HFC-227ea (Heptafluropropane), sold under The Chemours Company's trademark FM-200™, is a widely accepted replacement for Halon 1301. Since the production of CFC’s and bromine containing compounds has ceased, HFC-227ea has been introduced as an environmentally acceptable alternative. HFC-227ea leaves no residue on valuable equipment after discharge and can be used to protect a wide range of applications. It contains no bromine or chlorine and does not contribute to the destruction of the stratospheric ozone.
In partnership with Chemours, A-Gas offers reclaimed FM-200, sold as FM-200R™ (R for Reclaimed). FM-200R has the same extinguishing concentrations as FM-200, also with FM approval.
With FM-200R, A-Gas and Chemours are helping those with legacy FM-200 systems expand and maintain their systems by providing them with access to this essential product. In offering reclaimed FM-200, A-Gas and Chemours are enabling the industry to utilize a reprocessed and reclaimed, circular option for their first fill needs, supporting enterprise sustainability goals. By utilizing existing products, A-Gas is incentivizing the recovery and safe capture of fire suppressants. This helps to eliminate any release of the chemical to the atmosphere and the need to produce new agents.
