Abstract : An automatic fire-inerting system utilizes a fire-inerting agent in an enclosed area to prevent a fire while allowing human habitability. The system comprises an analyzer for continuously monitoring the concentration of the agent and initiating a timed sequence when the concentration of the agent rises above or falls below a given level, a solenoid valve for releasing the agent upon analyzer instruction, and an over-level relay for initiating rapid ventilation of the compartment upon analyzer instruction.
