About Fire Suppression Systems

What is a Fire Suppression System?
Simply put, a fire suppression system is designed to extinguish a fire that ignites in a building. Fire suppression systems are sometimes described in the industry as separate from fire sprinkler systems because they use suppressing agents or chemicals such as inert gasses, co2, wet chemicals, and dry chemicals instead of water. This highlights that fire suppression systems typically minimize water damage to property and building contents. When a fire ignites, the suppression mechanism activates and the agent or chemical is dispensed to put out the fire.

Fire suppression systems have been relied on by commercial Industries for over a century. During the early stages, carbon tetrachloride was used before the industry was revolutionized by the development of clean agent suppression systems. The evolution of industry technology and safety standards has led to some remarkable current day products. Today, clean agent fire suppression systems leave no trace of residue when discharged. This makes them ideal for highly sensitive building 

contents such as historical artifacts, art, electrical equipment, and so on. There are many options for suppressing a fire including clean agent, dry chemical, wet chemical, and water-based methods. This allows for fire protection companies like us to tailor systems to protect a wide range of environments.

Choosing the Right Fire Suppression System

There are many different types of fire suppression systems. The broad categories are referred to as wet chemical suppression systems, dry chemical suppression systems, clean agent suppression systems, and water-based suppression systems.

Wet Chemical Fire Suppression Systems
Wet chemicals are often used in commercial kitchens to suppress grease fires. They are widely considered the best suppression system for this application. They work by activating when a fire is sensed and cover the flames with a wet foam-like substance that cools cooking oils below the ignition point.

Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems
Dry chemicals are often used in buildings or environments where water or wet chemicals cannot be used safely to disperse fires. These may include buildings with electrical equipment, or large areas with a high amount of flammable or combustible liquids such as aircraft hangers. Dry chemicals include things like sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, and mono ammonium phosphate, which are dispersed to extinguish flames and keep fires from reigniting.

Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems
Clean agent fire suppression systems are similar to dry chemical systems in that they are used in places that are susceptible to water damage. They differ in that they leave behind no residue, and thus require no clean up if they need to be used. Clean agents mostly consist of inert gasses that are safe in buildings occupied by humans. They are typically used in buildings that contain high value assets such as medical equipment, museums, military operations server rooms, and other buildings with a lot of live electrical equipment.

Another type of clean agent suppression system is a CO2 system. These systems use a large amount of CO2 to extinguish a fire. Large amounts of CO2 is harmful to humans, so these types of fire suppression systems are only used in spaces that do not have human occupants.

Water-Based Fire Suppression System
This is the most common type of suppression system and are more commonly known as sprinkler systems. This type of system uses water to extinguish fires in buildings. There are automatic sprinkler systems and manually activated sprinkler systems; both can be effective for fighting fires. Common water based systems include traditional wet pipe sprinkler systems, dry pipe sprinkler systems, deluge sprinklers, and pre-action fire sprinkler systems.
