New Technologies in Clean Agents

Original Air Date: April 17, 2013

One of the challenges in fire protection is providing proper suppression systems in sensitive areas with high dollar equipment or irreplaceable artifacts. For years clean agent systems and early detection has been a large part of this solution. However, as the areas we are protecting become more challenging due to unique designs we need to turn to new technologies that outperform the current mindset. Items that play an important role in providing optimal solutions for these difficult applications include:

  • Location of cylinders
  • Pipe sizing
  • Multi zone systems

In this presentation we will explore advancements in higher pressure Novec 1230 and FM200 systems. We will review new cutting edge technologies that will allow for selector valve systems never before done with certain chemical agents. This discussion will help us to understand the advantages of these new technologies.
