How Inergen works

The extinguishing principle utilised by Inergen is called oxygen displacement.

The purpose of oxygen displacement is to reduce the oxygen level in the protected area so that the fire cannot “breathe”.

Inergen consists solely of gases that occur naturally in the atmosphere and is completely harmless to humans.

That’s why you should choose Inergen

  • It extinguishes fire quickly – typically in just 40 seconds.
  • Extinguishes fire completely – no re-ignition later.
  • Harmless to people and equipment.
  • Prevents secondary damage.

How it works

How Inergen systems work in a data center

The Inergen® fire suppression system is an automated solution designed to swiftly and effectively extinguish fires. It employs an aspiration system, which incorporates highly sensitive fire detection technology capable of identifying fires in their initial stages. Once a fire is detected, Inergen® is promptly released into the room. Reducing the oxygen level just enough to stop combustion, without posing any risk of harm to individuals present.
