Many Halocarbon agents are developed as an alternative to Halon 1301 for total flooding application, to meet critical need for a clean, efficient, environmentally acceptable, and safe extinguishing media. FM-200 is an extinguishing agent that meets all of these needs.

Why FM - 200

 

FM-200 gas is manufactured by M/s. Great Lakes Chemical Corporation (GLCC) and is the new solution to replace Halon 1301 in fire protection applications. FM - 200 (CF3CHFCF3 HEPTAFLOUROPROPANE) is a clean, efficient, environmentally acceptable, and leaves no residue, thus minimizing any downtime after a fire. It has a Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP = 0) many applications require clean extinguishants for use on active electrical systems or Class C fires. FM-200 has been shown to be electrically non-conductive and is safe for electrically charged e quipment. It is colourless, odourless and suppresses fire by interrupting the combustion process and affecting the available oxygen content in the area of the discharge .

FM-200 provides protection equal to that of Halon 1301. It rapidly extinguishes fires through a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms. The minimum design concentration of FM-200 is 7% by volume, compared to 5% for Halon 1301. This means that only 70% more agent by weight is required as compared to a typical Halon 1301 system, additional storage space requirements are minimal. There is no need to clutter a facility with bulky racks of heavy, high-pressure cylinders such as those used in inert gas systems.

The fixed FM-200 (HFC-227ea) extinguishing system is designed, installed and commissioned in accordance with the latest version of National Fire Protection Association Standard NFPA 2001, (standard on Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems)

FM-200 is stored as liquid in seamless steel containers and superpressurised with nitrogen to 360 / 600 psig (25/42 Bar) to increase its discharge flow characteristics.

Worldwide supply of FM-200 gas by M/s. Great Lake Chemical Corporation for Fire Extinguishing application is through six authorised OEM suppliers. Siemens, Cerberus Division is one of them.

Unlike other manufacturer, Cerberus offers High Pressure (42 Bar) FM-200 system. It offers better performance due to high pressure technology. It ensures that FM-200 storage pressure is 42 bar and minimum operating pressure at the nozzle is 10 bar.
