FM-200® is a clean, colorless, and environmentally friendly fire suppression agent that is electrically non-conductive and safe for humans. It extinguishes flames primarily through heat absorption, leaving no residue, thus minimizing downtime after a fire and making FM-200 suppression systems accepted and respected worldwide with over one hundred thousand installations in more than seventy countries.
Typical areas of fire protection
These systems consists of the following components and their associated accessories:
FM-200 fire extinguishing systems are designed to be discharged within 10 seconds into a room, area, or enclosure with the structural integrity to retain the agent. The FM-200 uniformly mixes throughout the protected area achieving a minimum concentration level in accordance with NFPA 2001 and/or agency listings.
Below is a list of the Janus Fire Systems Novec 1230 fluid cylinder assemblies:
FM-200® (HFC-227ea) is formed from the elements carbon, fluorine and hydrogen (CF3CHFCF3 -heptafluoropropane). The primary extinguishing mechanism of FM-200® is heat absorption, with a
secondary chemical contribution from the thermal decomposition of FM-200 in the flame.
FM-200 leaves no residue and is safe for use in occupied spaces.
Most common metals, such as aluminum, brass, steel, cast iron, lead, stainless steel, and copper, as well as rubber, plastic, and electronic components, are unaffected when exposed to FM-200
|Although the EPA Significant New Alternative Program (SNAP) lists FM-200® as acceptable for occupied spaces, NFPA Standard 2001 and SNAP list the following guidelines for human exposure:
The discharge of FM-200® into a hazard may reduce visibility for a brief period. FM-200 may cause frostbite if liquid discharge or escaping vapor contacts the skin.
When FM-200® is exposed to temperatures greater than 1300°F (700°C), the by-product Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) will be formed. FM-200® systems are designed to discharge in 10 seconds or less in order to minimize the amount of HF formed.
The FM-200 Material Safety Datasheet (MSDS) should be read and understood prior to
A cylinder containing FM-200® should be handled carefully. The anti-recoil safety device must be in place at all times when the cylinder is not connected to the discharge piping and restrained.
