Fire must have three elements to ignite and spread: heat, oxygen, and fuel. Removing any one of these three will prevent fire. Traditionally, passive measures such as water sprinklers and chemical fire suppression systems were used to suppress a fire after it ignited.
Now, Prevenex’s revolutionary hypoxic fire prevention method removes a small portion of the oxygen before the fire ever ignites. This completely eliminates the chance of fire and the need for fire suppression. The benefits are obvious – no fire, smoke, water, or chemical damage, and no risk to human life.
The fire ignition threshold of air is 16.2% oxygen. By controlling the oxygen levels to 14-16%, ignition of class A, B, and C fires can be prevented.
Fire prevention via oxygen control has eliminated the need for fire suppression. Traditional means of suppression such as water and chemical agents often cause as much damage to assets as the fire itself.
Prevenex controls the oxygen level to 10-16% oxygen content for fire prevention and suppression. By maintaining oxygen levels within this range, the Prevenex system is safe for humans in contact with this environment.
