Halon Fire Suppression
Halon is a very effective fire and explosion suppression agent. It does not conduct electricity, is non-volatile, non-corrosive, leaves no residue behind, and works in clear form. These features make Halon extremely valuable for certain applications.
Halon disposal requires special technician training and very specific disposal methods. Proper disposal requires technicians to send the Halon-containing equipment to facilities operating in accordance with NFPA 10 and NFPA 12 standards for recovery, recycling, and final disposal.
The EPA governs Halon collection and disposal to maximize recovery and recycling of the gas and reduce the chances of Halon emissions being released into the atmosphere. Halon is a chloro-fluorocarbon (CFC) and, as such, plays a role in the breakdown of the ozone layer. Halon is an incredibly effective fire suppression chemical, but use to its status as a CFC it is no longer being made. However, Halon can be sourced through fire suppression system chemical recycling and brought up to new compliance standards.
FM200 Fire Suppression
FM200 is considered a Clean Agent fire suppression system and is commonly found in facility-wide sprinkler systems worldwide. It is also used in traditional cylinders as an alternative to Halon. The chemical composition of FM200 means it does not leave behind an oily residue, particulates, or water, which is why it remains such a popular fire suppression chemical.
FM200 disposal is not as strictly governed as Halon recycling and disposal since FM200 is not an ozone-depleting chemical, but removal by trained technicians is still recommended. Full cylinders are under extreme pressure and require removal to a facility that can safely process them and remove the chemical. Empty cylinders should be checked to make sure they really are empty and the shells recycled.
