Fire and explosion protection with CO2

Fire and explosion protection with CO2

In situations where fire and explosion protection with CO2 is required, the CO2 is used as an inert gas to maintain a non-explosive or non-flammable atmosphere. The main purpose of dosing with CO2 as an inert gas for fire and explosion protection is to create a low oxygen gas atmosphere in areas containing flammable or explosive goods where there is a risk of an explosion or fire. CO2 is also used to extinguish fire by lowering the oxygen level to a point where no fire is possible.

Fire extinguishing with CO2

Inert gases are used to eliminate ventilation and fire threats in coal mines. The main purpose of fire extinguishing with CO2 is to create a low oxygen gas atmosphere around the fire to prevent the combustion of flammable materials and, in the case of an explosive mixture of gases, to neutralise the explosive atmosphere.

Advantages of fire and explosion protection with CO2 and fire extinguishing with CO2

The main advantages of fire and explosion protection with CO2, and fire extinguishing with CO2 as an inert gas are:

  • Can be used in unreachable areas
  • Increases employee safety
  • The inertion system can work in emergencies, or permanently as a safety measure
  • Fire extinguishing with CO2leaves no residues, unlike other fire extinguishing agents
