Novec 1230 Fire Suppression System Design


Novec 1230 Fire Suppression System Design For High Value Assets

Fire suppression systems can be designed for many different industries and applications, however there are some types of applications that require a specialised fire suppressant, where the typical water type is not applicable.

And so instead, a clean agent system, custom engineered to quickly suppress fires and protect sensitive equipment without harming people or the environment is made available called Novec 1230.

The Novec 1230 fire suppression system design allows highly sensitive or operational critical systems or facilities to be protected by fire without the need for water, which could cause just as much damage as fire itself.

Typical applications for Novec 1230:

• Computer Rooms
• Control Rooms
• Tape Storage & Vaults
• Military Sites
• Museums
• Substations
• Communication Rooms
• Medical Facilities
• Data Centres

So how is Novec 1230 Fire Suppression System Designed?

The core design is the revolutionary 3M Novec 1230 fire protection fluid, which is a clear, colourless and odourless clean agent. Designed to replace non-sustainable Halons, Halotron and dry chemicals- without compromising performance.

Stored in red cylinders in a fluid type form, once discharged Novec 1230 instantly vaporises, totally flooding the confines of the protected area, and absorbing heat better than water.

Once the present of fire danger has passed, Novec 1230 quickly evaporates without causing any harm to valuable objects or systems.

When it comes to protecting high value assets and the environment, Novec 1230 fire suppression systems designs represent the most effective fire protection on the market today.

Additionally, due to its liquid nature, Novec 1230 fluid is not regulated for transportation and can even be shipped by air.

You don’t need a crystal ball to look into the future and predict whether your fire suppression systems will remain a cost effective solution during the course of its life.

But it’s helpful to have the facts at hand.

Novec 1230 fire suppression systems are designed to leave no residue and is not corrosive. Dry chemicals on the other hand are corrosive and destructive to high value assets and electronics.

Using dry chemicals is these types of applications would present a risk of catastrophic loss to high value assets.

The loss of one data centre resulting from the misuse of a dry chemical suppression system could far surpass any premium paid for an advanced high performance Novec 1230 fire suppression design.
