EXTINGUISHING SYSTEM with SIEX-NC ™ 1230
SIEX-NC™ 1230 stands out for its outstanding suppression power by ensuring efficient liquid agent distribution throughout the protected hazard. The equipment is optimized to work with the SIEX-NC™ (FK 5-1-12) clean agent. Known as “liquid that doesn’t wet”, this extinguishing agent far exceeds the benefits of water since it does not damage equipment and evaporates easily.
It works by total flooding, extinguishing the fire in a few seconds. It is suitable for class A, B and C hazards. It is designed to protect delicate and important hazards such as data processing and telecommunication centers, banks, museums and libraries, where water would not be viable.
New extinguishing technology.
Our extinguishing system is fully aligned to the special characteristics of the agent, providing the most reliable and cost-effective systems. This system is pressurized with dry nitrogen, providing different pressures depending on the hazard’s requirements. All these systems have internationally renowned VdS approvals.
SIEX has specific software for the system to ensure its effectiveness. Our design team also offers advice for each project, always providing the solution that best suits each need. SIEX-NC™ 1230 meets ISO 14520, UNE 15004 and NFPA 2001 standards, on which these system calculation requirements are based.
- Designed for the most serious threats, including electrical
- No damage to equipment
- It is not harmful to one´s health
- High safety margin (4.2%)
- Rapid evaporation
- Zero damage to the ozone layer
About the extinguishing agent
SIEX-NC™ 1230 is an extinguishing agent similar to water in appearance, but with much more effective extinguishing properties, including the fact that it does not wet the materials it comes into contact with.
The discharge contains a colorless, nearly odorless, non-conductive and fast-evaporating liquid.
It has the lowest level of design concentration and a higher safety margin than the Halon 1301.
Its ozone depletion potential is zero. It extinguishes the fire thanks to a cooling effect, reducing the flame’s thermal power and interrupting the combustion reaction. It guarantees flooding of the room due to its low vaporization temperature.
