What is FM 200
FM-200® (Heptafluoropropane) is a compound of carbon, fluorine and hydrogen (CF3CHFCF3). HFC-227ea is a fast acting clean agent fire suppression gas with a wide range of benefits and applications.
Very Fast Stopping Power
FM-200 systems reach extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, stopping ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they cause significant damage. That's the fastest fire protection available, period. When fire is extinguished this quickly, it means less damage, lower repair costs, and an extra margin of safety for people. It also means less downtime and disruption of business.
Eco-Friendly Halon 1301 Replacement
FM-200 is an important part of an environmentally responsible clean agent fire suppression solution with a zero ozone-depleting potential. This makes it a suitable choice for new installations using total flooding systems, and for Halon 1301 replacement applications.
FM-200 is an odorless, colorless, liquefied compressed gas. It is stored as a liquid and dispensed into the hazard as a colorless, electrically non-conductive vapor that is clear and does not obscure vision. It leaves no residue.
Wide Range of Applications
FM-200 provides superior fire protection in a wide range of applications from sensitive electrical equipment to industrial applications using flammable liquids. FM-200 is clean, leaves no residue, thereby eliminating costly after-fire clean-up, and keeping expensive “down-time” to a minimum. Most materials such as steel, stainless steel, brass, and other metals as well as plastics, rubber and electronic components are unaffected by the exposure of FM-200.
Safe for Occupied Spaces
FM-200 fire suppressant can be safely used where people are present when used as specified in the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Significant New Alternative Policy (SNAP). This clean agent extinguishes a fire by a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms. It does not displace oxygen and therefore is safe for use in occupied spaces without fear of oxygen deprivation. This allows personnel to see and breathe, permitting them to leave the fire area safely.
When lives and mission critical assets are at risk, you cannot afford to settle for minimum fire protection. FM-200 clean agent fire suppression systems are a superior choice.
