The systems are designed to be total flooding and consist of a fixed supply of INERGEN connected to a piping system with nozzles to direct the agent into an enclosed hazard. The increase in carbon dioxide content increases an individual’s respiration rate and the body’s ability to absorb oxygen thus allowing the body to compensate for the lower oxygen content. especially electrical equipment. electrically non-conductive medium is essential or where the cleaning up of foam.

The following specification applies to INERGEN. INERGEN does not decompose when subjected to heat from a fire so avoiding hazardous breakdown products. 1.1 GENERAL INERGEN simultaneously reduces the oxygen concentration in an enclosure and increases the carbon dioxide concentration.00 16/12/05 CN 1.

Controls for the ventilation system should be outside the protected enclosure and should be key operated. 1. 1.5.5 EXITS Adequate means of escape from the protected area should be provided. In some circumstances the normally closed means of ventilation may be provided by doors and windows.5.1. Doors should open outwards and be self closing. They should be arranged to open easily from inside and any that need to be secured must be fitted with escape overrides.2 NOISE Discharge of an INERGEN system can cause noise loud enough to be startling but ordinarily insufficient to cause traumatic injury. a normally closed means of ventilation with extract arrangements will be required as with any gaseous extinguishing system. National standards or local fire brigade rules need to be taken into account and may differ from the information given above.6 POST DISCHARGE VENTILATION In order to allow for the ventilation of INERGEN and/or the post fire atmosphere.1.1.1.5. 1. PAGE 4 of 133 .5.4 VISIBILITY Under normal conditions INERGEN will not reduce visibility in the protected enclosure. However in a fire situation especially where large amounts of smoke are produced it is likely that the INERGEN discharge will produce some displacement of that smoke around the enclosure and this could reduce visibility in some circumstances.5.3 TURBULENCE High velocity discharge from nozzles may be sufficient to dislodge substantial objects directly in the path of the discharge.1. unsecured paper etc. General turbulence in the enclosure may be sufficient to move light objects.00 16/12/05 CN 1. 1. Ceiling tiles in the vicinity of the nozzles should be clipped in place to prevent them being dislodged during the discharge. Any mechanical ventilation provided should not form part of the normal ventilation system.INERGEN 300 Bar 14A-09 1.

Class B & C fires are quickly extinguished by INERGEN at the appropriate concentrations. as a minimum the following details: • Enclosure dimensions • Specific details of the hazard • The minimum and maximum temperatures of the hazard enclosure • Height of the enclosure above (or below) sea level • Confirmation that the containment is adequate • Details of the ventilation system • Intended occupancy of the enclosure • Storage container location. SYSTEM DESIGN 2. • Details of National laws or requirements that need to be taken into account. INERGEN is suitable for the protection of hazards involving Class A. • Mixtures containing oxidising agents such as sodium chlorate or sodium nitrate. (this should preferably be outside the protected enclosure). Systems are suitable only for the total flooding of hazard enclosures. The manual has been prepared to give an understanding in the application of INERGEN systems. B & C materials. the designer should have. which is applicable in Germany The following notes provide additional information to assist the designer in providing the correct system for the hazard. Floor loading should also be taken into consideration. but in the case of Class C fires the risk of explosion should be carefully considered and where possible the flammable gas flow should be isolated before or as soon as possible after extinguishment. INERGEN is suitable for use on fires involving live electrical equipment but is not effective on.00 16/12/05 CN 2. such as cellulose nitrate. • Reactive metals.

Providing a Class A fire is detected quickly. • Solid materials in which fires quickly become deep seated. the INERGEN is discharged promptly and the concentration is maintained for an adequate period of time to allow embers to cool. © 2005 Tyco Safety Products PAGE 9 of 133 . • Chemicals capable of undergoing autothermal decomposition such as some organic peroxides. and should not be used to fight fires involving: • Chemicals containing their own supply of oxygen. Class B and C hazards will require separate consideration. These values taken from ISO 14520 are based on the ‘extinguishing value’ plus 30% and then rounded up to the next nearest full number.00 16/12/05 CN Determine the gross room volume.100 / eff Flooding Factor = ln (100 / (100 .dc)) x ((0. This should be used as the design temperature when determining the agent quantity.m INERGEN / cu. 4) Determine the quantity of INERGEN containers required by dividing the INERGEN quantity required by the capacity of each INEGEN container as shown in Table 3. Agent Quantity =V x (ln (100 / (100 . Note: Adjust the agent quantity if the system is to be installed at altitudes that vary from sea level by more than 11%. The proportion of air that has been replaced by INERGEN when the discharge is complete is called the design concentration. If any doubt exists refer to the Extinguishing Technical Department. Design Concentration = 100 . The relationship between the design concentration and the flooding factor may be summarised by the following equations.00239 x t))) Where.flooding factor 0. 2) Determine the minimum design concentration for the hazard involved.

After the delay period has elapsed, the actiation signal is given to the components of the extinguishing system: a) signal to the solenoid valve (204.4) responsible for the extinguishing area to be flooded and to the electric actuator (108) for the pilot cylinder (201): or b) signal to the solenoid valve (204.4) responsible for the extinguishing area to be flooded and to the stepper motor (106, which has run out) mechanically opens the cylinder valve (202) on the pilot cylinder (201). In both cases a membrane is destroyed. As a result of this it is no longer possible to close the pilot cylinder valve (202). The pilot gas, INERGEN 200 bar, flows into the ESPL-3 (204). Here the stream of pilot gas is split up into two flows. The first of these flows at full pressure to the transmitter valves (204.7, one per container bank) which are still closed. The second flow, after reducing it’s pressure to 10 bar, flows through the solenoid valve (204.4, one per extinguishing area) which has already opened allowing the flow to continue onto to the pneumatic drive (402) which then opens the associated distribution valve (401). In addition, pilot gas is supplied to the input of the confirmation valve (204.5), which is still closed. When the distribution valve (401) has reached the ‘open’ position, a signal is sent to the detection and control panel (101) by the position switch (403). After this signal has been processed within the panel the confirmation valve (204.5) for the extinguishing area that is to be flooded is activated. PAGE 22 of 133 EQUIPMENT: INERGEN 300 Bar PUBLICATION: 14A-09 ISSUE No. & DATE: 1.00 16/12/05 CN On opening the 10 bar pilot gas flows automatically via the pneumatic directional valves (204.8.1) in the control unit (204.8) of the EPSL-3 (204) to one or more transmitter valves (204.7). The 10 bar signal is used here to send pilot pressure of 200 bar to the necessary container bank/s which are required to flood the extinguishing area in question. The 200 bar pilot gas flows via the optional ‘Main / Reserve’ switchover unit (205) to the extinguishing agent bank. Example: Extinguishing area A requires bank 1 Extinguishing area B requires bank 2 Extinguishing area C requires banks 1 and 2. The container valves (302) of the corresponding container bank/s are opened pneumatically. The extinguishing agent flows via the pressure reduction unit (303), reduced to a pressure of 200 bar, via the respective container connection hose (304) and the non return valve (305) into the manifold (501). The connection pipe (502) to the distribution valves (401) is connected here. The extinguishing agent, which has already been reduced to a pressure of 200 bar, flows through the opened distribution valve (401) and downstream pressure reduction device (405), which reduces the pressure from 200 bar to 60 bar, and then through the pipe (503) to the extinguishing area where it exits from the extinguishing nozzles (504) and is distributed in the room. AREAS WITH DIFFERENT TIME DELAYS Below is a description based on the the system as shown in Fig 5. If fire breaks out it is detected in the early stages by the automatic detectors (smoke detectors, heat detectors etc.) (102) positioned in the extinguishing area and is signalled to the detection and control panel (101). Alternatively, a manual release push button (103) is also provided: this is positioned in the extinguishing area and can be operated manually be the staff. Within the electical detection and control panel (101) the signal from either the automatic detectors (102), or the manual release (103), is processed internally, and initialy the following functions are carried out. • The accoustic alarm devices (104) are switched on in the extinguishing area (two independant alarm de- vices) • Visual indicators and alarms, if present, are switched on. • An adjustable delay period of between 10 and 60 seconds starts, enabling the staff the leave the extin- guishing area.

Due to the activation of the area specific solenoid valve (204.4) or (204.6) the pilot pressure of 10 bar is fed to the pneumatic drive (402) which opens the associated distribution valve (401). In addition, the input of the confirmation valve (204.5, which is still closed) is supplied with pilot gas.

Filling details are shown in Table 18. Weights for an 80 Litre INERGEN container are shown in the table below. Dimensions for an 80 Litre INERGEN container are given in Fig. 7. Containers are designed, manufactured and marked in accordance with 84/525/EEC or 200mm EN 1964 Part 1 to meet the requirement of 99/36/EC and are marked accordingly. Containers are pressure tested to 450 Bar. Labels providing handling, maintenance and 1945mm* recharge instructions are fitted to all containers. 1845mm* Containers are coloured grey to EN 1089 1805mm* with a bright green top dome. Containers must not be subject to direct sunlight or adverse weather conditions and must not be positioned where water can accumulate around the base. To raise containers off the floor, grates are available in two sizes: Grate for 3 containers: KO 368 1656 Grate for 2 containers: KO 368 1606 Note: Other container sizes, such as 267mm 27, 40 and 67 Litres may be available and details of their Fig 10: 80 Ltr INERGEN Container dimensions, weights and part numbers are available on request. * approximate values Container Part Number INERGEN Volume INERGEN Weight Tare Weight* Gross Weight* 80 Litre KO 240 4356 23.6 m3 35.5 Kg 119 Kg 153 Kg Table 19: Container Dimensions. © 2005 Tyco Safety Products PAGE 47 of 133 INERGEN 300 Bar 14A-09 1.00 16/12/05 CN 3.2 INERGEN CONTAINER VALVE - CI 12-8 The CI 12-8 quick action valve is a container valve for INERGEN which can be opened automatically or manually. The automatic opening procedure can be initiated electrically and / or pneumatically. Functional Description of the CI 12-8 Valve Electrical Release The actuating disk in the valve is punctured by means of Release Head III and actuator SF-2 or the Step Motor SMV-1 delay device. The gas that is released presses the piston downwards so that the valve opens. The valve only closes again when the container has been emptied. Pneumatic Release The valve can be actuated pneumatically via a control cylinder or pilot cylinder. In both cases the pressure is between 200 and 240 bar. Pilot Cylinder Pilot cylinders with a filling pressure of 200 bar are used (maximum developed pressure 240 bar at 50 degrees C) To close the valve, it is necessary to interupt the supply of pilot pressure in the valve and to relieve the pressure.
