FM200 Gas Flooding Systems

 FM200 Cylinders

 FM200 Benefits

  • Non-corrosive
  • No Clean-up required
  • No risk to humans
  • Fast Acting
  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Zero ozone depleting potential.
  • Safe for occupied areas.
  • Requires minimal container storage space.
  • Simple Installation

FM200's qualities makes it ideal for IT applications such as Server Rooms, telecommunications, clean rooms and many other commercial and industrial fire protection applications. Compared with many other extinguishing agents FM200 uses less weight of agent and takes up less storage space. The United States Environmental Protection Agency's SNAP Report states: "HFC227ea (FM200) is the most effective of the proposed HFC substitutes."

Gas Flooding Co2

The FM-200 fire extinguishant is stored in welded mild steel FM-200 cylindrical containers which are designed, manufactured and tested to BS5045 Part 2 for FM-200 use, and pressurised with dry Nitrogen to 25 bar 20C.

The extinguishant storage containers are capable of configuration into modular or central storage installations. Every container is fitted with a valve to enable the contents to be discharged through system pipework and nozzles within 10 seconds.

A discharge pressure switch can be fitted to the distribution pipework via a pilot loop. The pressure switch has a manual reset facility and is wall mounted.Normally the system is switched to automatic mode. However, subject to local regulations, it may be necessary for the system to be switched to manual mode when the area is occupied. A pre-discharge alarm is to be sounded on system operation to alert anyone still in the area. All FM-200 flow calculations are supported by a computer program and print-out.
