FIRE PREVENTION WITH OXYGEN REDUCTION

 

ENSURING ZERO RISK OF FIRE DAMAGE IN CRICTAL INDOOR FACILITIES

CA fire prevention ensures that there is zero risk of fire damage in critical indoor facilities by adding nitrogen to the atmosphere. Rather than putting a fire out once it has started, it is now possible to prevent the fire from occurring in the first place. No fire damage and as importantly no water, smoke or other secondary damages can occur.

Combustion requires fuel, an ignition source and oxygen. Without one of these elements fire can be prevented or extinguished. The Gas At Site CA Fire Prevention system is a turnkey solution which controls the oxygen level in the room. The oxygen in the room is reduced to less than the normal 21% in atmosphere and to just below the critical level. The critical level is the level of oxygen required for flammable material to burn. At oxygen levels below the critical level it is impossible for combustion to commence.

Generally, the critical oxygen level which will not allow a fire to start will still support human life. Different flammable materials have different critical levels and can be compensated for.

 

 

The room in the embedded video is controlled at 13% oxygen rather than air at sea level where the air is at 21% oxygen . As you can see using an oxy-acetylene torch (which is one of the hottest flames around) the demonstration manages to char only the uppermost single sheet of news print.

This is the basis on which the Gas At Site fire prevention system operates. An on-site nitrogen generator, with fail safe positive feed-back monitoring, displaces some of the oxygen in the air to produce a comfortable human-breathable atmosphere, in which nothing can ignite or burn. The atmosphere inside the facility is completely safe for people.
