Products & SystemsGas Extinguishing SystemsGAS

Used to extinguish electrical fires by releasing a concentration of gas within a particular room.

The gas extinguishing system is one of the ways of extinguishing the fire and is a system for extinguishing the fire with the gases used during the fire. This system extinguishes the fire in the event of a fire by spraying or evacuating the gases from the fire area. Gas extinguishing systems are generally used where especially sensitive or valuable equipment is located. For example, it can be used in places such as data centers, power plants, telecommunications, museum centers and archives, treatment plants, industrial enterprises. There are many different gas extinguishing systems, but the most common are FK-5-1-12, FM200, CO2 and inergen gases. The selection of the system is determined by the characteristics of the usage area and the fire risk. Gas extinguishing systems are an ideal solution for a variety of industrial, commercial and institutional application areas. Here are some areas where gas extinguishing systems are widely used:

Data centers: Data centers with a high risk of fire are protected by gas extinguishing systems. These systems can effectively extinguish fires without affecting sensitive electronic equipment.

Power plants: In power plants with high voltage equipment, gas extinguishing systems are used to extinguish fires quickly and effectively.

Industrial businesses: Fire risks in the chemical, oil, gas, metal and other industries can be reduced with gaseous extinguishing systems. These systems can reduce operating costs as well as extinguishing fires quickly and effectively.

Medical facilities: Gas extinguishing systems used in hospitals, clinics and laboratories ensure the effective extinguishing of fires and protect the safety of patients and employees.

Museums and archives: Where rare artifacts, antiques and other sensitive materials are found, the risk of fire can be reduced by using gaseous extinguishing systems.

Telecommunication centers: Telecommunication centers with telephone, internet and other communication infrastructures are protected by gas extinguishing systems.

Commercial buildings: Gas extinguishing systems reduce the fire risks of commercial buildings and ensure the safety of employees and customers.

Working Principle of Gas Extinguishing Systems

Gas extinguishing systems are extinguished by suffocating fires. Most fires burn using oxygen due to the burning of combustible materials. Gas extinguishing systems extinguish fires by suffocating fires. Gas extinguishing systems generally follow a three-step process:

Detection: Gas extinguishing systems detect fires detected by fire detection devices. Detection devices, the system is automatically activated in case of fire.

Discharge: The gas extinguishing system quickly discharges a predetermined gas or gas mixture into the fire area when a fire is detected. These gases extinguish the fire by reducing the amount of oxygen.

Extinguishing: The discharged gases extinguish the fire by consuming the oxygen of the combustible material in the fire area. Gas extinguishing systems are often preferred in places where electronic and sensitive equipment are located, as they extinguish fires without directly interfering with the combustible material.

Gas extinguishing systems use various types of gas. Which gas to use depends on the type of fire, the size of the fire area, the characteristics of the materials and equipment in the environment, and other factors. Halon, FM200, CO2 and inergen gases are among the gases frequently used in gas extinguishing systems.
