FM200 Gas Extinguishing System
General FM-200 Fire Suppression System is an engineered system utilizing a xed nozzle agent distribution network. The system is designed and installed in accordance with the National FIre Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 2001, “Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing System.” When properly designed, the FM-200 system will supress surface burning re in Class A, B, and C hazards.
80% of FM-200 re ghting effectiveness is achieved through heat absorption and 20% through direct chemical means (action of the uorine radical on the chain reaction of a ame). Complete suppression using FM-200 has the following advantages:
• The low concentration of FM-200 required means less visual obscurity and minimal risk to personnel. • The small quantity of agent discharged minimizes overpressurization of the protected area.
• Maximum safety for personnel due to low toxicity.
• Most effective when used with automatic detection to introduce FM-200 rapidly.
• The ability to prevent re-ignition as long as concentration levels are maintained.
