Fire Suppression Gases


FM 200 Fire Suppression

FM-200 fire suppressant was actually created in response to the need to find an effective new extinguishing agent to replace ozone-depleting fire suppressants such as Halon. Great Lakes’ lifetime management plan for FM-200 fire suppressant ensures our responsible stewardship from manufacturing through decommissioning. Today, in more than 70 countries across the globe, including nations with some of the world’s toughest standards for environmental protection, FM-200 systems are used to protect critical facilities and valuable assets.

FM-200 waterless fire suppressant is a clean agent that doesn't leave any oily residues, particulates, water or corrosive material. This virtually eliminates damage to high-tech equipment, artwork and other delicate and sensitive objects. After a discharge, FM-200 can be removed by simple ventilation. This allows businesses in many cases to resume their normal operations almost immediately.

FM-200 does not harm the Earth's stratospheric ozone layer. And it stops fires fast. When you consider the potentially devastating environmental effects of an uncontrolled fire, it's easy to see that an FM-200. System is an important part of an environmentally responsible fire suppression solution.

The pace of business is fast. You need a fire suppression strategy that’s faster. For more than 10 years, an FM-200 system has been the answer. The FM-200 suppression system you put in place today can stop a fire tomorrow, next week, or a decade down the road.

FM-200 systems reach extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, stopping ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they cause significant damage. That’s the fastest fire protection available. When fire is extinguished this quickly, it means less damage, lower repair costs, and an extra margin of safety for people.

It also means less downtime and disruption of business. So no matter where technology takes your business in the future, you have the fire suppression technology you need to protect it.Especially in applications where space is at a premium, FM-200 fire suppressant systems are the superior choice. The FM-200 agent is stored in cylinders as a liquid and pressurized with nitrogen, saving huge amounts of storage space. In fact, for the same amount of protection, FM-200 systems take up to seven times less storage space than systems based on CO2 and inert gases.

FM-200 fire suppressant can be safely used where people are present. It is perhaps the most widely tested and studied fire suppression agent available, and is backed by the most comprehensive database of toxicological data of any product of its kind; in fact, the compound has been approved as a replacement for ozone-depleting propellants in pharmaceutical inhalers, such as those used to dispense asthma medications.
