SAFETY SUMMARY
In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems use pressurized equipment; therefore, personnel responsible for fire suppression systems must be aware of the dangers associated with the improper handling, installation or maintenance of this equipment. Fire suppression system service personnel must be thoroughly trained in the proper handling, installation and service of In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression System equipment and follow the instructions used in this manual and in the Safety Bulletin and on the cylinder nameplate. Fenwal has provided warnings and cautions at appropriate locations throughout the text of this manual. These warnings and cautions are to be adhered to at all times. Failure to do so may result in serious injury and/or death to personnel and/or property damage. In addition, Material Safety Data Sheets for FM-200 and nitrogen are provided on the manufacturers website. Personnel must also be familiar with the information contained on these data sheets. DEFINITIONS Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death, serious bodily injury and/or property damage. Indicates a potentiality hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in property or equipment damage. SAFETY BULLETIN, MAY 1, 1993 SUBJECT: SAFE CYLINDER HANDLING PROCEDURES FOR PRESSURIZED CYLINDERS Pressurized (charged) cylinders are extremely hazardous and if not handled properly are capable of violent discharge. This will result in serious bodily injury, death and property damage. BEFORE handling Fenwal system products, all personnel must be thoroughly trained in the safe handling of the containers as well as in the proper procedures for installation, removal, filling, and connection of other critical devices, such as flexible hoses, control heads, and safety caps. READ, UNDERSTAND and ALWAYS FOLLOW the operation and maintenance manuals, owners manuals, service manuals, and other information that is provided with the individual systems. THESE INSTRUCTIONS MUST BE FOLLOWED IN THE EXACT SEQUENCE AS WRITTEN TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY, DEATH OR PROPERTY DAMAGE. SAFETY CAP
1. 2. 3. Each FM-200 cylinder is factory equipped with a safety cap installed on the valve outlet. This device is a safety feature, and will provide controlled safe discharge when installed if the cylinder is actuated accidentally. The safety cap must be installed in the valve outlet AT ALL TIMES except when the cylinders are connected into the system tubing or being filled. The safety cap is intentionally chained to the cylinder valve to prevent loss while in service and must not be removed from its chain.

PROTECTION CAP A protection cap is factory installed on the actuation port and securely chained to the valve to prevent loss. The cap is attached to the actuation port to prevent tampering or depression of the actuating pin. No attachments (Manual/Pneumatic Control Head) are to be connected to the actuation port during shipment, storage or handling.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems INSTALLATION THIS SEQUENCE FOR CYLINDER INSTALLATION MUST BE FOLLOWED AT ALL TIMES:
1. 2. 3. Install cylinder into bracketing. Remove safety cap and connect all cylinder valves into system tubing. Remove protection cap and attach control heads, pressure control heads, pilot loops, etc. as required.

Control heads must be in the set position before attaching to the cylinder valve actuation port, in order to prevent accidental discharge. REMOVAL FROM SERVICE
1. 2. 3. Remove all Manual/Pneumatic Control Heads, and actuation loops from cylinder valve, and attach protection cap to actuation port. Disconnect cylinders from system tubing at the valve outlet. Immediately install safety cap on valve outlet.

Do not disconnect the cylinder from system tubing if the safety cap is missing. Obtain a new safety cap from Fenwal.
4. Remove cylinder from bracketing.

Failure to follow these instructions, and improper use or handling, may cause serious bodily injury, death, and property damage. For additional information on safe handling of compressed gas cylinders, see CGA Pamphlet PI titled Safe Handling of Compressed Gases in Containers. CGA pamphlets may be purchased from The Compressed Gas Association, Crystal Square Two, 1725 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA 22202.

CHAPTER 1 GENERAL INFORMATION


1-1 INTRODUCTION The Fenwal In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression System has been designed and engineered specifically for protecting small, high value equipment where the protection needs to be localized and/ or added supplemental protection. Typical applications include: Electrical Cabinets Industrial/Switch-Gear Electrical Cabinets CNC machines High-Value Medical Equipment High-Value Industrial Machinery Individual High-Value Assets at Libraries, Museums or Art Galleries Flammable Liquid Storage Cabinets or Closets

Fenwal Protection Systems In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression System (herein after referred to as the In-Cabinet Suppression System) is designed for total-flooding in accordance with NFPA 2001, Standard on Clean Agent Extinguishing Systems. Agency approval is pending. FM-200 systems are suitable for the following classes of fire: Class A Surface Type Fires: Wood or other cellulose-type material Class B: Flammable liquids (see Table 3-1 in Chapter 3) Class C: Energized electrical equipment

For hazards beyond the scope described above, the designer must consult Fenwal and NFPA 2001 on the suitability of FM-200 for the protection, necessary design concentration and personnel exposure effects from that concentration.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 1-2.1 Suppression System The suppression system consists of three main components: the Cylinder and Valve Assembly, the Quick-Release Bracket and the Agent Distribution Assembly (ADA). The Cylinder and Valve Assembly comes pre-assembled with a specified fill of FM-200 (eight [8] different fills are available). The Cylinder and Valve assembly can be mounted in either a horizontal or vertical position. The ADA is a type of nozzle that effectively regulates the flow of agent in the protected enclosure. Upon activation of the system, the agent is discharged from the cylinder, through the distribution tubing network and to the ADA. Detailed descriptions of each of the components associated with the In-Cabinet Suppression System can be found in Chapter 2 of this manual. 1-2.1.1 EXTINGUISHING AGENT (FM-200) FM-200 (1,1,1,2,3,3,3heptafluoropropane) is a compound of carbon, fluorine and hydrogen (CF3CHFCF3). It is colorless, odorless and electrically nonconductive. It suppresses fire by a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms without affecting the available oxygen. This enables personnel to see and breathe, and allows them to leave the fire area safely. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program rules have determined that FM-200 has acceptable toxicity in occupied spaces when used as specified. A detailed description of the agent (FM-200) can be found in Chapter 2 of this manual. 1-2.2 CXV Controller The CXV Controller pneumatically actuates the Cylinder and Valve Assembly to discharge agent through the tubing network and ADA. A single CXV Controller provides several modes of actuation for the In-Cabinet Suppression System. Cable Pull Actuation (Remote) Local Manual Actuation Electrical Actuation (via Fenwal 2320 Control Panel)

