CO2 systems work in two ways to extinguish fires; they reduce the oxygen level and they absorb the heat, suffocating and cooling the fire.
Due to the gaseous nature of carbon dioxide, minimal clean-up is required following activation of the system, reducing the interruption to business operations. Carbon dioxide fire extinguishing systems are designed for total flooding or local fire protection applications of unmanned areas.
DAB vales, actuators and accessories for CO2 fire extinguishing systems are known worldwide for their reliability, durability and ease of use.
There is no clean-up associated with CO2 extinguishing systems as carbon dioxide gas, as the gas leaves no residue.
Carbon dioxide fire suppression systems have been used in fire fighting for over 50 years, and has proved highly effective at suffocating fires.
Under normal operating conditions, CO2 extinguishing systems are non-conductive, making them safe for use on electrical equipment.
CO2 causes no chemical reaction when in contact with metal, electrical equipment or oil, making it suitable for a range of applications.
