All these years Halon 1301 has
been recognized as one of the most effective clean fire
extinguishing agents. It was installed in computer rooms and
control rooms where it caused no residual damage to expensive
equipment. It was also easily installed by professionally
trained engineers. But Halon 1301 was identified as one of the
worst offendors to the Ozone layer.
The new clean and ozone friendly fire suppression agent FS 49
C2 (halogl IIB) offers an outstanding combination of
firefighting efficiency, low cost, high stability,
non-corrosive, non-conductive agent and ease of use.
With the phaseout of Halon 1301, alternative have been tested
and evaluated for Halon 1301 on the market. No other gas
offers the same safety and economy advantages as FS 49 C2 (halogl
FS 49 C2 (halogl
- A clean extinguishing agent
– residue free.
- Compatible with existing Halon systems.
- May be used in existing Halon systems.
- Favourable weight/volume ratio.
- No hazard to humans at working concentrations.
- Through tested-favourable user response.
FS 49 C2 was developed as a
replacement agent for Halon 1301 offering the same optimum
characteristics yet with minimum impact on the environment.
The result was a gas blend, in which the main components
include the most used replacement gases for cooling system
with an ODP factor of zero. FS 49 C2 has nearly the same
physical characteristics as Halon 1301 and is therefore the
best choice for replacement of Halon 1301 in fixed
“DROP IN” GAS
Replacing with FS 49 C2 will
save your major costs in upgrading your existing system. Minor
technical adjustments as well as slight increase in gas
storage capacity are all that are required.
FS 49 C2 has many of the same properties as Halon 1301, and
comparable extinguishing characteristics.
Halon systems are installed to
protect computer systems, control rooms, engine rooms and area
where high fire risks is limited. When converting to FS 49 C2,
a complete system analysis should be performed. This
extinguishing gas must fill the room quickly and efficiently
without reaching levels that endanger personnel. Assessment of
these factors should be left to the trained engineers.
On final completion of the
work, detailed “as-installed” drawings are issued by
GIELLE to the customer, along with the appropriate
commissioning and conformity certification required by LPS
“DROP IN” GAS
FS 49 C2 is the extinguishing
agent of choice in new systems as it is clean, in use causes
no damage to building interiors or equipment and very
quick-acting, which keeps fire damage to a minimum. FS 49 C2
has an ideal weight/volume ratio. Like Halon 1301, FS 49 C2 is
condensed in the cylinder and stored in liquid form. The
required gas volume is 40% greater than Halon 1301. No other
substitute gas on the market offers these ideal properties. FS
49 C2 presents no hazard to humans at the levels required for
extinguishing the fires.