The CXV Controller can actuate up to 20 Cylinder and Valve Assemblies. A detailed description of the CXV Controller can be found in Chapter 2 of this manual. 1-2.3 Fenwal 2320 Control Panel (Optional) The Fenwal 2320 Control Panel is designed for both alarm and suppression actuation in the In-Cabinet Suppression System. The 2320 Control Panel provides cross-zoned detection, manual releasing and automatic FM-200 release output. A detailed description of the Fenwal 2320 Control Panel can be found in Chapter 2 of this manual. Note: Fenwal Protection Systems offers additional UL Listed panels for use with the In-Cabinet Suppression System. Contact Fenwal Protection Systems for more information.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 2-3 COMPONENT DESCRIPTIONS The following paragraphs provide detailed descriptions of each component in the In-Cabinet Suppression System. 2-3.1 Cylinder and Valve Assemblies FM-200 is stored in steel cylinders as a liquid super-pressurized with nitrogen to 360 PSIG at 70F (24.8 bar gauge at 21C). The Cylinder and Valve Assembly is equipped with a pressure gauge and a safety burst disc in compliance with DOT requirements. In addition, each Cylinder and Valve Assembly is provided with a brass Safety Cap (06-236415-004) and a plastic Protection Cap (06-236415-003), which are safety features to prevent uncontrolled, discharges, in the event of an accidental discharge. The brass Safety Cap must be installed on the discharge outlet whenever a charged Cylinder and Valve Assembly is not connected to the distribution tubing. Failure to install the brass Safety Cap could result in violent movement of the container in the event of inadvertent actuation. Failure to follow these instructions could cause personal injury and/or damage to property.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 2-3.1.3 FM-200 (CYLINDER AGENT) FM-200 (1,1,1,2,3,3,3heptafluoropropane) is a compound of carbon, fluorine and hydrogen (CF3CHFCF3). It is colorless, odorless and electrically nonconductive. It suppresses fire by a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms without affecting the available oxygen. This enables personnel to see and breathe, and allows them to leave the fire area safely. Note: See Tables 2-9 and 2-10 for additional agent information.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program rules have determined that FM-200 has acceptable toxicity in occupied spaces when used as specified. 2-3.1.3.1 Operating Temperature Range Limitations The operating temperature range for all components used in Fenwal In-Cabinet Suppression System is 32F to 130F (0C to 54C). If the container operating/ storage temperature is outside this range, an insufficient quantity of agent may be discharged from one or more of the discharge ADAs. 2-3.1.3.2 Toxicity Unnecessary exposure to clean agents is to be avoided in accordance with the requirements of NFPA-2001. Upon operation of a system pre-discharge alarm, if applicable, all personnel should immediately exit the protected space. In no case shall personnel remain in a room in which there is a fire. In most cases, the In-Cabinet Suppression Systems are generally used in unoccupied areas. In the event that the system is discharged into an occupiable space, FM-200 halocarbon clean agent has been evaluated for cardiac sensitization in accordance with test protocols approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA). The EPA SNAP Program classifies FM-200 as acceptable for use as a total flooding agent in occupied spaces with specific limitations. Refer to the SNAP program rules or NFPA 2001 for more information. FM-200 halocarbon clean agent has been judged acceptable by the U.S. EPA for use in occupied spaces when used in accordance with the guidance of NFPA 2001. In accordance with NFPA 2001, FM-200 halocarbon clean agent systems designed for use with agent vapor concentrations up to nine volume percent in airwithout any evacuation time restrictionsare permitted (see NFPA 2001, Sect. 1-6, Safety). Although FM-200 halocarbon clean agent has negligible toxicity in concentrations needed to suppress most fires, certain safety considerations must be observed when applying and handling the agent. For example, HFC-227ea is a liquefied compressed gas. Upon release to atmospheric pressure (e.g., from ADAs) the liquid flash evaporates at a low temperature (3F/-16C). Thus, ADAs must be located to avoid direct impingement on personnel. Although FM-200 is considered nontoxic to humans in concentrations necessary to extinguish most fires, certain safety considerations should be observed when applying and handling the agent. Discharging FM-200 may create a hazard to personnel from the undecomposed agent itself, and the decomposition products that result when the agent is exposed to fire or hot surfaces. Exposure to the agent is generally of less concern than is exposure to the decomposition products. Unnecessary exposure to the agent or the decomposition products should be avoided.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 2-3.1.3.3 Decomposition When FM-200 is exposed to temperatures over approximately 1300F (700C), products of decomposition (halogen acids) are formed. If FM-200 is discharged in 10 seconds or less, flames are rapidly extinguished and the amount of by-products is minimal. 2-3.1.3.4 Cleanliness FM-200 is clean and leaves no residue, thereby eliminating costly after-fire clean-up and keeping expensive downtime to a minimum. Most materials such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and other metals as well as plastics, rubber and electronic components are unaffected by exposure to FM-200. 2-3.1.3.5 Storage FM-200 is stored in steel containers at 360 PSIG at 70F (24.8 bar at 21C) as a liquid with nitrogen added to improve the discharge characteristics. The pressure of the stored FM-200 varies substantially with temperature changes, as illustrated in Figure 2-6. When discharged, the FM-200 liquid vaporizes at the ADA, and is uniformly distributed as it enters the fire area being protected.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 2-3.2.2 ELECTRIC ACTUATOR, P/N 83-100034-001 Where electric detection and/or actuation is provided, supervision shall be provided in accordance with NFPA 17. Alarms and indicators, along with a supervisory power source, shall be provided in accordance with NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm Code. Electrical wiring and equipment shall be provided in accordance with NFPA 70, National Electric Code. All installations are subject to the approval of the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Note: When actuating the CXV Controller with an Electrical Actuator, a UL Listed fire control panel with a proper back-up power supply is required.

An Electrical Actuator is factory installed into the CXV Controller, just under the actuation latch. The Electrical Actuator includes two mounting bolts, the bracket and a push plate which mounts onto the Electrical Actuator body (see Figure 2-11). The coil for the Electric Actuator is 24 Vdc; the current drain is 1.5 Amp @ 24 Vdc @ 70F (21C). See Paragraph 2-3.2.3 for detailed interconnection and current drain requirements.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 2-3.2.3 MICROSWITCH KIT, P/N 87-120039-001 The Microswitch Kit is a single pole, double-throw switch (see Figure 2-12 and Table 2-12). Included in the kit is the Microswitch, pigtail assembly and four mounting screws (two short and two long). The wire leads are 24 in. (610 mm) in length. Four Microswitch Kits can be mounted in the CXV Controller. There are two mounting locations to accommodate the four Microswitch kits (two stacked at each mounting location; high-mounted and deepmounted), with EMT ports for each mounting location. This allows for the use of two electrical junction boxes for separation of signal lines and AC lines. See Figure 2-13 for the Microswitch wiring diagram. The bottom Microswitch, located in the high-mounted position (factory installed), is to be wired in series with the Electric Actuator and control panel output. When the system is actuated by the power output of the control panel, the Electric Actuator activates the CXV Controller, which in turn rotates the cam/flag assembly and opens the Microswitch to disconnect the power to the Electric Actuator. Disconnecting the power ensures that it will not be continuously drawn from the control panel. By wiring the Microswitch in series with the Electric Actuator and the control panel, the current requirements to actuate the Electric Actuator re limited to 1.5 Amp for 40 milliseconds (typical @ 70F [21C]). This momentary actuation is considered to have zero power draw on the battery during battery power calculations (see Figure 4-13 for wiring details).

