FM200® (HFC 227ea), chemically as Heptafluoropropane is a colourless gas which is liquified under pressure for storage. Like Halon 1301 it has a low toxicity level and is superpressurised with Nitrogen to 24.8bar (360psi). It rapidly extinguishes most commonly found fires through a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms.
FM200® has been found to be less toxic than Halon 1301, which makes it safe for use in the fully automatic mode in occupied areas.
Typically FM200® requires a design concentration of 7%, which is well below the 9% No Observable Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) on cardiac sensitisation. The NOAEL for Halon 1301 is only 5% (the same as its design concentration).
INERGEN Protects PropertyExcellent retention time within the room. One of the greatest failings of Halon systems is the speed with which the Halon gas escapes from the room after discharge. The mixture specification of INERGEN overcomes this problem by bringing the relative density of INERGEN close to that of air. The result is outstanding hold time performance for INERGEN.No corrosive decomposition products. INERGEN does not chemically interfere with the fire and hence does not form any corrosive decomposition products in the fire.
Proven Fire Fighting PerformanceINERGEN has an impressive track record of fire fighting around the world with millions of pounds worth of equipment and production saved by the fast acting capability of INERGEN.
