Inert Gas 541 (IG-541)
Chemori IG-541 is composed of 40% Argon, 52% Nitrogen and 8% of CO2. Chemori IG-541 suppression systems are based in the principle of reducing the oxygen concentration inside the protected hazard. The oxygen concentration is minimized by the application of IG-541 until it reaches a level where combustion is no longer supported. Each system is designed so as to decrease oxygen to a specific level. When discharged, Chemori IG-541 is quickly and uniformly distributed within the enclosure, achieving design concentration in 60 seconds.
Inert Gas 100 (IG-100)
Chemori IG-100 is made up of 100% of Nitrogen. This inert gas are naturally present in the atmosphere, therefore its green-house effect is nil and its ozone layer depletion potential is zero. It is chemically inert, non-conductive, colourless, odourless and flavourless. Chemori IG-100 is non-corrosive and may be used at normal temperatures with such materials as nickel, steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, bronze and plastics.
This is a blend of 50% Argon & 50% Blend of Nitrogen. The fire suppression gas is blended to offer better buoyancy for the fire suppression agent keeping the fire suppression gas at higher levels in the protected enclosure for longer!
This type of fire suppression is considered a green option and does have many advantages used in the right application.
