FM200 Gas Fire Extinguishing Systems  

FM-200® extinguishing agent is a clean gas widely accepted as substitute to Halon.  FM-200® or heptafluoropropane (CF3CHFCF3), is suitable for the protection of most hazards where Halon 1301 had to be applied in the past. Because FM-200® is not electrical conductive, (but it is odourless and colourless).  it is effective in the protection of electrical hazards, such as computer  rooms.

Furthermore, it is suitable for class A fires (fires including solid materials] as well as for class 8 fires (flammable liquids].


Suitable for occupied areas
Discharge time:10 seconds
No residue to clean up after discharge
Widely accepted as substitute to Halon 1301
Compliance with standards IS0-14520 and NFPA 2001
Suitable for storage in welded high pressure cylinders, saving space and money
Electrically non - conductive
Zero Ozone Depletion Potential

Where To Use It:
With electrical or electronic equipment
Cable ducts
Engine rooms
Flammable liquids
Hazards with people inside
FM-200® extinguishes fires mainly by physical means, weakening and extinguishing the fire by absorbing heat.
Once discharged, FM-200® extinguishes   the fire quickly reducing   to   a minimum   damages to property and valuable equipment, likewise ensuring total safety to persons.
LPG systems containing FM-200® are designed to discharge   within   10 seconds.  Extinguishing agent pressurized with dry Nitrogen at 42 bar and stored in steel cylinders fitted  with approved valves.
