One fire protection fluid so many reasons to use it.

Here is the new standard for halon replacement. Novec 1230 fluid offers a long-term, sustainable technology that has the greatest margin of safety, the lowest GWP for halocarbon alternatives, and zero ozone depletion potential.

What is Novec 1230 fluid?

Novec 1230 fluid is a fluoroketone - a proprietary 3M technology that offers a number of important advantages over conventional halon replacements.

How does it work?

Extinguishing via its cooling effect, Novec 1230 fluid works as a gas, yet it is a liquid at room temperature. Because it is not stored or shipped from the factory in pressurized cylinders, Novec 1230 fluid is
easy to handle and charge. Novec 1230 fluid systems allow for more efficient use of space, requiring about the same number of cylinders as conventional
halocarbon agents.

Where is Novec 1230 fluid used?

Novec 1230 fluid is a highly efficient fire extinguishant that
can be used for both streaming and flooding applications. It is ideal for special hazards: spaces where the criticality of maintaining operation of high-value equipment is paramount. Examples include: telecommunication switch rooms, computer and electronic control rooms, hazards aboard ships, critical military applications such as engine and crew bay, and flight line protection.

Novec 1230 fluid has zero ozone depletion potential and the lowest atmospheric lifetime for halocarbon alternatives: 5 days. The closest alternative is 33 years.
It has a Global Warming Potential of 1, 99.9% lower than any halocarbon agent acceptable for use in occupied spaces.
Novec 1230 fluid has the greatest margin of safety for use in occupied spaces.
It makes good business sense to use Novec 1230 fluid because it is a sustainable, long-term technology. Not only does
Novec 1230 fluid meet today's regulations but it meets those of the foreseeable future.
Novec 1230 fluid is supported by global sales, technical and customer service resources, with fully-staffed technical service laboratories in the U.S., Europe, Japan and Southeast Asia.
