Inergen is a fire suppression solution with inert gas designed to extinguish fires without leaving harmful residue in the environment. Inergen consists of three natural gases – nitrogen, argon, and carbon dioxide – and has been used for over 20 years as an effective and reliable way to protect people, assets, and buildings from fire.

Inergen is particularly suitable for protecting sensitive and valuable equipment such as data centers, laboratories, medical facilities, and archives. This is because Inergen consists of components from the air we breathe and therefore has no harmful effects on the values being protected. Anything that can tolerate air can also tolerate Inergen. Inergen is safe for humans. It can be used in areas with limited space as the Inergen cylinders can be placed away from the protected area.

Inergen is a passive suppression method, which means it does not use water or other active agents to extinguish the fire. Instead, Inergen uses a technique called ” oxygen displacement” which replaces the oxygen in the room where the fire occurred with Inergen. This reduces the oxygen concentration to a level where the fire cannot continue to burn, effectively extinguishing the fire – typically within just 40 seconds. People can safely remain in a room where an Inergen system has been activated.

Inergen is a strong alternative to the use of chemical suppression agents containing PFAS, which are harmful to the environment and humans. Unlike some other suppression agents, Inergen does not require constant temperature control or maintenance, as it is a gas that can be stored in a cylinder and activated as needed. Inergen is also easy to install and does not require major construction or changes to the building’s structure.

Overall, Inergen is an effective and reliable method of protecting people, assets, and buildings from fires, including special sensitive and valuable assets in an area. It is without chemicals and PFAS, Inergen is not harmful to the environment and requires minimal maintenance, making it an ideal and future-proof solution for many businesses.”

    Inergen is an easy extinguishing method compared with water or foam. Cleaning up after foam extinguishing, for example, is very costly and it’s highly likely that very many of the products will have to be scrapped afterwards.

    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.