CHAPTER 3 SYSTEM DESIGN


3-1 INTRODUCTION This chapter is intended for system designers. It outlines the steps needed to design the system including the limitations imposed on the design by the system hardware. The In-Cabinet Suppression System design is based on the requirements of Fenwal Protection Systems, UL Listing standards and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 2001, current edition. In any case, all installations must meet the requirements of the local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). The following steps must be taken to design a Fenwal In-Cabinet Suppression System: 1. Perform a hazard analysis and survey of the protected area. 2. Determine the minimum use concentration required for the hazard. 3. Determine the volume of the protected area. 4 Calculate the quantity of FM-200 agent to provide required use concentration at minimum expected ambient temperature in protected area.

5. Determine the integrity of the hazard 6. Select the cylinder and ADA locations. 7. Design and locate tubing within limits. 8. Determine and locate detection, alarm and control system. 9. Determine other auxiliary requirements. 3-2 3-2.1 3-2.1.1 SUPPRESSION SYSTEM DESIGN General Design Procedure PERFORM HAZARD ANALYSIS At a minimum, record the following information for use in the design of the system: 1. Identify what is being protected and what class of fire is to be suppressed (e.g., A, B or C). 2. Operating temperature of the equipment environment. 3. Dimensional data of area to be flooded with FM-200 (needed to determine volume). 4. Identify locations for ADA, tubing, cylinder, CXV Controller, detection and 2320 Control Panel (if applicable). 5. Ensure equipment integrity to maintain agent concentrations. 6. Identify areas to locate detection and 2320 Control Panel in accordance with NFPA 72.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 3-2.1.2 MINIMUM USE CONCENTRATIONS For systems that protect Class A or Class C hazards, and incorporate a mechanism of automatic actuation, a design concentration of 6.25% can be used. FM-200 shall not be used on fires involving the following materials, unless they have been tested to the satisfaction of the AHJ: 1. Certain chemicals or mixtures of chemicals, such as cellulose nitrate and gunpowder, that are capable of rapid oxidation in the absence of air. 2. Reactive metals such as lithium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, titanium, zirconium, uranium and plutonium. 3. Metal hydrides. 4. Chemicals capable of undergoing autothermal decomposition, such as certain organic peroxides and hydrazine. 3-2.1.3 CALCULATE THE VOLUME OF THE HAZARD BEING PROTECTED When calculating the volume of hazard being protected, do not subtract for equipment that is removable. 3-2.1.4 CALCULATE THE MINIMUM QUANTITY OF AGENT (FM-200) Calculate the quantity of agent (FM-200) required to provide the proper design concentration at the minimum expected ambient temperature in the protected area (see Tables 3-1, 3-2 and 3-3). NFPA 2001 and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) provide specific guidelines for using FM-200. The minimum use concentration for total flooding applications is 6.25% w/v, unless a higher concentration is required for the specific hazard being protected. Note: IMPORTANTThe agent (FM-200) required must be based on the lowest expected ambient temperature in the protected hazard. Care must be taken that the calculated concentration for normally occupied spaces at the highest expected ambient temperature in the space does not exceed 10.5% w/v for a five minute exposure per NFPA 2001. The Minimum Design Quantity (MDQ) will be used as a reference when determining the final fill of the cylinder for your application. 3-2.1.5 DETERMINE INTEGRITY OF THE HAZARD The design guidelines set forth in this manual assume there are no uncloseable openings. If there are uncloseable openings, consult Fenwal Protection Systems for further assistance. 3-2.1.6 DETERMINE QUANTITY AND PART NUMBERS OF REQUIRED AGENT (FM-200) STORAGE CONTAINERS Each storage container must be connected to its own tubing and ADAs, with no manifolding of containers permitted. Divide up the required agent (FM-200) quantity among the storage containers. Different size containers can be intermixed to satisfy the hazard requirements. All containers protecting the same hazard shall be arranged to operate simultaneously. Containers must be located as near to the protected hazard as possible. Cylinder storage and temperature range is between 32F to 130F (0C to 54C).

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 3-2.1.9 DETERMINE TUBING LAYOUT The In-Cabinet Suppression System provides multiple tubing layouts to cover a wide variety of applications. The following limitations must be observed: 1. Maximum vertical elevation from valve outlet to ADA is 10 ft. (3 m). 2. A total maximum of four (4) ADAs can be used for a single Cylinder and Valve Assembly. For in-line tubing, the distance between each ADA should be 2 to 6 ft. (0.6 to 1.8 m). The spacing between each ADA must be consistent. For example, if the spacing between ADA #1 and ADA #2 is 4 ft. (1.2 m), then the spacing between ADA #2 and ADA #3 must be 4 ft. (1.2 m). 3. Maximum equivalent length of 40 ft. (12.2 m). Tees do not need to be accounted for. For in-line tubing only: If the system requires more than three (3) elbows, the equivalent lengths must be accounted for (see Table 3-4). For balanced tubing only: If the system requires more than 12 elbows, the equivalent lengths must be accounted for (see Table 3-4). Table 3-4. Equivalent Lengths
Tubing Diameter 3/8" 1/2" 5/8" Elbow, Equivalent Length 6 ft. (1.8 m) 8 ft. (2.4 m) 10 ft. (3.0 m)

4. For balanced networks, the distance between each leg from the bull-tee must be within 10% of each other.

The minimum concentration for Class B (Hydraulic Fluid) is 8.5% (refer to Table 3-1). 3. The volume of the protected area is 231 ft.3. V= 7 ft. x 5.5 ft. x 6 ft. 4. The enclosure has no uncloseable openings therefore it does not require any additional amount of agent for venting. 5. The weight of agent required for this enclosure at 8.5% concentration is 9.26 lb. W=(70 ft.3/2.2075 ft.3/lb.) x (8.7/(100-8.7)) 6. The elevation change from cylinder to ADA is 7 ft., which is less than the maximum 10 ft. elevation. Four elbows will be used in the system and the distance of the tubing from the cylinder outlet to the ADA is 24.5 ft. Distance of tubing = 10 ft. + 7 ft. + 7.5 ft. 7. Referring to Table 3-5 for 1 ADA configurations 10 lb. of agent is required in a 500 in.3 cylinder. Table 3-5 shows that for more than 24.5 ft. of tubing and 10 lb. of agent 5/ 8 tubing must be used. The maximum distance for the 5/8 tubing is 34.5 ft.). The enclosure requires four elbows which is one more than what is than the design limit of three. In order to use four elbows Table 3-4 must be used to add the equivalent length of a 5/8 elbow. It is found in Table 3-4 that a 10 ft. equivalent length is used for a 5/8 elbow. Combining the 24.5 ft. of required tubing and the equivalent length of the elbow it puts the system at the 34.5 ft. limit. Total length of tubing combined with equivalent length of elbow: = 24.5 ft. (length of tubing) + 10 ft. (equivalent length of 5/8 elbow) = 34.5 ft.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 4-2 4-2.1 INSTALLATION OF COMPONENTS Installation of In-Cabinet System Cylinder and Valve Assemblies and Quick-Release Brackets The In-Cabinet System cylinders should be located as close to the protected hazard area as possible. The assemblies shall be located in a readily accessible location to allow for manual actuation and ease of inspection, service and maintenance. The cylinders shall be located in an environment protected from the weather, and where the ambient temperature does not exceed 130F (54C) nor fall below 32F (0C). External heating or cooling may be required to maintain this temperature range. The cylinder must be mounted in such a way that no part of the assembly stands in water or liquid. The cylinder should be mounted at least 4 in. (101.6 mm) above the floor. Cylinders must be located and mounted where they will not be accidentally damaged or moved. If necessary install suitable protection. 1. Determine the Cylinder and Valve Assembly mounting locations and mark the mounting holes using the bracket as a template. Before drilling the mounting holes, be sure that the mounting surface will support the loads identified in Table 2-4. Drill the holes and mount the bracket with bolts or screws of suitable length and type. 2. Place each Cylinder and Valve Assembly on the mounting bracket. Tighten the T-Bolt strap and check the mounting for proper fit. Make any necessary final adjustments.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 4-2.2 Installation of Agent (FM-200) Distribution Tubing and Fittings and ADA Installation of agent (FM-200) distribution tubing can start at either the Cylinder and Valve Assembly or the ADA. Note: Per NFPA 2000 Edition, Section 1-6.2.1All system components shall be located to maintain no less than minimum clearances from energized electrical parts. The following references shall be considered as the minimum electrical clearance requirements for the installation of clean agent systems: (1) (2) (3) 4-2.2.1 ANSI C2, National Electrical Safety Code NFPA 70, National Electrical Code 29 CFR 1910, Subpart S

AGENT (FM-200) DISTRIBUTION TUBING, TYPE K HIGH-PRESSURE COPPER OR STAINLESS STEEL Refer to the system drawings for the location and layout of the agent distribution tubing. Examine the configuration to ensure the tubing and ADAs do not interfere with objects in the hazard area. Also, confirm that the discharge pattern from the ADAs will not be obstructed by objects in the hazard area. Should conflicts occur, make changes before proceeding with installation. Agent distribution tubing must be installed in accordance with the limitations detailed in Chapter 3. All agent distribution tubing lengths must be blown clear with dry air or nitrogen prior to commissioning and must be installed in accordance with good commercial practices. Do not use water or oxygen to blow out tubing lines. Using oxygen is especially dangerous since even a minute amount of oil may cause an explosion. Standard Tubing hangers or clamps shall be used for support, as required. Note: At this time, the Safety Cap should still be installed on the valve outlet, and the agent (FM-200) distribution tubing should not be connected to the Cylinder Valve Assembly.

4-2.2.2

INSTALLATION OF ADA After the agent (FM-200) distribution tubing has been blown free of debris, install the ADA in strict accordance with the system drawings. Orient the ADA as shown on system drawings.

4-2.2.3

INSTALLING NITROGEN ACTUATION TUBING 1. Remove the red Protection Cap from the Cylinder Valve. 2. Loosely install the Manual/Pneumatic Control Head. 3. Locate the G1/8 x 1/4 MJIC flare copper tubing adapters and G1/8 plug. Install into each Manual/Pneumatic Control Head, as shown in Figure 4-4. 4. For multiple cylinder installations, measure and install the 1/4 O.D. x 0.030 wall thickness copper tubing. A 2 in.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 4-2.3 4-2.3.1 Installation of CXV Controller MOUNTING THE CXV CONTROLLER AND ACTUATION TUBING 1. Decide which ports will be used for connections to the CXV Controller enclosure. It is easiest if these ports are knocked out before mounting the CXV Controller enclosure on the wall. Refer to Figure 4-8 and Table 4-1 for port designations. Note: The port knockouts are an integral part of the backbox. Therefore, ensure that only required ports are broken out. Planning ahead and opening only the ports necessary for the system will help in keeping the box sealed from dirt, grease, water and other contaminants.

Ensure that the knockout pieces of the mounting holes do not remain inside the CXV Controller (P/N 93-487100-001) enclosure. Failure to remove these could cause malfunction of the mechanism. 2. With the CXV Controller cover removed, lay the box on its back. Locate the four mounting holes in the back of the box. Position the box so that the mounting holes are not flat on the work surface and break out the knockouts. See Figure 4-8 for location of mounting holes.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 4-2.4 Installing Cable Manual Pull Station The Cable Manual Pull Station is equipped with a safety pin and seal wire which must be removed to permit installation of the control cable from the CXV Controller. Note: The Cable Manual Pull Station is optional if the CXV Controller (local manual release) is in a clearly visible, easily accessible, unobstructed location. If it is not, a Cable Manual Pull Station must be used for mechanical systems.

Install the Cable Manual Pull Station as outlined in steps 1 through 6 (see Figure 4-6). 1. Mount the Cable Manual Pull Station outside the protected area, in a means of egress, on a clear, unobstructed exit location no more than 48 in. from the floor (42 in. if the American Disabilities Act applies). Note: The cable can enter the handle from the side hole in the snap-out cover or from the rear of the handle. If the cable is to enter from the rear, perform alternate Steps 1-a and 1-b, otherwise, proceed to step 2.

a. Drill a hole in the wall opposite the position of the Cable Manual Pull Station handle plug (when mounted). b. Attach a 1/2-inch EMT adapter to the hole in the wall. 2. Attach a length of 1/16-inch steel cable to the Cable Manual Pull Station handle, as follows: a. Unscrew the cable nut from the Cable Manual Pull Station plug. b. Thread the cable through the cable nut hex-head end and return through the other hole. c. Cut the cable where it emerges from the second hole in the hex-head end of the cable nut.

d. Screw the cable nut into the Cable Manual Pull Station handle plug until tight. Insert the Cable Manual Pull Station handle plug in the hole in the Cable Manual Pull Station handle assembly. e. Line up the holes in the Cable Manual Pull Station handle and the Cable Manual Pull Station handle plug and insert the safety pin to hold the plug in place. Loosely wrap the seal wire around the release handle to lock.

3. Mount the back plate to the wall using bolts or No. 10 self-tapping wood screws of required length. 4. Attach the cover with nameplate to the back plate using the 2 screws provided. 5. The remainder of the 1/16-inch steel cable should be run through 1/2-inch EMT cable to the CXV Controller. Use 90 degree Corner Pulleys (P/N 844648) for all changes in direction. 6. If more than one Cable Manual Pull Station is required, use the Tee Pulley assembly (P/N 843791).

The Cable Manual Pull Station cable attaches to the latch of the CXV Controller. The Cable Manual Pull Station uses port 5 of the CXV Controller. Note: It is important that the control cable slips easily through the hole in the end of the actuation latch. The actuation latch must be able to operate without interference from the control cable. Later, the movement of the actuation latch assembly will be tested before completing the setting of the CXV Controller. Approximately 1 in. (32 mm) of control cable (with crimp end not included) should be left under the actuation latch, when in the 'Released' position.

Pull the control cable through the pipe into the CXV Controller. There is a through hole in the end of the actuation latch. Carefully thread the control cable through the hole in the actuation latch. Slip a Crimp Sleeve (P/N 214951) over the end of the control cable. Making a loop, slip the end back through the Crimp Sleeve. Use the Crimping Tool (P/N 253538) to fasten the Crimp Sleeve to the control cable. Cut the loop off of the crimped cable assembly. Cut any loose end off as close to the Crimp Sleeve as possible.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 4-2.4.2 ATTACHING MICROSWITCHES, P/N 87-120039-001 When setting the cam/flag assembly, make sure the trigger pin turns under the Microswitch paddle(s) and pushes up to set the Microswitch. If the trigger pin is above or between the paddle and the Microswitch, the Microswitch will not change position upon actuation of the CXV Controller which could result in system malfunction. 4-2.4.3 HIGH MOUNTED MICROSWITCH (DEDICATED FOR THE 2320 CONTROL PANEL CONNECTION) Note: The High Mounted Microswitch comes factory installed in the CXV Controller.

The High Mounted Microswitch mounts with the paddle(s) facing up into the cam/flag assembly. When in the 'Set' position, the cam/flag assembly pushes down on the paddle(s) of the Microswitch. When the cam/flag assembly is released, the Microswitch(es) release and change position (see Figure 4-12 for wiring diagram, and Figures 4-7 and 4-8 for mounting). The Microswitches are best mounted when the system is in the 'Released' position. Two pairs of #4 screws are included with each Microswitch kit: 5/8 in. long and 1 in. long x 3/32" Allen Key. If mounting a single switch, use the 5/8 in. screws. If mounting two switches, use the 1-inch long screws. After mounting the Microswitch, turn the cam/ flag assembly to the 'Set' position to ensure the paddles move far enough down to change the phase of the Microswitch. Use the included pigtail assembly to connect the Microswitch to the circuit being monitored. Note: It is recommended that the pigtails be threaded into the port before attempting to plug it onto the Microswitch contacts. All splices and connections should be made in a separate approved electrical box connected by EMT or other approved conduit. See NFPA 70 and 72 for proper wiring guidelines.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 4-2.4.4 DEEP MOUNTED MICROSWITCH (FOR GENERAL USE) The Deep Mounted Microswitch mounts with the paddle(s) facing down, away from the cam/flag assembly and trigger. When in the 'Set' position, the trigger pin pushes up on the paddle(s) of the Microswitch. When the cam/flag assembly is released, the Microswitch(es) release and change position. See Figure 4-11 for wiring diagram. See Figures 4-9 and 4-10 for mounting information. The Microswitches should be mounted when the system is in the 'Released' position. Two pairs of #4 screws are included with each Microswitch Kit: 5/8 in. long and 1 in. long x 3/32" Allen Key. If mounting a single Microswitch, use the 5/8" screws. If mounting two Microswitches, use the 1 in. long screws. After mounting the Microswitch, turn the cam/flag assembly to the 'Set' position to ensure the paddles move far enough down to change the position of the Microswitch. Use the included pigtail assembly to connect the Microswitch to the circuit being monitored. Note: It is recommended that the pigtails be threaded into the port before attempting to plug it onto the Microswitch contacts. All splices and connections should be made in a separate electrical junction box connected by EMT or other approved conduit. See NFPA 70 and 72 for proper wiring guidelines. Mounting the Microswitch with the pigtails attached and inserted into the outlet is recommended.

Secure the hose back onto the Manual/Pneumatic Control Head. Ensure that the fit is properly snug to prevent leakage. Refer to Figure 4-18. 4-4.3.1 DISPOSAL OF CARTRIDGE The following are the recommend instructions for disposal of spent cartridges. Never dispose of a pressurized cartridge. Cartridges must be discharged before discarding. Filled gas cartridges may be dangerous if not handled properly. Do not heat cartridges above 120F (49C). Pressurized cartridges that become overheated can explode, and thereby cause property damage, severe personal injury, and possibly death. Determine if gas is present in the cartridge. All puncturable type disposable cartridges are presumed to be fully charged unless the small puncturable end (opposite of the rounded bottom) is clearly punctured. If the puncture is not clear, the cartridge may be weighed using a scale capable of reading in grams accurate to 0.1 g. The weight of the cartridge shall be less than the indicated weight imprinted on the side of the cartridge by the amount of the indicated charge. After using one of the methods described to determine that no gas is present in the cartridge, the cartridge may be placed with normal refuse, or may be placed with steel recycling materials. All of the steel cartridges are produced from a low carbon (14) steel product. Once empty, no residue remains. Cross cutting or sectioning is not required.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 5-2 GENERAL OPERATING PROCEDURES The following paragraphs will instruct the end-user how to operate the system using the various types of operation (refer to Figure 5-1). 5-2.1 Automatic Operation Automatic operation is when the system is operated automatically via a detection and control system (i.e., there is no manual intervention). The following is a sequence of automatic operation: 1. Smoke/heat is detected; a signal is sent to the control panel. 2. The control panel sends an actuation signal to the Electric Actuator in the CXV Controller. 3. The Electric Actuator in the CXV Controller trips, activating the puncture pin and releasing nitrogen from the System Cartridge in the CXV Controller. 4. The nitrogen pressurizes the actuation lines, opening the Cylinder Valve and releasing agent (FM-200) through the distribution Tubing and ADAs. 5-2.2 Electric/Manual Operation via the Fenwal 2320 Control Panel Electric/Manual operation is when the system is operated via a remote electric pull station or release switch located on the cover of the 2320 Control Panel. The following is a sequence of electric/manual operation: 1. Fire/smoke is visually detected. 2. The operator manually pulls the electric pull station, or presses the release switch on the 2320 Control Panel. 3. The 2320 Control Panel sends an actuation signal to the Electric Actuator in the CXV Controller. 4. The Electric Actuator in the CXV Controller trips, releasing nitrogen from the System Cartridge in the CXV Controller. 5. The nitrogen pressurizes the actuation lines, opening the Cylinder Valve and releasing agent (FM-200) through the distribution Tubing and ADAs. 5-2.3 Manual Operation via the CXV Controller Manual operation via the CXV Controller is when the system is actuated locally or remotely via the CXV Controller. The following is a sequence of operation via the CXV Controller: 1. Fire/smoke is visually detected. 2. The operator manually pulls the remote Cable Pull Station which is connected to the CXV Controller, or the operator manually pulls the Safety Pin on the CXV Controller, and turns the red release handle. 3. The puncture pin in the CXV Controller trips, releasing nitrogen from the System Cartridge in the CXV Controller. 4. The nitrogen pressurizes the actuation lines, opening the Cylinder Valve and releasing agent (FM-200) through the Agent Distribution Tubing and ADAs.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 6-2.3.2 WEIGH IN-CABINET SYSTEM CYLINDERS Weigh In-Cabinet System cylinders as follows: 1. Remove Manual/Pneumatic Control Head from each cylinder. 2. Disconnect Agent (FM-200) Distribution Tubing from each valve outlet. Install protection cap on In-Cabinet System cylinder valve actuation port and safety outlet cap on cylinder valve outlet port. 3. Open T-Bolt strap and remove cylinder. 4. Place the cylinder on a scale. 5. Record the weight and date on the record card and attach it to the In-Cabinet System cylinder. The gross weight and tare (empty) weight are ink stamped on the In-Cabinet System cylinder neck label. Therefore, subtract tare weight from the gross weight to determine net weight of original charge. Then, subtract tare weight from scale reading to determine net weight of the FM-200 agent remaining in the cylinder. If the recorded agent net weight is less than 95% of original charge net weight, replace the cylinder with a fully charged cylinder. 6. If the cylinder weight meets requirements, reinstall the cylinder (refer to Paragraph 4-2.1). 6-2.3.3 ADA SERVICE Service nozzles after use as follows: 1. Clean outside of ADAs with a rag or soft brush. 2. Examine discharge orifices for damage or blockage. If ADAs appear to be obstructed, unscrew the ADAs and clean by immersing in cleaning solvent and drying thoroughly with lint-free cloth. Replace damaged ADAs with ADAs of the part number and in the same location. See Paragraph 3-2.1.8 and 4-2.2.2 for correct ADA placement and orientation.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 7. Inspect the actuating lines for leakage. Note: If any leakage is observed, appropriate steps must be taken to implement corrective action. However, pressure should be bled off before any action is implemented on the actuating lines.

