inControl Systems FM-200

Our clean agent fire extinguishing system utilizes FM-200 as the extinguishing medium. FM-200 is a colorless, non-toxic gas perfectly suited to protect high value assets in areas that may be normally occupied, in locations where clean-up of other agents is problematic, when storage space for a fire suppression agent is restricted, or when an electrically non-conductive agent is required. Each system consists of the following components and their associated accessories:

  1. FM-200 Storage Components – Storage components consist of the cylinder assembly(s), which contains the FM-200 chemical agent, and the cylinder bracket(s), which holds the cylinder assembly securely in place.
  2. FM-200 Distribution Components – Distribution components consist of the discharge nozzles used to introduce the FM-200 agent into a protected hazard along with the associated piping system used to connect the nozzles to the cylinder assembly.
  3. Trim Components – Trim components complete the installation of the FM-200 system and consist of the electric valve actuator and the manual valve actuator.
  4. Slave Arrangement Components – Slave arrangement components consist of the pneumatic valve actuator(s), actuation check valve, vent check, actuation hose, and fittings required for a multiple cylinder (slave) arrangement.
  5. Supplemental Components – Supplemental components include the discharge pressure switch and manifold check valve. They supplement the core equipment or complete a specific multicylinder configuration.
  6.  Control Panel – This device monitors the condition of the electric actuator, detectors, warning devices, cylinder pressure, and any manual release and abort stations. All electric or electronic devices must connect to the control panel in order to function.
  7. Early Warning Detection and Alarm Devices – Early warning detection devices coupled with manual release and abort stations maximize system efficiency while audible and visual alarm devices alert staff of alarm conditions.

A Brief overview of SV, MV and LV systems

SV, MV and LV series FM-200 cylinders

The SV (small volume), MV (medium volume) and LV (large volume) series' of FM-200 fire suppression systems refer to the volume contained, and some variations in the components included, valve widths and the number of cylinders involved. Choosing the right series for the area you need to protect is important for effective fire suppression.

The SV series supports 3 cylinders with sizes ranging from 40-130lb, with a 1 1/4 inch discharge outlet and a 3/8 inch pilot actuation part. Like the MV series, the SV series has a rupture disc that bursts between 850 psi (58.6 bar) and 1000 psi (68.9 bar). See the appropriate document for more details.

The MV series supports 2 large cylinders with a normal cylinder size of 250-450lb, with a 2inch discharge outlet and a 1/4 inch pilot actuation part. The MV series' rupture disc bursts at 850psi (58.6 bar) and 1000psi (68.9 bar), just like the SV series. See the appropriate document for more details.

The LV series supports 3 large cylinders weighing 600-1000lb, each with a 3inch discharge outlet and a 1/4 inch pilot actuation part. The LV series' rupture disc is mounted right on the cylinder, not the valve.  See the appropriate document for more details.
