How much longer people continue dying?

Freon automatic fire fighting system actuation caused death. It happened on August 12, 2012 on Ostankinskaya TV tower in Moscow and it isn’t the first time when operation of such systems has brought about fatality. We may remind accidents in the Moscow Main Territorial Administration of the Bank of Russia in Podolsk which took place on August 25, 2010 and the death of 20 servicemen on November 8, 2008 on the submarine Nerpa.

Meanwhile there is a way out which can help to avoid people losses during the operation of automatic fire fighting systems. Using inergen is a solution to the problem. “Inergen” is produced by mixing three well-known gases: Nitrogen (N2), Argon (Ar) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in the proportion of 52/40/8 % respectively. It is harmless for people and do not limit the time spent in the premises filled with inergen.
It is transparent which is vital in case of staff evacuation.
“Inergen” is nonconducting and noncondensable dry gas which may be used in conjunction with electronic equipment excluding the risk of arc discharge.
It doesn’t damage equipment and other assets.
It is certified in Russia.
“Inergen” is much cheaper than chlorofluorocarbon.
Gas fire fighting units operating on “Inergen” are capable of extinguishing fire within 60 seconds.
Gas fire fighting units which use unique gas fire-extinguishing composition “Inergen” are widely known all around the world and effectively used in Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Norway, Finland, Sweden, the USA, China and in many other countries. This composition is produced in our plant and it is designed to fight fire of A, B and C classes by means of volumetric method. The most significant facilities which use “Inergen” as a fire-extinguishing composition in their halon fire suppression units are The Louvre museum in Paris, The Norwegian Royal Library in Oslo and Norwegian oil drilling platforms.
In Russia the same system is deployed in The Depository of The State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, in The Pashkov House in Moscow, in Sberbank offices all over Russia, in Samara’s police ammunition warehouses, in LLC “Nizhegorodskaya Mobile Network” offices, in Kazan’s republican library, in LLC “Lukoil” in Kaliningrad and in many other companies and facilities.
Exploitation of this fire-extinguishing composition will lead to excluding the probability of tragedies and will save people’s lives and inventories.
