Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression System

Carbon Dioxide fire suppression systems are legacy fixed fire suppression systems. These used to be popular to install as carbon Dioxide is readily available and cheap. However, frequent accidental discharges causing deaths on board ships have rapidly caused carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression systems to be phased out

Modern fire suppression systems are mostly FM 200 based or even the environmentally friendly option FK 5112. Calculated carefully by experts, the systems do not cause poisoning or asphyxiation.

Today, Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression systems are still being installed in vehicle engine compartments or small sealed enclosures that have no human presence. Ultimately, they are very cheap to install and maintain so they still see some usage.
