Clean Agent Fire Extinguishers

Clean Agent Fire Extinguishers

What are they? Why are they different? What is so good about them?

Clean agent extinguishers act to extinguish a fire by smothering it without damaging the delicate electronic equipment it is commonly used on and also leaving no residue. The Clean Agent does not conduct electricity back to the user making them also effective on electrical fires. Clean Agent is effective on Class B and C fires typically petrol, oil, propane, butane etc.

A fire can only occur when three elements are present: heat, oxygen, and a fuel source. If one element is not present or is blocked, the fire will be extinguished. Clean agents eliminate either the heat or the oxygen elements to extinguish the fire.

Clean agent suppression systems are activated by smoke rather than heat. As a result, clean agent systems are able to suppress fire at its incipient stage by dispersing either an inert or Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) gas. Clean agents also are designed to prevent re-ignition.

Clean agent suppression systems are specifically beneficial to buildings holding mission critical data such as telecommunication switches, server rooms, museums, vaults, or process control rooms. This is because when clean agent systems are used to extinguish fire, instead of sprinkler systems, there’s no concern over water damage. With a system like these water damage can be as bad as the damage from the fire, if not worse.

Typical applications include Boats, Computer Rooms, Clean rooms, switch rooms and telecoms, Data Storage Areas and art storage rooms.
