Compatible chemical program goes global

By Plant Engineering Staff April 6, 2007

The original FGG/BM System Compatible Program, established in 2002, has been expanded beyond the United States, Canada and Mexico and now includes 25 European countries, the United Arab Emirates, India and China. The expanded program is designed to increase user confidence and help eliminate the guesswork as to what products are chemically compatible.

The program’s updated name — FGG/BM/CZ System Compatible — reflects that it ensures chemical compatibility with FlowGuard Gold and Corzan water distribution systems, as well as BlazeMaster fire sprinkler systems. The FGG/BM/CZ System Compatible Program is designed to test and monitor ancillary products on an ongoing basis to ensure chemical compatibility with these three different CPVC piping systems.

Products in the program display the FGG/BM/CZ System Compatible mark on their label, which identifies that the product is chemically compatible with the CPVC products.
