Gaseous Systems

Our scope includes provision of inert and chemical gas systems encompassing the following disciplines:

  • Design – utilising proprietary and 3D modelling
  • Specification – advising client on appropriate materials, equipment and layouts in accordance with project and international standards
  • Build – skid build and testing in our purpose built workshops
  • Commissioning – utilising our onshore and offshore specialist safely technicians
  • Service- client peace of mind that we deliver and stand by our systems

We can engineer our gaseous suppression systems for every type of risk

Our engineers are able to specify key requirements within the gaseous suppression system to cope with every type of risk situation which exists onshore and offshore, within project and international standards. This will include such critical aspects as selection of gas type, cylinder/manifold configuration within skid, central banking or dedicated systems, main shot only or main and reserve, piping specification, material specifications, integrity testing, detection, alarm and actuation requirements.

This attention to detail ensures that out client receive the most efficient, reliable and cost-effective gaseous suppression system designed to stand the test of time with minimal servicing.

INERGEN®

INERGEN® is an inert fire suppression agent that has remained the longest serving Halon replacement on the market to date. INERGEN®’s unique blend of Nitrogen, Argon and Carbon Dioxide ensures that fires and rapidly extinguished whilst the CO2 contained within INERGEN® decreases cardiac stress and maintains arterial blood oxygenation. As a result, INERGEN® provides a safe environment for any person trapped within the incident area.

Key features of INERGEN® include:

  • Can be remotely located up to 100 metres from the fire risk
  • Cylinders central banking can be used to protect multiple risk areas and reduce space
  • Dedicated extract ducting is not required
  • INERGEN® gas is extremely economic – refill costs are low
  • Has been fully tested on human beings and medically approved

3MTMNovecTM 1230

3MTMNovecTM 1230 is the latest generation of chemical based gaseous suppression systems to bring significant improvement to human safety and environmental responsibility. 3MTMNovecTM 1230 has zero ozone depleting potential of 1 combined with an atmospheric lifetime of less than 5 days. It needs minimum storage space and vaporises on discharge to provide swift flame knock down. Because 3MTMNovecTM 1230 is classed as a “Clean” agent and can be easily transported, it is ideally suited for the protection of a variety of offshore and onshore “Business Critical” areas.

Du PontTMFM200® Systems

Du PontTMFM200® is one of the longest serving chemical based fire suppression agents on the market. It is permissible for use within normally occupied areas and is suitable for such applications as computer rooms, control rooms and switchgear rooms. It has a small cylinder footprint and requires minimal space for cylinder storage whilst providing cost effective protection in accordance with present international standards.

Carbon Dioxide Systems

CO2 is the original versatile “Clean” agent that has been traditionally specified for use in unmanned areas to suppress Class A, B and C fires involving flammable liquids and the majority of solid combustible materials. We can provide a wide range of high or low pressure CO2 systems designed for both local and total flooding applications, from turbine protection to high value electrical equipment protection. Its worldwide availability also ensures that cylinder gas refills remain relatively low and therefore highly economic to maintain.

Agonite® Systems

Agonite® is an internationally approved blend of inert suppression gases. It has significant advantages over chemical systems with regards to environmental issues. It has significant advantages over CO2 systems with regards to human survivability and is able to be used with automatic detection and actuation systems.
