What Is an FM-200 Fire Suppression System?
Since the banning of new Halon production for environmental purposes, various other clean agents have become available as viable alternatives. FM-200 is one of these. It has the same chemical firefighting properties as Halon, but with non-toxic molecules that are much safer for the environment.
This gaseous fire suppression agent is designed to extinguish flammable liquids and electrical fires in a mere 10 seconds, making it the fastest, most effective waterless fire protection system available today. Plus, it doesn’t leave residue behind, so there’s no cleanup required before you can return to business as usual.
How Does FM-200 Fire Suppression Work?
Fire needs three things to burn: heat, fuel, and oxygen. If any of these elements is missing, the flames go out. FM-200 interferes with the combustion process by removing heat from the fire triangle. It doesn’t remove oxygen from the area or introduce harmful fumes, making it safe to discharge in occupied spaces.
A fixed amount of extinguishing agent, which is stored under pressure in containers, discharges through pipes and nozzles when smoke detectors and heat sensors indicate a fire in the protected area. It’s important to maintain the gas level for 10 minutes to prevent the fire from reigniting. Then, FM-200 can be safely dispersed through natural ventilation with no harm to the environment.
Where Is FM-200 Fire Suppression Used?
FM-200 protects areas where water could cause just as much damage as fire. Its low toxicity means it can discharge with people present. Plus, the non-conductive, non-corrosive characteristics of FM-200 make it appropriate for extinguishing fires in rooms that contain electronics and computers.
Examples of typical applications for FM-200 include:
- Data centers and computer suites
- Museums, libraries, and archive facilities
- Telecommunications centers
- Semiconductor facilities
- Gas turbine enclosures
- Power stations
- Offshore facilities and vessels
