    • Manual Actuation
    • Pressure Switch
      • Low pressure
      • Operational

Cylinder Valves:

The cylinder valves are of a pressure-seated high flow rate design, in order to meet the rapid discharge time specified in NFPA 2001. Each has a brass body, a brass piston with resilient seat, a pressure releasing pilot check, a safety disc assembly, a pressure gauge, and an electric solenoid valve. This relieves the pressure above the piston and permits the piston to travel upward, thus fully opening the valve and permitting the agent to discharge through the outlet. The discharge outlet is fired with an anti-recoil plug, which is a safety device to prevent violent movement of the cylinder in the event of discharge while the cylinder valve is not connected to the piping system structure.

Each 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid fill and use shall be in accordance with the instructions in the pre-engineered or engineered system design manual as required by UL Listing or FM approval.
