Tyco have been committed to the continued development of six types of inert and chemical gaseous fire suppression system.
As a result, during the past forty years, we have protected virtually every type of “Business/Process Critical Area” on land, at sea and in the harshest of environments imaginable.
Our continued success is reflected by the large number of global partnerships we maintain with some of the world’s top 100 companies within the industrial, commercial, marine, oil & gas and power generation market sectors.
Sapphire / Novec 1230
NOVEC 1230 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 pressurised with nitrogen to 25or 42 bar and rapidly extinguishes a fire through a combination of heat absorption (its main action) and some chemical interference with the flame.
Although stored in liquid form, NOVEC 1230 fluid will vaporise easily upon discharge, making it an effective total flooding agent for a variety of hazards. As a clean agent, it leaves no residue and is therefore ideally suited for Marine applications where high margins of safety and long-term sustainability are considered as important features.
All systems will be designed to meet the individual needs of our customer and in accordance with IMO & all Marine classification society rules and regulations.
