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 Fire Suppression Systems Work
FM-200 is a clean agent fire suppression system designed specifically to protect sensitive electronic equipment. FM-200 suppresses 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. It is one of the fastest suppression systems available; its extinguishing levels are typically reached in 10 seconds or fewer. This extreme speed results in less damage, lower repair costs, and shorter downtime.
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.
