Extinguishing system

A new extinguisher by Siemens using a special protection fluid has been designed as environmentally-friendly while being useful in mission-critical areas.

06/17/2011


Using 3M NovecFire Protection Fluid, the Sinorix 1230 from Siemens Industry Inc. is a green solution based on sustainable technology that ensures quick extinguishing in mission critical areas without negatively impacting the environment. With a global warming potential of 1 and zero ozone depletion, Sinorix 1230 allows system engineers to replace existing suppression agents and achieve U.S. Green Building Council LEED-EB certification credits. The Sinorix 1230 is a nontoxic, nonflammable, and nonconductive solution that requires no cleanup after discharge. The extinguishing system is designed to interrupt combustion processes at its earliest stage. The agent suppresses fire before there is enough heat to damage adjacent equipment or ignite other potentially combustible materials. At room temperature, Sinorix remains a liquid, but it behaves like a gas when the suppression system is activated. Siemens also offers a range of storage options for agent storage capacity from 16 to 1,200 pounds in a single cylinder.
