Argonite System – TG 55

Argonite Fire Protection Systems are clean agent, automatic extinguishing systems that use Argonite (IG-55) and consist of four basic components and their associated accessories:
– Argonite Cylinders and Components,
– Completer Kits,
– Control Panels,
– Detection and Alarm Devices.

Argonite is an inert gas mixture, in equal parts, of Nitrogen and Argon. Both substances are naturally occurring and present in the atmosphere. Argonite is safe tor use in occupied spaces and poses no threat to the environment.


Argonite is a mixture of 50% pure Nitrogen and 50% pure Argon. Argonite contains only naturally occurring substances, and as such, has no ozone depletion potential and no direct global warming potential. Argonite extinguishes by means of reducing the oxygen content within a room to the point at which fire can no longer burn, but without compromising the safety of individuals present. There are no toxicological factors associated with the use of Argonite. Argonite will not decompose or produce any by-products when expose to a flame from a fire condition. Argonite systems are designed to extinguish fires with a minimum agent concentration of 37.9% achieved within one minute. This results in extinguishment of the fire and an oxygen concentration of 13%. Argonite is stored as a gas within the cylinder assembly. It is available at a storage pressure of 2900 PSl (200 bar).
