Argon is not a typical fire extinguishing agent, but works like CO2, by displacing the atmospheric oxygen. The extinguishing effect here is purely physical in nature, namely the suffocating effect which occurs when oxygen is reduced below the specific level required for combustion of a specific material. “CO2” has always been a particularly well-proven, efficient and approved solution and is at present a pragmatic alternative when converting from Halon systems and also for first time installations in such typical risk areas.
