When deciding on clean agents for fire protection, you may not know how drastically one clean agent can differ from another. For instance, clean agents like hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), are potent greenhouse gases that are targeted for regulatory restrictions and phase-downs. 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is not. Novec 1230 fluid is created for life - for the life of your system, for the life your people, for the life of our planet and for the life of your investment.

Kidde Fire Systems launched its new clean agent fire suppression platform, the Kidde® Clean Agent Advanced Delivery System (ADS) using 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid. According to the release, the newest system boasts “the best coverage, highest nozzle, smallest diameter pipe and longest pipe runs.” It also offers increased agent flow rates and improved agent vaporization for better coverage, while leveraging the performance and sustainability of Novec 1230 fluid. The new system provides more flexibility for cylinder storage in, or at long distances from, the protected areas. It may also reduce costs by using smaller diameter piping and directional valves to optimize piping networks from a single bank of cylinders.
