FM-200 for Mission Critical Equipment Fire Suppression
Many fire suppression systems can damage or destroy the very equipment they’re meant to protect. Sensitive computer, electronic, and telecommunications equipment—like that found in data centers, telecommunication facilities, and other tech businesses—requires special fire suppression considerations and advanced planning. If your building houses mission-critical electronics and you have limited space, consider FM-200, a Halon alternative waterless fire suppression system that is specifically designed to protect sensitive computer, electronics, and telecommunications equipment.
How Does FM-200 Work?
FM-200 is a clean agent fire suppression system designed specifically to protect sensitive electronic equipment. FM-200 suppresses fires fast using a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms. It discharges gas (1,1,1,2,3,3,3-Heptafluoropropane) directly onto the surface of combustible materials. Heat is absorbed from the surface of the burning material(s), thereby lowering the material’s temperature below the ignition point.
FM-200 deploys quickly and cleanly—it won’t leave behind an oily residue, particulate, or water. FM-200 is one of the fastest suppression systems available; its extinguishing levels are typically reached in 10 seconds or less. This extreme speed results in less damage, lower repair costs, and shorter downtime—not to mention a greater window of safety for any people that may be involved in the fire.
What Environments Need FM-200 Systems?
FM-200 can be safely used where people are working and present. In fact, the active compound in FM-200 is so safe that it has been approved for use as a propellant in inhalers to dispense asthma medicine. Common environments using FM-200 for fire suppression are businesses, government buildings, universities, hospitals, museums, and many others.
The FM-200 agent is stored in cylinders as a liquid. Pressurization is achieved using nitrogen which saves huge amounts of storage space. FM-200 takes up to seven times less storage space than systems based on CO2 and inert gases. When discharged, the liquid flows through a network of piping into the protected area where it vaporizes.
