CO2

Carbon dioxide or CO2 is a colorless, odorless, electrically non-conductive gas...that's highly efficient as a fire suppression agent. Fike Carbon Dioxide fire protection systems use intelligent, reliable and fast-acting control panels to quickly sense a fire before it can cause damage to property. Carbon dioxide gas has a high rate of expansion, which allows a Fike CO2 fire protection system to work fast.

Total Flooding and Local Application Systems

Both CO2 systems consist of a fixed supply of carbon dioxide connected to a piping network for agent distribution. A total flooding system quickly extinguishes both surface and deep seated fire hazards by discharging the agent into an enclosed volume. A local application system is used when the hazard is non-enclosable. Local application systems protect a two- or three-dimensional hazard by discharging the carbon dioxide directly on the burning material.

When applied to a fire, CO2 provides a heavy blanket of gas that reduces the oxygen level to a point where combustion cannot occur. Since carbon dioxide is a gas, there is no clean-up associated with aFike CO2 fire suppression system discharge...that's minimal interruption to your business! In fact, the cost of clean-up and peripheral damage associated with water sprinkler systems, foam systems, and dry chemical agents can exceed the costs associated with the actual fire damage. With a Fike Carbon Dioxidesystem, clean up costs and downtime associated with a CO2 discharge are negligible.

Fike's CO2 fire suppression system is extremely versatile, effective on a wide range of flammable and combustible materials and approved for Class A, B, and C hazards.
