SEVOSystems Mission: Safe, Environmental Choice

SEVO Systems products revolutionize the way clean agent fire suppression systems are designed, installed and maintained. We take advantage of the unique chemical characteristics of a fluid to store it as a liquid, but deliver it as a gas.

SEVO Systems' exclusive mission is to develop and commercialize equipment and systems optimized for the unique properties of 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid for the use in fire protection, differentiating SEVO from all other OEM's.

System Leader in Mission Critical Fire Protection

SEVO Systems is a manufacturer of waterless fire protection utilizing 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid in many industries including oil and gas, marine, power generation, telecommunications and electrical data and control.

SEVO Systems' distribution is established in over 55 countries in North America, South America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East providing full engineering and mission critical services to support our distributors and end users. Our engineered and pre-engineered total flooding systems have been tested and approved by UL, ULC and FM Global, as well as by other major international agencies and marine approval bodies.

With zero ozone depletion potential, a global warming potential of one and a short atmospheric lifetime of just five days, Novec 1230 Fluid is the first chemical halon replacement to offer viable, long-term, sustainability for special hazards fire protection. Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid has the largest safety margin of any chemical halon replacement available due to the fact that its use concentration is much lower than its NOAEL.

Our total flooding systems are available at either 360 or 500 psi storage pressure. We are the only company to develop clean agent fire suppression systems with Novec 1230 Fluid at 500 psi using conventional welded cylinders. This higher storage pressure allows for a "True Retrofit" of existing halon systems by utilizing existing pipe networks in over 90% of cases. In new construction, higher pressure allows for the use of longer pipe runs as well as small pipe diameters, saving on overall cost.

Our SEVO stand-alone "plug and play" modular units work well in atypical as well as in standard installations. These factory-built units, with integrated detection and control, arrive pre-piped and ready to install. Our cost efficient modular units have become the industry standard for telecom, power generation and data centers, allowing for a quick and easy installation.

With our Clean Agent Pumping System, you can maintain and refill cylinders on site. The SEVO CAPS System eliminates the need to remove agent storage cylinders from the field and ensures that cylinders can be refilled and returned to service within 24 hours per NFPA 2001 and other international standards.

SEVO Systems History

SEVO Systems was formed in 2001 to develop and commercialize a revolutionary new technology, Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid, invented and marketed by 3M for use in fire suppression systems. This development represented a major breakthrough in halon replacement technology - combining high extinguishing efficiency with excellent environmental, health and safety properties. Our Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems exclusively utilize 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid.

SEVO represents a "safe, environmental choice" and having working hand in hand with 3M during the development of Novec 1230 Fluid, became its first OEM partner to commercialize a UL approved fire suppression system utilizing this new technology.
