    CO₂ system

    The Unitor CO2 system is a total flooding system designed to suppress fires in machinery spaces of Category A, engine rooms, pump rooms and cargo holds. It has been supplied to hundreds of vessels and offshore installations worldwide.

  • high-foam-man-in-foam1600x900

    Fixed high expansion foam system

    The Unitor high expansion foam fire extinguishing system (Unitor high foam system) uses foam consisting of a synthetic foam concentrate, water and air, which is highly effective for machinery space applications. The system is designed as total flooding system for machinery spaces of Category A, cargo pump rooms and other enclosed spaces onboard vessels and offshore installations.

  • deckfoam-demo-1600x900

    Deck foam system

    The Unitor Low Expansion Foam fire extinguishing system (Unitor Low Foam system) uses a non-toxic foam concentrate, water and air to effectively extinguish fires in open spaces. The system provides safe and effective protection, and is harmless to the crew and environment.

  • dcp-hose-station1600x900

    Dry chemical powder system

    The Unitor dry chemical powder fire extinguishing system (Unitor DCP system) is designed for use on “B” and “C” class fires. The system uses dry powder which breaks down the chemical reaction within the fire and subsequently suppresses the flames almost immediately.

Our inert gas systems

  • IGG generator grey

    Inert gas generator solutions

    Vessels carrying cargos that produce hydrocarbon vapors require an inerting solution to eliminate the risk of explosions and fires in the cargo tanks. This can be achieved by keeping the oxygen content below 8%,a standard set by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).

  • product6_large

    Nitrogen system

    The system is designed to protect transportation of flammable and sensitive cargo. As an inert gas medium, nitrogen is the purest, and thereby the preferred solution for applications where cargo contamination could be an issue.

  • Digg system illustration

    Dry inert gas generator

    Vessels carrying liquefied gas need an inerting solution to prevent explosion on sea voyage just before and after dry-docking. This can be achieved by keeping the oxygen level below 1% in the cargo area.

  • Dual Fuel Inert gas generator

    Dual fuel inert gas generator

    The inert gas generator described earlier, can also be designed for dual fuel operation, i.e. marine diesel oil and natural gas.This application is most commonly used on FPSO vessels and other offshore installations where natural gas is available.

  • Flexinert gas generator

    Flexinert is a combination of a flue gas system and an inert gas generator. As long as sufficient boiler flue gas is available, the inert gas generator is by-passed and the system works as a flue gas system. When no basis gas is available, it works as an inert gas generator.

  • Flue gas system

    These systems cool and clean flue gas available from the ship’s boilers and distribute the gas to the cargo tanks, typically during cargo discharge.
