NOVEC SUPPORT & TRAINING
In conformity with the law, we at Gielle conduct personnel training courses in
fire prevention and protection.
Including the handling of emergencies in case of danger, so as to reduce the
possible risks that these situations can cause.
After the theoretical course, the notions learned are put to a practical test at
our testing field, which is authorised by the Local Health Service.
Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is a next-generation halon alternative designed to balance industry concerns for performance, human safety and the environment, which makes Novec 1230 fluid the first option to non-sustainable technologies:
Zero ozone depletion potential
5-day atmospheric lifetime
A global warming potential of 1
Clean-Agent Fire Suppression Systems
The top clean-agent systems on the market have Gielle written all over them. Choose from SUSTAINABLE technology… INERGEN Inert Gas Systems or
Systems with Novec 1230 Fluid.
Although stored in liquid form, NOVEC 1230 fluid will turn to a gas upon discharge making it an effective total flooding agent for a variety of
hazards. As a clean agent, it leaves no residue behind and will not affect sensitive high-value electronics. Typical applications include:
- Telecommunication switch rooms
- Computer and electronic control rooms
- Hazards aboard ships
- Critical military applications
NOVEC 1230 fluid has 0.0 ozone depletion potential, an atmospheric lifetime of just five days, and a global warming potential of 1.0.
NOVEC 1230 fluid is registered with the U.S. EPA under TSCA (Toxic Substances Control Act) and ELINCS (European List of Notified
Chemical Substances). It has met the requirements of registration under SNAP (Significant New Alternatives Policy) and is approved for use as
an alternative to Halon 1301 for flooding applications in occupied
NOVEC 1230 fluid suppresses fires via its cooling effect. It has been tested and listed at a design concentration of 4.2% (Class A/C hazards)
and 5.85% minimum (Class B hazards) in conjunction with a total flooding system. With the NOAEL (No Observable Adverse Effect
Level) measured at 10%, NOVEC 1230 fluid provides a substantial margin of safety in occupied spaces.
NOVEC 1230 Fire Protection Fluid complies with NFPA 2001: Standard for Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems. It is listed by Underwriters
Laboratories (UL) and Underwriters Laboratories of Canada (ULC) as a component of the Gielle Suppression System. Containers meet
the applicable U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) specifications.
Fluid at room temperature - unique amongst gaseous agents therefore compact storage
Fast extinguishing action
Over-pressurisation relief vents not normally required
Novec™ 1230 fluid poses no safety risk to people in occupied spaces
It also offers a safety margin of up to 100% - that’s higher than any other type of clean fire suppression agent
No post-fire residues or damage to protected equipment
High agent cost
NovecTM 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is stored as a liquid and discharged into the protected
space as a gas. It puts fires out quickly by a combination of heat absorption and
chemical interference with the flame.
Novec™ 1230 fluid has a zero Ozone Depletion Potential, a Global Warming Potential of just one (compared to Halon
1301 with a GWP of 6900) and an atmospheric lifetime of only five days.
Independent scientific studies have proven that Novec™ 1230 fluid poses no safety risk to people in occupied spaces at the
normal design concentration. It also offers a safety margin of up to 100% - that’s higher than any other type of clean fire
Novec™ 1230 fluid puts fires out quickly, before they can do any serious damage. It does this by reaching extinguishing
concentrations in ten seconds or less. It is effective on a wide range of Class A, B and electrical fires.
Novec™ 1230 fluid discharges as a colourless, electrically nonconductive, and non-corrosive gas. It does not leave any
residue behind, and there is no need for costly clean-up operations.
