Novec 1230 (FK-5-1-12) Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems

Environmental Clean Agent Novec 1230 (FK-5-1-12)
Fire extinguisher Novec 1230 (FK-5-1-12)  is long term and reliable solution in fire protection of particular risk class. As an alternative of Halon it ensures the safety of people and high quality extinguishing, without any effects to the environment. Coefficient of ozone depletion (ODP) is zero. It just has 5 days atmospheric lifetime and the greenhouse effect is equal to zero. 

Performance of Novec 1230
According to Test Protocol UL2166 the A class fire extinguishing concentration of  Novec 1230 (FK-5-1-12) is equal to 3.5%. It is only alternative of Halon 1301, which have same concentration. Thanks to this feature Novec 1230 (FK-5-1-12) is applied instead of Halon 1301.

Novec 1230 (FK-5-1-12)
The extinguishing agent Novec 1230 (FK-5-1-12) is based on preliminary engineering calculations.
Systems can include developments based on calculations.
We designing and mounting the clean agent extinguishing system in correspondence with standard NFPA, ISO and EN depending to request.

Definition
AKRONEX’s clean agent extinguishing system is the dominant type of fire protection for valuable materials and properties, located in confined spaces. When Novec 1230 (FK-5-1-12) discharges in closed areas it extinguishes fire of A, B and C classes. The system can start up manually as running automatically by relative control and detection devices.
