THERE ARE THREE TYPES OF FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS FOR DATA/IT CENTERS

Water cannot be used on electronics equipment’s. Since in data center and server rooms, we use computers, hard drives, network devices and other sensitive equipment, you need something different than ordinary fire sprinklers to protect you’rehighly cost equipment’s, important data and devices.

Earlier, Halon was the only choice for non-water fire suppression, but once it became known that deploying Halon depletes the ozone, it was phased out from use. Halon fire suppression systems are allowed to stay in use, however with new installation must utilize an alternative extinguishing agent.

The best option is to install a clean agent fire suppression system. The most significant benefit of clean agents is that they leave no residue behind, allowing them to suppress flames without irreparably damaging your IT equipment. This is a gaseous system that works either by depriving flames of oxygen or heat.

The three types of clean agents most suitable for use in data centers include the following:

FM200 CLEAN AGENT SYSTEM

data_1

In response to the impending production phase out of Halon fire extinguishants, FM-200 ( Heptafluoropropane ) is a replacement for Halon 1301 in applications requiring a clean environmentally acceptable fire extinguishing agent, suitable for use in manned areas.

It is a colourless gas at standard conditions, exhibiting a boiling point of -16.4 Degree Centigrade. Through the use of properly designed equipment, FM-200 will mix well in a protected enclosure to provide a homogenous mixture in air. For fire suppression applications, FM-200 is super pressurized to achieve rapid discharge into the protected environment.

Technical SpecificationFM-200
Chemical FormulaC3F7H
Ozone Depletion Potential0
Molecular Weight170.03
Boiling Point-16.4 Degree Cent
Critical Temperature102 Degree Cent
Extinguishing Concentration ,Heptane Cup5.8 %
Burner ( %by Volume ) 
Vapour Pressure at 21 Degree C68.8 psia

FM-200 works by physical action, the molecules absorb heat so that the temperature of the flame falls to a point below which it cannot propagate, and the fire is extinguished. The oxygen depleting effect is minimal as only small quantities of the gas are used.

CO2 FLOODING

data-it

Carbon dioxide (CO2) gas has been used as an extinguishing agent in fixed installations since the beginning of the twentieth century. NFPA-12 (National Fire Protection Association) Rules and BIS 6382 codes for design of such system are used as standards for CO2 extinguishing systems. These fire extinguishing installations are usually provided on premises where water and foam cannot be used. CO2 can be stored in high pressure seamless steel cylinders in liquid form with maximum filling ratio of 0.667 kg/liter of cylinder volume.

At atmospheric pressure and 21 Degree Cel. Temperature, 1kg of liquid CO2 vaporizes to occupy 560 liters. This means that in order to “flood/inject” CO2 gas into an environment, causing volumetric reduction of oxygen gas concentration, a large quantity of CO2 gas can be effectively stored in liquid form in relatively small cylinder volume.

HOW CO2 HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM WORKS

  • The high pressure system operates on efficient pneumatic principles.
  • Pneumatic pressure is used to open the valves and operate pressure switches, etc.
  • No wires, pulley, equalizers or falling weights are used in this system.
  • Operating parts are located internally, eliminating the need for bulky protective cages.

The typical system offers three independent means of actuation: (1) Automatic (2) Remote Manual (3) Direct Manual.

NOVEC 1230

Because its use concentration is much lower than its No Observable Adverse Effects Level (NOAEL), Novec 1230 fluid offers the widest margin of safety of any viable halon replacement available on the market today.

ONE FIRE PROTECTION FLUID. SO MANY REASONS TO USE IT.

New standard for halon replacement is Novec 1230 fluid, it offers a long-term, sustainable technology that has the greatest margin of safety, the lowest GWP for halocarbon alternatives, and zero ozone depletion potential.

WHAT IS NOVEC 1230 FLUID ?

Novec 1230 fluid is a fluoroketone — a proprietary 3M technology that offers a number of important advantages over conventional halon replacements.

HOW DOES IT WORK ?

Extinguishing via its cooling effect, Novec 1230 fluid works as a gas, yet it is a liquid at room temperature. Because it is not stored or shipped from the factory in pressurized cylinders, Novec 1230 fluid is easy to handle and charge. Novec 1230 fluid systems allow for more efficient use of space, requiring about the same number of cylinders as conventional halocarbon agents.

Note: Industry standards require egress from a protected enclosure prior to system discharge.
