Argonite – fighting fires nature’s way
 
More and more companies are today ensuring that environmental considerations play a major part when selecting a fire fighting system. So much so that Argonite, which consists entirely of naturally occurring gasses, has long been the solution of first choice for many industrial and commercial building occupiers.

Not only has Argonite zero Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP), it also contributes nothing towards global warming, thanks to a complete absence of hydrofluorocarbons-HFCs. At the same it is a gaseous fire suppressant that has an enviable 50-year track record.
 
The environmental answer:
 
Argonite is a leading environmentally-friendly replacement for Halon 1301. An equal blend of nitrogen and argon, it produces no secondary combustion products and is particularly suitable for fighting fires in confined spaces. Because its molecular weight is close to that of air, it lingers longer when discharged to extinguish a fire. This reduces the need for hermetic sealing of a protected room – a process that can be very expensive and needs to be repeated every time structural changes are made.

Argonite is not prone to fogging, is non-toxic, non-corrosive, leaves no residue and is electrically non-conductive. This has led to it being successfully specified in applications where there is a need to avoid secondary damage by the fire fighting agent. Popular applications include computer and control rooms, tape and archive stores, electrical cabinets and switchgear compartments and around telecommunications equipment.
 
How Argonite Works
 
Should a fire start, Argonite is injected rapidly into the room, reducing the oxygen level from the normal 21% to between 11% and 13%. This is too low for further combustion to take place, yet high enough to allow essential safety personnel to operate.

Argonite is suited to either total flooding or local application. When more than a single room or compartment is protected, GIELLE normally recommends that a central bank of Argonite cylinders is connected via diverter valves. This frequently proves to be the most cost effective and efficient solution. As a permanent gas working under high pressure with single-phase flow characteristics, complicated pipe networks can be installed.

Starting with an initial site survey, ISO 9001-approved GIELLE undertakes every aspect of an Argonite installation using the very latest LPCB approved computer-aided-design technology at the design stage. Equipment assembly, site installation and commissioning are carried out under the strictest quality assurance. GIELLE also undertakes regular maintenance of Argonite installations to ensure they remain in peak performance.
