FM-200® Supply

Wilmington, Del., June 1, 2011
Memo to Clean Agent Fire Equipment Distributors, Consultants, AHJs, Users and Customers
In a January 2011 letter we discussed the challenging supply situation currently facing the fluorochemical industry, our DuPont™ FE™ Fire Extinguishants, and specifically our FM-200® clean extinguishing agent. To date we have continued to honor the earlier allocation commitments made to our OEM customers and have worked diligently to support them with additional volume of FM-200® extinguishing agent in excess of those allocations to seek to meet their ongoing market demand. While the volume of FM-200® provided to the market in 2011 is comparable to historical levels, it continues to be insufficient to meet the current high global demand for our product.

DuPont continues to manufacture FM-200® at both manufacturing sites at production rates close to or even exceeding previous years, but the limited supply of raw material constrains our ability to exceed the current production rates from these facilities. We are closely coordinating delivery schedules with our OEM customers to provide the least possible disruption to their clients and markets. With this control on FM-200® deliveries, many of our OEM customers are facing difficult decisions regarding FM-200® shipments and extending lead times for customer deliveries.

In some markets these supply issues are being used to establish rumors of a DuPont withdrawal from the Fire Extinguishing business. Nothing could be further from the truth. DuPont remains committed to serving and supporting the Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing market with fast, safe, and effective waterless fire extinguishing agents as we have been doing for more than 50 years.
Despite the current supply constraints, the demand for FM-200® continues to grow, highlighting the market’s preference for the overall value of FM-200® over other fire suppression options. DuPont is committed to working to overcome our supply limitations to support this growing demand for the world’s most used clean agent fire extinguishant.

As we continue to work on expanding our supply to the market, keep in mind that the future outlook for our FE Extinguishing business continues to be excellent. The recently released HEEP report on HFC Emissions in Fire Protection documents a 27% decrease in GWP weighted emissions for 2009 and a 32% decrease since 2007, in spite of the steadily growing number of protected facilities and installations. This further validates the industry’s position that HFC fire systems are not significant contributors to global warming and greenhouse gas emissions.

Many of the regulatory uncertainties that have clouded the fire sector are satisfactorily clearing. The confusing regulatory landscape surrounding HFCs and global warming is coalescing and we see progress toward an acceptable HFC management program under the Montreal Protocol. The growing acceptance of HFC alternatives for mobile air conditioning and foam expansion agents may replace at least half of the global HFC usage, providing sufficient remaining production for vital, non emissive, applications, such as Fire Protection. DuPont is a market-driven science company, creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere. FM-200® and the DuPont™ FE™ Fire Extinguishing Agents remain a core part of that vision.

FM-200® Waterless Fire Suppression Systems

FM-200®, a trusted choice in waterless fire suppression, is now a member of the DuPont family of clean agent fire extinguishant systems.

DuPont™ FM-200® is accepted and respected worldwide, with a history of protecting some of the world's most critical and irreplaceable assets. In fact, FM-200® is in use in over one hundred thousand applications, in more than 70 nations.
Many fire suppression systems can cause major damage to – and even destroy – the very things they are supposed to protect. You're looking to avoid damage – not cause it. You're looking to reduce downtime – not lengthen it. You want a fire suppression system that deploys quickly and cleanly and won't leave behind oily residue, particulate, or water. FM-200® fire suppressant stops fires fast. When you consider the potentially devastating environmental effects of an uncontrolled fire, it's easy to see that an FM-200® system is an important part of an environmentally responsible fire suppression solution.

FM-200® systems reach extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, stopping ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they cause significant damage. That's the fastest fire protection available, period. When fire is extinguished this quickly, it means less damage, lower repair costs, and an extra margin of safety for people. It also means less downtime and disruption of business.

FM-200® fire suppressant can be safely used where people are present.

In applications where space is at a premium, FM-200® fire suppression systems are the superior choice. The FM-200® agent is stored in cylinders as a liquid and pressurized with nitrogen, saving huge amounts of storage space. In fact, for the same amount of protection, FM-200® systems take up to seven times less storage space than systems based on CO2 and inert gases.

You cannot afford to settle for minimum fire protection when lives and valuable assets are at stake. There's no substitute for genuine DuPont™ FM-200® waterless fire protection.

Fire Extinguisher FAQs

Q. What is the proper height to mount a fire extinguisher, as per NFPA 10 guidelines?

A. Extinguishers with a gross weight not exceeding 40 pounds should be installed so that the top of the extinguisher is not more than 5 feet above the floor.

Extinguishers with a gross weight greater than 40 pounds, except wheeled types, should be installed so that the top of the extinguisher is not more than 3 feet above the floor.