The system uses high pressure. Safety goggles or glasses must be worn. Loosen the fitting slowly and carefully. Bleed all pressure out gradually. Failure to observe these cautions could result in bodily injury. 8. After ensuring there is no leakage, loosen the swivel fitting located on the hose at the Manual/Pneumatic Control Head. Allow the pressure to vent slowly. When the pressure is completely vented, disconnect the fitting and remove the cover. To avoid accidental discharge later in the service sequence, it is important to completely disconnect the fitting outside the CXV Controller. 9. Remove the spent cartridge used for the functional test. 10. Discard the spent cartridge in an appropriate manner (see Paragraph 6-3.3.4.1). Check to ensure the detection lines are set. Reset the cam/flag assembly and reinstall the Keeper Pin into the cam/flag assembly. Note: Ensure the Microswitches are setting properly. Check the deep mount Microswitches to ensure the trigger pin is under the paddles of the Microswitches and is pushing them up. Check the high mount Microswitches to ensure the cam/flag assembly is pushing down on the paddles.

11. Install the Keeper Pin into the local manual release handle of the cover assembly. Install a tamper indicator through the safety pin and around the handle. A System Nitrogen Cartridge is required for final system set up. Using any other cartridge could cause malfunction or non-function of the system. 12. Locate the System Nitrogen Cartridge (P/N 87-120043-001). In the area provided, write the date of installation of the cartridge. Carefully install the System Nitrogen Cartridge into the valve assembly of the CXV Controller. Hand-tighten in until it is snug. Note: Do not use a wrench or other tool to tighten the cartridge. Hand tightening is sufficient. If leakage is observed, check the condition of the flat gasket in the valve bore.

13. Locate the cover of the assembly. Ensure the tamper seal remains intact in the safety pin. 14. Remove the Keeper Pin from the cam/flag assembly. 15. Carefully install the cover onto the CXV Controller enclosure. The cover has a tongue that fits into the groove of the CXV Controller enclosure. Center the cover over the CXV Controller enclosure and fit the tongue and groove together.

Carefully install the Manual/Pneumatic Control Head to each cylinder. 6-3.3.5.1 Disposal of Cartridge The following are the recommend instructions for disposal of spent cartridges. Never dispose of a pressurized cartridge. Cartridges must be discharged before discarding. Filled gas cartridges may be dangerous if not handled properly. Do not heat cartridges above 120F (49C). Pressurized cartridges that become overheated can explode, and thereby cause property damage, severe personal injury, and possibly death. Determine if gas is present in the cartridge. All puncturable type disposable cartridges are presumed to be fully charged unless the small puncturable end (opposite of the rounded bottom) is clearly punctured. If the puncture is not clear, the cartridge may be weighed using a scale capable of reading in grams accurate to 0.1 g. The weight of the cartridge shall be less than the indicated weight imprinted on the side of the cartridge by the amount of the indicated charge. After using one of the methods described to determine that no gas is present in the cartridge, the cartridge may be placed with normal refuse, or may be placed with steel recycling materials. All of the steel cartridges are produced from a low carbon (14) steel product. Once empty, no residue remains. Cross cutting or sectioning is not required.

10. Check the paddles on the High-Mounted Microswitches to ensure they are properly placed. Turn the cam/flag assembly to check engagement with the Microswitch paddles. Only the System Nitrogen Cartridge shall be used for final system set up. Using any other cartridge could cause malfunction or non-function of the system in an emergency situation. 11. Once these steps have been performed, proceed with all Functional and Actuation Tests according to Paragraph 6-2.3.3 and 6-2.3.5. At the completion of the Actuation Test, install a new System Nitrogen Cartridge. In the space provided, write in the date the cartridge is being installed. Carefully install the System Nitrogen Cartridge into the valve assembly of the CXV Controller. Hand tighten until it is snug. Note: Do not use a wrench or other tool to tighten the cartridge. Hand tightening is sufficient. If leakage is observed, check the condition of the cam and flat gasket/ puncture pin in the valve bore.

12. Install System Inspection Tag. Note: Do not install the tag onto the local manual release handle. Attach it to another part of the system where is will not interfere with system operation.

13. Verify that the system Owners Manual is in place. 14. Review system operation with the owner or other responsible persons. 15. Dispose of cartridge according to the instructions in Paragraph 6-3.3.5.1.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 6-4 INSPECTION AND RETEST PROCEDURES FOR IN-CABINET SYSTEM CYLINDERS When the visual inspection shows evidence of damage or corrosion, the cylinder must be emptied, retested and restamped in accordance with DOT CFR Title 49, Section 173.34. Note: These guidelines do not apply to cylinders containing commodities other than FM-200.

