SYSTEM OPERATION The basic system consists of extinguishing agents stored in high strength steel cylinders. Manual or Automatic actuators are available for release of the agent into the hazard area. The agent is distributed and discharged into hazard area through fix piping and nozzles. Each nozzle is design to deliver a uniform discharge of agent into protected area. On large hazards, cylinders can be manifolded together. The cylinders are connected to the manifold by means of flexible discharge bend and check valve. Automatic actuation is accomplished through an approved detection system. When a fire condition cause the detectors 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 eletrically operates the actuator located on cylinder valve. The actuator opens the valve and allows the agent to enter the piping network and discharge out the nozzles.
The fire trace indirect unit can be used, but are not limited, to protect the following:
Eletrical and electronic cabinet
Data Processing areas and cabinets
Other high value assets
Laboratory fume/exhaust cabinets
Flammable chemical storage cabinets
Computer/Data storage cabinets
CNC & VMC machining centers
Many others applications
FM-200 is a gaseous fire-extinguishing agent that is effective for use on:
Class A-Surface Type Fires
Class B-Flammable Liquid Fires
Class C-Electrical Equipment Fires
FM-200 should not be used where the following materials may be present:
Pyrotechnic chemicals containing there own oxygen supply.
Reactive metals such as lithium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, titanium, zirconium, uranium, plutonium.
Chemicals capable of undergoing autothermal decomposition, such as certain organic peroxides and hydrazine.
