Chemetron FM 200 Suppression System
Chemetron™ FM-200® fire suppression systems work hand-in-hand with state-of-the-art control and detection components to identify and extinguish fires, long before substantial fire damage can occur. Without changing your current control panel or detection systems, an existing system can be easily converted to FM-200® Chemetron™ has integrated state-of-the-art fire detection technology and clean-agent chemistry to provide cost effective fire protection for applications containing high-value critical data and sensitive equipment. FM-200 Clean Agent fire suppression systems provide an environmentally acceptable solution for your fire protection needs, where clean-up presents a problem, where electrically non-conductive medium is needed, and where people compatibility is an overriding factor. A quality fire protection system is much more cost effective than replacing high-value critical data and sensitive electronic equipment. Chemetron™ has integrated state-of-the-art detection technology and clean-agent chemistry to provide affordable fire protection.
Chemetron™ FM200 Approvals & Standards:
Chemetron™ offers programmable releasing panels that are compatible with the fast acting smoke detectors to sense fire in its early stages. Upon system release, the Chemetron™ system will discharge the FM-200 Clean-Agent Suppression System in 10 seconds or less. The gaseous agent then spreads then spreads throughout the hazard area to suppress the fire. This fast reaction can mean the difference between a minor incident and a major loss.
Effective Fire Suppression Agent
Similar to Halon 1301, FM-200 agent extinguishes Class A,B, and C fires by interrupting the chemical chain reaction. Additionally, FM-200 agent has the ability to absorb heat, further speeding up the suppression process. In other words, when you opt for FM-200 as compared with other Halon alternatives agents, less agent can do the same job.
Safe in Occupied Spaces
The U.S.EPA has accepted FM-200 for the use in occupied spaces at concentrations up to 9% by volume and up to 10.5% by volume for normally non-occupied spaces. Therefore, people can be evacuated from the protected area in the presence of FM-200 at design concentrations.
Clean Agent Protects Valuable Assets
When protecting valuable assets or sensitive equipment, FM-200 agent stands above conventional agents. Unlike dry chemical, FM-200 is a colorless, odorless gas that leaves no residue to clean up. Unlike water, FM-200 is an electrically nonconductive agent that will not short-out electronic equipment. And unlike the very cold discharge of carbon dioxide, FM-200 will not thermally shock delicate circuitry.
Typical Applications of Chemetron™ FM200 Clean Agent Systems:
- Cell Sites Computer Rooms & Sub-floors.
- Process Control Rooms.
- Robotic Systems.
- Telecommunications Facilities.
- Telephone Equipment Rooms.
