Introduction to Clean Agents

Summary

Definition, Typical Applications and Extinguishing Mechanisms

Total flooding clean agent systems utilize a gaseous fire extinguishing agent to provide protection from fire throughout an enclosed space. Typical applications include: computer rooms, data processing, process control rooms and telecommunications equipment rooms.

Clean agents work to cause extinguishment by displacing oxygen, increasing heat losses from the fire through increased heat capacity and (for halocarbon based clean agents) through endothermic decomposition reactions. Some agents, most notably Halon 1301, utilize radicals liberated during decomposition to interfere with combustion reactions.
