The use of hypoxic (oxygen depleted) air for fire prevention was first introduced in 2001 by New York based company FirePASS Corporation. Since then this concept became an industry with standards issued in EU and many countries worldwide”.
How oxygen reduction fire prevention works
- Ambient air is drawn into the hypoxic generator where it is purified and turned hypoxic (low oxygen level).
- The entire room is ventilated with low oxygen air, inhibiting fire ignition.
- Low oxygen air leaks from the room, thus completing the flow of air and ventilating the space.
- A control unit monitoring the room with oxygen-sensors permanently ensures a stable and healthy low oxygen environment in the room.
