Fire Fighting Systems

Fires inside of pressure chambers have been rather seldom in comparison to the operation times of these chambers. However, the occurred fires have developed amazingly fast, and have been deadly for the occupants in those cases where the oxygen proportion of the chamber air exceeds 21 %.

Fires in hyperbaric atmosphere are hardly to be controlled:

  • because of the higher oxygen partial pressure in the chamber atmosphere,
  • because of the occurring high temperatures and the therefore resulting pressure increase,
  • because of the short period until the occurrence of irreversible damage,
  • because of the restricted effectiveness  of fire extinguishing means used.


For these reasons prevention is extremely important and has to be obtained without compromise!
