Waterless Fire Suppression Systems

Niagara Fire installs the 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Waterless Fire Suppression System - the fluid is a sustainable HFC alternative that works quickly, cleanly and efficiently. 

Extinguish the fire, not the business. 

One fire protection fluid. So many reasons to use it.
Novec 1230 fluid offers a long-term, sustainable technology that has the greatest margin of safety, the lowest GWP for chemical clean agent alternatives, and zero ozone depletion potential.

What is Novec 1230 fluid?
Novec 1230 fluid is a fluoroketone – a proprietary 3M technology that offers a number of important advantages over conventional halon replacements.

How does it work?
Extinguishing via its cooling effect, Novec 1230 fluid works as a gas, yet it is a liquid at room temperature. Because it is not packaged under pressure, Novec 1230 fluid has unique shipping and handling advantages over high pressure alternatives. Also, systems using Novec 1230 fluid allow for more efficient use of space compared to inert gas systems.

Where is Novec 1230 fluid used?
Novec 1230 fluid is a highly efficient fire extinguishant that can be used for flooding applications in engineered and pre-engineered systems. 

It is ideal for special hazards: spaces where the continuous operation of high-value equipment is paramount. Examples include: telecommunication switch rooms, computer and electronic control rooms, hazards aboard ships and critical military applications such as vehicle engine and crew bay protection. It is also ideal for environments such as libraries, cultural facilities, storage rooms, archives and museums, where valuable items must not be damaged bya fire extinguishing agent.

What sets it apart?
Novec 1230 fluid has zero ozone depletion potential and the lowest atmospheric lifetime for chemical clean agent alternatives: 5 days. The next closest halon alternative is 29 years.

Novec 1230 fluid has a Global Warming Potential of 1, which is 99.9% lower than any halocarbon agent acceptable for use in occupied spaces.

Novec 1230 fluid has the largest margin of safety among chemical clean agents for use in occupied spaces.

It makes good business sense to use Novec 1230 fluid because it is a sustainable, long-term technology. Not only does Novec 1230 fluid meet today’s regulations but it also meets those of the foreseeable future.
