INERGEN® 150-Bar

Torvac Solutions is advancing the use of the environmentally safe, state-of-the-art INERGEN fire suppression Systems. INERGEN agent is non-toxic to humans and will not damage valuable assets. It is suited for suppressing fires in hazards where an electrically non-conductive medium is essential or desirable, where clean-up of other agents presents problems, or where the hazard is a workplace that requires a non-toxic agent. INERGEN fire suppression systems are ideally suited to protecting properties with sensitive or precious assets such as data facilities, historical archives, libraries, museums, and galleries.

Protecting properties with sensitive or precious business assets.

The INERGEN Fire Suppression System, is an engineered clean-agent system, utilising a fixed nozzle agent distribution network. The system is designed and installed in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 2001, ‘‘Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems.’’ When properly designed, the INERGEN system will suppress surface burning fire in Class A, B, and C hazards by lowering the oxygen content below the level that supports combustion.

Key features

Container/Valve Assembly

The container assembly is of steel construction with a red standard finish. Four sizes are available to meet specific needs. Each is equipped with a pressure seat-type valve equipped with gauge. The valve is constructed of forged brass and is attached to the container, providing a leak tight seal. The valve also includes a safety pressure relief device which provides relief at 2900-3300 psi (200-228 bar) per CGA test method. Container charging pressure is 2175 psi at 70 °F (150 bar at 21 °C). The containers are shipped with a maintenance record card and shipping cap attached. The cap is attached to the threaded collar on the neck of each container to protect the valve while in transit. The container serial number and date of manufacture are stamped near the neck of each container.

Electric Actuator

The AUTOPULSE control system is used to control a single fixed fire suppression or alarm system based on inputs Electric actuation of an agent container is accomplished by an electric actuator interfaced through an AUTOPULSE Control System. This actuator can be used in hazardous environments where the ambient temperature range is between 32 °F and 130 °F (0 °C and 54 °C). In auxiliary or override applications, a manual lever actuator can be installed on top of the actuator.

Limitations

The INERGEN system must be designed and installed within the guidelines of the manufacturer’s design, installation, operation, inspection, recharge, and maintenance manual. The ambient temperature limitations are 32 °F to 130 °F (0 °C to 54 °C). All AUTOPULSE Control Systems are designed for indoor applications and for temperature ranges between 32 °F and 120 °F (0 °C and 49 °C).

Watch the INERGEN demonstration video

INERGEN agent is composed of naturally-occurring gases found in the air we breathe. Unlike other inert gas agents, INERGEN agent includes a small percentage of carbon dioxide, which enhances its ability to sustain life in a reduced oxygen atmosphere. INERGEN agent is nontoxic, does not produce corrosive decomposition products when exposed to fire, and is designed to protect valuable or sensitive assets that could be damaged by conventional agents. When discharged, it will not produce a fog, so escape routes will remain visible. And in the aftermath of an incident, the agent simply returns to the atmosphere in its natural state, causing no environmental impact.
