Sea-Fire Offers 3M NOVEC 1230 Fire Protection

press release
Tuesday, November 08, 2011

The halon and CO2 replacement has virtually no Global Warming Potential (GWP), is non-toxic and won't harm delicate electronics.


"GWP has moved to the forefront as a major environmental concern," said Sea-Fire president Ernie Ellis.  "In the 1990s, Sea-Fire addressed ozone depletion with FM-200.  Novec 1230 also has zero ozone depletion potential, but a GWP of just one.  Compared to halon's atmospheric life span of 300 years, Novec 1230's is only 5 days. "More and more countries, authorities and consumers require or opt for environmentally sound products," Ellis continued.  "Sea-Fire is committed to supplying best-of-class solutions to our agents, distributors and dealers throughout the world." Novec 1230 interrupts fire at the molecular level by removing heat to the point where it is extinguished.  According to 3M, the fluid has the highest heat capacity of any commercially available halon alternative.  It can be used on combustible material, electrical and flammable liquid fires.


Completely safe, Novec 1230 is perfect for protecting staff-occupied areas such as engine or pump rooms, and communication or control centers.  Non-corrosive and electrically non-conductive, it vaporizes quickly.  Novec 1230 won't damage computers or sensitive equipment such as radar and sonar.  Unlike foams and powders, the extinguishing agent is clean, leaving behind no residue to clean up. Sea-Fire offers Novec 1230 in pre-engineered systems protecting areas from 25-1,500 cu. ft., as well as custom applications for spaces up to 17,500 cu. ft.  Requiring smaller and lighter cylinders than CO2 systems, storage and handling is easy and efficient.


Complying with strict global standards, Novec 1230 certifications include RINA, DNV, USCG, ABS and all major international approvals.  It will be available worldwide with no environmental restrictions. Novec 1230 was designed to avoid being subject to phase-outs.  To this end, 3M backs its product with a unique 20-year Blue Sky Warranty.  If Novec 1230 is banned from or restricted in use as a fire protection agent due to ozone depletion potential or global warming potential, 3M will refund the purchase price of the fluid. www.sea-fire.com.
