Novec™ 1230 – first safe fire extinguishing fluid 

About Novec™ 1230

Novec™ 1230 has been developed as an alternative to Halon 1301, production of which ceased at the end of 1993, under the agreed adjustments made to the Montreal Protocol in November 1992. Novec™ 1230 contains no Bromine or Chlorine and has therefore an Ozone depleting potential of zero. Novec™ 1230 systems utilise one or more storage containers arranged to provide the protected area with a pre-determined quantity of gas.  Novec™ 1230 storage containers are designed to hold Novec™ 1230 in liquid form and Nitrogen, which is used to super-pressurise the container to 24.8 bar at 20°C. The components used in the Novec™ 1230 systems are designed and tested to operate in the temperature range -20°C to 50°C.

Fire Extinguishing System

Novec™ 1230 systems are designed to extinguish fires involving flammable liquids, gases and in electrical equipment. Novec™ 1230 extinguishes fires by a combination of physical and chemical means. It does not deplete the oxygen content in the room and tests have shown it to be less toxic than Halons. A system comprises one or more containers connected to a system of pipework and nozzles. Novec™ 1230 is liquid under pressure and is stored in steel containers, each of which is fitted with a valve specially designed to allow the contents of the container to discharge rapidly. When the valve opens, Novec™ 1230 flows into the distribution pipework to the discharge nozzles where it is rapidly dispersed as a vapour.
