Using innovative iFLOW delivery technology, the INERGEN® 300-Bar Clean-Agent Fire Suppression System provides a regulated agent discharge into the protected hazard area.
INERGEN agent is composed of naturally-occurring gases found in the air we breathe. Unlike other inert gas agents, INERGEN agent includes a small percentage of carbon dioxide which enhances its ability to sustain life in a reduced oxygen atmosphere.
INERGEN agent is nontoxic, does not produce corrosive decomposition products when exposed to fire and is designed to protect valuable or sensitive assets that could be damaged by conventional agents. When discharged, it will not produce a fog, so escape routes will remain visible. And in the aftermath of an incident, the agent simply returns to the atmosphere in its natural state causing no environmental impact.
During a typical inert gas system discharge, peak pressure and flow spikes occur. It is these peaks that are used to determine the pipe size specification and venting requirements. The iFLOW system reduces pressure spikes in the distribution pipe network during discharge. This allows for the use of smaller diameter, lower pressure-rated piping and reduced pressure relief venting requirements. An enhancement to the proven agent technology, the innovative iFLOW technology is based on three main elements:
