The World's Most Trusted Choice in Clean Agent Fire Suppression

In applications around the world, whenever or wherever fire is a potential threat, FM-200 fire suppression systems are a natural choice. The FM-200 fire extinguishing agent is available only from Great Lakes Chemical Corporation and its exclusive fire suppression system manufacturer partners. Only FM-200 has achieved component recognition from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Factory
Mutual Research (FM)-your guarantee of a fire extinguishant that meets the industry's strictest standards for quality. Only FM-200 system dealers can offer customers the powerful fire protection advantages of FM-200 suppression systems.

Created for today-and tomorrow

The production phase-out of ozone-depleting substances dictated by the Montreal Protocol effectively ended the use of Halon 1301 as an agent in new fire suppression systems; in fact, governments worldwide have already mandated the decommissioning of Halon 1301 systems, and you can expect to see more governments do the same in the near future.

The good news is the FM-200 agent was developed to meet today's need for a reliable, effective, clean agent that won't harm the environment. Better yet, it's going to be around for a long time. Fire suppression systems containing the FM-200 agent already meet the rigid standards set forth by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under its Significant New Alternatives Program (SNAP), as well as directives established by many countries around the world.

FM-200 (HFC-227) Fire Suppression Systems

HFC-227 (FM-200), chemically known as heptafluoropropane, is an alternative fire suppression system agent manufactured in the United States by Great Lakes Chemical (FM-200) and DuPont Corporation (HFC-227). It is a replacement for the ozone depleting Halon 1301 used extensively before 1994.

FM-200 (HFC-227) has no ozone depletion potential. Its ODP is zero. FM-200 has found by leading toxicologists to be safe for use when people are present. Just as with Halon 1301, people can be exposed to normal extinguishing concentrations of without any fear of health problems.

At Reliable Fire Equipment we represent Fike Protection Systems and Kidde. Kidde and Fike Protection Systems have conducted extensive testing over the past several years and has developed the necessary knowledge to incorporate FM-200 into is fire suppression system product line.

Often FM-200 systems are employed to protect critical installations formerly protected by Halon 1301. These include:
• Data Processing Centers
• Telephone Switches
• Process Control Rooms
• Art and Historical Collections
• Facilities where water damage from sprinklers must be
  avoided at all costs
In a typical system the extinguishing agent is typically stored in cylinders or spheres. It is delivered to distribution nozzles through a system piping network.

Critical to the functioning of the system is the fire detection and control network. Typically smoke detectors sense the presence of fire in the protected facility. The detection and control panel then sounds an alarm, shuts down air handlers, disconnects power from the protected equipment, and then releases agent into the protected area.
At Reliable Fire Equipment we make use of the Fike Intella-Scan Fire Detection Control Panel to control the release of agent. The Intella-Scan II control system uses both intelligent addressable analog sensors and centralized decision making to virtually eliminate false alarms and unwanted agent releases. The sensors report environmental conditions on a real-time basis to the control unit where the microcontroller makes the ultimate alarm decision. And the control panel is modular to allow you to add on to the system as your requirements change over time.

Assembling all the components together into a workable system optimized for your facility is the work of trained fire protection engineers. At Reliable Fire Equipment our engineering group will design your system, prepare shop drawings, flow and battery calculations, and provide you the hard data you need to rest assured in the confidence of a well designed fire protection system.
