Fire Suppression Equipment

Fire suppression equipment can include manual components used by firefighters or automatic systems used in conjunction with automatic fire detection systems. Fire suppression can be accomplished with water supplied through pump and hose systems or sprinkler systems. In environments where the use of water is undesirable, such as facilities containing extensive electronic and computer equipment, fire suppression may be done with compressed gases such as argon or with chemical agents sprayed or spread on the fire.
