What is an inert gas
Inert Gases are naturally occurring gases. The air we breath every day is surrounded with them. We are enclosed by inert gases These are not fossil or human made or gases. While nowadays we are more focused to do works greener or supporting our environment.Inert gases are one of the best choice. Because, when comparing with all other clean agents these are the most greener. Inert gases are explained as using one or more of the gasses such as helium, Nitrogen or argon. Even CO2 is also found in one of the inert gas blends. Inert gasses work by removing the oxygen from the fire risk area to a point where it will not support a fire, but threat to human life is not created due to this gas.
Inert gas fire suppression systems use natural way to extinguish a fire also in a safer way. Because of its distinctive valve assembly, inert gas agent requires 60 seconds to enter the fire risk room within the industry but at a steady flow rate. This prevents any negative turbulence from occurring. This constant flow rate adds an advantage to use low pressure piping with small-diameter, connecting from the inert gas container to the nozzle which also reduces cost.
WORKING OF INERT GAS FIRE SYSTEMS
When considering all other types of fire suppression systems to install at a building, the owner is likely to take references know more about inert gas fire systems. Sometimes it is also called as clean agent fire suppression or gaseous fire suppression equipment. While thinking about environmentally friendly systems these systems are most preferred among other fire suppression system. Before choosing the option for the new system take sometime to understand more about how inert gas fire suppression system works.
The Basic Principal
The trick behind an inert gas fire system is to decrease the amount of oxygen present in the spaces where the fire has occurred. This is important because in order to spread fires oxygen is important.
While the oxygen level is decreased, keep in mind that it does not remove all the oxygen from the space. There is still enough oxygen available to support proper breathing till occupants in that particular area moves along the exit route and exits from the building.

How do Inert Gases work as a fire suppression system.
There is approximately 21% of Oxygen in the air we breath. Oxygen is the team leader in a fire in helping spreading of fire as well as we require oxygen to be alive.
By removing the oxygen, we will reach the aim to extinguish a fire, but that faces other problems. How do we maintain the oxygen level required to keep us alive at the same time?
More than 15% Oxygen is required by the fire to start burning. If the level of oxygen is below this, then it will not be enough for a fire to sustain combustion.
In reality. we only need 12% and more of oxygen to keep us alive. To extinguish fire and sustain our life, there is a need to decrease level of oxygen from 21% to a lower level of 15%, but not less than 12%. This will extinguish fire and helps in keeping us alive without any suffocation at the same time.
