Umm Al-Quwain Secondary Technical School FM-200 Fire extinguishing systems: 1. FM-200 system (1) for M.V. Switchgear room: Room Length = 26 m Room width = 6.5 m Room area = 169 m Total Room volume = 169 x 5.25 = 887.25 m For using FM-200 with density of 0.6 kg/m based on 7 % concentration, taking 10% as a safety factor Total Amount of agent for the room = 887.25 x 0.6 x 1.1 = 585.6 kg For discharging at maximum time of 10 seconds: Total Agent flow rate = 585.6 / 10 = 58.56 kg/sec No of cylinders: Three cylinders, filled with 200 kg agent each. For DC Battery Room: Room Length = 4 m Room width = 2.5 m Room area = 10 m Room volume = 10 x 5.25 = 52.5 m Amount of agent for DC Battery Room = 52.5 x 0.6 x 1.1 = 34.65 kg For discharging at maximum time of 10 seconds: Agent flow rate for DC Battery room = 34.65 / 10 = 3.46556 kg/sec No of nozzles: one nozzle with 25mm diameter. For M.V. Switchgear room: Room Length = 26 m Room width = 6.5 m Room area = 159 m Room volume = 159 x 5.25 = 834.75 m Amount of agent for M.V Switchgear Room = 834.75 x 0.6 x 1.1 = 551 kg For discharging at maximum time of 10 seconds: Agent flow rate for the room = 551 / 10 = 55.1 kg/sec
