CLEAN & PEOPLE SAFE TOTAL FLODING
NOVEC 1230 FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM


StarAxiom offers Innovative and worlds industry leading Solutions in special hazard fire protection, providing fire suppression and protection for high value and/or mission critical Server rooms.

OVERVIEW

Automatic Total Flooding Fire Suppression System is an engineered system utilizing a fixed nozzle agent distribution network. The system is designed and installed in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 2001, “Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems.” When properly designed, the NOVEC 1230 system can suppress a surface burning fire in Class A, B, and C hazards. The fire fighting ability of the clean Agent system is achieved through 80% heat absorption and 20% direct chemical means (action of the fluorine radical on the chain reaction of a flame). Fire suppression using the NOVEC 1230 system has the following advantages:
  • Most effective when used with automatic detection to rapidly introduce FM-200 fire extinguishant agent
  • The ability to prevent re-ignition when concentration levels are maintained
  • Clean agent suitable for protection of high value assets
Automatic fire suppression systems control and extinguish fires without human intervention. Versatile fire suppression for vital facilities that cannot afford fire-related downtime. These systems suppress fires rapidly with gaseous fire suppression agents that are environmentally friendly and safe for use in Server rooms.
Using other fire suppressant in areas where electronics operate and irreplaceable, high-value assets are stored, could be as devastating. The Clean Agent System quickly suppresses fires and protects sensitive equipment without causing harm to people or the environment. The system is especially suited to suppress fires in areas where an electrically non-conductive medium is required, where electronic systems cannot be shut down in an emergency, where cleanup of other agents poses a problem, and in normally occupied areas that demand a non-toxic agent.

TECHNOLOGY

The system uses 3M Novec 1230 fluid ((CF3, CF2 C (O) CF (CF3))2, is a fluoroketone that consist of carbon, fluorine and oxygen. It is colorless, odorless, electrical nonconductive and suppresses the fire by removing the heat energy and interrupting the combustion peocess fire protection fluid for total flooding applications. The clear, colorless agent has zero ozone depletion potential, an atmospheric lifetime of just five days, and a global warming potential of 1.0. The system suppresses a fire before it can be fully engaged and once the fire is suppressed, Novec 1230 quickly evaporates without harming any valuable assets.

ADVANTAGES

  • Fast, reliable fire protection without the damaging side-effects of water
  • Suppresses a fire in seconds, reducing equipment damage and downtime
  • Easy to install in any new or existing server rack or closet and requires no power to operate
  • Clean suppression agents require no post-discharge cleanup
  • Will not harm people, equipment or the environment
  • System options expand peripheral capabilities
  • Clean agents will not harm electronic equipment or magnetic media and are OK to use on energized equipment
  • Does not interfere with installation or maintenance of equipment

SYSTEM OPERATIONS

The basic system consists of suppressing agent stored in high strength steel containers. Manual or automatic actuators are available for release of the agent into the hazard area. The agent is distributed and discharged through fixed piping and nozzles. Each nozzle is designed to deliver a uniform discharge of agent into the protected area. On large hazards, containers can be manifolded together. The containers are connected to the manifold by means of a flexible discharge bend and check valve. Automatic actuation is accomplished through an approved detection system. When a fire condition causes the detector(s) located in the hazard area to go into alarm, a signal is sent to the detection control panel. This causes actuation of the release circuit, which electrically operates the actuator located on the container valve. The actuator opens the valve and allows the agent to enter the piping network and discharge out the nozzles
