Tyco are a leading inert and chemical gaseous fire suppression systems provider whose “track record” for providing “long term sustainable” gaseous fire suppression systems remains unbeatable and beyond reproach.We have achieved this recognition by ensuring that the “working life” of all the different types of gaseous fire suppression systems that we provide has been safeguarded against replacement from potential future changes in Health & Safety and Environmental Legislation.

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.

Benefits of Novec 1230 System

  • One of the key advantages offered by Novec 1230 fluid 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.

  • Ideal for occupied spaces including engine and pump rooms, paint lockers, and communication and control centres.

  • Novec 1230 fluid knocks down fire in less than half the time of CO2 agents.

  • Causes no damage to delicate electronics , radar, navigation and other equipment.

  • Zero Ozone depletion potential.

  • Negligible global warming potential.

  • Atmospheric lifetime of less than 5 days.

  • Requires minimal storage space.

  • Available at 25 or 42 bar stored pressure.
