CO2 is probably the most popular clean agent all over the world. Its accumulated experience facilitates the engineering of multiple applications that have been standarized, as kitchen hoods, transformation facilities, etc.
Its low cost and easy acquisition all over the world, has made CO2 a leading product in multiple applications, as in the shipping industry. lt is easy to test at real scale, the refills are immediate and inexpensive.
The extinguishing mechanism is based mainly in physical principles. On one side, it reduces the oxigen concentration bebow 15% and on the other side cools down and absorbs the heat of the flame. In oxigen concentrations below 15%, most of the fires can not maintain the combustion. The versatility of the CO2makes it suitable to be used in total flood applications, in local applications and even in fixed spots with hoses.
CO2 is typically used in non-occupied spaces, as it may cause suffocation in normal extinguishing concentrations. If it is used in normally occupied areas, some safety precautions must be taken.
