Clean Agent Supression Systems using Novec 1230

3M™ Novec™ 1230 fire protection fluid is a next generation clean agent Halon alternative. It combines outstanding extinguishing performance with an excellent environmental profile. Novec 1230 fire protection fluid has zero ozone depletion potential, a global warming potential of one, a five day atmospheric lifetime, and a large margin of safety for occupied spaces. Novec 1230 fire protection fluid extinguishes fire primarily by removing heat from the fire. It is also electrically non-conductive. The following datasheets offer more information on the specific fire suppression systems utilizing Novec 1230 fire protection fluid that are available from Janus Fire Systems.

FM-200 Suppression Systems

FM-200® is a clean, colorless, and environmentally friendly fire suppression agent that is electrically non-conductive and safe for humans. It extinguishes flames primarily through heat absorption, leaving no residue, thus minimizing downtime after a fire and making FM-200 suppression systems accepted and respected worldwide with over one hundred thousand installations in more than seventy countries. The following datasheets offer more information on the specific FM-200 fire suppression systems available from Janus Fire Systems.

CO2 Suppression Systems

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colorless, odorless, and chemically inert gas that is both readily available and electrically non-conductive. It extinguishes fire primarily by lowering the level of oxygen that supports combustion in a protected area. This mechanism of fire suppression makes CO2 suppression systems highly effective, requiring minimal clean-up, but should be used in normally unoccupied hazard locations or otherwise avoided by personnel when discharged. CO2 suppression systems may utilize the gas through a total flooding approach but CO2 is also the only gaseous agent that may be utilized through local application. It may be stored in either high pressure spun steel cylinders or low pressure light wall refrigerated tanks.

Foam Suppression Systems

Fire suppression foam is comprised of three parts: foam concentrate, water, and air. When mixed correctly, these parts form a homogenous foam blanket that extinguishes flames by the combined mechanisms of cooling, separating the flame source from the product surface, suppressing vapors, and smothering. This makes foam suppression systems an effective option for protecting flammable and combustible liquids.

Vortex™ Suppression Systems

A Vortex™ system is a hybrid water/inert gas system that combines the best of inert gas and water mist fire suppression systems. Nitrogen and water are simultaneously discharged from a single emitter, atomizing the water to less than 10 μm and forming a dense homogenous suspension of nitrogen and water. This suspension then suppresses fire utilizing two mechanisms simultaneously: cooling and flame extinguishment. A Vortex system uses 88% less water per nozzle per minute than high-pressure water mist systems. The result is a system that is environmentally friendly, safe for humans, achieves full fire suppression with minimal wetting, and does not require room integrity.

Water Based Suppression Systems

Water based suppression systems utilize the inexpensive and readily available medium of water to douse flames through a normally fixed pipe system. The system attaches a reliable water supply to an automatically or manually actuated system valve that initiates the flow of water through spray nozzles arranged and designed specifically for each individual protected area.
