FM-200 provides excellent fire protection in a wide range of applications from sensitive electrical equipment to industrial applications using flammable liquids. FM-200 agent is used in total flooding fire suppression systems. FM-200 is ideal for applications where clean-up of other media presents a problem, where weight versus suppression potential is a factor, where an electrically non-conductive medium is needed and where people compatibility is necessary.
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 and has acceptable toxicity for use in occupied spaces at design concentration. FM-200 extinguishes a fire by a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms. FM-200 does not work by displacing oxygen and is safe for use in occupied spaces without fear of oxygen deprivation.
Features & Benefits
- Colorless, odorless, liquefied compressed gas
- Stored as a liquid
- Electrically non-conductive
- Discharges as a gaseous vapor (due to its relatively low boiling point)
- Zero ozone depleting potential
- Included on the U.S. EPA Significant New Alternative Policy (SNAP) rules
- Requires minimal storage
- Safe for people
FM-200 extinguishes a fire primarily through Heat Absorption that occurs as the agent changes from a liquid to a vapor during discharge. In addition, FM-200 also disrupts the combustion reaction which aids in the extinguishment of a fire. FM-200 does not use the depletion of oxygen to extinguish a fire.
