Mission Critical Equipment Requires Special Fire Suppression Considerations
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 – require special fire suppression considerations and advanced planning. If your building houses mission critical electronics and you have limited space, consider FM-200 (FM200), a Halon alternative waterless fire suppression system that is specifically designed to protect sensitive computer, electronics and telecommunications equipment.
How FM-200 Works
FM-200 is a clean agent fire suppression system designed specifically to protect sensitive electronic equipment. FM-200 suppresses a fire fast using a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms. FM-200 discharges gas (1,1,1,2,3,3,3-Heptafluoropropane) directly onto the surface of combustible materials.
FM-200 deploys quickly and cleanly – it won’t leave behind oily residue, particulate or water. FM-200 is one of the fastest suppression systems available; its extinguishing levels are typically reached in ten seconds or less. This extreme speed results in less damage, lower repair costs and shorter downtime.
Typical Customers Using FM-200 Systems
FM-200 can be safely used where people are working and present. Common environments using FM-200 for fire suppression are businesses, government buildings, universities, hospitals, museums and many others. Worldwide, over 100,000 systems have been installed to date. The FM-200 agent is stored in cylinders as 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.
