CO2 Systems

For quicker and more effective penetration into the hazard area, carbon dioxide systems are ideal because of their higher ratio of expansion. With the discharge the percentage of oxygen in the hazard area is reduced below combustion limits and thereby controlling the fire. Carbon Dioxide extinguishers store the suppression agents in high pressure cylinders and also in low pressure tanks. Besides its three dimensional penetration capabilities, carbon dioxide the 4 to 6 inches of snow produced with discharge, has the ability to reduce the ambient temperature which acts as a secondary control on fire by preventing re-ignition.
