The better extinguishing performance due to high pressure technology
The faster extinguishing effect of Cerberus® FM200 as compared with conventional low pressure FM200 systems is achieved solely by means of the high-pressure technology which the Siemens Cerberus Division developed for Halon 1301.
The droplet size.my/15. it is possible to work out the life of an FM200 droplet expressed as the distance travelled in metres as a function of the operating pressure at the nozzle (see Table 1). with conventional low-pressure systems. less energy is transported for droplet vaporization in the jet.SRI . is impossible. 1 shows. decreases with increasing operating pressure at the nozzle. As fig. Both high-pressure criteria together are vital for the rapid and reliable extinguishing of a fire with FM200 : Rapid release of FM200 in the extinguishing sector.FM200™ Fire Suppression System Page 2 of 11 Fig. although more energy is required for rapid vaporization of the larger FM200 droplets (see fig. Total vaporization aIready during flooding. Operating pressure at the nozzle (bar) Distance travelled by droplet (m)* <1. Energy is required for vaporization and must be supplied to the droplets. clearly show that only at a minimum operating pressure of 10 bar is an FM200 droplet completely vaporized before it can collide with any object in the extinguishing sector. arising from atomization of FM200. 1 : advantage of high pressure nozzle By high-pressure technology. 1). For this reason. On account of the distinctly higher impetus of the jet at a higher operating pressure at the nozzle. http://www. with a high-pressure system.The results of numerous extinguishing tests in our laboratories have shown that as a rule. With simple thermodynamic calculations.com. The results presented in Table 1.5 10 6 4 Table 1 : Distance travelled by FM200 high and low pressure droplets The average size droplet is calculated on the basis of the resulting spectrum Minimum operating pressure of 10 bar at the nozzle FM200 is transported in liquid form to the nozzles in the extinguishing sector where FM200 is atomized.5 >4-5 >5. the ambient air is drawn into the FM200 droplets / nitrogen jet which provides the necessary energy for vaporization.html 7/30/2008 . Only when all three of these criteria are completely fulfilled is the FM200 gas available immediately after flooding in each part of the extinguishing sector in the required extinguishing concentration to extinguish a fire reliably in the shortest possible time. a delay until all the FM200 is totally vaporized under unfavourable thermodynamic conditions upon completion of the flooding process. Perfect homogenization before flooding is completed. a fire can be extinguished in less than 30 seconds after the system has been actuated.sri. we understand a minimum operating pressure at the nozzle of 10 bar as well as an FM200 storage pressure of 42 bar.
html 7/30/2008 .FM200™ Fire Suppression System Page 3 of 11 FM200 storage pressure of 42 bar The Cerberus® FM200 high-pressure technology guarantees that for each kilogram of stored FM200. 2) by comparison with conventional systems and so optimizes the ratio of hardware required to each stored kilogram of FM200. the maximum filling factors can be realized (see fig.my/15. therefore the hydrogen fluoride (HF) normally generated by halocarbon agents in the presence of a fire is negligible for high pressure system. the high pressure system able to achieve shorter extinguishing time compare to low pressure system.15 < 10 s < 30 s Because of the rapid vaporization.45 to 1. is crucial.sri. http://www. more nitrogen propelIant is available with which even with larger and more complex applications. While nitrogen in the cylinder head via the FM200 liquid surface serves to fill the pipe network with liquid FM200 and to initiate atomization at the nozzle.
