Novec Flooding System: Novec 1230, C6F12O, (3M Novec 1230) fluid is an environmentally friendly for use as a gaseous fire suppression agent. It is generally used in situations where water from a fire sprinkler would damage expensive equipment or where water-based fire protection is impractical, such as Museums, Critical Room Server room and Data Centre.Novec 1230 fluid is a high molecular weight material, compared with the first generation halocarbon clean agents. The product has a heat of vaporization of 88.1 kJ/kga and low vapor pressure. Although it is a liquid at room temperature it gasifies immediately after being discharged in a total flooding system. Novec 1230 fluid does not deplete ozone (ODP 0). Chemically, it is a fluorinated ketone with the systematic name 1,1,1,2,2,4,5,5,5-nonafluoro-4-(trifluoromethyl)-3-pentanone and the structural formula CF3CF2C(=O)CF(CF3)2, a fully fluorinated analog of ethyl isopropyl ketone.
Inergen Flooding System: Inergen agent is a mixture of three inert gases (52% Nitrogen, 42% Argon & 8% Carbon Dioxide). It extinguishes fire by lowering the oxygen content 15% below the level that supports combustion. During the discharge of Inergen in an enclosed area, it introduces the proper mixture of gas that still allows a person to breathe in a reduced oxygen atmosphere protecting such as computer / server / data room, telecommunication / switch gear room, process equipment, museums, etc.
Inergen exhibits no ozone depleting potentials, it does not contribute to global warming, nor does it contribute unique chemical species with extended atmospheric lifetime. It is certified as a “Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing System” Inergen Agent system storage pressure 150 / 200 bar is discharged in a hazardous area through the distributed network of manifolds, pipes, orifices plate and at nozzle with the pressure available minimum of 25 bar.
