The Novec 1230 clean agent system is custom-engineered to quickly suppress fires and protect sensitive equipment without causing harm to people or the environment. The heart of the system is revolutionary Novec 1230 fire protection fluid, a clear, colorless, and odorless clean agent. Stored in cylinders in its fluid form, Novec 1230 instantly vaporizes upon discharge, tandem with a sophisticated control panel, the Novec system suppresses a fire before it can start by detecting it at invisible levels. Once the danger has passes, Novec 1230 quickly evaporated without harming any valuable assets.
Suppression systems using Novec 1230 represent the most effective fire protection on the market today. These systems are especially suited to suppress fires in areas where an electrically non-conductive medium is required, where electronic systems cannot be shut down in an emergency, where cleanup of other agents poses a problem, and in normally occupied areas that demand a non-toxic fire suppression agent.
Safe for People Because it is used at concentrations of only 4 to 6% by volume, well below the 10% concentration maximum for safe exposure, Novec 1230 provides the widest safety margin of any chemical clean agent available today. In accordance with NFPA 2001, Novec 1230 is safe for occupied areas.
Safe for the Planet An ozone depletion potential (ODP) of zero, a global warming potential (GWP) of one and a five-day atmospheric lifetime (the next closest is 33 years) makes Novec 1230 the cleanest, most environmentally-friendly chemical agent in existence.
