CO2 Permanent System
Carbon Dioxide constitutes a colourless, odorless and inert gas. During usage, no damage is provoked (contrary to water or dry powder, the use of which can cause important damage to equipment), it is a safe agent for the majority of materials, non - hazardous for food, non - corrosive and non - conductive. It evaporates completely in a few seconds after the extinguishing procedure and leaves no traces. Consequently, it can be used with no risk to various spaces containing electrical and electronic devises, precious artworks, paintings or manuscripts, or to flammable liquid warehouses, electric substations, kilns and ovens. The use of CO2 must be avoided to spaces where humans or animals are, because of its provoking suffocating conditions. The three - dimension use of CO2 means that it can extinguish fires in vertical and horizontal direction. Its fast diffusion constitutes the key to a successful extinguishment, since it can penetrate through a break on a wall to all secret and remote places regardless of the obstacles that may exist.
Carbon Dioxide constitutes a stable commercial product with many other applications and it is widely used all over the world. Permanent CO2 Systems can be automatically or manually activated, while the activation can be effected mechanically and pneumatically or electronically or from another combination of the above depending on existing conditions. Carbon Dioxide is stored in normal temperature conditions in steel cylinders. Pressure changes depending on the temperature and at 21oC , it is about 59bar.Multiple Cylinder Batteries can be applied to the specific areas that we wish to protect from a fire.
A Common System Consists of:
Steel High Pressure Cylinders, seamless and of various capacities, electro statically painted in red colour with grey neck. Cylinders are certified according 99/36/EC and EN 1964-1 (π) . System Valves pneumatically - manually activated with pottential use of a fuse. Further to the above, an electrically activated valve can be used, depending on the needs of the user. Steel Pilot Cylinder 3lt capacity, containing nitrogen, with manually and fuse activated valve or electrically activated valve depending on the requirements of the user (Pilot Cylinder is used in case of a battery of more than two cylinders). High Pressure Cylinder is CE certified according 97/23/EC by TUV (CE 0036).
High Pressure Collector, 300bar, galvanized, its diameter varies from 11/4” to 3”, with 3/4” inlet and outlet varying from 3/4” to 3”. Also provided: Cylinder Bracket, High Pressure Flexible Hoses for connecting the cylinders one another and their connecting to the collector, various types of nozzles depending on the Fire Safety Study’s requirements.

- Ιnstall the brackets on the wall
- Install the Cylinders in a way where the valve outlet is on the front side/span>
- Assemble the Collector and install the non return valves
- Connect the valves with each other using the flexible hoses 3/8”- 3/8”. Fit the blind coupling 3/8” to the final cylinder to seal the system.
- Connect the valves with the non-return valves to the collector using the flexible hoses 21,78 - 3/4”
- Connect the Pilot Cylinder with the first Cylinder using a flexible hose 21,78 - 3/4”. Install the fuse and the blind coupling 3/8” to the pilot’s valve.
