DuPont, one of the leading market-driven science companies, has concluded seminars across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to present information on the different Halon replacement technologies, the developments in the clean agent industry since the Halon ban, and the use of FM-200® as a Halon replacement and clean agent choice.
FM-200® systems reach extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, and assure business continuity and safety of assets. The FM-200® gas is safe for personnel and has been used in over 300,000 applications in more than 70 nations. It is capable of stopping ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they cause significant damage and is highly suitable for enclosed spaces. Various engineers, consultants, OEM and OEM distributors and professionals involved in the fire protection industry were invited to learn more about the suppressant’s superior features during DuPont seminars held from November 8 to November 11, 2009 in Khobar, Jeddah and Riyadh.