In no case can the clearance between the bottom of the extinguisher and the floor be less than 4 inches.

Q. How do you use a portable fire extinguisher and what is the well-known training acronym for proper extinguisher use?

A. Use a portable fire extinguisher by following the P.A.S.S. procedure:
Pull the handle pin on the top of the extinguisher.
Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire and stand approximately 8 to 10 feet from the fire.
Squeeze the extinguisher handle to discharge the extinguishing agent. (Release the handle and the discharge will stop.)
Sweep the nozzle/extinguisher side to side at the base of the fire. After the fire is out, watch/inspect the fire location carefully to ensure it does not re-ignite.
Q. What are the four classes of fires and their respective hazard materials?

A.
Class A: Ordinary combustibles. These can include wood, paper, fabrics, rubber and many plastics.
Class B: Flammable liquids and gases. These can include gasoline, paint, oils, grease, tar, lacquer and other solvents.
Class C: Energized electrical equipment. This can include wiring, motors, generators, panels, switches and appliances.
Class D: Combustible metals and combustible metal alloys.

Q. What does the UL rating for a fire extinguisher indicate?

A. Class A and B fire extinguishers have a numerical rating based on tests conducted by UL (Underwriter’s Laboratories). The UL rating is broken down into Class A and Class B:C ratings. These numerical ratings allow you to compare the relative extinguishing effectiveness of various fire extinguishers.

For example, an extinguisher that is rated 4A:20B:C indicates the following:
The A rating is a water equivalency rating. Each A is equivalent to 1-1/4 gallons of water. 4A=5 gal. of water.
The B:C rating is equivalent to the area (square footage) that, related to the degree of training and experience of the operator, the extinguisher can cover. 20 B:C=20 square feet of coverage.
C indicates it is suitable for use on electrically energized equipment.
When analyzing these ratings, note that there is not a numerical rating for Class C or Class D fires. Class C fires are essentially either a Class A or Class B fire involving energized electrical equipment where the fire extinguishing material must be nonconductive. The fire extinguisher for a Class C fire should be based on the amount of the Class A or Class B component. For extinguisher use on a Class D fire, the relative effectiveness is detailed on the extinguisher nameplate.

Q. How do I determine what size fire extinguisher I need?

A. Portable extinguishers are rated for the size of fire they can handle. This rating appears on the label. An example of such a rating could be, 2A:10B:C. The larger the number(s), the larger the fire the extinguisher can put out. One thing to keep in mind is that higher rated extinguisher models are often heavier—that becomes an important issue when it comes down to properly holding and operating an extinguisher. An extinguisher must be large enough to put out the fire. Most portable extinguishers discharge completely in as few as 8 to 10 seconds. Fire extinguishers are tested by independent laboratories and labeled for the type and size of fire they can extinguish. The applied extinguisher reference/labels can be used as a guide to determining the correct extinguisher for a specific application.

Selection of an extinguisher for a given application depends on the following items:
The nature of the combustible or flammables that present.
The potential severity, including the size, intensity and speed of travel of potential fire.
Effectiveness of the fire extinguisher on a given fire source.
Ease of use of a specific model extinguisher.
Personnel trained in reacting and operating an extinguisher.
The suitability of the extinguisher for a given environment, which can include existing ambient temperature conditions and other surrounding potential atmospheric conditions such as wind, draft and/or presence of vapors or fumes.
Anticipating adverse chemical reactions between the extinguishing agent and the resulting burning material(s).
The health and operational safety issues of extinguisher operators with type of extinguishing agent(s).
The maintenance requirements for certain model extinguishers.
The information below provides additional rating information to assist in determining the appropriate extinguisher for specific applications.

Class A Extinguishers will put out fires in ordinary combustibles, such as wood and paper. The numerical rating for this class of fire extinguisher refers to the amount of water the fire extinguisher holds and the amount of fire it will extinguish.

Class B Extinguishers should be used on fires involving flammable liquids, such as grease, gasoline, oil, etc. The numerical rating for this class of fire extinguisher states the approximate number of square feet of a flammable liquid fire that an average person can expect to extinguish.

Class C Extinguishers are suitable for use on electrically energized fires. This class of fire extinguishers does not have a numerical rating. The presence of the letter “C” indicates that the extinguishing agent is nonconductive.

Class D Extinguishers are designed for use on flammable metals and are often specific for the type of metal in question. There is no picture designator for Class D extinguishers. These extinguishers generally have no rating and are not given a multi-purpose rating for use on other types of fires.

HFC-227ea vs HFC-125

This is a common question among IT / mission critical facility stakeholders.

