IG-55 (Argonite) is an inert gas comprising of 50% Argon & 50& Nitrogen, it is naturally present in the atmosphere, therefore its green-house effect is nil and its ozone layer depletion potential is zero. It is chemically inert, non-conductive, colourless, odourless and flavourless. IG-55 (Argonite) is non-corrosive and may be used at normal temperatures with such materials as nickel, steel, stainless steel, copper, brass, bronze and plastics.
IG-55 (Argonite) suppression systems are based in the principle of reducing the oxygen concentration inside the protected hazard. The oxygen concentration is minimized by the application of IG-55 (Argonite) until it reaches a level where combustion is no longer supported. Each system is designed so as to decrease oxygen to a specific level. When discharged, IG-55 (Argonite) is quickly and uniformly distributed within the enclosure, achieving design concentration in 60 seconds.
