Areas of applicationof Oxygen Reduction Fire Prevention Systems

The N2 OXYGEN REDUCTION SYSTEM® is highly reliable, flexible, scalable and suitable for:

Archiving

Archives of all kind can perfectly be protected by ISOLCELL’s N2 ORS method as the risk of fire can be eliminated completely. 

Archives of all kind can perfectly be protected by ISOLCELL’s N2 ORS method as the risk of fire can be eliminated completely. Sensitive documents, irreplaceable artefacts, paintings and collections or precious materials that contribute to our global heritage are absolutely safe once the oxygen depletion system is in place.
A large hospital in Italy has decided in favour of ADOX N2 OXYGEN REDUCTION system in order to protect and preserve infinitely health records and medical documents. The archive has got a size of 1000m2 and the shelf lengths holding these documents has got an impressive length of 25 Kilometres.

IT, Data centres & substations

A fire, in a data centre for example, can have serious consequences, such as websites not running, the inability to receive and send email for thousands of users and companies, e-commerce sites and public services becoming inactive for hours and the significant economic damage due to the disruption.

A fire, in a data centre for example, can have serious consequences, such as websites not running, the inability to receive and send email for thousands of users and companies, e-commerce sites and public services becoming inactive for hours and the significant economic damage due to the disruption. Gas extinguishing systems, traditionally used in data centres, only provide passive protection and come to action only once a fire has started. Extreme high pressures when the extinguishing gas is being released, re-ignition after gas release, as of leaky premises, are just a few of the risks that inevitable every data centre operator runs. Each of these risks can lead to the total loss of data, loss of clients and subsequently loss of the business.

According to the article Clean Agents Fire Protection for Computer Rooms by Mark l. Robin, the economic damage caused by a blackout of a computer network can exceed one million dollars for each hour of downtime. Now more than ever, given the ever-increasing offer of cloud-based services, it is vital to completely eliminate fire risk.

Fortunately, technological evolution has overcome a number of technical hurdles, making it now possible to permanently protect these spaces from fire hazards, by relying on the N2 OXYGEN REDUCTION SYSTEM® method.

Logistics

FIRE PROTECTION FOR AUTOMATED HIGH-BAY WAREHOUSES

Oxygen reduction fire prevention systems are the perfect solution for fully or half automated warehouses. If it is an ambient temperature warehouse or a cold store, the method eliminates the risk of fire completely thus also eliminating consequential damages a fire would cause. For economical reasons more and more companies tend to manufacture and store their products in a single facility, making an absolute and reliable fire prevention indispensable.

Reference project example:

A striking example is an automated warehouse near Parma, in Italy, with a volume of 161,000 m³, covering 4,600 m² and a capacity of 27,000 pallets, used to store plastic table utensils. The particular characteristics of the product and the high calorific value of the plastic led the company to look beyond traditional fire-fighting technologies (like e.g. sprinklers) and to turn to the only concept of prevention. Despite the more than 500 storage and retrieval movements per hour, the reduced-oxygen atmosphere is accurately being maintained and constantly monitored to reliably eliminating the risk of fire.
