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
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.
