speed results in less damage, lower repair costs and shorter downtime - not to mention a greater window of safety for any people that may be involved in the fire.
Typical Customers Using Clean Agent Systems
Clean agents can be safely used where people are working and present. It is actually used as a propellant in pharmaceutical inhalers that dispense asthma medication! Common environments using clean agents for fire suppression are businesses, government buildings, universities, hospitals, museums and many others. Worldwide, over 100,000 systems have been installed to date. The clean agents are is stored in cylinders as liquid. Pressurization is achieved using nitrogen which saves huge amounts of storage space. Clean agent takes up to seven times less storage space than systems based on CO2 and inert gases. When discharged, the liquid flows through a network of piping into the protected area where it vaporizes.
