Clean agent suppression systems have benefits over traditional water sprinklers:
Clean agent fire suppression systems disperse and can often reach required concentration levels within 10 seconds, snuffing out a fire before it results in catastrophic damage. Clean Agent systems extinguish fires as opposed to just containing fires.
Minimal Cleanup and Residue
Clean Agent fire suppression and extinguishing solutions result in little to no cleanup, allowing operations to bounce back to normal fast.
Clean agents are safe for people and animals. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved a list of clean agents.
Options to Meet Your Needs
Whether your organization requires the “greenest,” the most cost-effective, or the most globally accepted fire suppression solutions available, clean agent suppression systems can be highly customized to meet these needs.
3M™ Novec™ Fire Protection Fluid
The most eco-friendly chemical clean agent available. Novec 1230 fire protection fluid extinguishes fires with minimal collateral damage and cleanup, and does so with zero ozone-depleting potential and a global warming potential of just one.
Novec 1230 fire protection fluid has the highest margin of safety for human occupancy among clean agents, including inert gas.
Extinguishes a fire in seconds, before it even starts and long before water-based systems discharge.
Helps protect irreplaceable paper documents and electronics. Because Novec 1230 fluid is a waterless fire suppression solution, it leaves no residue and is electrically non-conductive.
Provides the highest margin of safety for human occupancy of any clean agent solution.
Is not subject to the Halon 1301 phase out or HFC phasedown under any global regulatory body, including the Montreal Protocol.
Comes with a global environmental warranty — the 3M™ Blue Sky℠ Warranty, designed to provide additional peace of mind.
Is stored as a liquid and discharged as a gas.
Is appropriate for Class A, B and C fire hazards.
How does Novec 130 fire protection fluid work?
Novec 1230 fire protection fluid extinguishes a fire before it starts by rapidly removing heat. In a typical total flooding system, the fluid is stored as a liquid in cylinders pressurized with nitrogen. Automatic detection sensors trigger release when the fire is at the incipient stage, extinguishing it in mere seconds.
Novec 1230 fire protection fluid evaporates 50 times faster than water. In fact, you could soak a paperback book in a bath of Novec 1230 fire protection fluid and within a minute, pick it up and read where you left off.
The most globally accepted chemical agent with the greatest number of installations worldwide among the chemical agents.
The NFPA standard covering clean agent fire suppression systems and clean agent fire extinguishing systems is NFPA® 2001, Standard on Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems
