Clean Agent & Special Hazard Suppression
Hiller is committed to doing our part to protect the environment. By using clean agent suppression systems, we can better protect lives and property while reducing our carbon footprint. These suppression systems support a cleaner environment by reducing water waste and eliminating the use of ozone depleting agents.
Inert fire suppression systems use argon and nitrogen gases and their mixtures to reduce oxygen levels in a protected space. Once discharged, they are evenly and quickly distributed throughout the area until the oxygen levels no longer support combustion. Inert systems discharge the agent into the space at a steady flow rate, which eliminates turbulence but still meets the 60-second requirement to distribute. Because nitrogen and argon occur naturally in the atmosphere, there is zero negative environmental impact.
The Benefits of Pro Inert Fire Suppression
Pro Inert fire suppression is the latest in fire suppression technology, offering enhanced protection that is more effective, efficient, and safe than traditional methods. Inert fire suppression systems have many advantages, including increased safety, lower installation costs, and improved environmental protection.

What is Pro Inert Fire Suppression?
Pro-Inert fire suppression is a fire suppression system that uses inert gas instead of water or other extinguishing agents. It works by suppressing a fire by decreasing the oxygen levels in the affected area, preventing the fire from spreading and extinguishing it. The inert gas used in pro-inert fire suppression systems is typically nitrogen or a combination of nitrogen and argon.
Advantages of Pro Inert Fire Suppression
Pro-Inert fire suppression systems offer several advantages over traditional methods. First, they are significantly safer than using water or other extinguishing agents. This is due to the fact that water can spread the fire and cause further damage to the building, while inert gas does not.
In addition, inert gas fire suppression systems are typically much more cost-effective than traditional methods. This is because they require less installation and maintenance, and they can be used in areas with difficult conditions such as high humidity. As a result, they are becoming increasingly popular in commercial and industrial buildings.
Finally, pro-inert fire suppression systems have a major environmental benefit as well. Since they do not use water, they do not cause water run-off and do not put additional strain on water resources. Additionally, they are non-toxic and non-corrosive, meaning they do not damage the environment around them.

FM-200 is a fast-acting clean agent comprised of heptafluoropropane, which is a compound of carbon, fluorine and hydrogen. This agent is a part of a total flood system and reaches extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, which translates to less damage, reduction of safety risk to occupants, and less downtime.
What is FM-200 Clean Agent: An Overview and its Advantages
FM-200 is a clean fire suppression agent that is becoming increasingly popular in a range of industries and applications. This colorless and odorless gas is a preferred choice for many facilities because of its ability to quickly suppress fires without leaving residue or damaging critical equipment. In this blog, we’ll provide an overview of FM-200 clean agent, its advantages, and why it’s becoming a popular choice for fire protection.
FM-200, also known as HFC-227ea, is a halocarbon-based fire suppression agent that works by interrupting the fire triangle, the three elements required for fire to exist: fuel, oxygen, and heat. FM-200 works by rapidly removing the heat component, effectively suppressing the fire. This makes FM-200 ideal for use in applications where critical equipment and data must be protected, as it leaves no residue that could damage the equipment.
FM-200 is also considered to be a “clean” fire suppression agent because it does not harm the ozone layer and has low toxicity levels. This makes FM-200 an environmentally friendly option, compared to other fire suppression agents that contain harmful chemicals.
One of the primary advantages of FM-200 is its speed of fire suppression. FM-200 is designed to suppress fires quickly, reducing the risk of fire damage and minimizing the impact of a fire on critical equipment and operations. This is especially important in applications where time is of the essence, such as data centers, telecommunications facilities, and other applications where equipment and data must be protected.
Another advantage of FM-200 is its compatibility with a wide range of equipment and applications. FM-200 can be used in applications where other fire suppression agents are not appropriate, such as in applications where water or foam could cause damage. FM-200 can also be used in applications where space is limited, as it requires less storage space than other fire suppression agents.
FM-200 is also easy to install and maintain. The FM-200 fire suppression system consists of a network of nozzles that are strategically placed to provide coverage in the event of a fire. The system is designed to be easy to install, minimizing the disruption to operations, and is also easy to maintain, with regular maintenance checks and inspections recommended to ensure the system is working properly.
In addition to its fire suppression capabilities, FM-200 also has a number of other benefits, including its low environmental impact, low toxicity levels, and safe evacuation times. FM-200 is a preferred choice in applications where environmental impact is a concern, such as in data centers and telecommunications facilities. The low toxicity levels of FM-200 make it a safe choice for use in areas where people may be present, and the safe evacuation times make it an ideal choice for use in buildings where people may need to evacuate quickly in the event of a fire.
FM-200 is a clean fire suppression agent that is becoming increasingly popular for its fast fire suppression capabilities, compatibility with a wide range of equipment and applications, and its low environmental impact and toxicity levels. Whether you’re looking to protect critical equipment, data, or people, FM-200 is a safe and effective choice for fire protection. If you’re considering fire suppression for your facility, be sure to consider the advantages of FM-200 and speak with a fire protection expert at Hiller to determine if it’s the right choice for your needs.
