Novec 1230

Novec1230 is supplied in lightweight cylinders with a small footprint that requires minimal storage space.  Novec 1230 fluid has a boiling point of 49 degrees C and therefore exists as a liquid at room temperature. It is super-pressurised with nitrogen to 25 bar and rapidly extinguishes a fire through a combination of heat absorption (its main action) and some chemical interference with the flame.

Despite having a low boiling point, Novec 1230 fluid is effectively vaporised over a wide range of hazard temperatures. It is therefore ideally suited for Marine applications where high margins of safety and long-term sustainability are considered to be important features. 

One of the key advantages offered by Novec 1230 fluid’s high boiling point is that it presents very low vapour pressures, enabling it to be transported in lightweight totes or drums as opposed to steel pressurised containers. This allows Novec 1230 fluid to be readily air freighted to a ship at port or dockyard. Because both initial filling and recharging operations are possible by simply pouring the fluid into containers, prior to super-pressurising, the filling operation is far simpler than with traditional high-pressure gases.