I'll try to boil it down to a few key points:-

HFC-227ea (commonly known as FM-200)
- Most commonly used agent for halon-replacement applications
- Readily available in most every geography around the world
- Some OEM's can provide in a delivery methodology allowing nearly direct halon drop-in replacement
- Safe for people, and the assets within the protected space

HFC-125 (commonly known as FE-25)
- Newly available on the market; not quite as easily available for re-fill purposes
- Previously had toxicological interpretation questions, so was generally not used in occupied spaces
- Recent (2000) adoption of certain methodologies to interpret tox. data allows this agent to be used more liberally, thus allowing more freedom for use in occupied spaces
- Generally requires ~15% less agent than FM-200, thus making it generally more economical for the same space

In terms of actual fire suppression performance, the two are virtually identical.

Hope this helps!

Halon 1301, 2402, 1211: Replacing Halon Gas

- What is Halon 1301?
- Are there other halons?
- What is the Montreal Protocol?
- What is the Kyoto Protocol?
- What are CFCs?
- Why replace Halon?
- When does it need replacing?
- What happens to the Halon?
- Who will be exempt?
- Is there a "Drop In" replacement?
- What is the nearest alternative?
- Should I look at other alternatives?
- What will it cost to replace?
Water mist installation

What is Halon 1301
Chemically - BTM (bromotrifluoromethane) 1301: An excellent fire extinguishing agent (gas) currently installed in thousands of locations throughout the world protecting sensitive electronic equipment, typically found in computer rooms, telecommunications centres, data processing environments, aviation and may other places.

Are there other Halons
Yes and some are used in Fire Protection. Where could you find others? - As refrigerant gases.

What is the Montreal Protocol
An agreement reached by signatory nations in Montreal Canada on the 16 September 1987 (amended twice since signing). As part of the United Nations Environmental Program, a goal has been set to initially control and further eliminate global emissions of ozone depleting chemical compounds.

Problem chemicals were defined into a list and a time set for their removal from production together with the agreement to ban certain products that could also introduce Ozone Depleting chemicals into the atmosphere. See www.worldbank.org/montrealprotocol.

The timescale set for the cessation of production of these chemicals was effectively the end of 1993 in the developed world and 2010 in developing countries.

What is the Kyoto Protocol
Following in the footsteps of the Montreal Protocol the Kyoto Protocol was agreed on the 10 December 1997 and committed the parties to specific reductions in the release of Global Warming Gases. The most significant for the fire protection industry being Carbon Dioxide and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).

What are CFC (Chlorofluorocarbon)
They are ozone depleting substances used in fire extinguishant systems, refrigeration and air conditioning equipment including chlorofluorocarbons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons, collectively referred to as CFCs. This group of chemicals has been demonstrated to be harmful to the environment, specifically the stratospheric ozone layer.

Why does Halon need replacing
As a CFC based gas, Halon 1301 and 1211 are ozone depleting agents. Their release to atmosphere during manufacture, decanting to application cylinders and use or misuse in service has contributed to the depletion of the ozone layer. They also have a long atmospheric life.

When does it need replacing
The new EC Regulation 2037/2000 came into force on 1 October 2000 and states:-

New halons cannot be used for refilling existing systems.

Recovered, recycled or reclaimed halon 1301 / 1211 can only be used in existing systems until 31st December 2002. After this date no refilling can take place.

Mandatory decommissioning of fire extinguishing systems with halons must be completed before 31st December 2003.

What will happen to the removed Halon 1301
The regulations will make it compulsory to safely dispose of any Halon recovered. This will include banking for organisations who are exempt and have "Critical Uses" which will continue.

Who will be exempt
Owners and users of halon with "Critical Uses" may be able to claim exemption if broadly speaking the application is within the aircraft industry, military / armed forces, petrochemical industry and some marine applications. Use that can claim to be connected with national security.

Is there a "Drop In" replacement
No, not directly but there are alternatives and one in particular is very similar in its installation and operation. It may also be possible to reuse some or all of your existing mechanical pipework installation.

What is the nearest alternative
The nearest alternative replacement extinguishing agent is FM200®

Should I look at other alternatives
Yes, you should evaluate all the available alternatives including whether you need a replacement at all.

What will it cost to replace
This will depend upon many factors - primarily the size of the installation but other factors will have a significant effect on the cost of replacement. Some of these you will already have the answer to - Can the installation take place in normal working hours, is the existing space occupied by the Halon equipment sufficient accommodate the new equipment, Finally - Does the supplier offer a cost effective service that produces value for money over the life of the system. Don't be taken in by cheaper quotes that have hidden cost of ownership clauses - yes even today there are companies still selling in this manner.
