About Gas Suppression System
It is rather a bad idea to do that. In areas with electricals, art, delicate machines, water can be dangerous than the fire itself. This is because the data in the server is usually more expensive than the server. Therefore, either if the art piece or data gets damaged, it would result in immeasurable losses.
It is rather interesting. This system is generally used in concealed rooms with many detectors placed in different spaces. Each detector constantly monitors the room for signs of fire. As soon as the fire is detected, an alarm is raised to the personnel to evacuate the entire room. Popularly it releases a gas like Novec, Clean Agent, or Co2 in the enclosed set-up. Immediately thereafter, oxygen in the room reduces to a level where the fire is extinguished. However, gas does not affect living beings. But significantly, all the delicate or critical items remain untouched and unharmed by fire or water.
There are two principles used which are as follows:
1) Total Flooding Principle: The Gas Suppression System is used in an enclosed room or isolated location.
2) Local Application Principle: The Gas Suppression System is directly applied to the fire, immediately on the fire-affected area. There are no physical barriers present as in the case of the total flooding principle.
The prime advantage is that it is prompt. In addition to this, it does not have any smell, taste or colour and is environment friendly. Significantly, it is easy maintenance and occupies less space.
The other clean agent Fire Suppression Systems are :
1) Argon Gas Suppression System or Argon Clean Agent Systems.
2) FM 200 Clean Agent Systems
3) Novec 1230 Clean Agent Systems or Novec Fire Protection System
4) FE-13 Clean Agent Systems
5) Carbon Dioxide CO2 Clean Agent Systems or CO2 Total Flooding System

Gas Suppression System
Fire Protection Gas Suppression System or Automatic Fire Suppression System is relatively a new technology in India. It uses gas to extinguish fire versus the conventional method of using water. This puts out the fire within a minute, automatically. Check out some frequently asked questions.know More
