Novec 1230 extinguishing systems

Novec 1230 Fireextinguishers with complete flooding

Novec 1230 fluid is a fluoroketon owned by 3M Company that offers several important advantages for the conventional halon replacement. Turning off the cooling effect, Novec 1230 fluid works as a gas, but it is a liquid at room temperature. Since from the factory it is not stored in pressurized cylinders, Novec 1230 fluid is easy to handle and recharged. Novec 1230 fluid system enables more efficient use of space, requiring about the same number of cylinders as the conventional halocarbon agents.


Novec 1230 fluid is non-corrosive, non-conductive and evaporates quickly, so it will not damage your high-value assets such as sensitive electronic items, navigation controls and equipment. The level of vaporization is fifty times greater than water. and, unlike foams and powders do not leave dirty residue, allowing the system to remain operational.
