FORCE500™

Supplied by SEVO Systems.

The SEVO™ 1230 FORCE500™ Clean Agent Fire Suppression System is a revolutionary new technology for clean agent systems that utilizes 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid and its unique ability to be pressurized to 500 psi (34.5 bar). It allows for longer pipe runs and smaller pipe diameters in addition to its cost saving benefits of using less clean agent in smaller and/or fewer cylinders per project. Along with these new engineering capabilities, it includes standard monitoring components such as an integrated pressure switch, pressure gauge, and gauge guard. The low vapor pressure of Novec 1230 FLuid allows for the use of low pressure welded cylinders and Schedule 40 piping. With these revolutionary features, the FORCE500 is a standout to conventional 360 psi (25 bar) systems.

The higher flow rate of the FORCE500 system allows for enhanced piping limitations. When protecting a main and subfloor hazard with a 360 psi system, a minimum additional 5% agent is required in the subfloor to compensate due to these piping limitations. By utilizing the FORCE500 system, no additional agent is required for the subfloor or subsequent areas.

The higher pressure of the FORCE500 system allows the use of smaller cylinder sizes compared to 360 psi systems. In large, multi-cylinder systems, the FORCE500 requires fewer cylinders than the equivalent 360 psi systems due to its added pressure.
