Fire Eater supplies turnkey room extinguishing systems with Inergen – a so-called ARS system. An Inergen system is among the most personal safe room extinguishing systems that you can find on the market.
The extinguishing method itself is based on oxygen displacement. This means concretely that the oxygen content in the room where Inergen is triggered will be lowered from approx. 20.9% to a level around between 12 to 14%. The low oxygen level means that there is not enough oxygen to feed a fire, which therefore goes out.
The unique thing about Inergen is that, where other extinguishing methods of this type only lower the oxygen level, 8% CO 2 has been added to Inergen, which means that the body (brain and muscles) can better absorb the oxygen during an activation of the ARS system. This makes this solution personal safe.
At the same time, the solution is one of the most sustainable, as Inergen consists exclusively of naturally occurring gases that are already in the atmosphere (nitrogen 52%, argon 40% and carbon dioxide 8%). This means that the environment is not affected when a plant is activated. No chemicals are used. The greenhouse effect is zero, and there is no impact on the ozone layer. You could say that we borrow existing gases, use them to put out a fire and deliver them back in exactly the same condition.
