Fire suppression is also a recipient of the application of modern technology. One of the latest developments in fire suppression is the FM200. FM200, also known as heptafluoroporpane (CF3CHFCF3) is an extinguishing agent made of a clean gas that is widely accepted as a versatile replacement to Halon. It extinguishes fires by a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms. It is colourless and odourless making it electrically non-conductive. This is most applicable to facilities that have electrical or electronic installations such as computer rooms. This is also very applicable to archives and other document depository facilities. FM200 is also suitable for type A ,B and C type fires and FM200 can be safely deployed as a suppressant where people are present.
FM200 offers the following features and benefits. It is suitable to be stored in welded high pressure cylinders which saves space and money and does not leave residue once they are discharged, which means no additional cleaning is needed. With a discharge time of 10 seconds, it is quicker to use than other extinguishing agents. It is safe to use as it passes ISO 14520 and NFPA 2001 standards. Lastly, the best thing about FM200 is it has zero ozone depletion potential, making it very friendly to the environment.
FM200 fire suppressant can be safely used where people are present.
There are only a few products that are effective and yet do not harm the environment. FM200 is one of them and this makes it one of the most ideal products to use in fire suppression systems.
