NOVEC 450x450 1


Fike NOVEC™ 1230 system

The Fike NOVEC™ 1230 system is armed and ready to eliminate any fire hazard at a moment’s notice. Its 500 psi operating pressure provides ultimate design flexibility and ensures that the necessary amount of agent reaches every corner of the protected space in under ten seconds, extinguishing a fire in its very earliest stages.

The Fike extinguishing agent is ideal for protecting sensitive electronic equipment and irreplaceable items from fire and the damaging effects of fire sprinkler systems. It is electrically non-conductive, non-corrosive and leaves no residue behind after a system discharge.

Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid

3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is a clear, colorless and low odor fluid. It is stored as a liquid and dispensed into the hazard as an electrically non‐conductive gaseous vapor that is clear and does not obscure vision.

Novec™ 1230 Discharge Nozzles

The discharge nozzles are made of brass and are available in a 180° and 360° discharge patterns. The nozzles are designed to control the agent flow and to distribute the agent throughout the protected enclosure in a uniform, predetermined pattern and concentration.

Novec™ 1230 Impulse Valve Storage Containers

Fike’s clean agent containers are painted steel containers available in various sizes and varying fill densities. Each container is fitted with an internal siphon tube, Fike Impulse Valve assembly, pressure gauge, container nameplate and applicable mounting hardware.

Novec™ 1230 Check Valves

Check Valves are used to prevent agent loss from the open end of a manifold and/or piping system in the event that one or more containers are removed for servicing / maintenance.

Novec™ 1230 Container Recharge kits

After a system has been discharged, the container’s rupture disc valve must be rebuilt before the container can be recharged and placed back into service. The recharge kits contain all of the items required to rebuild the valve.

Novec™ 1230 Cylinder Straps

Mounting Straps / Brackets are used to secure containers to a wall or other suitable mounting surface.

Novec™ 1230 Container Pressure Gauge

The pressure gauge is mounted to each container to provide visual indication of the container pressure. The pressure gauge can be installed, removed or replaced on a charged container without removing the agent first.

Novec™ 1230 Liquid Level Indicator

The Liquid Level Indicator (LLi) provides a means of verifying the weight of agent in a container without having to remove the container and weigh it on a calibrated scale.

Novec™ 1230 Low Pressure Switch

The low pressure switch (LPS) for systems using Novec 1230 fire protection fluid is an optional item that can be added to Impulse Valve containers for the purpose of continuously monitoring the container pressure for a low‐pressure condition.

Novec™ 1230 Selector Valves

Selector Valves allow a single agent supply to be utilized for protection of multiple hazards, reducing the total amount of agent required.

Novec™ 1230 Impulse Valve Pneumatic Operator Kit

The Impulse Valve Pneumatic Operator (IVPO) provides the means to pneumatically activate the Fike Impulse Valve clean agent container by providing the force required to extend a piston that will open the rupture disc, allowing the agent to be released from the container

Novec™ 1230 Discharge Pressure Switch

Discharge Pressure Switch (DPS) is used to provide a positive pneumatic confirmation to the control system that the Fike Fire Suppression system has been discharged.

Novec™ 1230 Impulse Valve

The 1” and 3” Impulse Valves are a rupture disc (metal diaphragm), pressure operated device that allows the agent to be released from the container and into the protected enclosure via the associated piping network and discharge nozzle(s).

Novec™ 1230 Impulse Valve Operator Supervisor

The Impulse Valve Operator Supervisor (IVOS) is used to monitor the presence of the Impulse Valve Operator (IVO).

3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid

3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is a next-generation halon alternative offering outstanding performance, large margin of safety, and an excellent environmental profile.

Enhanced Fire Safety for the Oil and Gas Industry

To provide fire protection in the offices, equipment rooms and other confined spaces that form part of onshore and offshore oil and gas installations, halonbased extinguishing systems have, in the past, been a popular choice

Novec 1230 Fluid Protects the Treasures of the World

Archives and museums are repositories for some of our most precious, delicate and usually irreplaceable documents and artifacts.
