Conventional Gas Suppression Detection Panel
A Gas suppression panel is a control unit used in fire suppression systems that employ gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), Halocarbon agent or Inert Gases to extinguish fires. The panel is responsible for controlling the release of gas from the storage cylinders or tanks and directing it to the protected area.
The gas suppression panel is typically located near the protected area and includes a set of sensors that detect fire and initiate the release of gas. In addition to controlling the release of gas, the suppression panel may also include alarms and other safety features that warn occupants of the protected area to evacuate before the gas is released. These safety features help prevent injury or harm to individuals who may be present during a fire event.
Overall, the gas suppression panel plays a critical role in ensuring the effective operation of gas-based fire suppression systems, protecting property and lives in the event of a fire.
