WHAT IS FM-200 FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM ?
FM 200 extinguishes fires primarily by physically cooling the flame; removing heat from the flame to the extent that the combustion reaction cannot sustain itself. It is stored as a liquefied gas under pressure, so, comparatively, the installation requires fewer cylinders and is smaller and more cost effective than with other agents in accordance with NFPA 2001 and/or agency listings.
