Marine fire protection

Extinguish fire safely without consequential damage with Inergen

If a fire occurs on a ship out to sea, help from land may be far away. Engine room fires in particular may have catastrophic consequences if they are not brought under control immediately. They can cause extensive material damage and ultimately threaten personal safety on board. For this reason, choosing a solution that minimizes the risk of fire damage is absolutely crucial.

With Inergen from Fire Eater you get a solution specifically designed to extinguish fire safely, rapidly and efficiently, and without consequential 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.
