The Fire triangle

A fire needs Heat, Fuel, and Oxygen to start and survive. Take any of these elements away to prevent ignition and avoid combustion.

Heat is needed to raise the fuel to its minimum ignition temperature.

Fuel must be available for ignition. It may be in the form of a solid, a flammable liquid, or gaseous state.

Oxygen, or any other oxidizer, combines with other elements provided by the fuel to feed the fire. Remove the oxygen, and the fire dies.

Always on oxygen reduction system

Storex's solution relies on hypoxic air for fire prevention via the use of controlled atmosphere technology, also known as oxygen reduction.

The system is based on a permanent reduction of the oxygen concentration in the protected spaces, thus eliminating one side of the fire triangle.

Traditional fire suppression systems extinguish fires after they are detected. Hypoxic air is able to prevent fires altogether.

Most fires require a Minimum Oxygen Concentration (MOC) of 17% by volume, depending on the fuel available.

Diluting the oxygen concentration to below the MOC hinders the reaction from generating enough energy to heat the fuel to the extent required for the self-propagation of the flame.
