INERT GAS

Argon Gas Extinguishing Inert gas systems are considered to be one of the most environmentally friendly ways of protecting areas from fire and Argus offers Argon suppression systems to suit many applications. Argon is especially suitable for extinguishing electrically generated fires and its neutral characteristics make it particularly apt for use within computer rooms and similar areas.

Argon is easily configured to suit the requirements of BS6266: 1992 for either space or in-cabinet protection. As a result of its ability to rapidly inert a space, Argon is suitable for extinguishing fires in most applications where a surface is involved. When discharged into an area, the oxygen content is reduced from its ambient atmospheric level of 21% to 12% and at this reduced level; fires in most flammable materials are extinguished in 30 to 45 seconds. Odorised and non-toxic for extra safety, the effect on humans at oxygen levels of 12% and 14% is minimal and medical research has shown that there are no short or long term influences on the body. Argon contains no carbon dioxide and its toxic atmosphere potential is therefore zero.
