Total Flooding System

The FM-200* Total Flooding Fire Suppression System is an engineered system utilizing a fixed nozzle agent distribution network. The system is designed and installed in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 2001, “Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems.” When properly designed, the FM-200 system can suppress a surface burning fire in Class A, B, and C hazards.

The firefighting ability of the FM-200 system is achieved through 80% heat absorption and 20% direct chemical means (action of the fluorine radical on the chain reaction of a flame). Fire suppression using the FM-200 system has the following advantages:

  • Most effective when used with automatic detection to rapidly introduce FM-200 fire extinguishing agent
  • The ability to prevent re-ignition when concentration levels are maintained
  • Clean agent suitable for protection of high value assets

Features

  • Early Stage fire Detection
  • Extinguish fire within 10 secs
  • No Post Fire Damage

System Operation

The basic system consists of suppressing agent stored in high strength steel containers. Manual or automatic actuators are available for release of the agent into the hazard area. The agent is distributed and discharged through fixed piping and nozzles. Each nozzle is designed to deliver a uniform discharge of agent into the protected area. On large hazards, containers can be manifold together. The containers are connected to the manifold by means of a flexible discharge bend and check valve.

Automatic actuation is accomplished through an approved detection system. When a fire condition causes the detector(s) located in the hazard area to go into alarm, a signal is sent to the detection control panel. This causes actuation of the release circuit, which electrically operates the actuator located on the container valve. The actuator opens the valve and allows the agent to enter the piping network and discharge out the nozzles.
