Fire Suppression System
A fire suppression system is an engineered group of units that are built to extinguish fires through the application of a substance. Most commonly, a fire suppression system has built-in components that detect fires at the beginning stages through heat, smoke, and other warning signals. These are attached to an alarm system that will alert you when the fire has been detected and initiate steps for action to further suppress the fire. The majority of fire suppression systems will automatically release the application of an external substance to extinguish the fire after the detection and/or alert. However, some fire suppression systems have a manual application release.
FM200 Fire Suppression System
FM-200 is compressed liquefied gas used to extinguish fires and is a popular replacement for Halon fire suppression systems. FM fire suppression systems are pressurized with nitrogen, waterless, and upon activation, FM-200™ discharges as a gas to suppress the fire.
- A direct release system can be installed to protect multiple enclosures using a single cylinder by routing additional tubing to each enclosed space.
- Both direct and indirect systems are available in low- and high-pressure functionality for areas of any size. A fire suppression specialist will determine which system is right for your application.
Co2 Fire Suppression System
- During a fire, the portion of the tube nearest the point where the most heat is detected ruptures, forming a comprehensive spray nozzle.
- The pressure decreases as the tubing releases the entire contents of the cylinder through the spray nozzle (burst hole) to effectively suppress the fire.
