Clean Agent & Special Hazard Suppression

Clean Agent & Special Hazard Suppression

Hiller is committed to doing our part to protect the environment. By using clean agent suppression systems, we can better protect lives and property while reducing our carbon footprint. These suppression systems support a cleaner environment by reducing water waste and eliminating the use of ozone depleting agents.

Inert fire suppression systems use argon and nitrogen gases and their mixtures to reduce oxygen levels in a protected space. Once discharged, they are evenly and quickly distributed throughout the area until the oxygen levels no longer support combustion. Inert systems discharge the agent into the space at a steady flow rate, which eliminates turbulence but still meets the 60-second requirement to distribute. Because nitrogen and argon occur naturally in the atmosphere, there is zero negative environmental impact.

Common Applications:

  • Archives and libraries
  • Computer rooms
  • Data centers
  • Machinery spaces
  • Mass transit
  • Medical facilities
  • Military installations

Benefits:

  • No cleanup
  • Non-conductive
  • No ozone impact
  • No global warming impact
  • Safe for people and assets

Inergen fire suppression systems are clean, quick-acting systems designed for spaces where fire could break out unexpectedly at any time and where people and/or sensitive equipment are present. It uses naturally occurring argon, nitrogen and carbon dioxide to suppress fires in spaces where water is not an option. Inergen floods the area and reducing the oxygen, so combustion cannot occur.

Common Applications:

  • Telecommunication
  • Computer rooms
  • Subfloors
  • Any occupied or unoccupied space with sensitive electronic equipment
  • Vaults

Benefits:

  • Zero toxicity
  • Environmentally safe
  • Safe for occupants
  • No residue
  • System can be stored remotely

FM-200 is a fast-acting clean agent comprised of heptafluoropropane, which is a compound of carbon, fluorine and hydrogen. This agent is a part of a total flood system and reaches extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, which translates to less damage, reduction of safety risk to occupants, and less downtime.

Common Applications:

  • Data centers
  • Communications rooms
  • Medical facilities
  • Archives
  • Media storage
  • Historical collections

Benefits:

  • Safe for occupied space
  • Eco-friendly Halon replacement
  • Zero ozone depletion
  • Effective
  • Efficient

Novec 1230 is a fluoroketone comprise of dodecafluro-2-methylpentan-3-one compound of carbon, fluorine and oxygen. It is stored in liquid form in cylinders and is colorless and low odor. It is engineered to quickly extinguish fire without cause harm to people or the environment. A part of a total flood system, the fluid vaporizes upon discharge, absorbing heat to suppress fire. It is ideal for spaces that house electronic equipment that cannot be shut down in emergencies.

Common Applications:

  • Server rooms
  • Data storage
  • Archives
  • Telecommunication systems
  • Flammable liquid storage
  • Media storage
  • Historical collections

Benefits:

  • Non-conductive
  • Zero ozone depletion
  • Safe for people
  • Requires minimal storage
  • Colorless
  • Odorless

Water mist fire suppression systems disperse fine water droplets to form a mist which suppresses fire by cooling the flame and surrounding gases by evaporation, by displacing oxygen using evaporation and by attenuating radiant heat. The systems are water-efficient, offer simple recharge, cause little water damage and are environmentally safe.

Common Applications:

  • Total flood machinery spaces
  • Local high-risk applications
  • Accommodation areas
  • Other machinery spaces
  • Gas turbine enclosures
  • Bilges
  • Vehicle decks

Benefits:

  • Immediate activation
  • No toxicity
  • Minimal water damage
  • Efficient