All Fenwal In-Cabinet System cylinders are designed, fabricated and factory tested at 720 PSIG (49.6 bar gauge) in compliance with DOT CFR 49 or 4B-360 as stamped on each cylinder. Two sets of regulations apply to periodic inspection and test procedures depending on whether the cylinders were discharged or will be transported. 6-4.1 Cylinders Continuously in Service Without Discharge These cylinders are governed by NFPA 2001 regulations. Cylinders in continuous service without discharge require a complete external visual inspection every 5 years in accordance with Compressed Gas Association Pamphlet C-6, Section 3 except that the cylinders need not be emptied or stamped while under pressure. Record the date of inspection on the record tag attached to each cylinder. Where there is damage or corrosion, the cylinder must be emptied, retested and restamped in accordance with DOT CFR Title 49, Section 173.34. 6-4.2 Discharged Cylinders or Charged Cylinders that are Transported These cylinders may come under NFPA 2001 requirements, or in the case of shipment of charged cylinders, DOT, federal or state regulations may apply. In either case, the cylinders must not be charged and shipped if more than 5 years have elapsed from the date of the last test date stamped on the cylinders. The cylinders must be retested and restamped in accordance with DOT CFR (Code of Federal Regulation) Title 49, Section 173.34. 6-4.3 Retest DOT 4B-360 cylinders are required to be hydrostatically retested and restamped every 5 years in accordance with DOT CFR Title 49, Section 173.34(e) prior to recharge and shipment. An alternate option is an external visual inspection performed instead of the hydrostatic test at the time the periodic retest becomes due in accordance with CFR 49, Section 173.34(e) (13). Therefore, the retest can be performed by either of the following methods: Table 6-6. Retest Method
Retest Method Full hydrostatic test including determination of cylinder expansion External visual inspection per Paragraph 173.34(e) (13) and CGA Pamphlet C-6, Section 3 First Retest Due 5 years 5 years Subsequent Retest Due 5 years 5 years Special Marking Retest Date Month/Year Retest Date Followed by "E"

CHAPTER 7 POST-DISCHARGE MAINTENANCE


7-1 INTRODUCTION Follow these procedures after the system has been activated and FM-200 has been discharged. 7-2 7-2.1 POST-FIRE MAINTENANCE In-Cabinet System Valve Inspection and Service The In-Cabinet Suppression System does not require any special maintenance following a system discharge. 7-3 RECHARGING IN-CABINET SYSTEM CYLINDERS In-Cabinet System cylinders may require retest before recharging (see Paragraph 6-4 for details on cylinder retest). Under no circumstances while performing either cylinder recharge or leak test should a charged cylinder be allowed to free stand without either the charging apparatus attached or the safety cap installed. Whenever these devices are not installed, a charged cylinder must be securely clamped to a rigid structure capable of sustaining the full thrust that would result should the valve inadvertently open. In-Cabinet System charging equipment consists of a storage container, tubing adapter, control valves, strainer, pressure gauge, flexible hoses, seating adapter, recharge adapter, pump, regulated nitrogen supply, scale and interconnecting plumbing. Recharge equipment must be suitable for the purpose intended and must be compatible with FM-200. A typical charging system schematic is shown in Figure 7-1. Locate the charging equipment in a clean, well-ventilated area near the FM-200 supply and cylinder storage. There should be sufficient room for handling the cylinders to and from the charging equipment. Note: During recharge, do not use the cylinder pressure gauge to determine charging pressure.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems Only qualified, designated personnel should operate charging equipment. Exercise extreme care when working with pressure equipment to prevent injury to personnel and damage to property, resulting from careless handling or possible equipment failure. Perform all operations in an assigned area cleared of all unauthorized personnel. Make sure all equipment is properly secured. Never attempt to adjust or disassemble pressurized equipment. 1. Before charging, check the cylinder for the last hydrostatic test date. Perform any required DOT hydrostatic tests (see Paragraph 6-4). 2. Check the cylinder valve assembly for any unacceptable physical defects (for example, cracks of any kind, elongated pits of any length, inclusions of any size, pitting, bulging, dents, corrosion, fire damage, mechanical defects, scratches, nicks, or gouges if more than superficial in nature). These defects shall be cause for rejection. Dangerously high pressures may be generated if FM-200 is introduced into a cylinder containing nitrogen at a pressure above 10 PSIG (0.7 bar). 3. Weigh the cylinder/valve assembly to verify the quantity of agent in the cylinder. Ensure that no more than 10 PSIG (0.7 bar gauge) of nitrogen is in the cylinder before filling. FM-200 is a colorless, odorless gas, low in toxicity, and is an extremely effective fire suppression agent. FM-200 can be liquefied by compression, and is normally shipped and stored in this condition. Being a liquefied and compressed gas, FM-200 is stored and handled under saturated conditions (that is, the liquid and vapor coexist in equilibrium). Reducing the pressure without reducing the temperature may cause the liquid to flash into vapor with accompanying refrigeration effects. By understanding the physical properties of FM-200 and its safe handling techniques, the agent may be transferred from shipping cylinders to the desired end use container safely. 4. Close all valves in the charging system. 5. Open FM-200 supply valves (Items 19, 21, 10, 9, 11, 8, and 27 in Figure 7-1). DO NOT open valve (Item 22) at this time. Pressure gauge (Item 28) should indicate supply pressure. Crack the vent valve (Item 30) until FM-200 liquid is present. Close valve (Item 30). 6. Turn 3-way valve (Item 9) to the return line position. Open valve (Item 24). Crack vent valve (Item 23) until FM-200 liquid is present. Close valve (Item 23). Open valve (Item 22). Charging system is now ready for use. 7. Position FM-200 cylinder/valve assembly (Item 26) (with safety cap and plastic Protection Cap in place and properly connected) on weigh scale (Item 3). Monitor scale. Empty weight of cylinder assembly must be stamped on cylinder valve nameplate. 8. Remove the safety cap and immediately connect the cylinder to the charging system by assembling the recharge adapter (Item 1) to the cylinder assembly outlet port. Note: The main piston in the cylinder valve assembly will unseat, permitting flow into the assembly when a 10 PSIG (0.7 bar gauge) differential (approximate) exists at the outlet port. Valve assembly seating occurs with removal of pressure from valve assembly outlet port.

9. Monitor the scale (Item 3) and record the empty cylinder assembly weight as A. Determine charge weight C=A+B+N2, where B is weight of FM-200 agent indicated on the valve nameplate. 10. Open valve (Item 29) and start pump (Item 14). Monitor the weigh scale (Item 3). When it indicates charge weight C, shut off the pump and close FM-200 supply valves (Items 29 and 8). Note: The 360 PSIG (10.3 bar gauge) pressure applies to the filling procedure with nitrogen and FM-200 at 70F +/- 10F. When the temperature is other than 70F, refer to Table 7-2 for required total pressure. Do not fill FM-200 cylinders at temperatures below 60F or above 90F. 360 PSIG + 10.3, - 0 PSIG, at 70F (24.8 bar gauge +1.7, -0 bar gauge at 21C) is the final pressure required after the charged container has had sufficient time to stabilize.

11. Open the handwheel valve on nitrogen supply valve (Item 16) and nitrogen valve (Item 7). Adjust the regulator (Item 17) until the master gauge shows a pressure of 360 PSIG + 10.3, -0 PSIG (24.8 bar gauge + 1.7, -0 bar gauge). 12. Open the hose control valve (Item 29) and let nitrogen flow into the cylinder until the master gauge indicates 360 PSIG (24.8 bar gauge). Cylinder agitation will assist with the equilibrium of nitrogen and FM-200. Additional nitrogen may be needed as the cylinder equilibrates. 13. Open the vent valve (Item 4) on the recharge adapter (Item 1) to rapidly vent FM-200 from the valve assembly outlet port. The sudden decrease in pressure at the valve outlet will ensure the valve seat. Any hissing or discharge coming from vent valve (Item 4) indicates that the piston is not seated properly or has opened. If this occurs, repeat steps #11-13. Verify that the cylinder valve piston remains closed. 14. Close the nitrogen supply valve (Item 16) and open vent valve (Item 30) to vent nitrogen from the supply line. 15. Remove the recharge adapter and replace it with the safety outlet cap. 16. Weigh the fully charged cylinder. The weight must agree with weight stamped on cylinder valve nameplate. Record date of recharge on cylinder record tag. 17. Monitor cylinder valve gauge. Gauge indicator must read 360 PSIG + 10.3 -0PSIG at 70F (24.8 bar gauge +1.7, -0 bar gauge at 21C) (after the stabilization period). 18. Cylinder is now ready for leak test (refer to Paragraph 7-3.3). The agent (FM-200) containers have been designed for a maximum fill density of 37 lb./ft.3 (593 kg/m3) and super pressurized with nitrogen to 360 PSIG + 10.3 PSIG at 70F (24.8 bar gauge +1.7, -0 bar gauge at 21C). It is important that these values not be exceeded. The pressure in the agent container is significantly affected by fill density and temperature. At elevated temperatures the rate of increase in pressure is very sensitive to fill density (refer to Figure 2-6). If the maximum fill density is exceeded, the pressure will increase rapidly with temperature increase and present a hazard to personnel and property. Adherence to the limits on fill density and pressurization levels will prevent excessively high pressures from occurring if the agent container is exposed to elevated temperature; minimizing the possibility of an inadvertent discharge of agent (FM-200) through the pressure relief device. Note: When charging more than one cylinder, it may be advantageous to leave the pump (Item 14) running. In this case, when a cylinder is full, rotate 3-way valve (Item 9) to direct the flow back to the supply tank through the FM-200 return line. To resume charging operations, return the 3-way valve (Item 9) back to the Filling position.

To change FM-200 shipping container (Item 25) close cylinder valves (Items 19 and 22), close valves (Items 21 and 24). Carefully open vent valves (Items 20 and 23) to bleed pressure. Disconnect charging lines from FM-200 supply cylinder. Position new FM-200 supply cylinder in place. Connect charging lines to new FM-200 supply cylinder, ensuring vapor and liquid lines are connected to proper valves. Close vent valves (Items 20 and 23). Open valves (Items 21 and 24).

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 7-3.2 In-Cabinet System Cylinder Leak Test Clamp the cylinder securely in place. The clamping device and supports must be capable of withstanding a thrust force of 90 lb. (41 kg). This approximates the thrust force generated out of the cylinder valve outlet on a full, wide open discharge. In-Cabinet System cylinder leak tests must be conducted in a well-ventilated area, away from the charging station so as not to be influenced by extraneous FM-200 vapors released during the filling operations. Fenwal recommends the Yokogawa Type H10.3C leak detector for FM-200 and the Yokogawa Type LS-20 leak standard for FM-200 for calibrating the leak detector. 1. Warm up the leak detector for 30 minutes before proceeding with Step 2. 2. Calibrate the detector against the LS-20 leak standard by holding the probe about 1/8 in. (3 mm) away, and noting the meter deflection for the leakage allowance of the standard. Maximum allowable leak rates are shown in Table 7-3. 3. Remove the safety outlet cap from the discharge outlet. Blow nitrogen on the surface where the plug was removed. 4. Move probe back and forth slowly approximately 1/8 in. (3 mm) away from all potential leak points (discharge outlet area, safety outlet, valve-to-cylinder connections, gauge and container welds). If the meter deflections are greater than those that occurred during calibration, the cylinder/valve assembly has failed the leaked test. 5. Replace the safety cap immediately after the test. 6. If the assembly failed the leak test in step 4, salvage the FM-200 agent, perform the required maintenance on the container, and recharge. 7. After the leak test is complete, reassemble the plastic Protection Cap to the actuation port of valve assembly and the safety outlet cap to the valve outlet. Unclamp the cylinder. Table 7-3.

Salvaging FM-200 from Leaking Cylinder Assembly Target container must be significantly larger than the source container to prevent dangerous pressure build up. For item numbers in the following instructions, refer to Figure 7-1. 1. Close the FM-200 supply valve (Item 19) and close valve (Item 21). Open valve (Item 20) to vent pressure. Disconnect the charging flexible hose from the FM-200 supply valve (Item 19). 2. Connect the salvage discharge assembly to the flexible hose coupling. Then assemble the discharge assembly to the outlet port of the leaking cylinder assembly (not shown). 3. Position an empty cylinder assembly of suitable size for FM-200 storage on the scale. Record the empty weight.

In-Cabinet/Small Enclosure Fire Suppression Systems 4. Connect the recharge adapter (Item 1) to the empty cylinder outlet port. 5. Assemble a Manual/Pneumatic Control Head onto the cylinder valve actuation port of the leaking cylinder assembly. 6. Check that all charging system valves are closed. Open valves (Items 8, 9, 10, 11, 21 and 27). Depress the lever on the Manual/Pneumatic Control Head. The pressure gauge (Item 28) should indicate the supply pressure. Crack vent valve (Item 30) until FM-200 liquid is present. Shut valve (Item 30). 7. If the cylinder assembly on the scale is of sufficient size and is being used to store FM-200, monitor the scale, open the valve (Item 29) and start the pump. Continue pumping until a maximum of FM-200 is transferred from the leaking cylinder assembly as indicated by a pressure drop on the pressure gauge. 8. If the cylinder assembly on the scale is being charged, fill with the required weight of FM-200 by adding the required pounds to the empty cylinder weight. Follow the charging procedure outlined in steps 3 through 18 of Paragraph 7-3.1. Conduct a cylinder leak test as described in Paragraph 7-3.1. 9. Continue to transfer the FM-200 agent until the leaking cylinder assembly is empty as indicated by pressure drop as measured by the pressure gauge. Shut off the pump and close the hose control valve (Item 29) and valve (Item 21). 10. Open valve (Item 20) to vent pressure, then disassemble the adapter from the outlet port of the leaking cylinder assembly and from the flexible hose hookup. Reassemble the flexible hose to the FM-200 supply valve (Item 19). 11. If the cylinder assembly being recharged, is not charged sufficiently, continue the charging procedure as indicated in Paragraph 7-3.1 using the FM-200 supply. 7-4 CXV CONTROLLER POST-DISCHARGE MAINTENANCE 1. Loosen the swivel fitting located on the Hose/Tubing at the Manual/Pneumatic Control Head. Allow the pressure to vent slowly. When the pressure is completely vented, disconnect the Hose/ Tubing from the CXV Controller. 2. Remove the cover of the CXV Controller. 3. Remove the spent cartridge and dispose according to Paragraph 6-3.3.4.1. 4. To reset the CXV Controller, refer to Paragraph 6-2.3.4. 7-5 2320 CONTROL PANEL POST-DISCHARGE MAINTENANCE 1.
