SESHA 2017 Symposium Abstract

Oxygen Reduction Fire Protection Systems

James, Robert

Oxygen Reduction Fire Protection Systems– Oxygen reduction fire protection systems are an emerging technology intended to prevent ignition and flame spread within an enclosed space. Oxygen within the space is displaced with nitrogen to a flame-inhibiting, material-dependent volumetric concentration. UL has published an Outline of Investigation for oxygen reduction fire protection systems and offers a system certification. UL will discuss the application of these systems and the considerations during the fire protection system design process.
