Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing System
Clean agent re extinguishing systems utilize clean agent gaseous chemicals for the protection of certain re hazards in today’s world. Clean agents are gaseous extinguishing agents that leave no residue behind and do not conduct electricity. Clean agents in- clude both halocarbon and inert gaseous agents.
A typical re hazard fuel array is generally classi ed according to a well-recognized classi cation scheme (Class A, B, C, D, or K), and Class C res are those that involve energized electrical equipment. Normal protection methods attempt to de-energize the electrical equipment to minimize the re challenge of Class C res (also referred to as energized electrical equipment res or energy augmented combustion). However, it may be necessary to provide protection for scenarios where the power cannot be removed and the performance of clean agents on such res is not completely understood.
