In today’s world all around the globe fire prevention is done by use of semi computerised Oxygen Reduction System. It is one of the very fine and established technological advances that is available to control indoor fires.
This innovative technology is quite unique because it prevents expansion of fire by creating an hypoxic environment. It works on the principle that a fire will be impossible to expand where there is lower level of oxygen in and a brief reduction in oxygen just by a couple of percent extinguishes the fire.
This way it achieves its by masking the fire by various non inflammable chemicals . Its goal to control the fire by maintaining low oxygen levels thus prevents ignition of flame ,even in the presence of highly combustible substances.
It is a highly used tech, in plastic factories, warehouses, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
