NOVEC 1230 Extinguishing systems offer an outstanding performance, with a large margin of safety and excellent environmental profile. This system has low environmental impact , with zero ozone depletion potential and 5 day atmospheric lifetime, making it a viable, long term, sustainable technology for special hazard fire protection.
Novec 1230 has a very low heat of vaporisation, approximately 25 times less than water. This, along with a higher vapour pressure, causes the NOVEC liquid to evaporate more than 50 times faster than water. This allows the agent to transform from a liquid to a gaseous state very rapidly when discharged through a nozzle. The NOVEC itself will then vaporise quickly and evenly spread throughout the protected area.
