If the highly sensitive TITANUS® air sampling smoke detectors detect a fire in the earliest stages, the oxygen level is reduced first of all from 20.9 vol% to 17 vol% by gently introducing nitrogen from stored pressurized vessels. Reducing the oxygen concentration significantly impairs the development of the fire meaning that ideally the fire is already put out at this stage. An OxyReduct® P-Line then maintains the lowered oxygen level of 17 vol% for as long as necessary by generating nitrogen on site. This means that Telehouse employees can look for the cause of the fire and remove it thanks to the freely accessible protected area.
If the TITANUS® devices still detect a fire, the oxygen concentration is lowered again; this time to 13.8 vol%. Even at this oxygen level, Telehouse employees can still access the protected area to eliminate the cause of the fire. The OxyReduct® P-Line maintains this level for as long as necessary.
