With the technical improvements achieved in clean extinguishers, it ensures a significant improvement in environmental interaction parameters as compared to halocarbon fire extinguishers Halon 1301.As a result of such improvements, 1301 has been prohibited in various countries, including Turkey, under the framework of Montreal protocol, due to its damage to the environment. Now 3M™ Novec 1230 has brought various changes that set the bar higher in the extinguisher market. 3M™ Novec 1230 extinguisher is a durable, sustainable solution for fire protection in special danger classifications. This second-generation alternative to Halon ensures high safety of humans and superior extinguishing performance with minimum environmental impact. Its ozone layer penetration coefficient (ODP) is zero. It has an atmospheric life of just 5 days, and its greenhouse effect coefficient (GWP) is 1.

What are the novelties brought by 3M™ Novec 1230 in Extinguishing Systems?

Since it is stored in drums in liquid form, it is easy to store and transport via airway without restrictions or prohibitions. It can be refilled, on site if necessary, through a simple process, without requiring complex filling facilities.


With some simple modifications it can be used with the prohibited halon systems and other existing extinguishing systems, depending on the requirements of the standards. 3M company manufactures the gas but does not directly offer the gas to the fire extinguishing market.


In a market which is controlled by the US competition board, many fire extinguishing companies have made the gas compliant with their systems, and offer them on the market in a competitive way with the required certifications For your valuable systems and products, the fire extinguishing systems involve 3M™ Novec 1230 Systems, 3M™


Novec 1230 , which has been created as an alternative solution in protecting the environments which host your valuable assets. 3M™ Novec 1230 is a clean gas extinguishing system with proven environment-friendly features. What is needed today is rapid extinguishing, sustainability and a clean gas with low emission values in human sites and with zero impact on the ozone layer. 3M™ Novec 1230 system has been approved by LPCB, UL and FM, and is included in EN15004, NFPA 2001, ISO 14520. Rapid and Effective Protection 3M™ Novec 1230 systems are designed on the principle of fast operation and heat absorption. When activated, it stops the fires in classes A,B and C within 10 seconds and does not let them spread. Refill Due to high boiling temperature, (49C) 3M™ Novec 1230 systems can be carried in low-weight drums instead of pressurized cylinders. Unlike other gases, air transportation is an acceptable method to transport non-pressurized Novec cylinders. The low pressure technology 3M™ Novec 1230 Systems have obtained international approval since it operates at 25 bar and 42 bar, and achieves a homogeneous distribution at this pressure level.
