CO2 is able to suppress fires by eliminating the oxygen that the fire requires to burn. CO2 fire suppression systems are most commonly used in areas that feature equipment and are absent of personnel, since CO2 is toxic to humans even at low concentrations. Most CO2 suppression systems are designed to be "total flooding" suppression systems, allowing for the entire room to be filled with sufficient levels of CO2.
Using CO2 has its advantages when compared with other "total flooding" suppression systems - it is a naturally occurring gas that doesn't require manufacturing, and is less expensive than other fire-extinguishing agents.
CO2 is an inert gas, meaning that it does not react when in contact with metals or plastics, causing no further damage to the area - unlike a traditional water-based sprinkler system. CO2 is also a fantastic choice for fire suppression systems in industrial rooms, such as engine rooms, industrial generators, and flammable liquid storage areas, as these areas are not staffed, making CO2 not only a safe choice, but also cost-effective.
Sensitive electronics also benefit from the use of CO2 in a total flooding suppression system due to the fact that CO2 leaves no residue behind after it has dissipated, allowing work to continue as soon as the CO2 concentrations have reduced to a safe level.
Control Fire Systems makes it easy for you to switch to a CO2-based suppression system from a dated Halon or other HFC system.
In order for us to purchase your old suppression agents, we must first determine two things:
Using this basic information, we will determine a purchase value using the current commodity price of the suppression agents you are selling us. We will then generate a purchase order.
Next, we will arrange for the transportation and shipping of your cylinders to our facility. Your shipping company will need MSDS and dangerous goods placards for the goods being shipped, both of which we will supply!
Once we receive your old suppression agent, we will provide you with detailed weight information within 72 hours (total weight of tank - tare weight & nitrogen loss = agent weight received). The last step is for you to send us an invoice in order for us to provide payment.
