Novec 1230

Novec-1230 Gas Fire Suppression

The Novec-1230 Fire Suppression Agent and systems utilize 3M’s Novec 1230 gas fire protection fluid – a clear, colourless and low odour clean agent. Novec 1230 is a synthetic Gaseous Suppression agent that instantly vaporizes upon discharge, absorbing heat and providing total flooding of protected areas.

FSP only stocks and recommends genuine 3m Novec-1230. Cheap knock-offs are not worth the potential problems that may result from using them. We won’t risk our business or yours.

Unlike other halocarbon halon alternatives, Novec has good environmental credentials as it does not deplete ozone (ODP of 0) and has a Global Warming Potential (GWP of <1) less than that of CO2 (which is the GWP baseline of 1).

The Novec Fire Suppression System is especially suited for suppressing Special Hazard fires in occupied spaces, in areas where an electrically non-conductive medium is required, where electronic systems cannot automatically shut down in an emergency and where cleanup of other agents poses a problem.

Applications for Novec-1230 Systems:

  • Aviation facilities Commercial/naval vessels
  • Computer and electronic control rooms
  • Critical military systems Data processing centres
  • Medical facilities Museums Offshore platforms
  • Power generation plants, Tape storage and vaults Telecommunication sites

Novec-1230 System Design

Like all other Synthetic Fire Suppression Agents, Novec-1230 System Design requires specialist training and knowledge, much of which only comes from experience. The Primary Design consideration for Novec 1230 Fire Suppression Systems is that the cylinders are required to be located immediately adjacent to (and sometimes within) the protected area.

A well designed Novec-1230 fire suppression system poses many technical challenges. It requires many additional considerations to correctly eliminate the risk to critical assets caused by fire or water-based extinguishing agents. With many decades of suppression experience, our design team have the knowledge and expertise to assist our clients.
