Introduction to Clean Agents

Standards and Regulations on Clean Agents

NFPA 2001

The National Fire Protection Association developed its standard NFPA 2001 to cover the range of new clean agents that were introduced after the introduction of the production phase-out of Halon 1301. NFPA 2001 covers the design, installation, maintenance and operation of clean agent systems. This standard reflects the results of the U.S. EPA SNAP listing, the UL listing and FM approval processes. The listings and approvals aren't explicitly required by NFPA 2001. However, if these listing and approvals are not obtained, then similar information must be obtained utilizing similar methods. 

System design components that are not unique to a clean agent system or not obtained from a clean agent equipment manufacturer are incorporated into the NFPA 2001 standard. The detection system utilized to initiate operation of the clean agent system is incorporated into NFPA 2001 by reference to the NFPA standards on smoke detection systems.  Agent retention requirements in the protected space and methodology for determining agent retention are incorporated in the NFPA standard. The piping system requirements, in terms of fitting types and piping strength are specified for the clean agent and clean agent pressurization levels with reference to the appropriate ANSI, ASME and ASTM standards. 

The standard specifies the minimum documentation for system specification, installation, acceptance, inspection and maintenance.
