Novec fire suppression system is a clean and green fire fighting system. Novec system comprises of detectors, control unit, agent storage cylinders, piping and discharge nozzles.
The Novec Fire Suppression System combines a good environmental image with remarkable extinguishing efficacy. For usage as a gaseous fire suppressant, Novec 1230, C6F12O, fluid has a minimal global warming potential and no potential to deplete the ozone layer. The primary method by which Novec 1230 fire protection fluid puts out a fire is by taking away its heat. It is also non-conductive electrically.
It is typically used in places like museums, server rooms, banks, clean rooms, and hospitals where water from a fire sprinkler might harm valuable equipment or when water-based fire suppression is difficult.
Most problems that were previously protected with halon 1301 can now be protected with Novec 1230 fluid. How much of any halon substitute is needed to offer a comparable degree of protection depends on its physical characteristics. Although end-use design concentrations will be comparable, Novec 1230 fluid will need almost twice as much agent by weight as the corresponding halon system, necessitating only minor increases in storage space for the containers.
Any existing pipes would probably need to be replaced or at least augmented, however, the precise specifications for any given system can only be established after a thorough analysis of the current arrangement.
