NOVEC 1230 has been certified by many international organizations and standards throughout the World and become a proferred alternative in fire suppression systems. Halon 1301 is prohibited in many countries within the framework of the Montreal Protocol due to its enviromental hazards, leading to technical developments in clean extinguishing agents. Today, Novec 1230 has introduced some new features that further raise the bar in the fire extinguisher market.
Novec 1230 fire extinguishing agent is a long-life and sustainable solution in fire protection applications with special hazard classes. This second-generation Halon alternative ensures high human safety, minimum environmental impact and provides superior extinguishing performance. Its Ozone Depletion Potential(ODP) equals tı zero, has an Atmospheric life time of only five days and a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1.
What Innovations Does Novec 1230 Introduce In Fire Suppression Systems?
Because it is a liquid at room temperature, it can be store at low vapor pressure containers and can be shipped safely by air in bulk quantities, without regulations or restrictions. It does not require sophisticated filling facilities, and therefore allows refilling on site easily.
This fire suppression agent can be used in existing installed Halon and other fire suppression systems though simple adaptation procedures.
