The SEVO 1230 FORCE500 Clean Agent Fire Suppression System is a new technology for clean agent systems that uses 3M Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid and can be pressurised to 500 psi.
It allows for longer pipe runs and smaller pipe diameters in addition to its cost saving benefits of using less clean agent in smaller and/or fewer cylinders per project. Along with these new engineering capabilities, it includes standard monitoring components such as an integrated pressure switch, pressure gauge and gauge guard. The low vapour pressure of Novec 1230 fluid allows for use of low pressure welded cylinders and Schedule 40 piping.
The higher flow rate of the FORCE500 system allows for enhanced piping limitations. When protecting a main and subfloor hazard with a 360 psi system, a minimum additional 5% agent is required in the subfloor to compensate due to these piping limitations.
The higher pressure of the FORCE500 system allows the use of smaller cylinder sizes compared to 360 psi systems. In large, multicylinder systems, the FORCE500 requires fewer cylinders than the equivalent 360 psi systems due to its added pressure.
The FORCE500 features longer pipe lengths between the cylinder and nozzle as well as longer distances between the first and last nozzle. This allows for complex nozzle layouts with smaller pipe sizes and longer pipe runs.
The SEVO CAPS (Clean Agent Pumping System) fill and recharge station is an easy to use, highly portable pumping and pressurisation system. This closed filling operation provides a SEVO approved method for filling and pressurisation. It eliminates the need to remove agent storage cylinders requiring service by providing the user with a lightweight, tray mounted pump that can be taken into the field.
With zero ozone depletion potential, extremely low global warming potential and short atmospheric lifetime, Novec 1230 Fluid is the first chemical halon replacement to offer a viable, long-term, sustainable technology for special hazards fire protection.
