CO2 Suppression System

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colorless, odorless, and chemically inert gas that is both readily available and electrically non-conductive. It extinguishes fire primarily by lowering the level of oxygen that supports combustion in a protected area. This mechanism of fire suppression makes CO2 suppression systems highly effective, requiring minimal clean-up, but should be used in normally unoccupied hazard locations or otherwise avoided by personnel when discharged.

High & Low Pressure Carbon dioxide Fire Suppression Systems

High Pressure Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression Systems are recommended for hazards like semiconductor wet benches, control rooms and paint lines. Whatever the application, from cylinder to nozzle, each system is custom-designed for your specific fire hazard. High pressure fire suppression systems use individual storage cylinders- up to 100-lb capacity each- that can be manifold together for rapid simultaneous discharge. Cylinder valves can be opened automatically or manually, locally or remotely using electric, pneumatic or mechanical valve actuators.

Al-barrak Preferred Bulk Low Pressure Carbon Dioxide

Al-Barrak™ Preferred Bulk Low Pressure Carbon Dioxide Systems are for fire hazards requiring large amounts of extinguishing agent in a limited amount of space. A single bulk tank can store from 3/4 to 60 tons of carbon dioxide, which is maintained in a stand-by fire ready state allowing the system to provide effective distribution of agent on demand. The Liquid CO2 is stored in an ASME coded pressure vessel equipped with its own refrigeration system. The pressure within the vessel is maintained near 300 psi. Valve control is electro-pneumatic or manual. Each master and selector valve assembly consists of either, a ball or butterfly valve, a spring return pneumatic valve operator and a three-way electrically operated solenoid valve. A listed and approved releasing control panel is used to provide automatic detection and control.

AL-barrak™ Mini-bulk Low Pressure Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression Systems

With capacities of 800, 1000, and 1500 lb. mini-bulk tanks bridge the gap between high pressure bulk tanks. Its was developed to provide an alternative to man folding high pressure cylinders. The tanks are configured vertically to save valuable floor space and their design is accommodating: mini-bulk tanks can provide protection for total flood, local application hazards, hose reels, or custom designs like inserting or spurt systems. Each mini-bulk tank is equipped with a low cost, high efficiency, air cooled vapor compression unit. The refrigerant media is environmentally safe and is very efficient in this application. All system components are interchangeable between the mini-bulk system and the larger bulk storage tank system. The system control valves operate on 24 VDC, which is compatible with most approved releasing panels.
