FM-200 / HFC-227 Fire Suppression Agent For Sale

FM-200 is an innovative clean agent used in modern fire suppression systems that was originally created to substitute Halon gas. FM-200 is a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) compound, meaning it does have a large Global Warming Potential (GWP) – however, it also features zero Ozone depletion.

Unlike CO2 for fire suppression, FM-200 is composed of three compounds: Carbon, Fluorine, and Hydrogen. FM-200 extinguishes fires using a two-step process 1) interrupting the chemical chain reaction of combustion, followed by 2) removing heat from the combustion process, making it an extremely effective suppression agent.

FM-200 is safe for use in areas that support human occupancy, as well as areas that house sensitive electronics.

Purchase Procedure

Installing a modern and environmentally friendly clean agent and disposing of dated Halons and HFCs is easy when working with Control Fire Systems. We determine the price that you will be paid for the sale of your Halon gas or HFCs. In order for us to determine that price, we need to collect two pieces of information from you:

  1. How many cylinders are you selling to us?
  2. How many kgs of the suppression agent are in the cylinders?

Using this information, we generate a purchase value for your products based on the current commodity price of your suppression agents. After all of these steps have been completed and agreed upon, we will send you a purchase order.

Control Fire Systems will also provide you with an explanation of the Bill of Lading, all of the required MSDS sheets, and the dangerous goods placards that your shipping vehicle will require.

After receiving the tanks at our facility, we will provide you with a list of detailed weights within 72 hours (total weight of tank - tare weight & nitrogen loss = agent weight received). You will then need to invoice Control Fire Systems in order for us to pay you for the suppression agents.

Sell Procedure

Control Fire Systems is here to sell our suppression products to you, whether you're located in the USA or Canada. We provide two different options for FM-200 tank sizes, a 1-ton tank, or a ½ ton tank.
