What is it?

3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid

3M_Novec_Brand_Lockup_H_RGB_Pos.png

The SEVO™ 1230 FORCE500™ Clean Agent Fire Suppression System is a revolutionary new technology for clean agent systems that utilizes 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid and its unique ability to be pressurized to 500 psi (34.5 bar). It allows for longer pipe runs and smaller pipe diameters in addition to its cost saving benefits of using less clean agent in smaller and/or fewer cylinders per project. Along with these new engineering capabilities, it includes standard monitoring components such as an integrated pressure switch, pressure gauge, and gauge guard. The low vapor pressure of Novec 1230 Fluid allows for the use of low pressure welded cylinders and Schedule 40 piping. With these revolutionary features, the FORCE500™ is a standout to conventional 360 psi (25 bar) systems.

500 PSI Efficiency.

  • Less Clean Agent Needed

  • Smaller and/or Fewer Cylinders Needed

  • Increased Single Nozzle Coverage

  • Retrofit of Existing Halon & HFC Systems

  • Efficient and Flexible Pipe Networks

Retrofit capability.

SEVO Systems’ retrofit of existing halon systems is a 1 for 1 cylinder and nozzle replacement that includes a minimal cylinder footprint expansion. Retrofitting of existing halon systems features longer pipe runs, reduced nozzle pressure, resulting in a reduction of overall cost.

Note: All halon retrofit systems must be installed in accordance with approvals and listings including NFPA/ISO and local standards.

Smaller/fewer
cylinders.

The higher flow rate of the FORCE500 system allows for enhanced piping limitations. When protecting a main and subfloor hazard with a 360 psi system, a minimum additional 5% agent is required in the subfloor to compensate due to these piping limitations. By Utilizing the FORCE500 system, no additional agent is required for the subfloor or subsequent areas

Improved pipe
networks.

The FORCE500 features longer pipe lengths between the cylinder and nozzle as well as longer distances between the first and last nozzle. This allows for complex nozzle layouts with smaller pipe sizes and longer pipe runs.
