FM-200 Suppression System

FM-200 Fire Suppression Systems

Clean Agent Technology for Enhanced Safety


Those responsible for managing and protecting high-value assets, processes, and facilities demand the quality fire suppression offered by the ANSUL® FM-200™ Clean Agent Fire Suppression System. FM-200 systems are internationally accepted as providing reliable, effective, affordable fire protection solutions for applications found in telecommunication sites, data centers and archives, museums, oil and gas facilities, power plants, and more.

The ANSUL FM-200 Clean Agent Fire Suppression System is approved by Factory Mutual (FM) and listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for Class A, B, and C fires. Safe for use in occupied areas at the design concentration, the system helps protect critical infrastructure and delivers effective asset protection.

The system uses an FM-200 (HFC-227ea) fire extinguisher with zero ozone depletion (ODP). This colorless, odorless agent vaporizes upon discharge and absorbs heat to suppress fire, leaving no residue to clean up rapidly. It is electrically nonconductive and will not short out electronic equipment or thermally shock delicate circuitry, resulting in less damage to critical equipment, facilitating a much shorter recovery time and reducing downtime.

Advantages of FM-200
  • FM-200™ is a clean agent that is safe around people; therefore, FM-200™ fire suppression systems are safe to install in occupied spaces.
  • FM-200 is safe to use around equipment, electronics, and machinery since no residue is left after discharging.
  • Compared to other clean agents like 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid, FM-200™ is a slightly more cost-effective option.
  • Because of the small amount of FM-200™ required to suppress a fire, smaller or fewer cylinders are needed compared to other agents like 3M Novec 1230 fluid.
