 The chemical composition of Fm-200 (HFC 227ea) is known as Heptafluoropropane.  A compound consisting of carbon, fluorine and hydrogen.

 

 

Fm200 is identified as a fast, clean fire protection agent. It is a colorless, odorless gas that is stored in cylinders as a liquid and pressurized with nitrogen, it discharges through nozzles attached to a piping network which is activated by a control system that consists of automatic smoke detection, saving a huge storage space in the protected area. Historically, Fm-200 system was introduced as a Halon replacement in December 31, 1993. By then it quickly became accepted worldwide as the worlds leading clean gaseous fire extinguishing agent with a track record in protection of the world’s most critical and irreplaceable properties and assets.

 

Today, Fm-200 system is widely used in more than 70 countries across the world including nations where some strict standards for environmental protection apply.

 

 

 

Fm200 Extinguishing Effectiveness 

 

Fm-200 systems can hit the extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, blocking ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they cause major damage. That’s a very swift and effective fire protection system, which results to less downtime, less damage, less costs of repair, in addition to enhanced security and safety for people. 

 

 

 

Environment Friendly

 

Fm-200 does not contain bromine or chlorine, therefore it has zero ozone depleting potential (ODP). With its zero ODP, it presents a long-term solution to fire protection requirements, in which the atmospheric lifetime of Fm200 is between 31 and 42 years.

 

 

 

Safety 

 

Fm-200 has been proven to be less toxic than Halon 1301, which can be safely used when people are present. Fm-200 is a clean agent that does not leave any oily residues, particulates, water or corrosive material that could damage high-tech equipment. Also, it presents a healthy environment to occupants. In fact, after a discharge, Fm-200 can be removed by ventilation, which allows businesses to resume their operations immediately. 

 

 

 

Storage

 

In comparison with Halon 1301, Fm-200 systems require little floor storage space, which presents one of the most important benefits of Fm-200 systems.  The Fm-200 agent is stored in cylinders as liquid, and once pressurization is achieved using nitrogen, it saves huge amounts of storage space. Fm-200 takes up to seven times less storage space that systems based on inert gases. This translated to more room for revenue generating cargo or passenger ships.
