Traditionally, SAPPHIRE Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems boast a proven record for protecting people, the environment and high value assets. Next generation SAPPHIRE PLUS 70-Bar Systems offer additional benefits.
Both systems are custom engineered to quickly suppress fires in occupied areas without causing harm and where clean-up of other agents may pose a problem. SAPPHIRE PLUS systems help reduce the footprint, installation cost and service time by offering higher fill densities to reduce the number of containers. The increased pressure also permits the containers to be located much further from the protected space and increases the ability to introduce selector valves to protect multiple hazards from a single container bank. Additionally, pipe sizes may be reduced, thereby increasing the economy and design flexibility.
3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid provides a wide safety margin because it is used at concentrations of only 4.5 to 5.9% by volume which is well below the maximum 10% concentration for safe exposure. The agent has zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), an atmospheric lifetime of between three and five days and a global warming potential of 1.0. It is the most environment-friendly chemical clean agent.
