FM 200® extinguishing agent is a clean gas widely accepted as substitute to Halon. FM 200 ®, or heptafluoropropane (CF3CHFCF3 ], is suitable for the protection of most hazards where Halon 1301 had to be applied In the past. Because FM 200® is not electrical conductive, [but it is odourless and colourless) it is effective in the protection of electrical hazards, such as computer rooms.
FE-13™ is a high-pressure clean extinguishing agent manufactured by DuPont. Electrically nonconductive. Suitable for the protection of computer rooms, archives and electrical equipment. Specially suitable for storage areas requiring low temperatures. Proven efficacy in enclosures with ceilings as high as 7.5 metres height.
NOVEC 1230 extinguishing agent is a clean gas widely accepted as substitute to Halon. NOVEC 1230, or dodecafluoro-2-methyl pentan-3-one(CF3CF2C(O)CF(CF3), is suitable for the protection of most hazards where Halon 1301 had to be applied in the past. Because NOVEC 1230 is not electrical conductive, (but it is odourlessandcolourless), it is effective in the protection of electrical hazards, such as computer rooms.
Further more, it is suitable for class A fires (fires including solid materials) as well as for class B fires (flammable liquids).
HFC-125 is physically similar to Halon 1301, thus it is an excellent and efficient alternative with the advantage that it does not deplete the ozone layer. It is suitable for use as extinguishing agent in total flooding systems in occupied areas for the protection of property such as: computers, archives, electrical equipment and telecommunication equipment, among others.
Studies carried out in accordance with PBPK model (physiologically based pharmacokinetic model), included in NFPA 2001, have shown that persons exposed to HFC-125 for a Maximum period of 5 minutes and concentrations up to 11,5% v/v, do not produce an HFC-125 level in the blood associated with cardiac sensitisation. Due to its low boiling point it is also suitable for use with low temperatures.
