FM-200® clean agent fire extinguishing systems are the most widely used of all the halocarbon gaseous agents, and is universally accepted as the best agent used to replace Halon 1301. FM-200® is a chemical agent used primarily in total flooding systems and is used in over 200,000 systems installed worldwide. FM-200® fire suppression systems protect everything from computer rooms / data centres, telecommunications facilities, and switch gear to military vehicles, high tech medical applications, and pleasure craft to priceless works of art and historic landmarks around the world.
Selector Valves allow a single agent supply to be utilised for protection of multiple hazards, reducing the total amount of agent required.
Instructional signs must be supplied in order to provide a system in which the function of all devices is easy to understand. Fike offers several different “Standard” signs to comply with N.F.P.A. and other industry requirements. The following signs are applicable and utilised in the United Kingdom market.
Fike Clean Agent Containers are used in fire extinguishing systems to store the Clean Agent until a fire develops and the agent must be released. The Clean Agent is retained in the container by a Impulse Valve assembly which contains a fast-acting rupture disc. The disc will be ruptured, and the Clean Agent released, through the operation of an actuator by an electric signal that is automatically, manually or pneumatically controlled.
HFC-227ea provides superior fire protection in a wide range of applications from sensitive electrical equipment to industrial applications using flammable liquids. HFC-227ea is ideal for applications where clean-up of other media presents a problem, where weight versus suppression potential is a factor, where an electrically non-conductive medium is needed and where people compatibility is an overriding factor.
The function of the Fike discharge nozzle is to control the agent flow and distribute the agent throughout the protected enclosure in a uniform, predetermined pattern and concentration. Nozzles are made of aluminum and is anodized with a dull gray finish to prevent corrosion.
Instructional signs are used to provide the necessary information to personnel in the area and to comply with NFPA 2001 requirements. The caution lettering and backgrounds meet the requirements of ANSI Z535. The sign are made from flame retardant, Lexan™ polycarbonate material. Each sign has an adhesive backing mounting purposes. These signs are an optional item and must be ordered separately.
The Impulse Valve Operator (IVO) provides means to electrically or manually activate the Fike Impulse Valve clean agent container by providing the force required to extend a piston that will open the rupture disc, allowing the agent to be released from the container.
The Impulse Valve Pneumatic Operator (IVPO) provides the means to pneumatically activate the Fike Impulse Valve clean agent container by providing the force required to extend a piston that will open the rupture disc, allowing the agent to be released from the container.
Check Valves are used to prevent agent loss from the open end of a manifold and/or piping system in the event that one or more containers are removed for servicing / maintenance.
Discharge Pressure Switch (DPS) is used to provide a positive pneumatic confirmation to the control system that the Fike Fire Suppression system has been discharged.
Fike offers an optional Low Pressure Switch (LPS) for the purpose of continuously monitoring the container pressure for a low-pressure condition.
The 1” and 3” Impulse Valves are a rupture disc (metal diaphragm), pressure operated device that allows the agent to be released from the container and into the protected enclosure via the associated piping network and discharge nozzle(s).
Mounting Straps / Brackets are used to secure containers to a wall or other suitable mounting surface.These devices are supplied with each container purchased in accordance with the information shown below.
Pipe and fittings used in Clean Agent System piping network must conform to the requirements as outlined in NFPA 2001, latest edition.
The Liquid Level Indicator (LLi) provides a means of verifying the weight of agent in a container without having to remove the container and weigh it on a calibrated scale.
Flammable liquid storage facilities are in many industrial and chemical plants as well as production facilities that use flammable liquids in various processes. These facilities store the flammable liquids used in processes such as painting, lubrication, fuel, and oil in areas called “Flammable Liquid Storage Areas”. These areas are segregated due to the special and careful handling required when using the flammable liquid.
Due to concerns over more efficient cooling of equipment and the need to reduce operating costs, today’s data centers are going through an efficiency evolution. Often changes include Hot Aisle / Cold Aisle Configurations, Aisle Containment Curtains, Hot Aisle Containment, and Cold Aisle Containment.
