ETG FIRE offers special hazard fire suppression system design, installation, and ongoing maintenance. We are authorized distributors for the highest quality available system components in the industry and have in house certified designers and technicians.
FM-200 is a gaseous agent that extinguishes fires by interrupting the chain reaction of fire. It is safe for electronics, data centers, processes, and safe for people when designed within occupiable concentration percentages defined in NFPA 2001. FM-200 meets the requirements of the definition of clean agent fire suppression per NFPA 2001 and is the most widely utilized gaseous fire suppression agent since the introduction of SNAP protocols in the mid 90s. FM-200 is stored in DOT approved cylinders and disbursed through an engineered pipe network.
FE-25 is a gaseous agent that extinguishes fires by interrupting the chain reaction of fire. It is safe for electronics, data centers, processes, and safe for people when designed within occupiable concentration percentages defined in NFPA 2001. FE-25 meets the requirements of the definition of clean agent fire suppression per NFPA 2001 and is an extremely favorable Halon replacement due to its similar density and flow characteristics. In many Halon replacement scenarios, the original Halon piping can be re-used and only the cylinders and nozzles are required to be changed. FE-25 is stored in DOT approved cylinders and disbursed through an engineered pipe network.
Pro-Inert is a high pressure gaseous agent consisting of a mixture of Nitrogen and Argon (IG-55) or Nitrogen and Argon and Carbon Dioxide (IG-541). Pro-Inert is stored in high pressure containers and is disbursed through an engineered pipe network. It suppresses fire by lowering the oxygen content within the protected space to a level below where combustion is supported but still breathable.
NOVEC-1230 (SAPPHIRE): “NOVEC-1230 is a unique fire suppression agent in that it not only meets the requirements of NFPA 2001 for clean agent but is also extremely environmentally friendly. NOVEC-1230 is also safe for people / occupied environments and is stored in DOT approved cylinders and disbursed through an engineered pipe network.
Halon 1301, while still in use in many installations, is no longer manufactured since shortly after the agreement and signing of the Montreal Protocol. Halon 1301 is an excellent fire suppression agent but is ozone depleting. ETG FIRE can provide modifications and changes to Halon 1301 systems, and also specializes in providing complete replacement. ETG FIRE has the expertise and licensing to facilitate the removal of Halon and associated initiators.
Water mist fire suppression encompasses a range of technologies and is commonly accomplished by pressurizing ultra clean water, pumping it through a single or dual flow tubing system, and disbursed via nozzles designed and manufactured to extremely tight tolerances. The water is atomized, creating a “mist” which then fights fire with added benefits over standard sprinkler methods. These benefits include increased heat absorption via the significantly increased surface area, increased three dimensional capabilities due to the flow of the mist, and smaller overall water usage compared to standard sprinkler. Water mist technology is able to protect various hazards including hangars, high temperature class b fire environments, industrial fryers, and hazards that have limited water supply!
FE-13 is a gaseous clean agent meeting the requirements of NFPA 2001. It is stored in high pressure cylinders and disbursed through an engineered pipe network.
FE-36 is a gaseous clean agent meeting the requirements of NFPA 2001. It is stored in high pressure cylinders and disbursed through an engineered pipe network.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) has been in use as a fire suppression agent for over 100 years. CO2 is an inert agent that has little to no interaction with various industrial chemicals and is extremely efficient at extinguishing fires by removing oxygen from the protected space. Care must be taken in the design and installation of CO2 due to its ability to remove oxygen. There are several industrial processes wherein CO2 is the best or only option for fire protection. ETG FIRE has designed and installed hundreds of CO2 systems for environments including ship-board areas, turbine generators, industrial fryers, equipment containers in extremely cold areas (Antarctica and similar), and flammable manufacturing processes.
