Tyco SAPPHIRE systems provide a proven and reliable fast acting, clean agent solution that is safe for use in occupied spaces.  
Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is an advanced “clean agent” fire suppression material, used to protect high-value assets such as computers, switching equipment, cameras, disk arrays and other critical devices. By definition, clean agents do not leave a residue behind when they discharge, so they do not damage sensitive electronics. They are also electrically non-conductive. This means that fires involving energized electrical equipment can be extinguished without powering down – avoiding expensive service interruptions and data loss.
Based on a patented chemistry from Novec 1230 fluid offers a number of important advantages over conventional clean agents such as inert gas and CO2. For example, Novec 1230 fluid allows for more efficient use of floor space – requiring only about one-fourth or fewer of the number of cylinders used in a CO2 or inert gas system, adding significantly less weight to floor loads. Having fewer cylinders also results in a system that is less complex, and typically less costly to install and maintain.
Equally important, Novec 1230 fluid offers zero ozone depletion potential, a 5-day atmospheric lifetime and a global warming potential of 1 – an environmental profile that hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and other halocarbon agents can’t begin to match. Because of this, Novec 1230 fluid – unlike HFCs – is not targeted for phase-down or regulatory restrictions anywhere in the world, making it today’s sustainable choice for clean agent fire protection.
