CO2 is a colourless, dry and inert gas. CO2 Vapourises after extinguishing a fire and leaves no residue. It is non-conductive to electricity and non corrosive so it is most suitable for portection of electrical and electronic equipment. CO2 is readily available standard gas this makes it the most costeffective gas extinghuishing system. The exthinguishing effect is achieved by displacement of oxygen so that the atmosphere is incapable of supporting combusting. Typical applications are electrical substations, flammable liquids storage and engine rooms.
